TripAdvisor: Greece in Top Travellers Choice 2018

Greece was chosen as one of the most renowned destinations for its museums and monuments in Tripadvisor's Travellers’ Choice Awards 2018 by its users. The awards are given out on a yearly basis after processing millions of reviews and opinions from travellers around the world.


Specifically, Crete ranked fourth in Europe and fifth worldwide in the Top 25 Destinations. Comments in Tripadvisor describe the island of Crete as a real gem with green-blue waters, long sandy or pebbly beaches, rich in archaeological sites, myths and legends that are reflected upon the ancient ruins and cultural attractions. A Tripadvisor’s review urges the readers to visit one of the numerous archaeological sites while on a break from soaking up the sun.



The Acropolis of Athens was ranked tenth among the most renowned monuments in Europe and sixteenth worldwide, in the Top 25 Landmarks category, with comments referring to its rich history, architecture, the beauty and locale that transcends our little minor world. Other nine famous Greek monuments were announced in the same category: The Archaeological site of Delphi (Central Greece), The Hephaestus Temple (Athens), the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus (Peloponnese), Spinalonga Islet in Lasithi (Crete), the Palace of the Grand Master on Rhodes Island (Dodecanese), the Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa on Amorgos Island (Cyclades), the castle of Monemvasia (Peloponnese), the Acropolis of Lindos on Rhodes (Dodecanese) and the Monastery of Great Meteorou in Kalampaka (Thessaly).

In the Top 25 Museums category, the Acropolis Museum, ranked third in Europe and eighth worldwide. Comments noted that the new “building is as stunning as the treasures it houses. A clear glass walkway reveals the ruins and current excavations.”


Last but not least, in the Top 25 Beaches category, Elafonisi beach (Chania, Crete) was ranked second in Europe and eleventh worldwide. One review said that the sea was calm and beautiful. The colours are intense, light blue water, pink sand. Paradise!
