GREECE , THE LAND OF MEN AND GODS



A single trip isn't sufficient to tour the entire country. You must choose:

The Greek islands or the Greek mainland; the Greek beaches or the Greek monuments;

Ancient Greece or Byzantine Greece; tranquil Greece or tourist Greece ;

And you must choose once more, amongst the islands.

THE COUNTRY'S HISTORY - and the history of the people- is particularly rich and complex.

From the Neolithic period to our days, Greece has known a series of rich civilizations- Cretan (2000-1450 B.C.), Mycenaean (1600-1200 B.C.), Classic (from the VI century B.C), Byzantine (VI-XV centuries A.D.)- but also a series of vicissitudes which have brought their sudden disappearance or their slow disintegration: the mysterious disappearance of the Mycenaean civilization XII B.C., the Roman invasion, the Crusades, the Turkish occupation, the domination of foreign rulers, world wars, civil wars, military coups.
