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.
Italy is a boot-shaped peninsula situated in the Mediterranean Sea at the bottom of Western Europe, with the Tyrrhenian Sea to the West, Ionian Sea to the South and Adriatic Sea to the East.
Italy is the fifth most visited country in the world and contains more World Heritage Sites than any other country. Although Rome, Milan, Venice and Florence are the top tourist destinations in Italy, the country’s rich collections of art, culture and literature from many different periods and regions make it impossible to judge on where the most interesting location is.
With around four thousand miles of coastline, with countless gulfs, inlets, and long sandy beaches, Italy is truly adapted to the holiday lovers every need. Coastal cities with their sea resorts and awesome beaches are easily reachable by car with a variety of ferries and vessels large and small ready to sail you there.
