SecretGreece has done something that had never happened before in Greece!! We went an 11 days road trip in Greece focusing on the mainland (I am afraid no islands)!!
This was an amazing experience as we visited so many beautiful sites in Greece that usually remain hidden and under tourists radar.
If you follow us a long time now, you would know that we love secrets and especially revealing them! And this is exactly what we will do this time as well!
You can find the 1st part of our road trip here and our first stop was Peloponnese, where we stayed 3 nights in Nafplio, Gerolimenas and Pylos. Needless to say that Peloponnese is an extraordinary place with small hidden treasures, like the village of Kardamyli, Limeni, Koroni etc.
West and North Greece
Then we directed to West and North Greece (you can find the 2st part of our road trip here) through breathtaking bridge Rio-Antirio, where we passed through mountains and lakes and we stayed 3 nights, one at not so famous Thermos and one at picturesque Parga! Next stop was Kastoria, which is built around a lake and Edessa, which has a reputation for its magnificent waterfalls! Also, through our route in North Greece, we visited amazing villages, like Nymfaio and Metsovo etc.
Then we passed through Thessaloniki and we were going towards Kavala, Ksanthi and Drama, where a personal problem arose and we had to go back to Thessaloniki and change our plan. It was very disappointing but these things happen on a road trip so we had to remain calm and continue our journey to Central Greece (you can read our 3rd and final post here)
Next two final stops were in Meteora – where no words are enough to describe the place(!) and Pelion mountain, which a perfect place to visit during winter and summer!
We knew of course about Greece’s beauty, but all these images and different sides of this country surprises us unexpectedly. We were drinking our coffee in an isolated village and the same afternoon we were swimming at an extraordinary beach…
So, check our post about our road trip and wonder….
How your paradise looks like??
