They say of the Aegean that wherever you’re standing, on beach or mountainside, in valley or wood, even at sea, there’s a whole world of history beneath your feet. This summer, you could be lying on golden sand gazing up at 3,000-year-old columns. Everywhere the natural beauty of the islands is adorned with temples, castles, fortresses, sacred ruins, monasteries, churches built on old pagan sites and villages where families have lived and loved for generations. You will experience layer upon layer of culture and heritage to intrigue and entice you.
Every stone has a story to tell, as have the countless museums, full of artifacts to help you unravel fact from myth. Yet, sometimes it is good just to let the mystery be, walking among the statues and pillars of the past, losing yourself in the fantasy of convening with ancient deities , the heroes of fearsome battles springing to life around you and the Mediterranean sun smiling down on your daydreams, as it has done on all those that came before you.
Take a stroll with the ancients.
