Hollywood stars holiday on Kos.

Hollywood superstars Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have arrived on the Greek Island of Kos on a summer holiday tour of the Mediterranean. The famous couple has chosen the Greek Islands before as the place to spend their holidays. Recently they anchored in the main harbour at Symi.

They then set off for a short stay on the island of Kos in the Dodecanese to the Gulf of Gökova.

It's not the first time that Douglas and Zeta-Jones have visited Kos which is high on their list of favourite holiday islands in Greece.

Nikos Sofos, of the Unified Tourism Board of Kos, said the couple visit the same restaurant each night during their stay on the island.

He said that last year on of the restaurant staff gave Catherine Zeta-Jones a sweet made from tomatoes and she liked it enormously.

"This year, she ordered again the same sweet again so the cook bought a whole jar from the mini-market and offered it to her," he added. Only in Greece.

The Hollywood couple are not the only ones to favour holidays in the Greek Islands. Rumours are rife that US pop icon Madonna is to holiday this summer on the Island of Ithaca.

According to recent press reports, Madonna is making plans to visit the Ionian Island for the second time. She has stayed on Ithaca before with former husband, director Guy Ritchie when the couple was considering a summer home on the island.

Many international celebrities have stayed on Ithaca over the years including Sophia Loren, Nicholas Cage, Tom Hanks, Jamie Lee Curtis and Steven Spielberg.
