“I would definitely say that the best view in Greece is in Santorini. The view from the Caldera with the whitewashed houses and little churches with the blue domes is a sight that will stay in your memory forever.” Chrysoula Manika, Greece, Travel Passionate blog
“This is tough. In Athens, the view from Mt Lycabettus at sunset is amazing. Of course, everyone is familiar with the white buildings and blue water of Santorini. And from the ground, the monasteries built on the tower rock formations in Meteora are an amazing site! ” Sean Boyle and Jennifer Evans,USA (and beyond!), Venturists

“It’s no secret Greece is privy to some of the most beautiful sunsets the world has ever seen. The island of Santorini makes a living from its sunsets. We have our fair share of awe-inspiring sea views and sunsets on the mainland too — you’d be remiss to pass over a sunset at Kavouri in the Athenian Riviera. But the view that I keep going back to is the one from the A for Athens hotel rooftop bar. It’s right in the heart of the city in Monastiraki Square, and a stone’s throw from the Parthenon. It’s the perfect spot to lounge with the city at your feet, sip on a deliciously tangy mojito and take in the majestic view of a perfectly-lit Parthenon – just like the ancients did.” Maria Carras, Greece, Sun + Shine blog

“When you are talking about Athens, I love the view from the hills of Athens like Lycabettus Hill, Strefi Hill, the Arcopolis area and Fillipappou Hill. From the islands, I think anytime at sunset facing the sea – you can’t go wrong! ” Marissa Tejada, USA living in Greece, My Greece, My Travels and Chasing Athens
“A rooftop bar with a view of the Parthenon at night is quite a sight.” Alisa Kennedy, American expat living in Ireland, Travel Sandwich
“I quite liked visiting Sounio and looking out to see by the Temple of Poseidon.” Rebecca Hall, British living in Greece, Life Beyond Borders blog
“I’d say the best view in Greece is a very personal choice. Greece has amazing marine vistas, mountain sights and obviously, lots of cultural sites. I have the feeling you’re pretty much spoilt for choice when it comes to best views in Greece. A moment I thoroughly enjoyed was simply having a coffee at the Acropolis Museum restaurant, looking out the window at the impressive Acropolis. It is a million euro view which only cost me 2€ that I paid for an espresso. I couldn’t help thinking that, had the Acropolis been set in another European capital, the price would have been so much different. Enjoying coffee in a historical setting and contemplating centuries of civilisation is an elevating feeling and a privilege.” Silvia Martin, Belgium, Silvia Martin Travel blog
