We hop on a ship and visit two beautiful Aegean islands: Santorini and Melos.
The official name of this island in the southern Aegean Sea is Thira. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago of a volcanic caldera. The island was named Santorini by the Latin Empire in the 13th century. It is a combination of two words Saint and Irini.
It is a beautiful island.
But the number of tourists deposited daily from the cruise ships, makes it very difficult to enjoy its beauty.
A boat ride from Santorini is the island of Melos. We like the island.
The main town Plaka is very nice.
Many beaches are nested at white cliffs with a very unusual coast.
And what is also very attractive: this island does not have as many tourists as Santorini.
The island is also known because of Venus de Milo – she has her home at the Louvre. The sculpture was created somewhere around 115BC and was found in 1820 by a peasant digging for a marble to sell. The spot has a plaque at the place he found it and a description of the event near the site.
Greece – land of ancient civilizations, beautiful Byzantine churches and soulful songs.
From the Parthenon to the wonderful islands in the Aegean Sea, the history, splendid country sides and the quaint small towns – Greece is magical.
These travel videos will take you to ancient sites, like Olympia, Delphi, Athens’ Acropolis, Constantinople and many more. Come along.
