A bit of a difference this week as I explain the numerous reasons to book a holiday in Greece in 2015. I am serious. I then take you through two or three suggested trips which are not mainstream but offer you Greece with a difference. There is a Northern trip taking in Albania, Meteora, Arta and one entrance to the underworld. And a trip in the South taking in Napfio, Mycenae, Corinth, Delphi, Olympia and the mani. I neglected to say that the main entrance to Hades is at the foot of the Mani. And there is an offbeat island near Athens I recommend - Agistri.  This is the year to see Greece on the cheap and there is so much to enjoy.

For some reason I forgot to mention Monemvasia, the Mont St Michel of Greece - part of your Southern tour. Spemd two nights in the new town and wander across the causeway to check out the delights of the Old Venetian settlement and the fortress at its peak. Cool off with a sea swim.
