Probably one of the most well-known places to visit in Greece, Santorini is the diamond of the Aegean. It is best known for the west coast cliff-top towns of Fira and Oia, which appear to hang over a deep, blue sea-filled caldera. Made up of typical Cycladic whitewashed cubic buildings, many of which have been converted into boutique hotels with infinity pools, both Fira and Oia are considered romantic destinations, popular for weddings and honeymoons. From its volcanic beaches and whitewashed houses to its incredible sunsets and scenery, Santorini is most definitely one of the best places to visit in Greece.
Greece's most glamorous island destination is Mykonos. It’s the kind of island that has a good mix of everything; quaint Greek charm, beautiful beaches and sunsets, historic towns and party spots. The island is particularly popular with international celebrities. Mykonos has an airport and is connected by ferry and catamaran to Athens' port, Piraeus, and Rafina.
Home to gorgeous scenery both above and under the sea surrounding it, Zákynthos island is another top tourist destination in Greece. This mix of beautiful scenery; good beaches; and access to an equally stunning underwater world, filled with hidden caves and colorful fish, which is perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving, has made Zákynthos one of the top tourist destinations in Greece.
Crete is easily one of the best places in Greece to visit for an island adventure, but also want to explore a few cities, too. It’s the kind of island that has a little bit of everything, meaning that there’s always something to suit each person you’re travelling with. Crete has a coastline of 1,046 km or 650 miles — which makes for some extraordinary beaches. With crystal clear waters and sand in a variety of colors, Crete’s beaches are unforgettable – in fact, this year of the 486 Blue Flag awarded beaches in Greece, 112 of the eco-labeled beaches are located on Crete!
One of Greece's top tourist destinations, Corfu sits in the Ionian Sea off the west coast of the mainland. The capital, Corfu Town, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, thanks to its elegant Italianate architecture — it was ruled by the Venetians for several centuries. Explore its romantic pedestrian-only streets to discover two 16th-century fortresses and the arcaded Liston, lined by old-fashioned cafes.
