Welcome Spring!

It’s spring: Time for joy, open hearts, extroverted moods, and recreation! The earth turns into an endless thick green carpet coloured over by wild flowers and beneficiary herbs which you can use to make your own natural cosmetics. The dazzling sunshine lures us to the green spaces of Athens for a wonderful picnic, or to the wonder of nature at the straits of the Nestos River. The nature’s resurrection goes hand in hand with the celebration of the Jesus Christ’s one. For this year’s Easter holiday choose the stone uniqueness of Meteora.
But spring is also the time for new ideas to spring to mind for the Visit Greece web team. In our newsletter find new tips, suggestions and videos, along with a section that will be putting Greece on the spotlight. Let us feature our Upcycling project and Mythical Peloponnese for April.

We hope you will enjoy our new us!
