The seat of the gods, not only a must for connoisseurs of Greek mythology.
You can experience this adventure from Athens by helicopter. Or you can get active and enjoy the sight and the mysticism for several days.
There are actually beautiful, rarely visited islands, without an airport, only accessible by boat. Almost only visited by Greeks - here you can immerse yourself in the real Greece.
Of course we love the scenic view from the caldera to the sea. The incredible sunrises and sunsets.
Strolling through the pretty towns of Fira and Oia. However, we also love unusual experiences in places that are rarely visited. Voila.
A dream of a cliché, staged in a cool and stylish way. You will be enthusiastic.

Away from it all. Quaint, rocky, beautifully lonely. We will find out which island combination is the most wonderful for you.
Greece is located at the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula in southern Europe, halfway between Italy and Turkey.
A channel in the Gulf of Corinth separates the mainland from the Pellopones Peninsula. Greece has many mountain ranges that stretch to the island of Crete in the far south. All the islands in the Aegean are actually remnants of similar mountain ranges, now submerged in the sea.
Greece is best known for these islands, there are said to be 3,054 in total, but only 87 of them are permanently inhabited.
The climate and weather in Greece is typically Mediterranean with cool and relatively wet winters and warm to hot and dry summers, with lots of sunshine. The temperatures depend largely on the height above sea level, but the west of the country including Corfu is a little more humid, so this island is also a little greener.
Greece's coasts form picturesque bays with a mixture of beautiful sandy beaches and rocky headlands. Much of the country's coastline is around the Aegean Sea, such as the islands of Mykonos, Santorini, Rhodes, Crete, Paros and Kos.
The best travel time starts in spring (March / April) and is ideal for city trips, visiting ancient sites and hiking, before it becomes too hot in midsummer
June to September, on the other hand, is the best time for a beach holiday in Greece.

Greece is a country of connoisseurs, and this of course also applies to the food. Hearty fish and meat dishes, seafood, fruit, the world-famous feta cheese, olives and sweet treats represent the Greek cuisine.
Gyros, Bifteki, Moussak or Souvlaki. Dolmades, Tzaziki or Tamaras. Greek yoghurt with honey or puff pastries - all of these whet your appetite for the sea. Olives, almonds, grapes and figs can be found in Greek cuisine.
Greek wine or water is consumed with meals in Greece. Ouzo, an aniseed schnapps, is the most famous spirit in the country (similar to the Turkish raki).
Not to forget the little coffee in between.
The population of Greece is about 11 million, the population is largely Greek Orthodox.
The Greek, like many southerners, is a very sociable, open-minded, hospitable and open person, even if he sometimes seems a bit grumpy at first glance.
Greeks love political discussions, their coffee and time with the family and enjoy a long, late dinner in a large group. Atmospheric traditional music and sirtaki are part of all festivals.

Greece has a number of airports, the largest and most important being in Athens. Other international airports are located in Thessaloniki, as well as on the islands of Mykonos, Kos, Corfu, Rhodes and Crete.
