"Opa!" for Island Deals
Once a playground for gods of ancient mythology, the Greek Islands today serve as a paradise for mortals. It's where white-washed homes and blue-domed churches hug white-sand beaches and beautiful blue waters.
With 6,000 islands scattered across the Aegean and Ionian seas, choose from the 227 inhabited ones that welcome tourists from spring to early autumn.
An easy solution: Consider a cruise or packaged vacation that bundles popular islands such as Crete, Corfu, Santorini and Mykonos -- all also accessible by ferry or plane from Athens.
