The Greek Islands - small islands, big personality
The Ionian Islands
The Ionian Islands do not conform entirely to our mental image of a stereotypical whitewashed Greek archipelago. Their green mountainous interiors are a world apart from the Cyclades or the Dodecanese, and their historical and cultural DNA is firmly rooted in the west rather than the east: while most of Greece was ruled for centuries by the Ottoman Empire, the Ionian Islands were an integral part of the Venetian Maritime Republic for over 500 years.

The Sporades Islands
Situated about 120km due north of Athens, just off Greece’s east coast, the Sporades archipelago is one of the Mediterranean’s lesser known and least visited island groups. Only four of the 24 islands – Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros - are inhabited, and the further one travels from the mainland, the more one strays off the beaten path.
