Package rate per person in double room during low season From 2197

A package oriented for travelers who wish to spend a significant amount of time exploring diverse islandic destinations in order to experience the many facets of Greek life. Your adventure begins in Athens, the cradle of western civilization, where the ancient world still lingers on every corner of this modern European metropolis. Walk the streets of the city center and marvel at the preserved monuments that are ever-present among the multitude of modern bars and restaurants. Join the half day city tour to see the most important monuments of the city first-hand. First stop on your Aegean adventure is the cosmopolitan Mykonos. The whitewashed houses that are built in the traditional Cycladic style, against the deep blue of the surrounding sea, create a magnificent scenery. At night, the colorful lights coming from the island's luxurious bars, illuminate the scenery completing an incredible juxtaposition.

Onto a new adventure, this time on the island of Naxos. Tradition comes alive on the small villages of the island, with locals still in dresses of the previous century and delicacies the rest of Greece seems to have forgotten. Take the hiking trails to reach isolated beaches and remote chapels to complete an authentic Naxian experience. One cannot say they've been to Greece without visiting the majestic Santorini. The island of golden sunsets has been a staple of the tourism industry world-wide for decades. Its volcanic origins have given way to the rare sight of a caldera and to secluded beaches laid with volcanic pebbles of different colors. If that's not convincing, Santorini also has wine...not just any wine, but one of the best in Greece. That alone speaks volumes. Final stop on your journey is Crete, with 3 days to explore the vast Mediterranean island as you please. Establish your base at Heraklion and start daily excursions to Agios Nikolaos, Chania and Rethymno. Try every Cretan delicacy you can get your hands on and enjoy the warm local hospitality.
