Deciding to choose in which region from Greece to spend your holiday could become a real struggle. We are talking about the territory of various gods and legends and a land surrounded by the Mediterranean, Aegean, Ionian and Cretan Sea.
Since the third and second millennium, on these lands developed two of the most brilliant civilizations: the Minoans in Crete and the Greeks in Elad.
The entire Greece is invaded by great ruins of ancient temples and incomparable Byzantine monuments.
Last but not least, the splendor of the islands provides tourists with the most breath-taking views.
Greece has about 3000 islands and islets and each one is unique in its own way. To say that one is more beautiful than the other is a literal sacrilege.
Two of its most beautiful islands are Naxos and Santorini. The first is the largest and its ‘flooded’ by green orchards of lemon and olive trees.
Meanwhile, its neighbor Santorini the most romantic island in the world. Surrounded by mountain peaks and the beautiful sea, it’s like being in a movie.
Located on the southern part of the Aegean Sea, Cyclades is ‘hosting’ over 200 small islands, but only 24 of them are inhabited. The total population does not exceed 100,000 inhabitants.
The name Cyclades comes from the Greek ‘Kyklades’ – and means ‘circle’ or ‘wheel’ – and refer to the round shape of the archipelago that surrounds the sacred island of Delos – the spiritual center of the ancient Greek world, the birthplace of the mythical goddess Artemis (Diana) and Apollo.
