All roads may lead to Rome but without Greece there would have been no Rome. Greece is the cradle of Western Civilization and the Greeks gave us cultural gifts we’re still enjoying to this day. Everything from democracy to the Hippocratic Oath to the Olympic Games originated in Greece thousands of years ago. Suffice to say that if you secure a car rental in Greece and hit the road you’re going to see things that are unique and astonishing, historically irreplaceable and aesthetically beautiful. Greece may have been hit hard in the wake of the financial crisis but the spirit of the Greek people is undiminished and their welcoming nature a light others would do well to follow.
