is on everyone's short list of must-see places: the mysterious
temple of the oracle at Delphi, the beauties of the countryside
near Corinth, the rugged terrain of the Peloponnese, the ancient
waterfront tower of Thessaloniki.
of course the delights of Athens, the ancient-modern capital
where shiny bank buildings rise beside centuries-old tavernas,
and museums boasting priceless examples of timeless art look
out upon parks and gardens built by 19th-century kings.
who goes to Greece must go to sea, as the ancient Greeks
did, spreading their language and culture throughout the region.
A cruise among the Greek islands is a must: the brilliant, cloudless
days, the salt air, the picturesque ports with their gleaming
white sugar cube houses and lively waterfront cafes. On any
island you're liable to settle into a corner of paradise that's
difficult to tear yourself away from.

Greek Isles: the name alone breathes romance. Sailing the legendary
blue Aegean, finding that deserted stretch of pure sand beach,
sundown setting the sky ablaze, starlight, candlelight and bouzouki
music for a memorable dinner in a taverna. The question is:
which islands? Mykonos, known for romance, exhilarating when
you want to be, quiet when you need it. Santorini (Thira), the
rim of an ancient volcano, one of the world's favorite islands
and, to some, the true Atlantis of legend. Crete, the largest
island, civilized for millennia, with snow-capped mountains,
a moderate climate, and more than enough to see and do—or
not do—for any visit. Travel in Style can help you to
decide which islands to visit, where to stay, and how to make
your honeymoon or special anniversary yield memories for a lifetime.
