Summer romance in the Cyclades

Summer romance in the Cyclades

Of the Aegean

Sea surf kiss on its caressed sand—Eros
The gull gives the horizon
Its blue liberty
Waves go home
Foaming answering in the ears of shells

Who took the blond sunburnt girl?
The sea breeze with its transparent blowing
Tilts the sail of dream
Far out
Eros murmurs its promise—Sea surf.

Odysseas Elytis (extract from the collection of poems “Orientations”)

Love, Made in Greece

Love, Made in GreeceA plethora of films have been made in Greece. We couldn’t possibly list them all here. However, we have selected a few that enjoyed international acclaim and were filmed on location in various regions and islands of Greece including Hydra, Cephalonia, Skiathos, Skopelos and Pelion. These films have become “classics” and epitomize the Greek spirit via romance, passion, defiance, tragedy, forbidden love, guilty pleasures, and all else in between.

DelosSpecial feature: Explore the magnificent ruins in the ancient sanctuary of Delos, birthplace of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis.

This month our professional tourist guides take us on a journey to “the tiny archaeological gem of Delos”, according to National Geographic. They will introduce us to Artemis, goddess of animals and the hunt, and Apollo, god of healing and light.
