Greek Landscapes is an independent travel guide to Greece. The title refers to the natural and cultural landscapes of Greece, and as such it represents the physical beauty as well as the rich history and culture that makes the country a unique place to visit.
It is made by independent travelers for independent travelers; to bring the magic to those who cannot be there, and to help those who plan to travel to Greece. This site is made by real travelers and not by travel agents.
The site began in 1998 with few pages lingering in free servers, but the name greeklandscapes.com was finally established in 2002. Thanks to our loyal visitors who appreciate impartial travel advice, the site has grown to one of the most popular and trusted travel guides to Greece. GreekLandscapes.com receives over 1.5 million unique visitors annually.
We are a small company with a passion for traveling to Greece and helping other travelers plan their dream vacation. The main author, photographer, and designer of Greek Landscapes.com is Thomas Sakoulas who grew up in Greece and has traveled extensively around the world (50 countries and counting.) He lives and works as an Art Professor in the state of New York in the USA where he teaches web design and art. The co-author and editor, Maria, is a traveler and a Spanish teacher. The articles in these pages are the direct result of their travels in Greece.
