Greek Isles

Strewn across the shimmering Aegean are hundreds of Greek Isles just waiting to be explored. Whether you're hopping from one to another by ferry, cruising aboard a big ship or enjoying the breezes from the deck of a sailboat, you'll discover that each of these islands has its own charms. Try Rhodes and Delos for crumbling ancient ruins, Syros for isolated beaches, Skopelos for verdant hikes, Mykonos for a gay-friendly party vibe, and Santorini for those famously picturesque views of the sea. (To learn more about which Greek Isles will suit your taste, see Greek Isles Revealed.) There's no shortage of choices when it comes to cruising the isles; GreekFerries.gr is the spot to look for ferry info, and the region is served by cruise lines such as Princess, Celebrity and SeaDream. G Adventures offers sailing trips.
