Greek Islands. On this website you will find a brief history and

end your tour on the colorful Greek islands. The islands have something
to offer for everyone. Visit the excavated ancient ruins of Akrotiri on
Santorini, once buried by a massive volcanic eruption. Enjoy the
beautiful colors of the Santorini landscape. Visit the Minoan
civilization on Crete or relax on the beaches or at the many outdoor
restaurants and patios.
Begin your journey in Athens, the cradle of democracy and her
spectacular ancient ruins and museums. Travel south to the first
mainland Greek civilization in the Peloponnese and visit the citadels
of Mycenae and impressive Tiryns. Journey on to Olympia where the
Olympics all began. Continue on to central Greece and visit the oracle
at Delphi and the cliff top monasteries in Meteora.
Last but equally spectacular is northern Greece. Particularly the
Macedonian lands of Philip and Alexander the Great. Many travelers omit
this part of Greece from their trip. Take a look and read why it should
be visited. A brief history and discussion on Macedonian, Roman and
Byzantine archaeological sites has now been added to this section.
Greece, I suggest that you make two trips here because there is so much
history to see, beaches to relax on and culture to enjoy. On your first
trip visit Athens and the Greek islands. Your second trip should be to
the Greek mainland.
