Greek Islands
Beautiful beaches offering island silhouettes on the horizon; transparent blue seas and friendly beach bars plus atmospheric villages and monasteries, archaeological treasures, world-class museums and a laid-back lifestyle pursued mostly in public, the Greek Islands have it all! The islands have unique archeological sites, a distinctive architectural heritage and the captivating local traditions of a centuries-old and complex civilization. And despite tourist development, the Greek islands have not lost their original character!
Mainland Greece
Because of its geographical position, Greece was a crossroad of civilizations that had left their traces everywhere: the architecture of the museums and settlements, daily life, food customs, art, and the amazing scenery in the various cities the mainland has to offer. Discover the interesting cities of the mainland such as Athens, a modern city that thrives in the shadow of the Acropolis. And not to forget the ruins of Delphi, Olympia and Meteora, all reminders of the great civilization that once existed in Greece.
More to Explore

Europe is home to hundreds of breathtaking islands scattered within and around the continent that range from long established celebrity hotspots to lesser-known hidden gems. While your first thought is probably resorts and beaches, don’t forget the many islands that boast rugged cliffs, hiking, adventure sports, and even skiing. With such diversity, history, and culture, you'll always find somewhere intriguing to explore in the Idyllic Islands of Europe.

The coastlines of southern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa are shaped by the Mediterranean Sea. Not only does the Mediterranean have beautiful resorts and beaches on the mainland, there are literally thousands of islands to explore, each with their own beauty, over 2,500 miles from Spain east to Turkey. The cultural and culinary experiences of each Mediterranean country are unique and delightful.

Southern Europe is made up of all the countries close to the Mediterranean. Spain, Italy, Malta, Greece, Croatia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina and Montenegro are some of the most visited destinations in the region. It`s known for its incredible sailing, natural wonders, and ancient history.

Europe has no shortage of incredible seaside destinations to visit, full of historic sights, incredible food, lovely people, and exciting cultures. Boasting miles upon miles of beautiful coastlines, the European Seaside Resorts offer special experiences you’ll find only along the coastline. Whether you like the party scene of Ibiza, or the laid back feel of Split, these seaside resorts of Europe have something for everyone.
Experiences and Adventures
Greek Cuisine
Food is a huge part of Greek culture. The cuisine offers an incredibly rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are the culmination of thousands of years of living, cooking, and eating. It’s all about the fresh ingredients, the lengthy procedure involved in preparing the food, and the culture of sharing dishes with others.
Greek Wine Regions
In ancient times, Greece was one of the most important wine making regions. Wine is closely related to Greek culture and religion with a much more diverse climate and terrain than most people realize. The country is a bit of a mystery to many wine drinkers, who may be limited by their knowledge of the region, grape varieties, or simply the pronunciation. However, one visit to Greece, sipping dry white wine of Santorini Island, sampling rosé on a Peloponnese road trip, indulging in sparkling wines in the mountainous north, or discovering the reds of Crete: there is something for every taste.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Greece
Western civilization was born in Greece over 4,000 years ago. It therefore comes as no surprise that this ancient land is home to 18 amazingly unique UNESCO Sites to visit. From Bronze Age citadels and the sacred Acropolis of Athens (on which stands the Parthenon, chosen by UNESCO as its official emblem), to Byzantine monasteries and Venetian fortresses, Greece’s ongoing efforts to protect and curate its sites and monuments is testament to the tireless work of archaeologists, conservators and heritage managers across the country.
City and Beach Holidays in Greece
Greece is a country where historic ruins, volcanic cliffs, and friendly locals meet the blue Mediterranean Sea. It`s the whole package spread out amongst thousands of gorgeous islands. Discover the historical heritage on a major European capital in Athens before taking in the whitewashed villages of the islands where you`ll find ample opportunities to enjoy swimming, eating and gazing at the deep-blue Aegean.

WHY THE SARONIC ISLANDS?

The Saronic islands, which include Hydra and Aegina, are the islands closest to Athens in Greece. This group of islands is a small, relatively sheltered gulf between Attica and the Peloponnese. You could describe them as “the islands off Athens”. There are a total of about 20 islands and islets in the Saronic Gulf, of which only 6 are inhabited. These islands are best known for their rich history, wealthy captains, neoclassical architecture and cosmopolitan character.
