Insider tip in the Aegean Sea: Astypalea
Seen from above, Astypalea looks just like a butterfly that has landed on the blue Aegean waters. The little island jewel has kept its authentic charm to this day: Among innumerable beaches, the crystal clear water, bright white lanes and red windmill roofs, visitors will soon become one with the relaxed Greek island routine.

Ancient Mycenae
Mycenae is a town steeped in history and legend. When Heinrich Schliemann began excavating an acropolis site here in 1876, he discovered 13 kilos of golden treasure, including Agamemnon’s alleged death mask. The monumental Lion Gate, the Cyclopean masonry and the Treasury of Atreus are what make Mycenae one of the most important archaeological sites in modern-day Greece.

3,000-year-old place of longing: Nauplion
Its three fortresses and the architectural diversity of its old town show how extensively Nauplion was fought over in ancient times. Founded by Poseidon’s son Nauplios, according to legend, in the course of history the harbour town was captured by Byzantines, Venetians and Turks. At one time, it was the Greek capital and residence of Otto of Greece, a Bavarian prince.
