Bring your island travel stories to this Watch and Share session. We will watch short clips of Rick Steves' travels through European islands and then spend most of the hour discussing our stories.
This week we will cover the Greek Isles of Santorini and Rhodes:
Santorini is the Greek isle of your dreams. When its volcano blew, it left just the flooded caldera (crater). Today whitewashed towns cling to the ring of cliffs, entertaining hordes of tourists with black sand beaches, romantic restaurants, and jaw-dropping views.
Rhodes, the most fortified of the Greek isles, was one of the great cities of antiquity and a powerful crusader fort — home of the Knights of St. John. Visitors can stroll past 500-year-old cannon balls, browse Turkish markets, and enjoy a romantic, white-sand beach.
