[an error occurred while processing this directive]Greece's World Heritage Sites

[an error occurred while processing this directive][an error occurred while processing this directive] Greece ratified the World Heritage Convention on 17 July, 1981. As of August 2010, there are 17 sites in Greece inscribed on the World Heritage List. Greece has also submitted a further eight sites presently on the Tentative List. In addition to that, I have documented two fantastic islands in Greece, with more on the way.

If you are planning a holiday in Greece, read also My Greece Travel & Hotel Guide for useful travel information.
