Mykonos and SantoriniContenders for the chicest destinations on the planet, and possibly most Instagrammed, these Greek islands are the place to be. We recommend a short break so that you can push the boat out on a luxurious 5-star stay. Visit Mykonos for the beaches, shopping and party scene. Visit Santorini for romance, ancient ruins, the sunsets. Better still, visit them both.
