One week stay on Greek islands turned out to be full of totally different experiences, in comparison to the time spent in and around Athens and the Peloponnese. Small villages full of donkeys, cats and white houses, as well as some of the most breathtaking landscapes are probably the quintessence of greekness and you will find them all on Cyclades.
Dazzling white and pastel colors of the narrow streets in the largest city on Mykonos - Chora, are an ideal place for a stroll and immersion in the Greek atmosphere, music and cuisine. Like in many Greek villages, also in Chora we come across a large amount of friendly-oriented cats. Also, sooner or later, all streets lead to a port which is usually the most animated center of the local life. The one located in Chora is truly delightful, full of taverns and residents, enjoying the atmosphere of the evening.
As for Santorini, I guess this place doesn’t need too many comments. Famous for its black beaches, white and blue towns, breathtaking landscapes and some of the most excellent wines - this volcanic Island is called the Pearl of the Cyclades not without reason. Just have a look.
After all the whiteness and blueness of Mykonos and Santorini, a medieval and very well-preserved Old Town in Rhodes was quite a surprise. Moats and gates, citadels and gothic ruins, but also the Byzantine splendor and mosques – such an unusual mixture is a true landmark of Rhodes capital city.
