Wonders of Spring

FLY ME TO THE MOON TRAVEL NEWSLETTER VOLUME 48

Dear Traveler,

Καλό μήνα! As we enter the month of March, and spring is just around the corner — we’ve sprung into action preparing new exciting itineraries.

In our “Wonders of Spring” issue we’ve complied a wonderful blend of cultural, natural and historical aspects. The majority of the Greek holidays are centered around the sea, and then there is the historical significance of this inspiring country. We bring these two worlds together and introduce you to the tales of the sunken antiquities which dot the seabed of Greece. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

Easter is a remarkable time to visit Greece, and in our previous stories we’ve shared the beautiful local traditions which are celebrated on the Greek islands. Easter in Athens, is equally enchanting. The Greek capital is full of glorious happenings and events. Do check out our post, and we’ll be delighted to send you an itinerary proposal.

Greece is much more than sun and sea, — the region of Epirus is one of the country’s best kept secrets by far. One of Europe’s oldest lakes is found in Ioannina. A city of many contrasts that will inspire any discerning traveler. The Switzerland of Greece — should definitely be on your next Greece itinerary.

We thank you for your continuous support, and send you our best wishes from sunny Greece.
Sincerely yours,

Elena Papanicolaou
