Undiscovered Greek Islands

  • Few are aware that God-like Achilles hid on Skyros to avoid joining the Trojan War, and King Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, met and fell in love with his wife Olympia, at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods in Samothraki.
  • Chios is the reputed birthplace of Homer, Ikaria produced the Pramnian wine that was known throughout antiquity.
  • Sifnos was famed for its wealth on account of its gold and silver mines.
  • Amorgos was an important center of Cycladic culture.
  • These islands are unknown to most travelers. Scattered across Homer’s “wine-dark” sea, they are undiscovered to the throngs of tourists and remain the jewels of the Aegean Sea. We have selected islands not only because they are uncrowded and have preserved their character, but also because they represent a wonderful cross-section of history, culture, and architectural styles. Late summer in Greece is an ideal time to cruise in the Aegean Sea when the light is golden and the days pleasantly warm.
