The Greek Islands SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Named after the goddess of wisdom, Athens has a weighty history that spills out over the modern city, represented most dramatically by the ancient Acropolis.
Offering a rare opportunity to see the islands as the Greeks do, Syros has typical whitewashed houses, terraced fields and fabulous sandy beaches.
Legendary in both ancient and modern times, Mykonos was the mythic battlefield where Zeus fought the Gigantes but today it's best known for its decadent nightlife.
Formed by a huge volcanic explosion, Santorini is instantly recognisable with its blue and white buildings, fascinating ruins and spectacular natural beauty.
Home to 365 churches and chapels, one for each day of the year, Ios has an appealing blend of golden beaches and classic Aegean architecture.
The largest and most fertile of the Cycladic Islands, Naxos has picturesque villages, Byzantine churches, lush valleys, ancient citrus groves and wonderful beaches.
The birthplace of Western civilisation, Athens has an amazing array of historic sites to explore, including the National Gardens, the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the original Olympic Stadium.
