Athens must see:

The Acropolis: Not one, but several temples including the Parthenon, surely the most famous of the Athens landmarks. Built in the 5th century BC the temple is dedicated to Athena. Although still standing, it has suffered a great deal of damage. Not the least of which occurred during the Turkish occupation, when it was used to store weapons and explosives which then, surprisingly, blew up!

The Parliament Building: An impressive building which until it burned down in 1910 was a royal residence. It was restored and opened in 1935 as the home of the National Assembly. It was built by King Otto in 1835...read more about Athens, Greece

Corfu Island - (Korkyra - Coryfo):
Mount of God, Pandokrator for the local people, is the tallest peak on the green island of Kerkyra (Corfu for the non Greek), and is situated in the northern part of the Ionian Sea , between the Greek mainland and Albania and Italy. The mountain was named after God, Who is pandokrator, that is to say, He governs everything...

Corfu
Crescent shaped Corfu, the second largest and most beautiful of the Ionian Islands (the "Eptanissa" or "Seven Islands") is located in the north of the Ionian Sea, across from Italy and 3 km from the Albanian coast on the east. The name is derived from the Greek "korifo" or summit, which refers to the Acropolis where the city stands and where refuge was sought from pirates during the Byzantine period. To the Greeks it is known as Kerkyra, from Corcyra, its ancient capital city. Verdant and fertile from abundant rainfall and lavishly picturesque, its great natural beauty and local color is its enchantment. Unlike the islands of the Cyclades (Mykonos, Santorini, etc.) the scenery is not composed of white cubic houses on barren stretches of rock. Corfu is endowed with a landscape of rustic scenery and woodlands, rich plains, hills, flourishing olive groves, imposing mountains, valleys, lakes, charming harbors and bays, long coasts with broad beaches, and traditional villages, which provide spectacular vistas and quite a variety of destinations for the tourist. Many powers dominated the island over its long history but it was the lengthy presence of the Venetians that gave the island its character and permeated the culture, art, music, and mostly notably, the architecture, and cuisine....read more about Corfu Greece

Cyprus Overview
Further inland there are the Troodos Mountains with vast area of vines and forests. It is an absolute marvel to see. It boasts the highest amount of grapes produced for the size of the land. The mountains are great to get out of the heat and feel the cool air. The nights have an aroma of pine trees and wild herbs. There are a number of plants that can only grow in Cyprus, so is worth the visit for that alone. The valleys are very fruitful bearing almonds, cherry, apple, pear and plum. They have quaint little villages scattered around, that haven't changed. To go into the heart of a village and taste the wines and experience their hospitality is amazing. . The south west end of Cyprus has developed into its own, especially Paphos. It is still as old world as it used to be. A quaint town without the bustle of a holiday resort. It does have an area of hotels but has a 5 to 10 minute walk away from the main town. It is a great location and area for viewing the harbour and beaches. There are two beaches that are very attractive, which lay half way between Limassol and Paphos.These are Evdimou (which has a bar) and Pissouri (which has a hotel complex). Up on the North Coast lies the little town Polis with Latchi nearby. Latchi is a harbour town and often serves swordfish straight from the sea. It boasts a most beautiful beach. Further along the coast lies the place where Aphrodite used to bathe. Its name is Fontana Amorosa that means a foaming spring....read more about Cyprus

Santorini:
Santorini is a chain of islets created by the erupton of Thirassia (the largest and only one inhabited), the black stone islets "Palea Kameni" and "Nea Kameni" (meaning "old burnt one" and "new burnt one") and "Aspronisi" (meaning "white island"), the only part of the original island. It was first named "Kallisti" (the most beautiful), then "Thira" after the Spartan King who colonized it in the 9th century BC and finally "Santorini" after St. Irini of Thessalonki who was exiled and died there in the 3rd c. AD. Since ancient times it has been inhabited by Phoenecians, Dorians, Egyptians, crusaders, pirates, Romans, and Byzantines. Archaeological finds include pottery from around 3000-2000 BC (Early Cycladic Civilization and Bronze Age).

Visitors to the island debark from the harbor at Skala and make the steep ascent of 587 steps to the capital, Fira, on foot, donkey, or flinicular railway. Thira, visually striking as it is positioned on a cliff which is actually the crater's rim charms visitors with its narrow, winding, cobbled alleyways, and typically cycladic white washed houses packed together and brillant under the strong sun. From there one has a superb view of the Kamenes which can be visited by boat...read more about Santorini
