The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece! / Where burning Sappho loved and sung,
Where grew the arts of war and peace, / Where Delos rose, and Phoebus sprung!
Eternal summer gilds them yet, / But all, except their sun, is set.
- Lord Byron
CORFU, Greece – She went for love and stayed for the beaches, the food, and the intoxicating spirit of the little island on Greece's less-traveled coast.
THE AEGEAN SEA – So many islands, so few vacation days. It's okay, wanderer: We have the easy lowdown to sort Agkistris from Ikaria, Skiathos from Santorini. Come on in. The water's beautiful.
MYKONOS – Mykonos has lots of Ibiza-type beaches if you want a thumping music scene. But I prefer the bohemian strips of sand that pepper the island. Like Fokos. Bathing suit optional.
