Greece in the top 10 holiday destinations for May

May is one of Conde Nast Traveller’s team favourite month for travelling due to the distinct chime of summer in the air. Temperatures in Europe are in the 20s. Though it is not yet high season so you avoid the miles of traffic, high prices and crowded beaches. Thus Conde Nast published a list with the top 10 destinations ideal for travelling in May.

1. Dodecanese Islands, Greece

Think of Greece and think of whitewashed stone villages illuminated against the blue Aegean, crumbling Greek ruins and tiny little fishing villages. The Dodecanese islands, a chain of 12 larger islands (Rhodes is the best known of them) and lots of little ones, are all these clichés and more. For a real taste of Greek life, the volcanic island of Nisyros is wonderfully welcoming and a haven for artists. Symi, half an hour from the Turkish coast, has Michelin stars and is glamorously old school, Kastellorizo inspired the likes of Pink Floyd and Patmos has incredible Byzantine architecture
