The Greek peninsula, Europe's south-eastern tip, occupies an area of 131944 square kilometers, and consists of mainland Greece (Attica, Peloponnese, Sterea Ellada, Thessaly, Epirus, Macedonia [Central Western, & Eastern], and Thrace) and the islands of the Aegean and Ionian seas.

Geographically, it belongs to Europe, since it forms the most southerly extremity of the Balkan Peninsula, but it has another special link to Europe through the cluster of Ionian Islands which form a chain off Greece's western shores, in the Ionian Sea.

In contrast there are numerous islands in the Aegean Sea, some isolated like Crete in the South, and some in groups like the islands of the Northeast Aegean, the Sporades, the Cyclades, and the Dodecanese.

The Cyclades consist of 39 islands of which only 24 are inhabited. The Sporades lays off the eastern shores of mainland Greece and Euboea (Evia) and retain their genuine island characteristics and unchanged local traditions.

The Dodecanese group consists of twelve major islands and a number of smaller ones, each with its own distinctive features and peculiarities. Finally, the Saronic Gulf which is the stretch of sea linking the shores of Attica to those of the Peloponnese, contains another group of small islands which adds its own color to the general surroundings.
