Explore the Old Town of Corfu or Crete, or travel even further back in time to see the ancient Acropolis of Athens or the Temple of Aphaia on Aegina.

Before you leave, drink a frappé iced coffee or ouzo, an anise-flavored aperitif, and sample some regional culinary highlights.

Join a wine tasting tour if you can, and don't miss a trip to the cascading waterfalls, forests and bright lakes of Krka or Plitvice Lakes National Park.
