Greece Easter 2018 | Athens Beauty & Traditions, 5 days from 300€

Every few years, "Western" (Catholic and Protestant) Easter and Greek Orthodox Easter coincide, this is the case for 2018 Easter.  Easter is an enormously popular time to take a break under the Greek sun and enjoy with some touch of Tradition. Greece is just the ideal Easter Destination because it combines an almost summery weather, traditional festivities and cultural events and wonderful resorts. The question is: where to go? Our Travel Agency has selected 3 sample options to suit all tastes!
For quieter Easter breaks with a hint of culture, try Athens & Andros Island    where the temperatures are warm but not unbearable and a rich program of celebration takes place close enough to the beaches.
