Islands in Thira
Santorini (Thira)
(96)
Fira is the capital of Santorini, a small island in an archipelago of volcanic islands in the Aegean. If you arrive by boat, you'll see a small town "hanging" off the side of a mountain that seems incredible. Keep in mind that you'll be sailing through the crater of a volcano! Once you arrive, there are three ways to get to the village: In cable car, up a steep and winding path, or by donkey, which is quite an experience. You will not believe the views you'll have as you head up the hill. The contrast of the blue Aegean with the white houses and chapels is incredible. Seeing the small ships in the distance is also a wonderful experience. From wherever you are, walking down streets, in a shop, bar, or restaurant, you'll have amazing views that you will never forget. You'll love it!
Islands in Corfu
Corfu
(48)
The high temperatures in Corfu in the summer afternoon twice made us think to ourselves that we should go up to the old fort, take a photograph from afar and bathe in the sea and go to the next cove, which has many curiosities of Anadel life, there were 6 people who agreed to go bathing, the two of us and a family, we were all in Seville, great beaches as well

Acropolis of Athens

I've wanted to see this since I read about it in elementary school. It did not disappoint.

Villages in Oía
Villa de Oia
(19)
A must if you go to Santorini is walking the streets of this beautiful town. You can get close using the bus that leaves from the capital, Thira, or rent a car to explore the rest of the island (45.00 € a Hyundai i10 for the whole day). You also have the option of a quad with which you can feel the warm air of the island on your skin. Once in Oia all you have to do is walk through the streets, either following the main street or strolling through the intricate web that form the streets and where you will meet impossible terraces over the sea and small houses with doors and windows brightly colored and adorned with plants which will relax your mind. Also you can visit the many shops and flooding the village where you will find beautiful craft crafts and jewelry. Totally recommended, before leaving the village, is to take a cold beer at any of the inns that hang over the side to continue the visit to Santorini with new strength! I'm sure someday I'll heard it is pending to see with my own eyes, remarkable sunsets!
Historical Monuments in Athens
Parthenon
(66)
The Parthenon is the emblem of the city of Athens. It is very impressive when you arrive there, although you'll already have seen it a thousand times on the TV or on postcards you´ve been sent, but it´s not the same as being there in front of such a famous monument. It is registered as a world heritage by UNESCO, and it´s now being renovated. It´s a bit annoying because you can not enter inside the temple, it was damaged so much by people that they are now trying to preserve it as much as they can . I recommend you arrive early in the morning so that you can enter straight away. There is a pass available for all the ancient sites, which you can buy the day before, and arrive at 8 when it opens to avoid the tour groups. The temple was built for the goddess Athena, it was a large statue in the center, about 12 meters, of which nothing remains. The Parthenon replaced an older temple destroyed by an invasion. It's a shame that there are not many ornaments of the temple remaining, most were taken away by the English and can be seen in the British Museum in London ...

Erechtheion
(42)
The Erechtheion is an Ionic masterpiece that was built 421-406 BC and it's the most famous temple - the famous tribune of the Caryatids. It's a polychrome portico with 6 columns (originally) with female figures, all the figures are copies, 5 of the originals are in the Acropolis Museum and the last is in the British Museum, London. The realization of this porch was a currency for the time to be used in place of columns the "caryatids".

Historical Monuments in Athens
Temple of Olympian Zeus
(34)
This colossal temple is the largest in Greece and it took over 700 years to complete. Originally it had 104 Corinthian columns that reach 17 meters high, of which only 15 remain. The credit for its completion goes to Adriano who placed a giant gold and ivory statue of Zeus inside. The Arch of Hadrian, that functioned as a gate to the enclosure, connects to the road that passes by the Lysicrates monument and also passes along the way of Tripods. It is here that the winners of the ancient theater competitions dedicated their trophies to Dionysus. The Marble Arch served as a border between the old city and the Roman city. This is clear from the inscriptions on top. On one side it says "This is the old Athens, city of Theseus" and on the other "This is the city of Hadrian, which is no longer that of Theseus". Just so that it is clear.

Viewpoints in Oía
Sunset in Oia
(10)
In the summer of the year 2012 I had the chance to visit Santorini, in Greece, in the Aegean Sea. I was already aware that it would be one of the most lovely islands that Greece has, but to arrive and be there, not only reaffirmed what I already knew but it was one of the most lovely places I had been in my life. Being there, just let yourself enjoy the beauty that surrounds you from the tiniest to the biggest corner. Its architecture and white contrast make a perfect combination with the blue of the sky and the sea that surrounds it. Being there inevitably calls romance, the dream,and enjoyment. All this is just why most couples from Europe, Asia and other continents choose this little paradise for marriage, as the environment is seen and felt in this place is romantic and marvelous. In Oia, a small town of the island we can see one of the most beautiful sunsets, with a range of stunning colors. Santorini is definitely and will always be the best destination for anyone whose goal is to enjoy beauty at its best
Beaches in Thira
Red Beach
(20)
Red Beach is one of the most popular and beautiful beaches on Santorini. It has red fine sand and rocks and is located near the ancient village of Akrotiri. The beach can be reached by boat or by car. The beach gets its red color from the iron sedimentary rocks and the sand itself is actually red like the rocks. The sun is quite bright, but you can rent an umbrella and a sun chair for 7€. There is plenty of free space before noon so make sure to go early because it fills up with people. The first few feet of water near the shore are quite rocky, so you better pack some sandals. And when the evening comes, prepare to see one of the most beautiful sunsets on Earth.
Streets in Mikonos
Little Venice of Mykonos
(36)
Beauty Unleashed in one of the nicest places I have visited. From the windmills there are views to Little Venice highly worth a mention, but here are some of different angles and lights. This little wonder of Venetian origin, near the Kastro (old town) and in the centre of the neighborhood of Alefkandra (Natural panning site).
Historical Monuments in Kalambáka
Monasteries of Meteora
(12)
For me, the monasteries in Meteora are one of the most spectacular places in the world ...it is beautiful and has really spectacular views. There are seven monasteries nestled around the mountains, most of them with monks but a few with nuns. At first, the monasteries were only accessible by ropes that the monks raised and lowered. I asked a monk how often they changed the ropes and the answer we received was "whenever the Lord wants," an answer that wasn't entirely reassuring! If you go there, it's best to spend the night in the village of Meteora since there are many places to sleep. If you're in a rental car, you can visit all the monasteries in one trip. The place is spectacular and impressive but a bit hard to get to so make sure you have your GPS handy. You can't miss it if you're in Greece!
Harbors in Athens
Port of Piraeus
(16)
Piraeus is the port in Athens. It is an essential part of the city, even though it's quite far from downtown. It has shipyards, factories manufacturing agricultural machinery, glass, textiles, and chemicals. As you head towards Athens, the movement in the streets is relentless. If you walk along the waterfront near the famous blue-domed Orthodox Church, you'll see a number of important and beautifully-maintained public buildings. Of course, there is an intense amount of small boat docks for small ships and large passenger ships and is wher you catch the ferry to the nearby islands.

Islands in Rodas
Rhodes
(17)
Rhodes is a beautiful city. On a cruise I recently took, Rhodes and Dubrovnik were the cities that I liked by far. The atmosphere is great, and while it was too hot, it did not detract from this city beautiful at all.
Islands in Naxos Islands
Naxos
(10)
This island is located in the Cyclades, Greece. It's the perfect place to relax and bathe on its beaches. The old city is wonderful and the people are friendly, quiet, simple and enjoyable. The food and the prices are very good. The old town is lovely. The beaches are quiet with fine sand. It's stone gateways are wonderful.
Historical Monuments in Trikala
Meteora
(10)
Meteora has been one of the most amazing places I have visited. When you first drive up and start seeing these peaks, you are like "cool" then when you start getting closer and start realizing that there are structures at the tops then you start questioning how is that possible. As you get closer you begin to wonder how in the world this was done, it is ridiculous how they were able to build these monasteries at the top of these peaks such a long time ago. It had to be aliens!! The monasteries all vary in size, but all have in common the amazingness of unbelievable architecture, intertwined with nature and marvelous engineering. One of my top places I've had the privilege of seeing.
Ruins in Heraklion
The Palace of Knossos
(12)
Knossos Palace is just five kilometers away from Iraklion, and it was the cradle of European civilization. According to Greek mythology there was the famous labyrinth with a Minotaur in it. It has beautiful frescoes and beautiful views of a hill full of olive trees.
Neighborhoods in Athens
Plaka
(23)
Plaka is probably the most popular neighborhood in Athens, as well as one of the oldest. And, given its location just below the Acropolis, it's also the one that attracts the most tourists. The neighborhood consists of a cluster small streets full of restaurants and souvenir shops and is divided into two sections (High Plaka and Anafiotika) by Adrianou Street, one of the oldest streets in the city. The origin of the name is unclear, but there are two more or less accepted ideas: one states that the name derives from the Albanian word "pliakou," meaning old. The second version references a large stone plaque which was once located between the Adrianou, Tripodon and Lysicratous streets. Plaka is small and very easy to cross on foot. I liked the neighborhood because of the historic streets and monuments, though the crowds of tourists are a bit overwhelming. It's not the best place to eat. The prices aren't exorbitant but the quality and authenticity of the food just didn't seem very good. If you do want to eat, make sure to pick a restaurant frequented by locals.

Beaches in Elafonisi
Elafonisi Beach
(14)
It´s not the Caribbean, it´s Crete! Hehehe, in my opinion, one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. It is to the south west of the island of Crete and its crystal clear water, the amount of fish that run through your feet, the fact that you have to wade deep into the water for it to cover you and that it is a virgen beach (no buildings around) make it a magnificent beach. The beach consists of two sandy areas separated by a tongue of water that reaches the knees. A must-see if you go to Crete.
