Do you want to visit Greece? Maybe you need some inspiration to get you there? Well here are twelve titles to choose from that can easily inspire you to turn your dreams into reality.

1. The Kings of Mykonos (2010)

So you dream of becoming the king of Mykonos?

2. Before Trilogy (1995-2013)

Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004), and Before Midnight (2013) make up a very romantic trilogy of films. Before Midnight was filmed in Greece. I saw Before Midnight first and then had to see the other two movies when I discovered it was part of a trilogy. I’m glad to have seen all three Before movies and so will you.
