This package is a potpourri of some of the world-class destinations, each one adding its special bit to a journey of a lifetime. Starting from Athens, explore this modern metropolis infused with a high-octane dose of history and culture. Stroll between contemporary buildings that lie adjacent to ancient temples. Step in stylish shops sprinkled amidst traditional markets. Next stop, Mykonos! A cosmopolitan island that will captivate you with its white-washed houses, gathered around a marina dotted with colorful fishing boats. Enjoy the quality services and exquisite nightlife that the island has to offer along with the long lacy beaches, before you cruise to Kusadasi, an exotic coastal resort. Then let us take you from the cosmopolitan places to the awe-inspiring and mysterious island of Patmos. A strangely isolated island, evolved uninterruptedly since the 12th century, where St. John had his vision and wrote the Apocalypse. What follows is the island of Rhodes. A place that hosted in antiquity on of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Colossus of Rhodes. Discover the island’s eventful past from medieval monuments of the UNESCO world heritage to traditional elements. And there is more to go! Next stop is Heraklion, the largest city on the island of Crete. Enjoy your stay at this traditional island, discover its long history, unique local delicacies and feel the Greek hospitality. Time heave your anchors to the crescent-shaped island of Santorini, which is believed to be the source of the legend of lost Atlantis. An island that came out of the remnants of a volcanic eruption and steals your heart at first glance with its candy-colored houses perched on volcanic cliffs, encircled by deep blue waters, beaches with white, red or black volcanic pebbles and sunsets tinted with all the hues of a colorist’s palette. Only a unique ending can be suitable for a unique package, the romantic Paris. Time to get lost in a maze of fascinating historical and cultural sights.
