Summer? Greece, of course. Where else?

Summer? Greece, of course. Where else?

This month our team has drawn up some summer itineraries just for you. Our copywriters have personally visited the places we present in this month’s newsletter and have walked along the coastal paths that you’ll read about. They have explored the beaches and taken a caicque to visit small islands scattered around the Mediterranean Sea.

So, we think it's about time for you to get your first taste of the legendary Greek summer. The summer we here in Greece know and love. The summer we and our colleagues invite you to experience for yourselves.

P.S. Don't forget to watch the video and listen to our visitors talking about their summer experiences in Greece!

But awake or not, your dream has come true: it is summer and you are in Crete. Yes!

Lush green forests that reach right down to the beach; golden sunlight reflected in the turquoise waters; a rich gastronomic and cultural heritage. Endless coves, perfectly preserved Christian monuments and a host of unexplored treasures all add their own rich touch to the unique canvas that is Halkidiki.

When we were producing our May issue, we asked some tourist guides to share their personal travel experiences with you. They tell their own story about the island that Odysseus craved to return to. A destination we all long to discover, although we know all along that the journey is what really matters. Ithaca.
