An endless expanse of shimmering waters coupled with unparalleled Greek hospitality awaits visitors to the islands of the Aegean. Each island is home to a unique spirit and mythology. From Patmos (a favorite spot of the Aga Khan) to Hydra (which captivated Henry Miller, Leonard Cohen and Sophia Loren), the islands are imbued with an alluring sense of history, tradition and adventure. Several films have been shot on them over the decades, including Boy on a Dolphin (1957) on Hydra, The Big Blue (1988) on Amorgos and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005) on Santorini. The ancient ruins, cliff-top monasteries and volcanic rims have been a source of inspiration for millennia and are not to be missed.
