Where the Royals Vacation

Spetses, Greece

Poseidonion Grand Hotel

Spetses, Greece
Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark

Though Greece has a strong democratic tradition, it is rich with tales of royal travel dating back to Homer. (The very first travel book ever written was in Greek.) Today, the islands of the Aegean and Ionian seas provide an aqua-blue backdrop for any majestic retreat. Spetses, summer home to the deposed Greek royal family, recently hosted the wedding of HRH Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark. A who’s who of European royalty gathered for the festivities at the Poseidonion Grand. (Doubles from $311.) —Sarah Rose
