Most Instagrammable Spots in Greece

Been waiting for the vaccine to hit the market so you could hit the road? Well, you’re not alone! We’ve all been cooped up in our homes for way too long, and it’s time to start thinking about travel destinations again now that you’re getting the vaccine. 

If you’ve never been to Greece you’re missing out. The quaint little towns, the beautiful architecture, quiet beaches, and the flora and fauna are things that every travel enthusiast should go and enjoy at least once in their lives. 

If you’re anything like us, you’re going to want to post about your travels on your Instagram. No one likes posing all the time while you’re on vacation but you wouldn’t have to if you have the right face editing app. That said, here’s a list of the most Instagrammable spots in Greece. 

Santorini 

The city of Santorini is a sight to behold. The little white houses perched on top of the hilly city along the eastern coast look almost dream-like, and it’s what made the city one of the most Instagrammed cities in Greece.

Along the west coast, you find beautiful beaches and small islands formed from cooling lava. The city gives off such a relaxed and laid-back vibe that anyone who goes there feels at peace, and the pictures you’ll get there will make you the subject of everyone’s envy. 

Symi

The small island of Symi is perfect for anyone who finds Santorini’s all-white theme a little dull. Symi has a small town on top, full of colourful houses bustling with life and activity. 

Because of its small size, Symi is best explored on foot, but that just gives you more opportunities to take the perfect shots and capture all your meaningful moments for the gram. 

The city has monasteries, colourful harbours lined with yachts, and neoclassical mansions for you to explore and photograph. We’re sure you’ll love this cute little city. 

Corfu 

Corfu has a rich history and an even richer city on its surface. The island is a favourite spot for summer vacations and it is absolutely lovely during spring. 

The town of Corfu itself is a maze of beautiful homes and scenery, but nothing can compare with the beauty of beaches like Paleokastritsa Beach, which is on the northwest side of the island. You wouldn’t believe water could be this blue even when you were looking at it, and it makes for some amazing shots. 

Don’t forget places like the Achillion though. The ancient architecture and the beautiful statues are just the perfect Instagram post waiting to happen. 

Thessaloniki 

This is the second-largest city in Greece, but it still possesses the same amount of calm and laid-back vibe as the smaller cities. 

If you’re in the area, give yourself the chance to enjoy the nightlife in Ladadika and get some shots for the gram in your finest party wear and the amazing traditional architecture in the background. 

The Hamams in Thessaloniki was created by Turkish rulers, and they sure took the time to make these bathhouses beautiful. There are two Hamams in the city, both of which are elaborately painted and decorated. 

Rhodes Old Town 

The city of Rhodes is pretty much world-famous, and the Old Town area is even listed in UNESCO. 

The city is a mix of buildings from different eras like the Hellenistic, Ottoman, Byzantine, and Italian periods which makes it a city worth checking out. 

Even the archaeological museum in the city is built inside a 15th-century hospital, so get that camera out and get busy! Greece is a country full of history, tradition, and numerous beautiful tourist destinations that continue to leave all tourists from all over the world in awe. If you’re thinking about your Instagram accounts, there really isn’t a better place to travel to than Greece.
