If you are in search for the perfect holiday destination, look no further for Greece with its clear blue seas and opulent culture will be sure to tickle your fancy.
Crete is the most massive and highly populated of the Greek islands. It therefore comes as no surprise that it is the birthplace of the first civilization of Europe, the Palace of Knossos and the Minoans. On arrival at the splendid Heraklion, you will experience its long enduring customs, tenacious culture, vibrant idioms and cordial residents. With great ease you can easily maneuver your way to the whimsical “lacy” caldera of Santorini for a night out on the town. For the adventurous at heart, you can visit the two islands chiseled by the volcano and do the breast stroke in the green-yellow sweltering springs or even watch the resplendent setting sun.
Meteora is the most grandiose and most pertinent of the complexes of the Eastern Orthodox Monasteries in Greece. It is situated among picturesque scenery and it rests on top of enormous rocks which appear to be dangling in mid-air where the timeless monasteries stand erect hence you can view samples of magnificent Byzantine art. You can then have a pleasant meal in Kalambaka and see the gallant monument of Leonidas at Thermopylae. Mykonos, also known as “the island of the winds”, is a celebrated tourist destination in the Greek islands of the Cyclades group located in Tinos. It is the most sophisticated Cycladic Island hence a fantastic time will be had in the swanky upmarket shops, panoramic alleys, monumental windmills and the Venetian quarter of Alefkandra. The breath- taking sunset ushers in the stimulating night life of the island.
Patmos is a pint-sized Greek island in the Aegean Sea and is prominent for being the site of the apocalyptic revelations of St. John the Divine recorded during his exile from the Roman Empire.
The St. John Monastery constructed on the island’s apical point houses valuable manuscripts and icons in its treasury. A tour where history comes to life in nearby Ephesus is sine qua non because as you saunter down a marble road toward the ancient harbor you pass the piece de resistance, the library of Celsus before alighting at the Great Amphitheatre where St. Paul evangelized.
Rhodes is an island in Greece located in the eastern Aegean Sea and is the broadest and most fertile. It offers a wide array of attractions such as sandy white beaches, sunny weather and archaeological sites. Apart from these positively alluring features, it is also a vast medieval town which appeals to history and culture lovers alike.
