22 Postcard-Perfect European Villages Straight Out of a Fairytale

Folegandros, Greece
Santorini’s streets sag with admirers, but on Folegandros, a nearby island in the Cyclades, you’ll find similar architecture—streets paved in slate, whitewashed buildings decorated with colorful flowers, the occasional Greek Orthodox church with a bright blue dome—without the crowds. For a secluded swim, trek to Katergo, a sheltered stretch of beach where gentle, emerald-blue waves lap the pebbly shore.

A Grecian glow Santorini is one of 220 Greek islands that were created by the Minoan eruption, a volcanic explosion that divided up a single island into today’s beloved archipelago. Made picturesque by whitewashed buildings and an arid landscape, Santorini is a hedonist’s dream, with a slew of beaches, bars and infinity pools from which to enjoy the setting sun.

What Riding A Donkey in Santorini Can Teach You About Life

What Riding A Donkey in Santorini Can Teach You About Life | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
I recently rode a donkey in Santorini. Judge away. This may seem silly and touristy, but I LOVE donkeys. Maybe it is because I laugh like one.

Greek islands, safari dreams

Greek islands, safari dreams | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Santorini is in a group of islands called the Cyclades which also include Paros, Antiparos, Naxos, Ios, Delos, Tinos, Anafi, and Folegandros. It is a very beautiful island and you will probably find the days will fly by. While all the islands look close together on a map, getting between them is not so easy. There are plenty of ferries, but few trips that would allow for a day on another island with enough time to explore. The nearest island with day return ferries is Ios.

#Diving in #Greece can satisfy even the most #experienced of divers

#Diving in #Greece can satisfy even the most #experienced of divers | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Most diving destinations around the world offer an opportunity to explore marine nature. In Greece, diving also offers a look into modern history.

From the Gulf of Evia to the Saronic Gulf, both close to Athens, and the Ionian Sea in western Greece, to the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea, Greece’s seabed is a vast museum of modern wrecks. Offering more than just rusted metal sheets, each wreck carries its own unique history.

Fighter planes that once tore through the skies, World War II naval submarines and destroyers that engaged in major battles, cargo and passenger ships that sailed the seas, lie sunken and preserved in good condition following their inglorious ends. Plunging into the waters and counting the meters is like counting the decades backwards until you reach these sunken ships and planes. 

Kostas Thoktaridis, a diver and explorer of naval history, estimates that the number of contemporary-era wrecks in Greece amount to roughly 1,500. Of these, some 500 may be explored and attract divers, from beginners to advanced, from all over the world. If this is your sport, get your wet suit, mask, and flippers ready and fill your tanks with oxygen, or visit one of the many certified diving centers operating in Greece for an introduction, with the help of experienced instructors, into the magic of wreck diving. Even during the winter months, the weather is usually appropriate, the waters are clear, and the water temperature is pleasant.

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.
