Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Athens!

Accommodation: Polis Grand Hotel; Titania; President Hotel Athens; Athens Avenue Hotel; The Stanley Hotel

Welcome to Greece! Upon arrival at Athens International Airport, you’ll make your own way to your hotel. Upon check-in, you will receive all of your needed documentation/tickets for your trip. The remainder of your day is at leisure for your first taste of Athens. Discover Plaka, the oldest district of Athens, located under the Acropolis - and the only district where visitors may see the Greek capital as it was 100 years ago. Or, enjoy shopping on the renowned Ermou, Kolonaki and Voukourestiou streets.

Day 2: Athens

After breakfast, you will have the full day at leisure to explore Athens! You might want to visit the famous Acropolis today; marvel at the architectural masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens, the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and finally the famous Parthenon. We also suggest a visit to the Acropolis Museum, a modern architectural building where, at last, the statues have found their home, and admire the wonders and architectural masterpieces of the classical era.

Day 3: Athens – Mykonos

Accommodation: Hotel Kamari; Pelican Bay Art Hotel; Hotel Vanilla; San Marco Hotel Mykonos; Alkistis Hotel Mykonos; Manoulas Beach Resort Hotel; Mykonos Beach Hotel; Madalena Hotel; Rhenia Mykonos Hotel; Hotel Erato

After an early morning breakfast you’ll make your way to the port of Athens for the high-speed ferry to Mykonos (approximately 2.5 hours). Make your way to your hotel and enjoy the remainder of your day at leisure to discover the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos.

Delight in the picturesque sandy beaches, bright blue skies and whitewashed Cycladic architecture of this beautiful island!

Day 4: Mykonos

Enjoy a day at leisure on the beloved Island of the international “Jet-Setters” with its whitewashed cubic houses, windmills and chapels, the wonderful sandy beaches, shops, galleries and the incredible night life. Explore the towns’ winding narrow streets, visit Paraportiani, one of the many churches on the Island, or enjoy a drink at little Venice.

Day 5: Mykonos – Santorini

Accommodation: Albatros Hotel; Goulielmos Hotel; Star Hotel Santorini; Astir Thira Hotel; Hotel Sunrise; New Haroula; Kamari Beach Hotel; Milos Villas Hotel

Enjoy breakfast and a free morning, before making your way to the port of Mykonos for your ferry to Santorini (depart 10:00am, arrive 11:55am).

Upon arrival in Santorini, make your way to your hotel for check-in. The remainder of your day will be at leisure to admire the spectacular Caldera with white-washed houses perched on the edge, created by the eruption of the island’s volcano in the ancient times. Overnight for the first of two nights at the Hotel Albatros or similar.

Day 6: Santorini

After your breakfast, enjoy a day at leisure to relax, or explore the volcanic island of Santorini – known worldwide as the most romantic island! Do not miss visiting the traditional village of Oia, the most photographed place in Greece, best known for its breathtaking sunsets. Small white houses tier the hillside, interspersed by splashes of rich okra, deep fuchsia, cobalt blue, oyster pink and earthy red – making Oia a magical place. It’s a nightly tradition for residents and visitors to gather at the end of the village to watch the spectacular sunset – and chances are you’ll enjoy it so much, you’ll be back again the next night!

Day 7: Santorini – Athens

Accommodation: Polis Grand Hotel; Titania; President Hotel Athens; Athens Avenue Hotel; The Stanley Hotel

Enjoy another day at leisure before your last high-speed ferry back to Athens (apx. 5 hours). Make your way to your hotel for your final night in Greece.

Day 8: Depart Athens
