The island complex of Dodecanese in south-eastern Aegean is the sunniest corner in Greece. The name Dodecanese actually means twelve islands in Greek, as this is the number of the largest islands of the complex.
Twelve large islands and numerous smaller ones with crystal clear waters, sandy or pebbly beaches, important archaeological finds, imposing Byzantine and medieval monuments and unique traditional settlements are waiting to be discovered. If you are desperately seeking to discover lesser-known, unspoiled destinations visit Leros or Pserimos. But there is always Rhodes and Kos, larger and more cosmopolitan islands awaiting to offer you strong, and treasured memories.
Located on the south eastern side of the Aegean Sea, the island group of Dodecanese, in Greece, are getting very popular for summer holidays. Due to the long Venetian occupation, these islands have a strong Medieval style and many interesting monuments.
