The cradle of civilization might've hit the economic skids recently, but there's no doubting its cultural treasures are still very much in the black. A Greece vacation will take you back to a time when the Gods had an impish sense of humor, sea monsters ruled the waves, and a trip to the underworld meant more than a crazy night's clubbing. Athens has its detractors, but the Classical columns of the Parthenon speak for themselves. Make like Hercules and journey out into the Aegean to enjoy the beaches, ruins, and ouzo of islands including Mykonos, Rhodes, Kos, and Crete.
