A tour of the cradle of Western civilization is like being invited to a live history class. Bathed by the waters of the Aegean and Ionian Seas, this south-eastern European country is home to thousands of beautiful islands.
There are so many islands in Greece that reliable information on the exact number has never been found. It’s estimated that there are about 6,000, of which 200 are inhabited. If you plan to spend your holidays in Greece, you can choose the one that best adapts to your needs. The most popular islands include: Crete, the largest island; Mykonos, thanks to its lively nightlife; Santorini for its volcanic scenery; or the Ionian Islands for their spectacular natural environment and for Corfu, a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. The capital city of Athens combines a modern urban vibe with ancient buildings such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon. And you should also visit Delphi, the city that was considered the centre of the world in ancient Greece. Olympia was the birthplace of the Olympic Games.
