Woven into our society for hundreds of years, the Christmas colour theme of red & green has never been questioned, just simply adopted, from the Garden of Eden and the Paradise tree with green symbolizing life, rebirth, nature and relaxation versus red inspiring desire and passion.
Cycladia has converted for you the colours of Christmas into destinations, red for passionate Christmas holidays and green for relaxing mountainscapes.
So pick your Christmas colour and get ready for the most thematic holiday getaway:
Red for Passion - Passionate Christmas Cityscapes
In its holiday gown Athens welcomes you to celebrate Christmas with numerous thematic parks such as the Santa Claus Kingdom and the Christmas factory of Technopolis, dazzling decorations, free concerts in Syntagma square and festive specials in the streets of Ermou, Monastiraki and Kolonaki.
