Exploring the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea in spring is one of the most rewarding travel experiences, when the fabled islands become a vast natural garden. Greece is home to a stunning number of plant species, comprising the richest flora in Europe. Just the island of Crete is home to over 2,200 species, of which a large number are endemic. Greece is also the land that, in the 4th century BC, gave birth to the science of botany. The ancient Athenians planted the Agora, the city’s civic and commercial center, with trees and plants and created leisure parks, considered to be the first public gardens in Europe.
