Greece is a favourite destination for Australians and images of its classical ruins are familiar to everyone. But Greece is so much more. There are islands where the buildings resemble those of a French town, towns where women in traditional Muslim costumes abound, wooded areas where bears can be found and islands whose many inhabitants now live in Kensington, Kingsgrove or Double Bay. This program, with special insights into travel secrets, will help you plan a great holiday.
