By Lauren Jade Hill

GREECE is a country of breathtaking landscapes, amazing islands and seascapes, paradise beaches, and cultural sites of global prominence.

Beauty in Greece is exquisite, timeless and unspoiled. It was in this sacred landscape that love was born. Greece is the birthplace of the winged God Eros, the son of Aphrodite; Whether you are looking for an ideal honeymoon destination or just a romantic escape, the beauty and diversity of the Greek landscape forms the most romantic backdrop to celebrate your love.

Explore with your other half the islands on a cruise and enjoy sun-kissed beaches, superb natural landscapes, cosmopolitan resorts and traditional settlements alike or taste exquisite local dishes.

SantoriniMykonos and Corfu rank among the most popular romantic getaways in Greece but don’t forget to pay a visit to the rest of the Aegean and Ionian islands.

Set out on a journey through time and experience the sheer medieval beauty of wonderfully preserved stone-built settlements and fortified towns spread all over Greece. Be the knight or princess of your childhood fairytales in the Byzantine town of Mystras and unveil a medieval mystery in Monemvasia.

The beauty of the Cyclades islands has become a tourist attraction not only for travelers but also for people involved creatively in the culinary arts, who come here to expand their knowledge and show their love of Greek cuisine. The restaurants of the Cyclades islands occupy a prominent place in international rankings and are highly respected by devotees of haute cuisine and authentic eating experiences.


Undoubtedly the most renowned sunset in Greece is seen on Santorini Island. At dusk romantics flock to OiaFira and Imerovigli – the villages offering a breathtaking view over the caldera to Palia and Nea Kameni volcanic islands. Over the years, couples have chosen Santorini to either have their wedding ceremony or their honeymoon.

It is high time you plan your visit and let yourselves free to the energy of the volcanic landscape and the island’s unique scenery: whitewashed villages hanging on the hillside over the caldera, picturesque cobblestone alleys, houses carved into stone with built-in beds, blue-domed churches, and black, red or white sandy beaches are just some of the gems this island holds for you. Celebrate your love on Santorini and have a toast with a glass of Vinsanto over the caldera.
