Two of the most magical islands in Greece are linked by their dramatic beauty, an explosive moment in history and the fascinating legend of the lost city of Atlantis. Now you can enjoy these marvellous islands on one of our new two-island adventures.
Crete is a dream destination for many visitors to Greece. As popular as it is though, Crete still somehow manages to hold on to its unique personality. The beaches are an obvious reason to set your sights here. Heavenly stretches of golden sand or pebbles, clear waters, organised or secluded and off the beaten track. You’ll find every kind of beach here in Crete. Lap up some culture to, with Crete’s long history that includes, Minoan palaces, Venetian towns, Minoan palaces, Medieval Castles and Ottoman mosques and Byzantine monasteries.
Being such a large island – the third largest in Greece, there are so many things to see and do in Crete.
Breath-taking Santorini was shaped by a massive volcanic eruption that ripped the island apart about 3,500 years ago. It created the incomparable place that has become one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. Stunning sunsets; unusual beaches, some black or red; traditional villages; the ruins of an ancient city built before the volcano erupted and once thought to be Atlantis. And you can take a boat trip to explore the steaming islets at the centre of the sleeping volcano.
