Day 1: Arrive in Athens

Upon arrival at the Athens airport, we’ll be welcomed to Greece by our local guides and transfer to our first hotel of the trip.

Accomodation: Electra Palace

Day 2: The Acropolis

Enjoy a full day discovering the rich heritage of Greece’s capital with your expert guide. This morning’s tour introduces you to the complex of monuments that most symbolize Athens: The Acropolis. The highlight of your tour to the Acropolis is the Parthenon, one of the most important ancient monuments in the Western world.

Accomodation: Electra Palace

Day 3: Delphi

We’ll leave Athens to discover Delphi, an enchanting site that was once regarded as the center of the world. The visible ruins belong to the last temple, dated to the fourth century BC. We’ll also see the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of Apollo, and the amphitheater where the Pythian Games were celebrated in antiquity.

On our return journey to Athens, we’ll stop near the village of Distomo to admire the architecture and mosaics of Osios Loukas Monastery, which is still inhabited. The monastery lies on the west slope of Mount Helikon, below the acropolis of ancient Steirion, and the views are something to behold!

Accomodation: Electra Palace

Day 4: Athens to Santorini

Depending on the flight time today, you can take the morning to explore Athens a bit on your own then it’s off to the airport for our flight to Santorini.

Accomodation: Vedema Resort

Day 5: Fira

We’ll head for Fira this morning on our half-day excursion to soak up the town’s vibrant atmosphere and take the opportunity to photograph the spectacular views over the multi-colored cliffs.

After a short stroll in Fira, we’ll drive north to Oia. Known for being the most picturesque town in Santorini, gaze at the beautiful, white-washed houses sculpted from the rocky clifftops, its windmills and caves perched up on the very edge of the precipice.

We’ll wrap up the day with a visit to one of the three best wineries on the island and some of the oldest vineyards in the world.

Accomodation: Vedema Resort

Day 6: Akrotiri

Together with our expert local guide, we’ll explore the impressive Akrotiri excavation site, a town that was buried by a widespread Theran eruption and subsequently preserved under a thick layer of volcanic ash.

To some, this significant archaeological site is a fascinating Minoan center of commerce; to others, it’s a Greek version of Pompeii, but true romantics believe it to be the legendary lost city of Atlantis.

Accomodation: Vedema Resort

Day 7: Santorini to Mykonos

From Santorini, we’ll board a ferry to Mykonos, a cosmopolitan island of whitewashed houses, little chapels, a gorgeous blue sea, and beautiful beaches.

Mykonos town has an array of unique bars and restaurants but finding them, amongst the narrow winding streets, can be a challenge! Our guide will escort us this evening to help us to navigate the labyrinth of cobbled alleys and find restaurants, boutiques, and jewelry stores.

Accomodation: Petasos Resort & Spa
