A GREEK ISLANDS HOLIDAY: whitewashed, cliff-hugging villages, enchanting seascapes, black sand beaches, ancient ruins and, of course, Mediterranean cuisine—all add up to the trip of a lifetime. This Greek Odyssey begins and ends in Athens: monuments, eclectic markets and lively streets. Visit Mykonos—the most impressive port town in the Cyclades —to soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere, and Santorini—one of the ten best islands in Europe with scenery and charm off the charts—to watch one of the world's truly beautiful sunsets. Next is Crete, flush with fantastic beaches and turquoise lagoons! Some say visiting Greece is a life-altering experience. Let's find out!
