Athens, The Enjoyable City

Endless ancient Greek and Roman ruins, Byzantine churches and an amazing night life. Trips to close areas are a must if you want to make your vacations unforgettable.

 

Why Are The Cycladic Islands Number One Destination For Vacations?
Every Greek island is worth visiting as it has its own uniqueness and ‘character’ totally different from the others. The Cycladic complex of small islands of the Aegean Sea is located not far from Athens. Thus it is easy to reach by boat from Piraeus. Stonewashed houses reflecting the bright Greek sun, crystal clear waters, fancy clubs and delicious cuisine are what most tourists long for.

 

Paros, The New Queen Of The ‘Cycladic World’
You definitely know that Mykonos has been adored by celebrities and the jet-set since the 50’s. You may also know that Santorini is one of the top wedding and honeymoon destinations on earth. Paros promises something for everyone and has become the Cycladic Queen. It offers a unique night-life as well as excellent restaurants with fresh fish and local recipes. Additionally, the landscape and the picturesque villages are really attractive.
