Stars opt for Greek holidays.

The Greek Islands have attracted a long list of A-list celebrities on their holiday this summer. Movie stars, sports personalities, models and TV celebrities chose the Greek Island for their summer holidays in 2013. And many of them shared their impressions of the island beaches with their fans through social media sites.

Actor Russell Crowe tweeted: "I cannot understand how I lived 49 years on this planet and had never visited the Greek islands" after a visit to Mykonos.

Mykonos also welcomed model Naomi Campbell, actor Christopher Lambert and former basketball star Michael Jordan this year.

The Kardashians arrived on Mykonos in numbers to film shots for their TV reality show 'Keeping up with the Kardashians'.

Singer Madonna was spotted on the Greek island of Ithaca, not for the first time, while Hollywood A-lister Tom Hanks, along with his Greek wife Rita Wilson, has made his second home on the island of Antiparos.

Neighbouring Paros was the Greek island of choice for Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio while Sarah Jessica Parker opted for the beaches of Kefalonia.

Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford has been back to Syros in the Cyclades while soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo spent several days in the popular resort of Elounda on Crete.

Superstars Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones sailed their yacht into Kos and Symi this year while on a summer cruise of the Mediterranean.

Hydra was the choice of fashion designer Valentino where he stayed with partner Giancarlo Giammetti and fashion blogger model Olivia Palermo.

Hydra is where the fashion photographer, Juergen Teller, has bought his own house while fashion superstar Giorgio Armani sailed from the island of Patmos to spend his holidays cruising the Aegean while fashion rival Tommy Hilfiger chose the island of Skiathos for his Greek Island summer holidays this year.
