11 Shots Media

Contributor 11 Shots Media created this brilliant 60 second aerial tour of three of Greece's islands in the Ionian Sea to the west of the mainland.  The islands shown in are Lefkada, Ithaki, and Kevalonia.  These are the central islands of the group, which also includes Corfu, Paxi, Zakynthos, and Kythira.  As you'ss see in this video, these islands combine aspects of Greece's Aegean islands to the east with those of Italy to the west; in large measure, this reflects the period during which the Ionian Islands were under Venetian control.

In this video, contributor Icarus Aerial Filming gives us a spectacular bird's eye view of the area around Mt. Athos in northern Greece.  In addition to being home to some of the most important Eastern Orthodox monasteries, the fabled mountain (often referred to as the Holy Mountain) was the site of one of the great bits of luck enjoyed by the Greeks in the Antiquity - the foundering of a Persian fleet off the coast of Athos in 492 BC forestalled an imminent Persian naval invasion of the Greek mainland.
