Colorful seas, pristine beaches, lush vegetation and stunning landscapes combine with wonderful food, including plentiful fresh seafood, and delicious wines to make the Greek Islands the perfect spot for a cooking vacation with The International Kitchen. Many of the islands also contain ruins from past civilizations, making it an ideal locale for cultural and historical exploration as well.
