View Tom Dempsey's favorite images of Greece (in Europe): Enjoy whitewashed villages perched high above the Aegean Sea (part of the Mediterranean Sea) on the rim of the active volcano of Santorini island (Thira or Thera). Hike in Zagori, Vikos Gorge, Tymfi Massif, and the north Pindus mountains. See a triple arch stone bridge near Kipi. Admire icons of ancient Greece at the Acropolis (Parthenon, Erechtheion) and museums in Athens. The medieval Greek Orthodox Monasteries of Meteora have stood the tests of time perched atop impressive pinnacles. On the island of Crete, learn Minoan history at Knossos, hike Samaria Gorge, and enjoy wild aromatic herb gardens on the coast.
