Greece is an amazing country. Its climate is enjoyable, pleasant, most of the year. Its people are friendly and open to travelers from America. The food is much like what you have had if you have ever eaten in any Mediterranean country, or a Greek Restaurant. Greece is also a safe country and travel within the country is easy. It is also, easily one of my favorite places in the world.
I never tire of Greece. The mountains are amazing. The sea is beautiful. The antiquities are out of this world, literally from some of the most important periods in human history.
There are two cities in the northeastern part of the country that are interesting from a historical point of view. We include them on our Steps of Paul tours in Greece. They are Kavala, which is referred to in the New Testament as Neopolis, and Philippi, which is now an ancient archeological site. Together they are worth a day on any tour you do that puts you close to them.
