The mélange of Cycladic beauty and an exciting nightlife might be what makes the island of Mykonos one of Greece‘s most visited islands, as well as one of its most romantic spots. Inhabited by less than 10,000 people, Mykonos is the premier destination for couples looking to get away from it all.

Paros is an island for all seasons and all tastes, being authentic, traditional and intact in most of its parts. Being a typical Cycladian island, it gets very dry in summer, so for lovers of botany it is ideal to go in spring or autumn time (March, April, May or October, November). But for lovers of crystal, clear, blue waters and sunny virgin beaches, June and July are ideal. August is THE vacation month of the Greeks, so it gets very busy. No matter when you go you should try out these four great itineraries.

Frequent travelers to Greece and the Mediterranean are fond of lamenting the neglect the Grecian mainland receives due to the popular fascination with the better-known islands and archeological sites in and around Athens and elsewhere. This may be a bit of a false dichotomy, as it’s perfectly feasible to sample a bit of all of the above with some careful planning (we’re not talking about mainland China here, Greece is relatively small and easily traversed), but it is true that the beauty of many coastal and interior destinations are unfairly overlooked by incurious tourists hustling off to Piraeus. This can work to your advantage, however, if you forgo the ferries for, say, a rental car or tour package.
