Summer in Western Greece

Sunny holidays in Western Greece

A celebration of sun and sea. What is Western Greece like in the summer?

It is tumbling into sparkling cobalt blue seas for cooling dives and moments of peace bathed in the scarlet sunsets. It is the tasty ouzomeze – the Greek version of tapas traditionally served with ouzo – in taverns by the waves. It is the feel of nature’s more mature summer caress and the offer of its abundant fruit to the traveler. It is the sense that you are tuning into the historic past by treading the ground where its masterpieces were created. It is beaches and clubs resounding to the infectious sounds of summer hits… and it is the overwhelming hospitality of its inhabitants. In a nutshell, it is Western Greece waiting with a smile for you to fill your soul with shiny summer memories.

The attractions of the sea

Which beach can one choose from among the endless list that Western Greece offers? Golden Kourouta, Arkoudi with the fine sand,  sandy Samiko  beach or the vast stretch of sumptuous shoreline from Zacharo all the way to Kaiafas in the Land of Olympia? Or perhaps Kalogria, Platanos, Lakopetra in the Τhe Vivid Land of Achaia Land? Maybe the sandy beach of Louros, picturesque Mytikas, Vathiavali with the sapphire waters in the Land of Discovery? It really is impossible to do justice to the list in just a few sentences!

The historic past unfolds before your eyes

Admire Hermes by Praxiteles, an ode to beauty in the statue form in the Archaeological Museum of Olympia and after the artistry comes the ingenuity of the ancient Greeks in the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology in Katakolo. A collection of exhibits in Messolonghi city museum, reminding us all of the struggle and the sacrifice in the name of freedom by its people, can easily move any visitor to tears. Finally, there are also exhibits of great historical value in the Archaeological Museum of Aigio.

To satisfy the palate…
