Greece is a very popular country to travel to (with good reason)! I challenge you to take a look at these pictures and NOT be tempted to just leave right away!
If you really want to go, maybe you’ve noticed, but Greece is not a destination that we often spot at discounted prices on our cheap flight deals page. But that does not mean that you should pay the $1,000 to $1,500 that you will often find on flight search tools when you look for your flight from Canada to Athens.
No, if you’re flexible with your dates, you can often save hundreds of dollars by simply applying our multi-ticket itinerary technique: flights within Europe are often under $100 roundtrip, very often under $200 roundtrip. So buy the cheapest deal to Europe (often $600-$800 depending on your departure city) and buy a roundtrip from there to Greece. Sometimes it will be worth it (and you get to visit a bonus city on your self-made stopover, yay!)
Soon, we’ll share an ideal itinerary to discover Greece and also an article about the hanging monasteries of Meteora specifically very soon. To be sure you don’t miss anything, subscribe to our free newsletter (if you haven’t already done so)!
So here are 15 pictures that will make you want to go to Greece.
A classic. The famous island with all the gorgeous white buildings.

We cheated here with a video instead of a pic because the monasteries of Meteora are well worth it.

BONUS. Santorini at night.
Another one of Santorini (how to resist). This time illuminated at night, with the Moon in the background.

Greece is simply stunning. We hope we inspired you enough to book a flight to Greece soon! We recommend avoiding the summer season obviously (like the rest of Europe) unless you really don’t have any other choice. May or September would be pretty good.
