In every Greek landscape…the light is the protagonist-hero. The mountains, the valley and the sea form the arena in which he struggles, or the couch on which he reposes. The mountains, the valley, the sea play a secondary role.Nikos Kazantzakis
Greece is strategically positioned at the crossroads between the three continents of Europe, Asia and Africa, right in the heart of the Mediterranean. It consists of a peninsular mainland surrounded on three sides by the Ionian Sea in the west and the Aegean Sea in the east, featuring a total of up to 6000 islands and islets, grouped in the Cyclades (including Santorini and Mykonos), the Dodecanese (including Rhodes), the Ionian islands (including Corfu) and the isle of Crete.
