Athens & The Greek Islands

If Greece has been on your bucket list then this may just be the trip for you. Not only will we visit Athens but we will spend two nights on each of the islands of Santorini and Mykonos.
Arguably the most important civilization of the ancient world flourished in Athens and relives through superb architectural masterpieces. We will tour the city featuring Syntagma Square, the Temple of Zeus and the Ancient Olympic stadium. One of the highlights will be a visit to the Acropolis with its incredible Parthenon. Then visit the New Acropolis Museum, housing statues and other masterpieces from the classical era. From here we continue to Plaka, the oldest part of the city, filled with history, restaurants and shopping.
From the Port of Piraeus take a high-speed ferry to Mykonos, which belongs to the Cyclades, a group of islands in the Aegean Sea. Visit Delos, known as the legendary birthplace of twin gods Artemis & Apollo. Enjoy a tour featuring the Temple of Apollo, the Sanctuary of Artemis, the Old city, the Theater and the iconic Terrace of the Lions.
Another high-speed ferry ride and we are on one of the most picturesque islands in the world, Santorini, Greece’s most romanticized island, famous for its white-washed buildings and hilltop villages overlooking the Aegean Sea. Visit a local winery to enjoy a Wine Tasting. Next travel through the fascinating landscape to the spectacular town of Oia.
