Greece is an easily accessible country, situated at the southernmost corner of Europe and the Balkan Peninsula. By plane, ship, train or car, your trip here can be easy, safe and pleasant. The country has two large airports at the cities of Athens and Thessaloniki, but also smaller ones that service travellers from every corner of the world with direction to other big cities or famous islands in the Aegean and the Ionian Sea. The railway network, as well as the road network, link Greece with the rest of European countries via the Balkans. Finally, easy is access by sea, since there are two large ports, that of Piraeus and the one in Igoumenitsa, that handle the arrival of coastal ships via mainly Italy.
