Trip Summary
3 nights in Athens

Athens captures the heart of its visitors. It`s the capital city, vibrant in nature, exciting and exasperating, worldly and chic, a city that attacks the senses. It boasts art, culture, world-class museums, charming neighborhoods, exceptional food, lively people and glorious ancient gems such as the Acropolis and the iconic Parthenon. This city has a lot to offer and we promise you, it won`t disappoint.

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 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, charming villages and so much more!


3 nights in Crete Island - Chania

Chania is a delightful town nestled between mountains and sea. It has a unique charm since the Venetians and Turks effectively stamped the old town in their own image. Its Old Town is considered the most beautiful urban district on Crete. The heart of the touristic activities in the area is the main square of the Old Town. The Topanas area is very picturesque, with many narrow alleys and old charming buildings, some of which have been restored as hotels, restaurants, shops and bars.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
The Old Town, The Venetian Lighthouse and Port, The Castle of Gramvoussa, The Public Baths (Hammams), Gorge of Samaria, The Monastery of Panagia Chrissoskalitissa, The Fortress of Frangokastello, beautiful beaches, charming villages and so much more!

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.
