Great Photo Opps in Greece

  1. Meteora – Meteora means “suspended in the air” and this sight is well worth the visit when you’re camera happy. Located in central Greece, this is a collection of six monasteries (the first of which was founded in the 1300s) situated on top of several rock pillars.
  2. Filopappos Hill – opposite of the Acropolis, the hill is also known as the Hill of the Muses, since the myth says it used to be the home of the 9 muses. The hill is covered by pine trees and its top is only accessible by foot. Here you will find incredible panoramic views over Athens, the acropolis and the Saronic Gulf.
  3. Delos – The ancient Holy Island of Delos is a vast archaeological site and for many hundreds of years it was the religious centre of Greece. It was the centre of the circle of the Cyclades islands and the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis and as such, has much to offer in terms of capturing history.
  4. Oia – a small town and former community in the South Aegean and the highest village on Santorini island. At the pinnacle point of Oia you will find the ruined castle, the seat of the Argyri family under the Venetians, which serves as a lookout point with a stunning 360-degree view.
  5. Spetses – an island in the Saronic  Gulf is a world of its own outside the booming tourism areas, with horse drawn carriages taking visitors past neoclassical houses edged with bougainvillea, harbours with fishing boats, deserted beaches and cobbled streets.
