Athens, Greece

"Despite the problems Greece is having economically, while I was there I didn't notice! The cultural heritage present there alone is priceless. The food, hospitality, and general atmosphere of the place tells me that Greece will always be okay. The companies we visited seemed to be optimistic as well."
