Promoting Beautiful Greece: World Tourism Day 2023 Greek Photo Competition #WTD2023 🇬🇷 💙 🇬🇷

We took this photo of  the Parthenon on Athens' sacred rock, the Acropolis from one of Athens' gorgeous rooftops, just as raindrops were falling on our heads, today #WorldTouristDay2023 and thought it was the perfect photo for our album cover this year. 
September 27 is known as World Tourism Day
and as always is a great opportunity 
to promote our beautiful Greece -   
THE Tourist Destination -
The ULTIMATE Tourist Destination!

Here at Global Greek World it is the day we launch our Greek Photo Competition every year on our Global Greek World Facebook Page to showcase this magnificent country of ours.

2023 set all sorts of records. 

 it was a wonderful year for tourism in Greece and we are thrilled that so many people chose Greece for their holidays/extended vacations! 
It is almost October and Athens is still full of visitors as are so many other parts of our lovely country.

We are also thrilled that so many of our friends managed to get here again this year for the first time after a long time. 
 We look forward to it being a record year for entries!

Thank you all! 
#StaySafe ️
