Greece offers the traveler the
comforts of modern Europe in close proximity to the stark beauty
of the ancient world. There is no denying that the historical
and cultural heritage of Greece continues to resonate throughout
the modern Western world - in its literature, art, philosophy
and politics. Reminders of the country's glory are all over
Greece - from Athens' Parthenon and Delphi's Temple of Apollo,
to the ruins on Crete of the Minóan city of Knossós, a
civilization reaching even further back into history.
Scattered throughout the calm blue waters of
the Aegean are Greece's 1,400 islands, the largest of which is
Crete, each with its own special story. The serenity of islands
like Skópelos contrasts with the hedonistic party islands such
as Mykonos and Páros where the worship of Dionysus, the god of
revelry, continues to the beat of garage and house music.
