Greece Hotels Learn the Secrets of the Ancient Islands

Ancient Greece gave many things to the modern world including the foundations of mathematics and the sciences. Holidaymakers visiting the mainland or the islands will also discover that Greece continues to surprise and confound modern scientists and archaeologists with more recent findings. Tourists staying in Greece hotels can visit the capital, Athens to see some of the artefacts that have been recovered from the Dokos Shipwreck, the oldest known shipwreck in the world dating back past 2500BC. Due to its age many artefacts perished but divers did manage to recover many ceramic containers from the wreckage. The Antikythera wreck is probably the most fruitful discovery of them all and again most of the treasures were taken to Athens after being discovered. Among them were some excellent marbles and also priceless bronze statues like the Philosophers head. However the Antikythera mechanism is its best artefact. The mechanical device is as sophisticated as a mechanical watch made by the Swiss masters of early modernity and scientists believe it was an accurate way of mapping celestial bodies for navigating the oceans or some similar purpose. Holidaymakers visiting Crete, the largest Greek island can see artefacts recovered from La Therese, a French Navy vessel that sank late in the 17th century after an on board explosion. The largest Greek island has a very long history so holidaymakers have a good choice of cultural visits, beaches and inland hikes to choose from. The ruins of the Royal Palace at Knosos are interesting and should precede a trip to the Irakleio museum where holidaymakers can learn more about the ancient Minoans through their artefacts and the other wonders they built on the island. Bodrum hotels on Turkey’s Aegean coast are also popular for holidaymakers who enjoy the Greek islands as they are often close to or on the coast and have excellent views of both Kos and Rhodes. Holidaymakers staying in Bodrum have a pick of excellent beaches to choose from and can visit the historical old city for a memorable excursion looking through artefacts left behind by the ancients. The imposing Castle of St John is Bodrum’s most popular visitor attraction and houses a wonderful maritime museum full of artefacts of all shapes and sizes that have been salvaged from the Aegean and Mediterranean seabeds. The artefacts include glassware dating back to the first century BC and ceramics from the same and later periods. The museums most interesting collections are the shipwrecks, some of which are Bronze Age. There are also Byzantine shipwrecks in the museum’s Glass shipwreck hall. For holidaymakers that want to have a look at the ceramics and other vessels that were used to transport foods and liquids the Amphora exhibit is a very comprehensive collection. The Castle of St John is a very good if slightly unexpected treat for holidaymakers staying in Bodrum and Gumbet hotels.

Kenya Safaris Verses Zanzibar Islands

Its become evident that when holiday seekers travel to Kenya for a safari experience they will eventually end up in Zanzibar to wrap up the Africa safari experience.

We all know a little too much about Kenya Safaris and the countries amazing diversity. Now lets just focus more on Zanzibar Island.

Zanzibar is considered to be part of the greater Tanzania, through ruled and governed by its own people.

The name Zanzibar is derived from a combination of two Arabic words, Zinj, meaning black, and barr being the Arabic word for land, resulting in the ancient title Land of the Blacks. As Zanzibar absorbed peoples from as far as the Orient and Iberia, Assyria and India, so the tapestry of its expression.

Zanzibar Island being the birthplace of Swahili, a lingua franca forged from global dialects, upon which legends were carried, trade routes opened and a Sultan Empire prospered there.

Zanzibar Island has a rich history with many invasions through the centuries. In the middle of the 19th century under the Omani Arabs the Island was the most important trading port on the East Africa, long before Kenya started safaris.

The strident laments and exultant overtures of Swahili taarab were born, their rhythms and melodies carried and honed between Zanzibar and the Arabian Gulf until they became the sounds of Zanzibars own musical narrative.

The architectural styles of the main town in Zanzibar Stone Town were born of the social convergence, while the tangled mass of stories, woven from centuries of lives lived, bestow a folklore and legacy that permeate life on the archipelago.

The Stone Town of Zanzibar is a fascinating warren of narrow streets, overhanging balconies and huge intricately carved doors. The bustling Suk where traders frantically bargain, is full of the pungent perfume of exotic spices.

The Old Stone town was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO for more than a decade now. Lamu Island in Kenya is also one of the islands that hold this prestigious title.

In order to protect the towns the governments has established the Stone town Conservation Authorities to enforce this.

Both Islands do really compete for the holiday makers looking for unexploited beaches and culture after Kenya safaris.

The stone town offers real value tours that start from the main city market, which was opened in 1904, you will get a comprehensive view of the Stone town architecture, its sand and stone ancient built houses, some of them have Arab inscriptions with carved doors with brass studs, carved balconies. You will also get the chance to see the old post office.

A good guide will then take you to the Anglican Cathedral of Christ, which was built by Bishop Steers in 1873 on the site of the Old slave market.

From here you will continue and tour the Sultans Palace Museum, House of Wonders (Beit-el-ajaib) built in 1883 and bombarded by British fleet in 1886, next to this you will see the Old Arab Fort, built in 1700.
