Greece is the ultimate place to have fun at. Beautiful Greek islands, breathtaking scenery, mouthwatering cuisine, museums, theatres…is there anything that Greece does not offer? However, with the limited amount of time you have to make the most of your trip to Greece, you can only do that much in this much time.
Visit the Greek Islands
Ai Yianni, Mykonos:
The island of Mykonos is not only famous for its windmills. It is also famous for the night life. Looking for a fun place in Greece that has an amazing nightlife? Ai Yianni, on the North side of the island, is where you should be heading towards. From amazing restaurants to lazy sandy beaches and serene windmills this place is perfect to have fun and get a natural suntan.
If you love archaeology, Crete is one of the Greek islands you will love. Heraklion is the fourth largest city in Greece. It is also the administrative capital of the island. From the main landmark of the 16th century Turkish Fortress of Koulos, the Morozini Fountain, the Archaeology Museum. Heraklion has plenty to offer to history and archaeology enthusiasts.
If you love literature, you will be thrilled to find a signature that has been carved on one of the columns of the temple by none other than the super famous Lord Byron! The towers of the temple are perched 60m high above the sea level, on the Attiki peninsula. However most of its columns are no longer there, still it is one place you need to go to because of Poseidon!
For bonus points, book a luxury yacht and go exploring the waters surrounding this area. Contact Deep Blue Yachting to find out about availability of their luxury yacht Glaros.
Another one of the Greek islands you must visit is Hydra. Feel free to explore the place without worrying of any road accidents since Hydra has a no-vehicle traffic rule! The island has beautiful beaches, monasteries like Ayia Efpraxia and beautiful churches. Rent out a bike and see why the place is also used as a shooting location by so many film-makers.
Deep Blue Yachting and the luxury yacht Glaros are based on the Ionian Island of Lefkada. Some of the Greek islands that I have written about in this post are quite far from Lefkada. Therefore they would take too long to visit if you only had one weeks holiday. However I write about all things Greek in my bog posts. So these posts are for the people who love all things Greek. I will be happy to answer any questions, or comments that you may have. So please feel free to leave them.
