For some insight into what to expect, here are the top 5 spots to look out for while on your Greek Aegean Islands trip.

 

The Olympic Stadium

A classic symbol of Athenian culture, the Panathenaic Olympic Stadium is definitely not a place to miss. The stadium is the original site of the Panathenaic games. These were athletic competitions done in tribute to the goddess Athena. Throughout the centuries, the stadium has gone through various constructive evolutions. Since 1896, Stadium has been the site of the new Olympic games that go on to this day. This is the kind of site that helps make the Greek Aegean Islands such a historically iconic destination.

A place of simultaneous peace and adventure, both Golden Beach and New Golden Beach are the perfect launch for your fun in the sun. Each beach carries unique attributes that make no two lands the same. These range from the long beach of Agios Ioannis, to the beautiful, crystalline waters of Monastiri.

 

Naoussa

The village of Naoussa has a little bit for everyone, mostly due to it is a site of beauty and history. Home to authentically preserved sites, Naoussa is home to pretty beaches, churches, museums, and even a live show representing historic pirate raids.
