Wildly Inspriring galleries from all over Greece come with the warning:

Particular images of Greece haunt our dreams and melt into our psyches. The myriad forms and colours across the whole country astoud our senses. 

Eternal Greek landscapes and icons...

Greek cats take our imagination - their feline form becoming synonymous with the white-washed walls or the taverna tables...the high walls of Santorini or the seaside bars of Mykonos...

These images remind of us the fresh breezes of the sea, endless sun, and the promise of a tasty feast with fun company, maybe some Greek seafood; fresh fish and grilled octopus.

Crete - Iraklion

Below are some of our favourite photos of Iraklion Town. Iraklion is the capital of the island, a very busy commercial centre, with an international airport, it is located on the north coast in the centre of the island. It is a town of contrasts and new discoveries.

Below are our favourite images from Chania town. Chania was the capital of Kriti until 1913, and has always been an important trade centre. Its stunning Venetian harbour and old quarter enchant visitors and locals alike.

Below are some of our favourite images from Rethymnon town. With her charismatic old town of narrow streets, Venetian architecture and the tiny old harbour lined with restaurants, to the fortezza on top of the hill, Rethymnon has many different faces to explore.

Below are some of our favourite images of Agios Nikolaos. A charismatic town in the east of Crete, with a lake and channel near the large harbour and surrounded by beaches, this town is a delight to explore.
