Vacationing in Greece
The Greek Islands, comprised of 6000 islands and islets mostly found in the Aegean Sea, are legendary for their alluring beauty and diversified landscapes. Less than 250 islands are inhabitable, but all are bathed in clear light, fueled by a history and culture unique to the European continent.
White-washed houses and dome-roofed churches punctuate the countryside alongside historic archaeological sites, and views of islands like Delos, Hydra and Patmos abound in the distance. Snorkel or windsurf the turquoise waters of Mykonos, or soak up the ideal climate on one of many golden beaches.
If it's a beach side restaurant serving local grilled fish or a lively nightlife scene you're looking for, you won't be disappointed. Head to Santorini and you'll spot donkeys, one-of-a-kind beaches, volcanoes, and a truly romantic spot. Direct flights to Santorini from London, or a commuter flight from Athens to Mykonos, make the magic of the Greek easy to experience, as do ferries, which can be accessed about an hour from Athens international airport.
