Patmos Island, Greece:
Few places on earth can match the extraordinary combination of features that draw people to the island of Patmos. Here is one of the best-kept secrets of international tourism: an island increasingly sought out by sophisticated travelers in search of a truly restful holiday. Patmos' main village, Hora, is one of the most picturesque villages of the Aegean and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while the neighboring tiny islands offer magical spots for a day cruise that will enchant even the most demanding visitor.
It is certainly no accident that in 2009 Patmos was ranked by Forbes Magazine as the #1 Most Idyllic Place to Live in Europe, or that in the same year Patmos was featured in New York Times' T-Magazine's cover, receiving raving reviews in the magazine's feature story! The Monastery of St. John and the Cave of the Apocalypse are only part of the reason that the island is arguably one of the most spiritual locales in all of Greece. Whether because of its location off the main tourist routes or its preservation of traditional ways of life, Patmos exudes a special serenity that will appeal to people no matter what their spiritual leanings.
