HERAKLION: JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF CRETE
One of the most popular and fashionable places to spend the summer is Heraklion, the former Venetian Candia, the capital of Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, which attracts thousands of tourists each year.
Strolling through the city streets, you can admire the beauty of the landscape, renowned for its heavenly beaches and crystal-clear sea, combined with the charm of its history, with interesting architectural remains that tell of a glorious past and reveal fascinating myths such as that of the flight of Icarus, the son of Daedalus, inextricably linked to the legend of the labyrinth of Knossos, where King Minos locked up the Minotaur, which was defeated by the Attic hero Theseus, with the help of Ariadne. If you are curious, just 5 km from Heraklion you can mix culture and mythology with a visit to the Palace of Knossos, the ruins of which were discovered by the British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans.
RHODES, TRAVEL TO THE ISLAND OF THE SUN
Those who choose Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese Islands, know that they are going to a place where the sun shines practically the whole year round. Known in ancient times as the Island of Helios, born from the love of the sun god Helios for the nymph daughter of Poseidon and Aphrodite, the island is one of Greece's most popular destinations. Historically, Rhodes' fame is linked to the renowned Colossus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, built, according to commentators of the period, by the people of Rhodes in honor of the Sun God, as a sign of gratitude for having protected them from invasion by the Greeks.
ATHENS, WHERE EVERYTHING IS DIVINE

Beneath the Acropolis, to fully immerse yourself in the essence of the city, take a walk in the Plaka, the most ancient and famous district of Athens, where you can listen to the bouzouki, dance the sirtaki and have a good glass of ouzo, the typical Greek drink, accompanied by a tasty pita gyros, for lovers of street foodor mezedes, the traditional and extremely tasty local snacks, for those who do not wish to give up their aperitif.
