#Crete one of the 6 best European Islands

#Crete one of the 6 best European Islands | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Of all the Greek Islands, Crete is both the largest and most varied. Historical sights are topped by the ruins of the Knossos Palace, the pinnacle of the Minoan civilisation. It's just to the south of Crete's capital, Iraklio (also called Heraklion). There are also some tremendous beaches – particularly Elafonisi in the south-western corner – while Samaria Gorge offers one of the continent's great canyon hikes. The island's also large enough to have substantial mountains, dotted with picturesque monasteries such as the culturally symbolic Moni Arkadiou.

Decorating with a Mediterranean Influence | Decoist

Decorating with a Mediterranean Influence | Decoist | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
If you’re like most people, when you hear the word “Mediterranean” you instantly begin salivating for deliciously flavorful cuisine and full-bodied red wines. You may think of white washed buildings atop steep cliffs and the blue lapping waves of Santorini. Maybe you think of the patchwork fields full of Tuscan wineries, the space age architecture of Valencia or the twinkling city lights of Monaco. You may even conjure up the images of the picturesque white sandy beaches and teal waters of the Turkish coast or the bold tapestries hung in a Moroccan marketplace. Whatever it is, the Mediterranean culture has had a profound impact on the world in the form of food, music and, of course, home décor.

Which Greek island should you go to?

Which Greek island should you go to? | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
With 1,400 beautiful islands, Greece offers travelers a tough decision way beyond raki vs wine. Allow us to help out.
Demetrios Georgalas's insight:

Greece's 1,400 islands -- 230 of them inhabited -- are one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful assets.

From the Ionian, up by Albania in the northwest, to the Dodecanese, near Turkey in the southeast, they offer vacations you can't get many other places.

Each of the island groups has its unique allure, plus some of the most picturesque seascapes on Earth.

But for sheer variety in a small radius, proximity to Athens' ferry port at Piraeus and the best inter-island boat connections, none compete with the Cyclades.

Top 100 festive wines – part two: well-bred reds - FT.com | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
All these wines, culled from the 10,000 or so I taste each year, are thoroughly distinctive and superior, generally scoring 17/20, a very high mark on my scale. Unlike so much of the fine wine on sale, they are all ready to drink.
Demetrios Georgalas's insight:


Mirambelo 2010 Peza

Kotsifali and Mandilaria grapes grown on Crete give a hugely distinctive wine with the scents of dried laurel leaves and no excess sweetness. Bone-dry fine wine. Not that intense but complex, distinctive and interesting. 13%
