Hi We Lived on Corfu Island for 15 years until my late wife became very ill and we had to return to England for specialist treatment. what a wonderful place to be at Easter all the lovely spring flowers and so many celebrations, it is without a doubt the place which you should visit . these links will show you some of the celebrations.
https://niakas.com/tours/corfu-easter/ and https://www.corfutoday.com/christmas.htm Ágios Stéfanos (San Stefanos) is a wonderful place to stop very quiet and laid back. if you would like some more information please message me.

Trust that this helps.

As Les has already said both are very beautiful in their own ways, Easter with the island in full bloom in Mykonos where we lived for many years,the atmosphere is full of joy and happiness,the Monastery in my village Ano Mera is something else,the festivities,on the water front there are Greek Dancers....I have posted a video on Mykonos forum, have a look and you will see what I mean..

My favorite month t go to Greece is October! It's warm (80s) and very pleasant. A nice contrast to my life here in New England. Leaves turning, cooler days... The island of Crete is especially great. I was in Crete last week of October once and had beach weather every day. The crowds are diminished, but there are still enough people around to make things feel lively. I have never been at Easter or Christmas...

Easter time is magical and that Spring time feeling after the winter, islands full of flowers,not seen again after the hot weather, people in jovial moods, celebrations every where, workers returning to begin the busy summer season, making new friends, sharing experiences, some just graduated.... had many young University students coming to do their summer tourism training with us... 😅😅.....ferries and ships commencing the summer schedule, people painting and decorating their houses, plenty to talk about after the winter months... churches preparing to welcome the worshippers to the masses,the unforgettable scent from the Churches which linger on in the streets,a reminder of all is well and let the celebrations and festivities begin!❤️❤️Dox oto Theo!🙏🙏🇬🇷🇬🇷

Good Wedding Destinations in Greece?

I am not Greek, but I love the country. I am looking at it as a potential wedding destination. Does anyone have any advice? I have no idea where to start. Someone said to find a wedding planner in Greece. Also, I am not 100% sure on the destination but I have narrowed it down to the following places:

1. Milos
2. Crete
3. Santorini
4. Mykonos

Any advice that you have for me would be great. I am excited for this chapter in my life, but I have no idea where to start. I would think that I need to find a destination before I hire a wedding coordinator?

Tourism One of Three Drivers of the Greek Economy!

An integral and integrated part of Greek economy..... just hope they formulate legislative framework and mandatory fair pay/play for all the employees in Tourism Industry.

Best Photo Spots in Greece?

I am a photographer and I love to travel to Greece to take photos. I am scheduled to travel there again this fall, and I thought I would make a list of some places to visit. I am also wondering if you guys have any recommendations! Here is what I have come up with - chime in with some suggestions, too - I will be in Greece for at least a few weeks:

1. Temple of Poseidon - Cape Sounion (I hear there are great sunset shots here)
2. Oia, Santorini at sunset - I haven't sorted out quite where in the village yet butI figured I'd figure that out when I get there
3. Chania, Crete (I need some from here for my collection)
4. Slice of life types of photos in Athens and other cities
5. Plenty of food photos all over Greece

Let me know if you have some standout places/ types of photos I should take.

Fun Museums to Visit in Thessaloniki

I love Thessaloniki. There's also so much history! These museums I can visit over and over again. Those of you who know a lot about this city - please leave your tip choices! I always enjoy trying new things:

1. Archeological Museum
2. War Museum
3. Thessaloniki Museum of Photography (such talent on display!)
4. Byzantine Culture Museum

Aside from that, always love being near the White Tower - it's such a classic, iconic landmark.

ForwardKeys: Summer 2022 Record Breaking for Flights to Greece!

Tremendous effort by all concerned,I sincerely hope that Greek Tourism Authorities and Greek Government as PM Mitsotakis has already stated to pay the workers in Tourism Industry fairly and treat them humanely!
