The first thing that comes to most people mind when hearing the words “Greek Islands”, is sun, sea and sand. Many forget the beautiful and interesting archaeological monuments, historical monuments and nature that can be found off the Greek coastline.
Starting with the Island of Milos, there are many things to see and do, especially if you choose to venture in to the Islands capital, Plaka. Plaka is home to a fantastic archaeological museum, where you can find ancient artifacts and pictures. There is also the Virgin Mary’s church that can be visited, which is situated in a magnificent position, with great views.
Whilst it is easy to automatically associate the Greek Islands with sandy beaches and shimmering seas, there are many towns and cities away from the coast, which offer a wealth of history, culture and entertainment and you will be spoilt for choice with the intensity of their beauty as well as their historic heritage and cultural ambiance.
