Some of the famous attractions visited by tourists in Greece are mentioned below :

Navagio Beach

The island of Zakynthos is a jagged little piece of land off the southwest coast of Greece that features a number of rocky coves cut off from the mainland, and in one of these secluded bits of paradise is Navagio Beach, a sandy little strip that would be remarkable for its beauty, but is made more so by the crumbling remains of a smuggler’s shipwreck.
The crash site soon became a popular destination for vacationers looking not only for an untouched beach but called by the siren song of the decaying ship.

Tourlitis Lighthouse

The lighthouse was first built in 1897 just off shore from a castle in Andros. The stone column on which it was built had been shaped by millennia of natural erosion into the perfect pedestal for a coastal beacon. Unfortunately the original lighthouse was not long for this world, and was destroyed during World War II. The lighthouse was eventually rebuilt in the early 1990s by an oil tycoon who dedicated the structure to his daughter. The replica became Greece’s first automated lighthouse, eliminating the need for an onsite keeper to operate the light.
Since its renovation, it has become one of the area’s foremost tourist attractions, drawing lighthouse peepers and photographers who come to gawk at its singular beauty.

Areopolis

This town named for the ancient God of War is home to fewer than a thousand people, but it’s the birthplace of the Greek Revolution. It was here that Petrobey first declared Greek autonomy from the Ottoman Turks, igniting a decade-long fight for independence after four hundred years of occupation.
A sense of independence still characterizes the town, where there’s a church on the main square, stone streets, a central open air market — and at least one restaurant called “The Black Pirate.”
Areopolis is in the southwest of the Peloponnese Peninsula, in Laconia. You can get there from either Kalamata (about 50 miles to the northwest) or Sparti (about 40 miles to the northeast).

Arcadia Highlands

Majestic mountains, lush gorges, gurgling rivers, quaint villages, interesting museums and historic monasteries compose the fascinating mosaic of the Arcadia highlands. The mountains are wonderful for walking and hiking, there are several immensely pretty, historical villages to explore, you can visit the cliff-hanging centuries-old monasteries in the Lousios Gorge. Two villages that are definitely not to be missed are Stemnitsa and Dimitsana.
