    View of Athens, Greece

    Athens, the capital and largest city of Greece, is also one of the world's oldest cities with an unparalleled history that spans around 3,400 years. Experiencing long periods of sunshine throughout the year, and known as "the cradle of Western civilisation", it is a 'must-see' destination for world travellers. The city contains a fascinating variety of different architectural styles, ranging from Greco-Roman through Neo-Classical, to Modern. They are usually all found together in the same areas, as a walk through the old neighbourhoods of the famous historic triangle will reveal. Read more about Athens, Greece

    The Greek Island of Patmos is possibly best known as the place where the apostle John received his vision and wrote the Apocalypse, and is subsequently sometimes called the Jerusalem of the Aegean. Whether you are interested in history and religion or not, the Monastery of St. John is regarded as a 'must see'. Looking like a huge fortress, it towers above the unique medieval village of Chora.

    Symi is the main town of a Greek island of the same name. Lying NW of the island of Rhodes, it has areas of significance in history and mythology. The town of Symi is divided in two parts: the harbourside one called Gialós, and the adjacent one on the slopes of the hills, called Chorió. Gialós is of two- and three-storey traditional stone houses, painted in all colours but mostly in indigo, ochre and terracotta, with red tiled roofs and cute little balconies with railings in the style peculiar to Symi.

    Amorgos - aka Yperia, Patagy - is the easternmost island of the Greek Cyclades island group, lying closest to the neighbouring Dodecanese island group. Around 3200 to 2000 BC it was the site of an ancient and powerful civilization with major population centres built around natural ports on the island's west coast. Today these are the locations of Tholaria, Stroumvos, Katapola and Castri. Amorgos, regarded as the pearl of the Aegean is simple, nostalgic, rich in history and traditions.

    5 Saturday, July 9, 2022 Santorini, Greece 12:00 AM 12:00 AM
    View of Santorini, Greece

    Santorini is a small, circular archipelago of volcanic islands located in the Aegean Sea, about 200 km from Greece's mainland. It is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion some 3500 years ago, which destroyed the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island, and which resulted in the creation of the current geological caldera. Take the cable car to view the beautiful panorama of Santorini. The most exotic spot on Santorini is Red Beach. Read more about Santorini, Greece

    Folegandros is a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea that, together with Sikinos, Ios, Anafi and Santorini, forms the southern part of the Cyclades. Shining under the Aegean sun, Folegandros was named after the son of king Minos. This off-the-beaten-path destination captivates visitors with the untouched beauty of its beaches, the luminous blue of its waters, and the unadulterated style of its architecture. The “capital” of the island, Chora is one of the oldest traditional medieval towns in the Cyclades. Read more about Folegandros, Cyclades, Greece
