Greece has the longest coastline in Europe and is the southernmost country in Europe. The mainland has rugged mountains, forests, and lakes, but the country is well known for the thousands of islands dotting the blue Aegean Sea to the east, the Mediterranean Sea to the south, and the Ionian Sea to the west.
All time favorite island in Greece is Santorini. If you can only make visit one island make it Santorini.

It’s known for the Palace of Knossos, just outside the city.
