It's no myth: The sales here are epic. Take one package offered exclusively by Christos Stergiou of TrueGreece: three nights each at the Petra Hotel on Patmos, Villa La Maltese (view slideshow) on Santorini, and the Blue Palace on Crete for $1,41437 percent less than the same trip would have cost last year. Or book a seven-night stay at Crete's Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites (pictured; view slideshow) through Ronnie Liadis of Liadis Travel and pay for just five. Included is a trip to Spinalonga, an uninhabited island where you can explore the remains of an old Venetian fort that was once a leper colony; the whole thing costs $2,929, 40 percent less than in 2008. Book through: Christos Stergiou (800-817-7098; email@example.com) or Ronnie Liadis of Liadis Travel (800-542-3471; firstname.lastname@example.org).
