Greece Press Trip 2019-2020

Halkidiki, Greece aqua blue crystal sea

Nowhere in Greece offers exotic story lines like Halkidiki and Northern Greece. The region is the perfect combination of distinctive Greek culture, pristine landscapes, dazzling colors and enigmatic fragrances.

Several of our members experienced for themselves the glorious natural setting, the famous culinary fare of the region, and the living traditions of its people. Each writer was on a path of discovery unique to the itinerary they developed with the host.

Halkidiki and Northern Greece is a place where senses come to life and boundless stories can be told. Think chic, cosmopolitan beaches, secluded bays and out-of-the way coves. Just the tantalizing scent of the pine trees and the salt brine of the sea brings relaxation to the body and spirit, leading to stories readers will never forget.

IFWTWA is grateful to all our gracious hosts for this special opportunity. Lodging and tours organized by Sofia Bournatzi of PASS PARTOUT - Tourism Marketing

Introducing Thessaloniki, Greece’s best kept secret
Move over Athens–there’s a new, 315 BC-year-old kid on the block! It’s Thessaloniki, the capital of Greek Macedonia and the second-largest city in Greece. It’s always been popular with European travelers who are drawn to its gorgeous beaches, lively college-town energy, and cosmopolitan character. Although the majority of the city center was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1917, the rebuilt 20th-century city has a well-planned, Europeanized design.

Fit for the Gods: Halkidiki's Eagles Palace Hotel and Resort
The five-star Eagles Palace Hotel & Resort, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, enjoys a spectacularly unique location near Mount Athos, "The Holy Mountain" and the picturesque fishing village of Ouranoupolis in Halkidiki. Mount Athos was mentioned by Homer as being the first home of Zeus and Apollo before they moved to Mt. Olympus but I be they would have stayed if Eagles had been opened then!
