Who has not dreamt of standing at the Acropolis, gazing at the Parthenon, with all of Athens bustling below?
Greece 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.
And 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.
Anyone 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.

Hideaway in the Greek Isles
A True Romantic Mediterranean Escapade In 11 days. Athens, Mykonos, Santorini Escapade.
The 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.
Our select island facilities offer privacy, intimacy and outings to villages. Katikies in Santorini (supplement applies). All inclusive Candia Maris Hotel & Resort in Crete.
