Taking an Architecture Tour in Greece?

I'm planning a trip to Greece and I'm really interested in taking an architecture tour to explore the rich history and unique styles of Greek architecture. Could anyone recommend reputable tour companies or guides who specialize in architecture tours? I'm particularly interested in visiting iconic sites like the Acropolis in Athens, ancient Greek temples, and perhaps lesser-known gems off the beaten path.

Additionally, what are some must-see architectural wonders that shouldn't be missed? Are there specific regions or cities known for their architectural significance that I should prioritize?

Any tips on what to expect during an architecture tour in Greece, including the best times to visit these sites or any local customs to be aware of, would be greatly appreciated.

Cruising the Ionian Islands Questions

The Ionian Islands have captivated my imagination for years, with their storied history, lush landscapes, and crystal-clear waters. The thought of waking up each morning to a new island and a new experience is thrilling, to say the least.

However, I'm a bit at sea (pun intended) about where to begin planning such a voyage. Here are a few questions I have:
  1. Which Cruise Line Should I Consider?
  • Are there specific cruise lines that you would recommend based on personal experience that cater well to exploring the Ionian Islands?
  1. Best Time of Year to Go?
  • When is the ideal time to take this cruise? I've read varying reports on weather and crowd sizes throughout the year.
  1. Must-Visit Islands and Attractions
  • For those of you who have traveled to the Ionian Islands, which islands were your favorite, and are there any must-see attractions?
Thanks in advance!

Seeking Tips: Top Culinary Spots in Greece?

I am planning a trip to Greece and in need of some culinary guidance. Where are the must-visit spots for authentic Greek cuisine? From Athens to the islands, I'm looking for local favorites, hidden gems, and any must-try dishes. Whether it's a bustling market or a cozy taverna, I want to hear about the places that left you craving more. Any tips on where to find the freshest seafood or the crispiest spanakopita?

I would live it if you would share your recommendations and help me plan the ultimate foodie adventure. Looking forward to the trip for sure!

Best places in Greece to see the Venetian influences?

I am interested in the Venetian influences that are interwoven into certain parts of the country. From the architecture to the local customs, I understand that the reach of the Venetian Republic left a notable mark that can still be felt today.

I'm in the midst of planning an itinerary focused on exploring these influences and I’d love to hear from you about the must-visit spots where one can best experience the essence of the Venetian presence in Greece.

Do any of you have recommendations for specific towns, buildings, ruins, or even local festivities that embody this cultural blend? Any hidden gems or lesser-known locations that surprised you with their Venetian charm?

Of course, I expect Crete, with its famed Venetian fortresses and the romantic old town of Chania, to be part of this list. But I'm certain there is a wealth of places, perhaps on other islands or on the mainland, which equally showcase this unique period of history. I also know there are influences in Corfu. Is there anywhere else?
