A trip to Ephesus is a must for culture fans - home to the Temple of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the World) and Library of Celsus. Make for the hills of Selcuk to admire the House of the Virgin Mary and taste local fruit-based wines in Sirince. The Greek island of Patmos sits in the eastern Aegean Sea, separated from Turkey by the Mycale Strait. This sacred island is rumoured to be the place where Saint John wrote the Book of Revelation and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit the cave-based Holy Monastery of the Apocalypse, between the port of Skala and Patmos Town, where Saint John is believed to have heard the voice of God. Patmos Town is home to the Monastery of Saint John the Divine, which boasts 14th-century frescoes and also a treasury/library packed with over 2,000 ancient books including parts of the manuscript of St Mark's Gospel. Lively Skala is the perfect spot to unwind and sample local produce, fish, and drinks in the traditional bakeries and seaside tavernas and cafes.
6
Rhodes, Greece
The Port of Rhodes sits on the northern edge of Rhodes Island — 12 miles off the coast of Turkey. With just a short walk you’ll reach the Citadel of Rhodes and its various boutiques, cafes and souvenir shops. Immerse yourself further in Rhodes’ fascinating history and visit the Palace of the Grand Masters. You can take a short 50-minute taxi ride to Lindos and witness the breathtaking Acropolis of Lindos. There are also an abundance of beaches on Rhodes to chill out and relax.
7
Mykonos, Greece
Mykonos sits in the Aegean Sea with traditional white-washed houses and bright-blue waters. Wander the twisting narrow lanes, which were originally designed to confuse pirate invaders, and discover quaint shops and boutiques. Visit stylish beach bars, modern restaurants and see the iconic 16th-century Venetian windmills which overlook Mykonos town — the island's capital.

Argostoli, Kefalonia
Argostoli is Kefalonia's main port town and boasts a beautiful natural harbour. Stroll around the town centre and discover plentiful shops, cafes, bars and restaurants around Plateia Valianou and along Lithostroto main street. Pay a visit to the Museum of Archaeology and the Cultural Museum. Head to Kampanas Square and enjoy breath-taking views of the town and the beautiful Koutavos Lagoon. Keep your eyes peeled for the wild loggerhead turtles each morning in Argostoli Bay. Walk across the De Bosset Bridge and enjoy the stunning views. Watch the sea flow inland and disappears into sinkholes at the Katavothres. Soak up the sun on nearby Fenari beach and discover the picturesque St Theodore lighthouse.
9
Corfu, Greece
The island of Corfu sits off the north coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea. Surrounded by rugged mountains and lined with golden beach resorts, it's a cosmopolitan island with a strong, traditional character. Corfu has long been a hugely popular holiday destination due to its laid-back atmosphere, fun beaches, fantastic climate, and welcoming villages. Its old town is filled with Byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses and French-style houses. Spend time relaxing on the sand or enjoying water sports in the sea, before sampling the island's delicious cuisine — often a tasty blend of Greek and Italian — at a beachfront restaurant. The waterfront is lined with bars and cafes, and there are plenty of craft markets for buying souvenirs.
10
Santorini, Greece
Curving around a majestic caldera, Santorini is one of the prettiest of the Greek Isles. Hop on the tender boat ashore, where the cable car will whisk you up to the cliff-top village of Thira with its quaint streets filled with restaurants, bars, and shops. Pay a visit to the cave houses at the beautiful village of Oia before heading down the steps to Amoudi Bay to feast on fresh seafood.
