Tourists from around the world love visiting Greece; however, they often flock to popular destinations, such as Santorini. Following are a few lesser-known Greek destinations that are worth exploring:
-Methoni. One of the seven cities that Agamemnon offered to Achilles, Methoni is a unique village at the tip of the Peloponnese. In addition to being home to Kastro, a 15th-century castle and fortress featuring Venetian architecture, Methoni offers an abundance of taverns and a beach near the ruins for visitors to enjoy.
- Kythnos. The first island stop along the ferry route on the Western Cyclades, Kythnos is perfect for visitors looking to relax. From its healing thermal springs in Loutra to the cave houses of Messaria, there is plenty to explore on the island. Alongside these attractions, Kythnos features great beaches and several seaside restaurants.
- Chania. Located on the northern shore of Crete, Chania is a port town located west of Heraklion. Although the town often gets a bit crowded during the summer, being in Chania puts tourists near many of Crete’s large beaches found to the west. Further, the buildings around the harbor are ripe with Venetian architectural heritage.
