Greece Travel Guide
The country of Greece has captured the imagination for at least 2000 years. It is famous for its culture of classical antiquity as well as a delicious selection of food and a bountiful diversity of landscapes. In many ways, ancient Greece represented the birth of Western civilisation as we know it, leaving behind a legacy of democracy, language, philosophy, science and culture. Modern day Greece is just as vibrant.
Travel in Greece
You can travel in Greece either by car or public transport. Whilst the car offers a level of flexibility not found in public transport, for example when travelling to remote destinations, you might be deterred by the high accident rate and the crazy nature of Greek driving in the cities.
The road network in Greece is well developed and a great way to see the country. This quality does often result in toll roads, so it is always a good idea to carry some spare change with you.
Intercity buses are another popular method of travel. The buses are comfortable and government subsidised, resulting in a myriad of routes and cheap tickets. Rail travel is a bit more hit and miss. It is only in the last ten years or so that Greece has rediscovered the value of rail travel and so far there are few areas of the country that have benefitted from the heavy investment made.

Ferries are, of course, a good way to travel around the different islands of Greece and AFerry is a great place to buy these ferry tickets.
