Best places in Greece for photos

The Parthenon in Athens is undoubtedly one of the most iconic places to take photographs in Greece. Built in ancient times, this temple to the ancient Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece and provides a stunning backdrop for holiday photos. From the grandeur of the temple itself to the stunning views over the city of Athens, there are endless opportunities to take photographs.

The Warriors of Salamina is another iconic Greek landmark. Located on the island of Salamis, this ancient site dates back to the 7th century BC and is home to the ruins of an ancient city which was destroyed during by the Persians. The ruins are incredibly photogenic and provide a fascinating glimpse into the past.

Acropolis, seen from Mt. Lycabettus, is a breathtaking location for photos. From a height of just over 300m, visitors to the peak can enjoy unparalleled views of the Acropolis, the Parthenon and the surrounding city of Athens. The view from the summit is spectacular and provides a unique opportunity to capture the beauty of the ancient structures from a unique perspective.

Finally, no trip to Greece is complete without photographs of the stunning Aegean Sea. Head to the Mykonos seaside for some stunning shots. The crystal-clear waters, white-washed buildings and winding alleyways of this picturesque island ensure that it remains a photographers’ paradise.
