Trip Summary
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.

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, charming villages and so much more!


3 nights in Kos Island

Birthplace of Hippocrates, green and lush with lovely beaches, pretty villages, fascinating archaeological sites and a great nightlife, Kos Island sits in the middle of the Dodecanese chain of Greek islands that hug the Turkish coastline between Rhodes in the south and Patmos in the north just 3 nautical miles from Asia Minor coast. Kos is long and thin, about 28 miles by 7 miles and it is mostly flat and low-lying, especially in the north and west. The lack of hills has helped to make cycling very popular and there is no end of bicycle rental outlets and even some dedicated cycling roads between the big hotels. The capital is also called Kos and it's both an historical and modern town - with many archaeological sites opened in the streets and many resorts along the coasts.

Recommended Stay:
3 nights

Must See`s:
The sanctuary of Asclepios (Asclepieion), Roman Odeon of Kos, Casa Romana, Church of St. John the Baptist, The Castle of Antimachia, Castle and Old Town of Pyli, The cave of White Stone, Temple of Hercules, Ancient Agora, Castle of Neratzia, Charming villages and glorious beaches.



3 nights in Rhodes Island

The largest and most popular island of Dodecanese, with 300 days of sunshine per year, its Old Town (among the best-preserved Medieval Towns of Europe with the Street of the Knights, the Palace and Hippocrates Square, strong walls, paved paths and elegant stone mansions). A true gem to walk around and be transported to times past! Offering the cleanest Aegean beaches and splendid natural spots with rich flora and fauna in the inhabited mountains; specifically beautiful are the butterflies - tiger moths. High points offering nice views are the acropolis in Lindos and the Mount Attavyros.

Recommended Stay:
3 nights

Must See`s:
The Palace of Grand Masters, Ancient Lindos, The Monastery of Filerimos, Acropolis of Rhodes, The Aquarium, The Archaeological Museum, The Valley of Butterflies, charming villages and beautiful beaches

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.
