Greek islands and cultural centers combining the ancient world and modern spirits: Istanbul – Piraeus (Athens)

Philippi: an ancient city

A walk through Philippi is a walk through the ages. Originally a Thracian settlement, the city was conquered around 355 BC by Philip of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great, before it fell under Roman rule roughly 200 years later. It was here in around 50 AD that the Apostle Paul set up the first Christian congregation in Europe. The site’s well-maintained amphitheater still hosts plenty of performances and events. 

Authentic Greece: the Sporades

Rebetiko music exuding from a tavern, craggy cliffs lining fine sandy beaches, chalk-white chapels gleaming under a deep-blue sky – does this Greek idyll actually exist? It certainly does on the Sporades! It is almost like a picture-perfect paradise, particularly on the island of Skopelos. Discover its narrow streets and small squares on a trip ashore. 

Cultural highlights in Thessaloniki

Many tourists just see Thessaloniki as a stopover on their way to Greece’s main holiday destinations. But Greece’s second largest city has plenty to offer. Alongside the White Tower (the city’s most famous landmark) and notable early Christian and Byzantine churches, Thessaloniki is also home to a multitude of interesting art and cultural establishments, such as the Archaeological Museum, the Ethnological Museum and the Museum for Contemporary Art.
