Greece is one of those destinations that has a variety of places to visit. From the islands to bustling cities, there is plenty to do. I love that you can combine an island with a city destination, in the same country.

This island can get pretty packed, but its views over the Aegean Sea never seem to fail. With two main cities, Fire and Oia, the island is buzzing with an unforgettable energy.
If you’re looking for the most energetic destination in Greece, Mykonos is the one. Rent quads, zip around the beach parties, and stay up late into the night dancing under the Greek moon. During the afternoon you can escape into shelter of a cool bungalow. Be sure to book a room near a pool as you’ll need it for the summer months.
A diverse city with constantly-changing neighborhoods. Athens offers an opportunity to jump into history. This is the destination for those looking to experience a cosmopolitan city.
This island could be considered the darling of the Cyclades, as it is just that charming. It doesn’t see as much of the crowds like Santorini or Mykonos, yet there is enough going on. Sail around the island, take a drive into the countryside, or have a beach to yourself.

The smaller of the islands, this one is for those looking to have an escape in a natural destination. The iconic chapel on the hill sits as an anchor to the island, offering one of the best views around.
