Trip Summary
3 nights in Athens

The Cradle of Western Civilization, the city where democracy was born and one of the world`s oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning around 3,400 years. Classical Athens was a centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato`s Academy and Aristotle`s Lyceum. The most important civilization of the ancient world flourished in Athens and relives through some of the world`s most formidable edifices. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. A walk around the famous historic triangle (Plaka, Thission, Psyri) the old neighborhoods, reveal the coexistence of different eras; old mansions, well-preserved ones and other worn down by time; luxurious department stores and small intimate shops, fancy restaurants and traditional taverns.

Recommended Stay:
At least 3 nights

Must See`s:
Acropolis, Parthenon, Temple of Nike, Hadrian`s Gate, National Archaeological Museum, Greek Ancient Art Museum, Byzantine Museum, Temple of Poseidon, The Plaka, Syntagma Square, House of Parliament and so much more!



3 nights in Mykonos Island

A whitewashed paradise in the heart of the Cyclades, famous for its sophisticated nightlife and gorgeous beaches with stunning natural beauties and picturesque villages plus the historic treasures of nearby Delos. It is a place where celebrities, college students and families mingle together to celebrate the Greek summer. Mykonos is a top European summer destination, offering magnificent beaches and scuba diving centers. The nightlife is an essential Mykonian attraction, made of famous clubs and taverns, like the beach bars of Paradise and Paranga.

Recommended Stay:
At least 3 nights

Must See`s:
The fantastic beaches on the south, the sunset from Little Venice, the view from the windmills and a night out in Mykonos Town.



3 nights in Santorini Island

Santorini is considered to be the most sought after place for a romantic getaway in Greece, since there are not many places in the world where you can enjoy exquisitely clear waters while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea! Fira, the picturesque capital of the island, is perched high up on the edge of the Caldera, looking like a marvelous painting. Some of the villages are cosmopolitan some more peaceful; they are surrounded by vast vineyards; whitewashed cliff-top towns with castles affording amazing views out over the Aegean. Soaking up the villages` distinctive traditional atmosphere is a very rewarding experience. A real wonder of Santorini is the town of Akrotiri, covered by lava, but incredibly preserved under it.

Recommended Stay:
At least 3 nights

Must See`s:
Fira, Oia, Immerovigli and other charming villages, Beaches, Akrotiri Archaeological Site, Monasteries and Churches, Caldera, and much more.



3 nights in Crete Island - Heraklion

Founded in 824 AD by an Arabic Muslim people, Heraklion is home to the world's only comprehensive collection of Minoan artifacts. It has magnificent fortified walls and several other testimonies to the Venetians' time of power. Heraklion is close to the ruins of the palace of Knossos, which in Minoan times was the biggest centre of population on Crete. Home to Crete's largest city, Heraklion, as well as immense ruins scattered throughout the region, this prefecture draws attention from history lovers and young travelers looking for the island's nightlife.

Recommended Stay:
At least 3 nights

Must See`s:
Minoan Palaces of Knossos and Phaistos Palace, archaeological site of Gortyn, Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Cretaquarium, Fortress of Koules, The Caves of Matala, lovely beaches and charming villages.

Package Map Picture
Greece

Greece is THE land of ancient sites and architectural treasures: the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, the reconstructed palace at Knossos, the belly button of the cosmos at Delphi, fallen columns galore on the sacred island of Delos, and frescoed Minoan palaces on Crete. But don't expect a visit there to be a sober study of the ancient world, the Greek propensity for partying dates back to Dionysus. Then there are 1400 islands to explore. Greece is much more than what you were taught at school or the predictable summer image of glorious sunsets and sandy beaches.
