The Greek Islands are both ancient and incredible

People from all over the world have already, or soon will, be making plans to visit the islands that surround the country of Greece. Athens draws visitors who wish to tour the ancient past and in almost all cities of Greece, there are ruins to marvel at and museums to educate and entrance the tourists. If your cruise begins in Athens, you will arrive there and be off to explore distant shores.

Travelers will experience a multifaceted holiday that could easily be their dream come true. Shopping is literally everywhere, on the mainland and on the island, with booths and sidewalk stores that are just crammed with all sorts of souvenirs to take home to remember your trip by. Clothing, pottery, local soaps and jewelery are just some to mention and the designs are so unique, they are too good to resist.

One of the most popular islands of Greece is the island of Mykonos, where the jetsetters gather. You won’t want to miss this intriguing island. The most famous landmark in Greece is certainly the Acropolis. It is a tribute to Greek architecture that was constructed in the 5th century. Olympia was the site of the very first Olympic Games and was originally built as a sanctuary for those who worshiped Zeus. You remember him, the father of the Greek goddesses and gods. And still being excavated today, which started in 1872, is the tiny island of Delos, the birthplace of Apollo, Zeus’s son.
