Greece

 

 

 

Often called the cradle of civilization, Greece has beautiful islands, white houses, blue sea and magnificent landscapes.

 

All of the Greek islands are known for their beauty, but Santorini is the most famous. Wonderful wines come from Santorini. Called the Island of Half Moon, it is the non-submerged portion of a volcano that exploded in a kettle eruption. This event took place in 1650 BC.

 

Greece is known for its wines. Greek vineyards are rich with a multitude of varieties and a limitless spectrum of choices. With the main course, as an aperitif or a dessert, let the Greek wines help create a perfect atmosphere.

 

Santorini is one of the most visited islands yet all of the Greek islands are one of those destinations that are worth knowing: breathtaking scenery, plenty of history.

 

Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens and erected unique monuments. In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in the years since, it has become an attractive modern metropolis with much charm.

 

Around the Acropolis, the tour starts at the Temple of Olympian Zeus, one of the largest in antiquity, and close by is Hadrian’s Arch, which forms the symbolic entrance to the city. The sight of the Acropolis lit up at night is an exquisite vision. The Parthenon is a timeless masterpiece and also a must-see.

 

My favorite island is Cyprus. Rising out of the waters of the European Mediterranean, pointing towards Syria, Turkey and Lebanon, it is a wonderful blend of nations. It is an odd mix, a kaleidoscope of European, Asian, and African. Draped in grapes growing over arbors, sunlight shines through everywhere. There are lovely, lovely cobblestone walkways and magnificent vistas. It calms all your senses and creates fantasies.
