Greece, where the alluring combination of history and hedonism continues to beckon. Within easy reach of magnificent archaeological sites, breathtaking beaches and relaxed taverns serving everything from ouzo to octopus. Wanders can island-hop to their heart’s content, while party types can enjoy pulsating nightlife in Greece’s vibrant modern cities and on islands such as Mykonos, Ios and Santorini. Enjoy welcoming locals with an enticing culture and a vow to come back.

Ios has long held a reputation as the ‘Party Island’. There are wall-to-wall bars and night clubs in the villiage Hora, that thump all night, and fantastic fun facilities at Milopotas Beach that entertain all day long.

Stunning Santorini (Thira) is unique and should not be missed. The startling sight of the submerged caldera almost encircled by sheer lava-layered cliffs, topped off by clifftop towns that look like a dusting of icing sugar, will grab your attention and not let it go.

Sophisticated Mykonos glitters happily under the Agean sun, shamelessly surviving on tourism. The island has something for everyone with marvellous beaches, romantic sunsets, chic boutiues, excellent restaurants and bars.
