Greece is steeped in ancient mythology, and shares impressive ruins as tributes to its glory days of long ago. Athens is the city that cradled western civilization 3,000 years ago, and the Acropolis and Parthenon await your visit. Sprinkled across the Aegean Sea, numerous islands await your discovery. The Cyclades are the essence of the Greek Isles. Fishing boats cast colorful reflections in azure waters, whitewashed villages cascade down lavender-dusted slopes, and craggy headlands are punctuated by ancient ruins. Santorini is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Mykonos, Rhodes and many other idyllic postcard-like islands invite you to visit, and dare you to want to leave.
