11 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,404

Explore the most famous destinations in Greece on this journey passing from Athens to the islands of Mykonos, Paros, and Santorini. As you explore the nation, you’ll visit ancient ruins like the Acropolis in Athens, experience the iconic nightlife of Mykonos, relax on the golden beaches of Paros, and stroll the romantic windswept cliffs of Santorini.


This 11-day Greece vacation takes you to the capital, Athens, as well as some of the famous Greek Islands, including Mykonos, Paros, and Santorini.

Your Greek vacation begins in Athens, a landmark city famous the world over for its incredible history and culture. Dotted with ruins from the 5th century B.C. such as the famous Acropolis, the city is essentially a living and breathing museum. Take some time to explore the famous sites such as the Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympics were held in 1896, the Temple of Zeus, and, of course, the Acropolis, where you'll find the Temple of Athena Nike and the iconic Parthenon. That evening, you'll take a drive beneath the stars to see the Acropolis lit up on its towering hill. Afterwards, you'll stroll through the narrow streets of Plaka to experience Athens' golden age firsthand.

From Athens, continue your Greece vacation by taking the ferry to Mykonos, the thumping heartbeat of the Cyclades Islands. Mykonos is second-to-none when it comes to nightlife, but it's also home to high-end restaurants and stunning views that'll satisfy even more sedate travellers. While in Mykonos, take a tour to Delos, the mythological birthplace of the twin Greek gods, Apollo and Artemis. As you tour the archaeological site, you'll learn about Greece's over 5,000 years of history and visit the Delos Museum to see the extensive collection of statues taken from the ruins.

Continue your Greek Islands vacation by heading to Paros, a central island known for its ferry hub and trendy resorts. Spend your time enjoying the dining scene, relaxing on the beaches, and exploring the historical marble quarry, which supplied the marble used to carve the Venus de Milo. You’ll have a few days at leisure on Paros to take full advantage of its incredible beaches and sunny climate.

Close out your Greek vacation by heading to the breathtaking island of Santorini, the magical home to whitewashed houses, windswept cliffs, and picture-perfect bliss. You can stroll along the 300m-high cliffs towering over the ocean and enjoy the romantic atmosphere of the island's charming towns. On Santorini, you'll take a day to sail to the surrounding volcanic islands and walk across lava fields. Cruise to Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni, two volcanoes known for their gorgeous caldera, and then relax in the nearby hot springs. You can also explore the Minoan ruins of Akrotiri during your time on the island. You’ll then head to the airport for your flight home.

Day 9

Volcano and Hot Springs

Leave the port of Athinios to embark on the traditional boat for your visit of active craters of the volcano on the top of the island of Nea Kameni, in Greek means "new burnt"... where you will stop for about 1 1/2 H.

Then sail to Palea Kameni, "old burnt", where thermal springs provide natural warm-water bathing. While the surrounding water and beaches may be cold, and winds can be daunting. Your stop will be about 30m. Next destination will be Thirassia which is a typical cycladic village with a way of life as it used to be before the invasion of tourism. Tiny houses of various colours give a special character to these small settlements. Is an ideal place to taste some of the traditional plates of Santorini (lunch is not included in the price), to swim or to discover the simple village of Manolios by donkey. Here your stop will be about 1.5 - 2H.

When you arrive in your last destination the assistant will inform you the pick-up point and the time that the buses depart (that depends on the sunset time) . The village is approximately 150 meters above sea level. This distance covered or walking the traditional steps on feet (250 steps) or by donkeys. Oia was severely damaged in the 1956 earthquake and much work has been involved to implement its restoration. The beauty of Oia is unsurpassed. In fact, it is almost impossible to describe in words. Small white houses tier the hillside, interspersed by splashes of rich okra, deep fuchsia, cobalt blue, oyster pink and earthy red. Oia is one of the most photographed places in Greece. It has inspired artists, poets and every visitor who visits Santorini. Oia is best known for breathtaking sunsets; if truth be told, sunrise in Oia is also magical. In Oia there are two types of dwellings, the cave houses dug into the volcanic rock on the Caldera cliffs, and the Captains houses. The cave houses used to be the homes of ship crews, whereas the Captains houses belonged to the affluent class of ship owners. Many of the churches in Oia were dedicated to sailors.
