Trip Summary
3 nights in Skopje

Skopje is the capital and largest city of North Macedonia. This vibrant city is one of the oldest in the Balkans, having been settled for six millennia, but its glittering appearance is much newer. Much of Skopje was master-planned after a devastating 1963 earthquake, with green spaces and wide avenues placed at high priorities. The classical feel to the areas along the banks of the Vardar River and Macedonia Square are a result of a beautification campaign completed in 2014.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Vardar River, Macedonia Square, Skopje Fortress, Old Bazaar, Matka Canyon, Stone Bridge, Millennium Cross, Memorial House of Mother Teresa, Museum of Macedonia, Museum of the City of Skopje, Museum of the Macedonian Struggle, Macedonia Gate, and so much more!



3 nights in Istanbul

Istanbul is one of the truly great romantic cities. Istanbul is home to a layering of civilization on civilization, of empire built on empire. A stroll through this historic city will reveal ancient Roman hippodromes, peristyles, and aqueducts, the greatest excesses of the Byzantine Empire and the mystique and power of the Ottoman Empire. In this sprawling, continent-spanning city you can tramp the streets where crusaders and janissaries once marched; admire mosques that are the most sublime architectural expressions of Islamic piety; peer into the sultan's harem; and hunt for bargains in the Kapali Çarsi.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Ayasofya,Topkapi Palace, Dolmabahce Palace, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and the Egyptian Spice Bazaar, Suleymaniye Camii, St. Savior in Chora, the New Mosque, Galata Tower, Taksim Square, the Hippodrome and so much more!



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!

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.
Turkey

Apart from Russia, no other country can stake such a proud claim to bridging `the East and the West` like Turkey, which sits astride two continents. It is called the `Cradle of Civilization`, where there are more Roman archaeological sites than in all of Italy, and more ancient Greek ruins available for viewing by the public than in Greece. The history from the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans, and finally the modern Turkish nation are all on display here, and the Turkish vacation experience can encompass everything from being in the hustle and bustle of a metropolis, to attending a whirling dervish dance ceremony, to sunning yourself on the country`s beautiful shores, to climbing mountains and skiing at top resorts, to enjoying an iconic hot-air balloon ride over the Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia.
Macedonia

<b>Macedonia,</b> formerly known as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), is known for its long and eventful history, stretching back to the Bronze Age. It is known for its strong religious tradition, and there are hundreds of picturesque Orthodox cathedrals and mosques that are each distinctly beautiful. North Macedonia is known as having an underrated food culture, with an emphasis on farm-to-table cuisine and fresh produce. For as small as North Macedonia is compared to its Balkan neighbors, the geography is surprisingly varied here, home to Europe`s two oldest lakes and over 50 mountains higher than 6,000 feet.
