is an abundance of cruising and yachting options. Quite simply, the
waters surrounding Greece offer perfect conditions for a cruise

Aegean Sea, which has over 1,400 islands. Each island offers a
different and memorable experience for the visitor, from the
idyllic Skopelos to the vibrant nightlife on islands such as
Mykonos and Paros. You can charter a yacht, or join an organized
cruise on a small or large boat. The possibilities are endless,
from cruising between party islands, viewing the historical sights
or discovering secluded and quiet islands, where you can moor in a
natural harbor, tucked amongst the cliffs.
Greece has long been a popular destination for tourists
attracted by the country's beaches, sunny weather, energetic
nightlife, historical sites and natural beauty. With Athens as the
focal point, there is much to enjoy on the mainland, while off the
country's extensive coastline and on the surrounding islands, there
is a wealth of beauty and adventure. As a result, Greece is one of
Europe's most popular cruising destinations.
Visitors to Greece are faced with an array of tempting choices.
The mountainous mainland reaches down to pristine beaches on the
coast and the Aegean Sea is dotted with idyllic islands. Athens is
the centre and the soul of Greece, with its deeply embedded culture
and hedonistic nightlife. Here, the comforts of modern Europe are
balanced with the rich history of the ancient world. The historical
and cultural heritage of the country continues to have a profound
affect on the West through its literature, art and philosophy, and
when standing next to the ruins of the Parthenon, overlooking
Athens, it is not hard to see why.
