Hi, I need to book a child toddler seat for the car I have rented in Thessaloniki. How do I do that?

Greece Mini Guide

Located in Southern Europe, Greece sits upon the southern tip of the Balkan Peninsula. Greece has coastline and islands touched by three separate seas, the Ionian Sea, the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Greece has a very long cultural history, a history which has profoundly influenced philosophy, the arts, science and western society as a whole.

Greece can be logically split into five separate regions. Attica is located on the Aegean Sea and is the region in which Athens, the capital city of Greece stands. The Peloponnese is an area of Greece which has a long historic history, and includes the town of Sparta. The Greek Islands is a cover all name given to the large quantity of islands which make up Greece proper and includes Corfu, Rhodes, Kos, Mykonos and Milos among others. Crete is the largest of the islands to be found around Greece, and is located in the Mediterranean Sea, a popular holiday destination. Central and Northern Greece is the largest region, making up a large area of Europe.

The major cities in Greece include the capital city, Athens. A large metropolitan city with a population of almost 4 million people. Heraklion is the largest city upon the island of Crete. A historical centre, with a documented history going back some 3,000 years, many exhibits from these times are viewable in the Archaeological Museum. The capital of the Peloponnese is Patras, with its superbly preserved Roman architecture. Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and is located in the region of Central Macedonia. A long history including periods under Ottoman, Byzantine and Roman rule. Greece has an abundance of historic sites within its borders, many of which are part of history in their own right. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Delphi is such a place.
