Greece & Greek Islands Holidays Overview

Greece lies at the heart of the Mediterranean, surrounded by clear seas, with a plethora of small islands, each boasting their own individual character. Greece has long been a favoured holiday destination, offering a warm welcome, delicious cuisine, made from the freshest of local ingredients, beautiful beaches and a treasure trove of fascinating history to explore. We believe that we have brought together a truly enticing portfolio of the most attractive of her islands, the most charming boutique and family hotels and the most interesting historic and cultural sites.

Natural beauty
Greece boasts one of the Mediterranean’s most diverse coastlines, her islands accounting for up to 7.500 kms of the total 16,000 km coastline. Her turquoise waters, picturesque island villages and green hinterland make for a beautiful holiday backdrop. Add in to the mix, the historic city of Athens and you have an irresistible holiday proposition. As well as clear, calm waters, Greece enjoys 395 beaches, which have been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag for their cleanliness and facilities.

World heritage
Greece is known as the cradle of European civilisation, and offers a wealth of history and culture for the interested visitor to explore. No doubt the Acropolis in Athens is on most people’s list of must-see attractions. There are in fact a total of 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Greece, including the Acropolis, the sites of Delphi and Olympia, the medieval city of Rhodes and many other sites of cultural, historic and natural significance.

Over 6,000 islands
Greece has over 6000 islands and islets dotted throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas, of which only 227 are inhabited. They offer adverse landscape of beaches, bays, coves and coastal caves, which combined with their laid-back ambience and temperate climate make them popular summer holiday destinations. The Greek islands were home to some of the oldest European civilisations, suh as the Cycladic and Minoan civilisations, traces of which still remain in a fascinating architectural heritage.

Athens
We offer many different ways to fit a stay in Athens into your holiday, from cruising to tailor-making a trip, or simply a stand-alone city break.

Tailor-made Greece
One of the things which makes Diamond Sky different from other tour operators, is our flexibility and our ability to use our knowledge and experience to tailor a holiday to suit your individual requirements and budget. Please see for some sample tailor-made itineraries combining the Greek capital, Athens with stays on the Greek Islands. We are also able to combine a stay in Athens with a classical tour, or even with a tour followed by a cruise. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

Combine Greece with Turkey
Why not combine a stay in one of the beautiful resorts of the Turkish mainland, with a stay on one of the charming Greek islands? You can enjoy the best of both worlds, by sampling both beautiful countries and their friendly hospitality. Using the convenient ferry services which link the Turkish mainland with the Greek islands, we can help you to put together your own individual tailor-made itinerary.

Island of Santorini

Thought by some to be the location of the lost city of Atlantis, the spectacular volcanic landscape gives this delightful island its unique character. Its capital, Fira, with its whitewashed buildings is perched high above the clear Aegean waters.

The steep climb from the landing place up to the city of Fira takes visitors up hundreds of steps, cut into the rock, to the whitewashed buildings perched high above the volcanic crater. If you prefer, you can take a ride on a donkey, or use the funicular railway. The narrow, winding streets of Fira and the beautiful views are a fitting reward.

Island of Mykonos

One of the best known of the Greek Islands, this whitewashed paradise is in the heart of the Cyclades. It is an enchanting mix of glamour blended with the traditional life of the islands.

According to mythology the island was formed from the petrified bodies of giants which were slain by Hercules. Its steep mountains give way to low, rocky hills and superb sandy beaches. Elia is one of the best golden sandy bays - perfect for a laid-back beach holiday. The sandy beaches are lapped by the clearest azure waters.

Naxos is the largest and the greenest of the islands of the Cyclades with dramatic mountains, fertile valleys, lush green gorges and stunning seascapes.

The architecture is an appealing blend of traditional Cycladic cubic houses, beautiful churches and monasteries and imposing Venetian castles and towers, dating from the period when Naxos flourished as the seat of the Ducat of the Aegean.
