The Aegean Islands are located in the Aegean Sea, between the south and east side of mainland Greece and the west side of Turkey.
The vast area covered by the Aegean Islands includes the Cyclades, the Dodecanese Islands, the North Aegean Islands, the Saronic Islands, Sporades, Crete and the Ionian Islands and Euboea. The island group includes some of the most popular holiday destinations including Crete, Lemnos, Lesbos, Chios, Samos and Rhodes.
The Aegean Islands are often seen as the main characteristic of the Greek culture and tradition. In addition to the obvious appeal of the sun and the sand, visitors are attracted to the traditional villages of whitewashed houses, as well as to the impressive monuments of the great prehistoric civilization that flourished here.
Ferries are the primary method of travel around the islands and provide a convenient mode of transport to get you in to and around the region.
Turkey is on the Mediterranean in Western Asia, with a small section in Southeastern Europe, with the Mediterranean Sea on the Southwest, the Aegean Sea on the West and the Black Sea on the North.
As the cradle of cultures and civilisations connecting Europe and Asia, Turkey is well known to have accumulated a large cultural heritage of historic sites and archaeological wonders. However, apart from the historical relics, there’s much more to be admired, from its soaring mountains and fertile valleys, to its sleepy villages and white sand beaches, all as part of the Turkish legacy.
