Traditions, tradition and traditions, this is what Greece is all about.

Greek Easter is all about: Breaking eggs, having roasted lamb, preparing bonfires, taking part in a rocket war, throwing pots and many more… traditions

Corfu: A world- popular Easter destinations.
On Holy Saturday morning it rains “Botides” – huge, heavy, red painted pots! A tradition that finds its roos thousands of years ago. This custom re-enacts the earthquake that followed Christ’s Resurrection, people from all over the world visit Corfu to experience this fascinating unique custom. Have your own pot, find the perfect balcony, wait for the clock to strike 11 a.m. and go!

Chios: Ready, set, fire on! Rocket war is on!
Rocket war is a 200- years old– custom, perfect for those who love adrenaline, it is dangerous but, offers a unique experience. Everything is ready since Holy Saturday morning; the anticipation is real until the moment when the clock strikes midnight and the rockets are on fire! In the rocket war there are two opposing parishes that are involved, only 400 meters away from each other. Tradition has it, that the goal is each parish to hit the bell tower of the church, of the other parish. Who is going to win in 2019?

Athens: A busy city perfect for some isolation
Athens, during Easter is empty and prices of hotels are way too tempting! People, around this time are looking to get away in the countryside and that makes Athens the perfect destinations for those who want to experience all the good choices that urban life has to offer without all the big city’s noise. Venues, restaurants, touristic sites are crowd less, streets are empty, beaches are all yours.

A place where history of 5.000 years blends perfectly with pristine nature!

Greece is known for 3 things: ancient civilization, amazing landscapes and high developed tourism and MICE infrastructure. 
Beloved by people, Greece is so rich in culture and beauty that it never seems to be completely explored, no matter how many times you visit it. After all, this is one of the reasons that included Greece in the list with the top 20 tourist destinations worldwide.
 We are proud to state that “Greece can host any kind of event”! The diversity in venues in Greece is rich, sophisticated and meet high standards, able to host events from 20 up to 8000 guests. Your choices can rank from a floating venue, beach location, hip modern, industrial venue up to historical locations that have recently been offered for event charters.

A unique combination of the old and the new, set up against a spectacular Mediterranean landscape; a world-famous past; an exciting present: Ancient and brand new at the same time, Athens inspires and seduces its visitors, leaving its mark in their hearts and minds. An award-winning airport (Athens International Airport), currently serving more than 136 cities with direct flights. There are 30,000 rooms to suit all budgets and 95, 000² of conference space to meet the requirements of the most demanding of events.

Many of these Greek beaches have been awarded the blue flag under the Blue Flags of Europe Program. Some of the oldest European civilizations developed on the Greek islands (Cycladic, Minoan civilizations, etc.), so therefore the islands have unique archeological sites, a distinctive architectural heritage and the fascinating local traditions of a centuries-old and multifaceted civilization. The ideal climate, safe waters, premium hospitality services and small distances between ports and coasts, have made the Greek islands extremely popular for MICE tourism.

Greece is a beloved destination and in addition to the more familiar islands, the mainland offers plenty of options for a classic Mediterranean experience! Enjoy a wealth of archaeological sites, fascinating culture, spectacular coastline and picture-perfect scenery! Many locations in South Greece (Peloponnese) or North Greece (Thessaloniki, Halkidiki, Volos) offer five-star hotels and conference venues with state-of-the-art facilities that constitute an ideal MICE destination in Greece!
