The Cyclades

The most famous Greek islands

The Cyclades are famous throughout the world for their architecture and, more recently, for their nightlife. The most famous of these 39 islands is undoubtedly the cosmopolitan Mykonos. White houses, crystal clear water and the fresh Aegean Sea breeze… Every single island has its capital or “chora” with narrow streets and small chapels dotted throughout. Don’t miss the blue domed churches of Santorini overlooking the Aegean Sea.
