As of now, there are very few direct flights from Athens to Toronto, so I need to stop over in Europe on the way to my Greek vacation so I don't want to have to stop in Athens before flying to an island. Are there any islands I can fly to directly from Europe?
Maintaining a safe distance is really important in Greece because Greeks don't have an amazing health care system and the population is really old. I only recommend visiting Greece if you're vaccinated and planning on staying very safe, wearing your mask, and social distancing. Ikaria is a beautiful island that's very unique. It's considered a "blue zone". You can read more about it here https://www.bluezones.com/exploration/ikaria-greece/
