the greek islands

Island Groups
Cyclades Islands
The Cyclades Islands (meaning `circular islands`) are the most famous island group in the Aegean Sea that comprise some of the most stunning islands in the world!
Ionian Islands
The Ionian Islands is a cluster of six isles that are linked in a chain down the west coast of Greece. It is not only stunningly scenic but also has a character of its own that is set apart from other Greek islands.
Dodecanese Islands
Only a short distance from Turkey`s Turquoise Coast in the southeastern Aegean, the Dodecanese chain of islands lies in what is called the sunniest corner of Greece. With twelve larger islands and numerous smaller uninhabited islands and islets, the Dodecanese Islands have the right mix of tourism and tradition, a fascinating history, two UNESCO World Heritage sites and stunning landscapes.
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.
More to Explore

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.

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.

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.

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.
Experiences & 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. Overall, the food always incorporates much more than just flavors and dishes. 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 Region
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.
Cities in Greece
WHY THE 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!

Spreading in two main seas, the Aegean and the Ionian, the Greek islands are divided into smaller groups. The most popular island group is the Cyclades islands: Santorini, Mykonos and Paros with the typical Cycladic architecture. The islands of Dodecanese and Ionian offer their own charm as well: Rhodes, Kos, Corfu and Kefalonia and then to the south is Crete, the largest of them all.
