Greece is indeed the cradle of western civilization, its golden age being more than 2,500 years ago, and in some areas of the
mainland (the Peloponnese, for example) it can appear to be little changed.
But, Athens apart, it is the islands which are the biggest draw for holiday-makers – more than 100 are inhabited and they range
from Crete (the largest) to tiny ones with no airport such as Skopelos and Ithaca which have to be reached by ferry.
There is something quite uncanny about the Greek islands: the cares of home just drop away and one is instantly on holiday – long lunches beside the harbour, tiny tavernas in remote villages, small boats for hire in which to search for your very own beach, and a glass of ouzo to accompany the sunset.
