LGBTQ+ TRAVEL GUIDE TO GREECE
Greece is the birthplace of democracy, the Olympic Games, Western Philosophy and Western theories of tragedy and comedy. It is also ancient, with the capital, Athens, one of the oldest and longest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Greek cuisine is also testament to its rich history with influences dating back to the Ancient Greek Empire, the Romans, Byzantine and Ottomans.Greece has more than 2,000 islands, of which around 170 are populated. The largest is Crete and the most popular are Santorini and Mykonos, particularly with LGBTQ+ travelers in the summer months. As such, there are an abundance of white sandy Mediterranean beaches to discover. Greece is also one of the latest European countries that has announced a reopening of its borders. Visitors are allowed entry into Greece as long as they can provide proof of COVID vaccination or a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours before arrival.
