Hidden in the very South- East corner of Greece and hugged by the Turkish coast the Dodecanese complex of islands wait to be discovered. Their strategic position, in the middle of the most important East-West trade routes, made many seafarer powers fight for dominance. Thus, today there are traces of everyone from Greeks and Romans to crusading medieval knights, and from Byzantine and Ottoman rulers to 20th-century Italian bureaucrats. The result is a diverse group of islands with fascinating archaeological sites, ancient walking trails , medieval castles, and charming whitewashed villages.
Whether you’ve seen them in the movies or simply heard a friend speak about them after returning from holiday, the Greek islands are likely to have flirted with your imagination.This trip combines probably the two most beautiful: The spectacular Crete and the precious gem of the Aegean, Santorini.
