Explore the Ionian Islands!
Scattered off the west coast of Greece, from Corfu in the north to Kythera in the south, the Ionian Islands are a true gem.
According to Aeschylus, father of ancient Greek drama, the Ionian Sea takes its name after Io, an Argive princess and one of the many mortal lovers of god Zeus, that used to swim in its crystal clear waters.
The Ionian Islands boast an alluring mix of superb beaches, turquoise waters, hiking trails, traditional villages, bustling towns, a delicious gastronomical tradition and plenty of history. Some, such as Corfu, have been popular destinations for decades.
