With over 2,500 years of history, Greece is home to an array of inspiring cultural experiences - from breathtaking monuments to vibrant nightlife and entertainment. No other place on earth offers such a fascinating blend of modern life and the ancient world.
And nowhere does ancient history come to life with such vigour and passion as it does on the bustling and exciting streets of Athens. The Acropolis, Parthenon and Temple of Zeus dominate the view of Europe's oldest city, but Athens today is as much about fantastic restaurants, excellent shopping and a buzzing music scene, as it is about world-class art, archaeological collections and unique relics.
If you're after less sightseeing and more sun worshipping, journey to the medieval town of Rhodes and its beautiful stretches of golden beach. Legend has it that the Sun God Helios blessed this island, which might explain why it now enjoys 300 days of sunshine every year.

Bustling and fascinating in equal measure, Israel is a destination like no other.
On its Mediterranean coast lies the modern city of Tel Aviv. Less than a century old, Tel Aviv offers a stimulating, diverse cultural mix and vibrant nightlife. With its golden sands, it's certainly a sun worshipper's paradise - but there's a lot more to experience than that. From the spicy orientalism of the Yemenite Quarter to the Miami chic of the pastel pink beachfront condos, sidewalk cafes also give the place a hint of European flavour.
For culture it's well worth visiting the Museum of the Diaspora as well as the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, while you can pick up a bargain at the daily Carmel Street market.
At Israel's southernmost tip, Eilat also guarantees fantastic weather, great beaches, plenty of water sports and a large selection of restaurants and bars. And why not venture a little further afield with a day trip, and float in the Dead Sea and its invigorating minerals?
