A bridge between Europe and the East
The Dodecanese translates as “the twelve islands”, a cluster of twelve islands in the southeastern edge of the Aegean, jewels decorating the big blue sea. The Dodecanese form a bridge between Europe and the East and everywhere you’ll see traces of peoples and cultures that made their mark over the centuries: Ionians, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, Ottomans and Italians. Each island has a character all its own and all offer a plethora of opportunities for relaxation, sightseeing, adventures and gastronomical pleasure – with a backdrop of stunningly beautiful beaches.
Whether travelling with your children, your sweetheart or a big group of friends, you’ll find the island that’s right for you. Some are extremely popular, like Rhodes and Kos, and others have a virgin charm, like Kalymnos, Symi, volcanic Nisyros, Kastelorizo and Kasos, Karpathos, Astypalea, Halki, and Lipsi. And then there’s Patmos, a sui generis destination, famous as the holy island of the St John’s Book of Revelation, the ‘Jerusalem of the Aegean’.
The journey begins: set sail for the Dodecanese, discover these islands’ beaches and cultures. They will never cease to surprise you. Your holidays here will be a montage of beautiful imagery and exciting, unforgettable experiences.
