Athens

Founded in prehistoric times, the Greek capital city Athens has now become a thriving metropolis. Despite the urban setting, the city is full of visible history. The remarkable Acropolis, ancient Agora, and Hadrianís Gate all stand as reminders of Athensí long past. But for those who prefer the present, Athens offers shopping in the Plaka, dining in countless fine restaurants and late-night partying at the discos.

 

Mykonos

The sunny island of Mykonos is a vacationerís dream come true. Known as the most cosmopolitan of the Greek Isles, it offers deep blue waters, sandy beaches and a thriving nightlife. On the other hand, the charm of whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and traditional windmills makes this an island paradise.

 

Santorini

Home to the fabled legend of Atlantis, Santorini is one of the most alluring and romantic of all the Greek Isles. Santoriniís breathtaking caldera and dark sandy beaches are the legacy of its ancient volcanic birth. In addition to the islandís enchanting natural splendor, it also has quaint villages, remarkable archeological sites, and a magical atmosphere unique to the island.
