Coach Hire & Bus Rentals for Every Occassion
Greece is a beautiful and varied country in South Eastern Europe. It is surrounded by thousands of islands and has coasts on four seas: the Aegean, the Ionian, the Cretan and the Mediterranean. The Greek Islands are hugely popular tourist destinations, known for their beaches and hot weather; but the main historical and cultural sights lie on the mainland. As Greece is one of the world’s oldest civilizations, there are many sights of historical importance to discover. Renting a bus in Greece offers you the chance to see the sights in comfort.
Greece has a population of just over 11 million. The language spoken is Greek, and the currency is the Euro. Greece does technically have a Royal Family, but the King was deposed in 1973, and since then Greece has been ruled by a President. The Parliament building is the Old Royal Palace which can be found in Syntagma Square, within the capital, Athens. The geography of Greece is varied, with ancient and modern cities, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful beaches.
Greece is hugely popular with tourists, and its busiest airport, Athens, accommodates 12.5 million passengers each year. Other sizeable airports on mainland Greece include Heraklion and Thessaloniki.
Whichever airport you are arriving at, Rent A Bus can offer you and your travel companions a reliable and comfortable journey straight to your accommodation. We will collect you from the airport in an air-conditioned coach or minibus, so you won’t need to worry about finding a taxi or public transport after your long flight. We will also take you back to the airport at the end of your stay.
Mainland Greece offers a wealth of attractions and sights of major importance, and sometimes a guided tour won’t take you everywhere you want to go. Renting a coach or minibus in Greece with Rent A Bus offers you the chance to personalize your own guided tour. You and your party will be accompanied by a professional tour guide, who can show you round all the main cultural and historical sights and let you know some of the history attached to them. The tour can be tailored to take in all the landmarks you particularly want to see, and also include lesser known sights if you wish; the itinerary is yours to choose!
The Greek capital, Athens, is one of the most historically important cities in the world, with architecture dating back as far as the 5th Century BC. The most famous example is the Acropolis citadel, topped by the iconic Parthenon temple with its marble pillars. Artefacts from Ancient Greek civilization can be found at the Acropolis Museum. Athens is also a thriving modern city, and the Plaka district offers plenty of shopping and dining.
The Peloponessos is another culturally significant area, as it is home to Olympia, where the first ever Olympic Games took place. Visitors can still run on the original running track! Not far from here, you can also explore the Diros Caves and the seafood restaurants of Gythio.
The port city of Thessaloniki has some well-preserved examples of architecture including the ruins of Roman Emperor Galerius’ palace, and the Ottoman White Tower, which houses a museum dedicated to the city’s history.
Macedonia offers the most spectacular scenery, such as the Olympus mountain range, which contains Greece’s highest mountain, Mount Olympus.
No vacation would be complete without sampling the cuisine and nightlife. The restaurants offer delicious lamb kebabs with olives, hummus and brown rice, and the drink of choice is Ouzo. The most popular nightlife spots include Kassandra in Halkidiki, and the Kolonaki and Psiri districts of Athens.
