If you are planning a vacation to Greece, but you don’t know where to start, maybe the experience of others will help you. TripAdvisor asked travelers about their favorite destinations. With that information, a list of the best places to visit in Greece in 2023 was born. Here’s how it works!
Where are the best places to visit in Greece?
Every year, Tripadvisor awards travelers’ favorite destinations, hotels, restaurants, and things to do around the world, based on reviews and ratings collected over 12 months. That way, the Travelers’ Choice 2023 winners are decided by real travelers, families, couples, and solo travelers, from all over, sharing real opinions and stories.
Travelers’ Choice 2023
TripAdvisor is one of the world’s largest travel platforms, with millions of ratings and reviews. These are created by a global community of hundreds of millions of travelers.
The 2023 winners are the places that these people visited and loved in the past 12 months. They reflect the very best places chosen by a devoted community. In that way, TripAdvisor is a good reference guide for travelers dreaming about where to go next. The awards are divided into several categories; the best beaches, the best food, the best hotels, etc.
Greek Destinations among Best of the Best Places to visit in 2023
For Greece, travelers decide on the Greek destinations: of Athens, Crete, Rhodes, Santorini, and Zante (Zakynthos) for the Travelers’ Choice 2023 Best of the Best Destinations Awards list.
With regard to Greece as a destination, according to Tripadvisor, Crete is the World’s 7th Most Popular Destination for 2023 and ranks 4th on the European list. The Greek island was also voted as the World’s 2nd Best Food Destination, winning the same spot on the European list. On the first spot is Rome, Italy. (But hey, who can beat Italian food?!)
Moreover, Athens is named as the World’s 3rd Best Place for Culture in 2023. This category reviews history, art, music, cuisine plus iconic sights and experiences you can’t find anywhere else. Athens is therefore no surprise, being one of the most ancient cities in the world. Hello Acropolis! Zante (Zakynthos) has the 17th best place in the World’s Best Nature Destination list.
In addition, Rhodes is in the 12th position on the list of Europe’s Most Popular Destinations for 2023. Santorini is 15th on the same list.
For families, Rhodes offers a lot of things to do and many waterparks. Santorini does not need any introduction. It is one of the most famous destinations in the world because of its picturesque scenery, an active volcano, white cube houses, and labyrinth villages.
