It’s hard to argue that Greece has got to be one of the most photogenic countries in Europe. From its crystal clear waters to beautiful mountain ranges and stunningly scenic towns, it's the place to go if you want to drive your Instagram followers mad with jealousy.

So here it is - read on to find the most gorgeous spots to display on your feed!


The southernmost member of the Cyclades chain, Santorini is the picture-perfect Greek island and a dream destination for social media influencers all over the world. The island capital Fira, with its quintessential white buildings and blue rooftops, is one of the most photographed Greek locations outside of Athens. Take a walk outside the town and you'll be treated to majestic volcanic landscapes and vineyards stretching for miles. If you visit, make sure you take the opportunity for a walking tour around the nearby caldera.


Ios means 'flower' in Greek, and after a few short hours on the island, you'll see why! The beautiful townships are strewn with flowery gardens, windmills and gorgeous tavernas surrounded by olive trees. On top of these idyllic scenes, Ios is also well-known for its watersports, which you can easily find across its 30 beautiful beaches. If you're looking to snap up a few action shots along with the scenery, Ios is the place to go.


With culture, heritage, and some of the best food in Europe, Athens is an absolute must for your itinerary. From the Parthenon to the Temple of Poseidon, it's packed full of recognisable and epic spots for you to take your Insta-shots. With all that snapping, don't forget to spend some time taking in the city, though. Famous districts like Plaka are filled with family-run tavernas and unique shopping finds, and you'll find a range of museums and galleries that will take you back thousands of years, to the beginning of modern civilisation!


Paros should definitely be on your list if you want a drop of history and culture with your beach holiday. As well as its beautiful coastlines and gorgeous little harbours, the island is renowned for the medieval churches and buildings that still stand today. Travel inland, and you'll find townships and villages that still retain their authentic Greek culture, with unique architectural gems that will look great on your feed. #travelgram.


Well-known for being the party capital of the Aegean, this buzzing hotspot is the place to visit for tonnes of exciting shots of you hanging out with your mates. Who cares if you've just met them! The island itself is stunningly beautiful, with some of the best beaches in the region. Spend some time taking in its incredible nightlife and you're bound to make a few new friends who can hold the camera for you.
