June 2013

Islands bathed in light

The Greek insular territory is nothing less than a vast paradise of sea pearls: over 6.000 islands and islets have justly become the target of the Greek and international visitors who wish to spend a dreamy summer holiday. Ancient civilizations that lived here bequeathed humanity with priceless archaeological treasures; on the other hand, the modern pride and joy of this corner of the world are the countless breathtaking beaches.

This month we are visiting verdant Samos, a place of important monuments (Pythagoreio, Heraion), Lefkada, an island where adrenaline hits the roof with sea sports, the Cyclades, where visitors drool over local specialties, and remote Kastellorizo for peace and relaxation. What is more, a wonderful video is taking us to the stunning beaches of Chania, while the film "Before Midnight" is about to fill the big screens of Greece and the world with images of gorgeous Messinian Mani.
