Santorini Each Greek island has its own distinct identity, and none more so than Santorini. Created by a volcano, this beautiful island is one of very few places that has beaches with multi-coloured sand. On Santorini you can relax on black, red and white sand, all results of a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. This island also produces delicious local wines. Corfu Corfu is an imposing island, rich in history and dotted with ancient castles. Corfu's Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and dates back to the 8th century BC. Corfu is a major tourist spot, so there is lots for families to do, but lovers of history, archaeology and natural history will also find much to fascinate them here. Mykonos Mykonos is simply stunning. We predict that your first sight of the island's bright white buildings, contrasting with the bright blue of the Greek sky, will be enough to make you fall in love with this island. A haven for artistic types, Mykonos has many small studios and ateliers selling handmade ceramics, paintings and jewellery. There are also lots of lovely seafront cafes and restaurants. Kefalonia (Argostoli) Kefalonia is famed for its wildlife and beautiful beaches. Why not stop here and spot loggerhead turtles? Argostoli, the island's capital, combines the best of ancient and modern, and its spacious streets and squares are great to browse and relax in. If you love history, Argostoli has plenty of museums and, for the more daring traveller, there are underground caves, lakes and caverns to explore! Rhodes Rhodes is an island of contrasts. Its magnificent walled medieval city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and unlike anything you will see elsewhere. Ancient streets and buildings left unchanged for centuries now house a huge range of shops, restaurants and quaint cafes - we highly recommend a visit. Elsewhere on the island are the holiday destination of Faliraki, and the beautiful resort of Lindos. Athens In Athens, you can marvel at how the ancient and modern combine. We suggest wandering through the Plaka, the oldest area of the city, perhaps enjoying some traditional food and drink along the way. There are, of course, many historical sights in Athens, but simply relaxing in one of the city's many public squares is a fascinating way to pass the time.
