Romantic islands and ancient heritage.
Greek mythology has a unique way of captivating our senses, where larger than life achievements and impossible heroes mark their stories. Not surprisingly the most recognizable architecture in Greece is almost mythical. The Parthenon sits perched high above Athens to reveal a glimpse into the ancient past, along with the temple of Apollo, and the archaeological sites in Delphi and Olympia. In neighboring Turkey, the cultural mix of east meets west is prominently felt and still has its share of temples, cities and ancient monuments. Natural wonders like Cappadocia and Pamukkale, and world renowned Mediterranean beaches beckon travelers from all over the world. In between Greece and Turkey are a series of islands worth exploring, from Santorini to Mykonos and the old city of Rhodes, whether by land or by cruise ship or a private yacht.
