Greece is a country in Southern Europe with the 11th longest coastline in the world, sharing borders with Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey, and with islands in the Aegean, Ionian and Mediterranean Seas.
As one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, the country’s fabulous beaches, whitewashed homes, historical sites and favourable climate attract huge numbers of visitors to its islands year round, though the majority arrive between April and October.
Whether you arrive on the mainland by sea or by air, the majority of islands can only be reached by ferry. With the number of services on offer, as you may expect, Greek ferries are of a high standard and most ferry companies feature a modern and luxurious fleet. All Greek islands are linked to the mainland, some directly, some indirectly and island-hopping is great experience, not to be missed.
Due to being a gateway to the islands, the Greek mainland is well connected to Italy across the Adriatic Sea too.
The Dodecanese Islands in the Southeastern Aegean Sea is a group of 12 large islands and numerous smaller ones, located close to the West coast of Turkey, in the sunniest corner of Greece.
The islands boast crystal clear waters, sandy or pebbly beaches, Byzantine and medieval monuments and unique traditional settlements. Its historical capital Rhodes not only offers beautiful beaches, its also a magnificent old city full of beautifully preserved medieval treasure.
