Greece is definitely one of the number one destinations in the world for summer time, when people from all around the globe hit the Aegean sea to enjoy Greece’s stunning beaches, delicious cuisine and laid-back lifestyle, and celebrities are no exception! Currently we have soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in Messinia, Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson in Antiparos, celebrating Tom’s birthday, and Mykonos is as always the island where you are guaranteed to do some star spotting!
‘Mr Bean’ Rowan Atkinson
Our favourite ‘Mr Bean’ has made Greece his first summer getaway visiting Crete, the country’s largest island and one of the most popular destinations over the warmer months. The acclaimed actor loves the Aegean Sea and Greek culture and in previous visits to the country, he has explored the islands of Ithaca, Kefalonia and also owns a cottage in Andros, where he likes to unwind. Although Atkinson prefers to stay under the radar, Mr Bean’s presence never goes unnoticed when he reaches the Mediterranean.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
What better way to celebrate your birthday, than being in Greece, and that is exactly what Greece’s favourite adopted son, Tom Hanks has done. He was spotted enjoying a romantic birthday getaway with his wife, Rita Wilson in Antiparos, which is where they own a villa and spend a lot of time at. The loved up couple, even after 30 years of marriage, were seen enjoying a swim before returning onboard their luxury yacht.
Soccer superstar Ronaldo is currently enjoying the sun and sea in Greece with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and their kids. This comes after his Portuguese National team recently crashed out of the FIFA World Cup in Russia. According to reports, Ronaldo and his family arrived in his private jet before taking a helicopter to reach the 5-star resort located on Costa Navarino in Messinia, complete with a massive private security team. While Ronaldo is relaxing, tanning on the sand, and being chauffeured around in golf carts according to reports, Juventus are working diligently to try and secure the signing of the international soccer player. The move is estimated to cost Juventus around $450 million to sign Ronaldo until 2022, which experts say could be worth it because Ronaldo is the most bankable athlete in the world.

Once they arrived, Scott and Sofia soaked up the Greek sun, while posing for photos by the pool, before posting them on their social media accounts.
