DESTINATIONS IN GREECE
Capital of Greece, Athens is the most visited city in the country. With the competition between Athena & Poseidon, Sea God created salt lake on the top of hill and Athena plant an olive tree and that counted more beneficial than lake and city becomes hers… Blessed and protected by Goddess of Wisdom and Tactical War, it is not surprising that democracy born in this land and many philosophers walked in the streets of Athens… Places that should be visited: The Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum, the ancient Agora, the National Archaeological Museum, the Byzantine and Christian Museum, and the Binaki Museum all showcase Greece’s history and brilliant archaeological treasures. The Plaka and the Monasteraki neighborhoods are a shopper’s paradise.
Crete has a different beauty than the other islands and its strange beauty will surround you when you step onto this island. Legend has it that Cronus’s wife Rhea hid their son in the caves of Mount Idea. Crete also is the home of the legendary Minaotaur. Places that should be visited: Knossos Palace Ruins, Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Panagia Kera and the Cave of Zeus, Spinalonga or Chrissi islands.
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands. Its important location on ancient maritime trade routes meant that it always played a main role in the history of the Aegean. Its occupants during the Middle Ages were the Templar Knights who defended it against the Ottomans. The Colossus of Rhodes was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Today, you can walk in the medieval streets of Rhodes or relax in the great Aegean Sea. Places that should visited: Knight Streets, Lindos, the Old City
It is unquestionable that both islands are the most desired destinations in the world. Mykonos is mostly arid but the coastal towns, famous for their windmills, are fascinating escapes. Great hotels, cafes, beaches, and parties all attract energetic people! For the lover of archaeology, nearby Delos—birthplace of Artemis and Apollo—is not to be missed.
