Athens - Mykonos - Santorini - Crete

Duration: 11 days / 10 nights
Destinations:
The palm beach of Vai is one of the largest attractions of the Mediterranean island of Crete
Package rate per person in double room during low season From 1674

This vacation package offers the chance for an extensive visit to multiple Greek destinations, focusing on the islands. Upon arriving at the capital, you will have the opportunity for sightseeing through an organized half day city tour. Naturally, your leisure time will be plenty so you will be free to explore the city's modern neighborhoods, dine in traditional taverns and appreciate the artistic side of Athens. Your first islandic excursion will be at Mykonos, in the heart of the Cycladic complex. A cosmopolitan island and subsequently a magnet for all kinds of celebrities, Mykonos offers luxury in a picturesque setting populated by windmills, whitewashed houses, colorful fishing boats and the deep blue of the Aegean. First-class bars, clubs and restaurants can be found all around the island and at all times of the day. They don't call Mykonos "the island that never sleeps" for no reason.

A ferry will then transport you to Santorini, another immensely famous Greek island, but for different reasons. It may not be as worldly as your previous stop, but the natural beauty of Santorini makes it a unique vacation destination. Born out of a volcanic eruption that shaped the island like a crescent, it stands today as a living testament to nature's power. The volcano is now dormant and filled with water, creating the rare sight of a caldera, which can be sailed through. Isolated beaches laid with red, white or black volcanic pebbles surround the island and the sunsets on Santorini are therefore one of the best on the world. Viewing one from the top of Imerovigli is an experience you shouldn't miss out on. Finally, we take you to Crete, a large island on the south Aegean, marking the border between Europe and Africa. With its unique cuisine combining Mediterranean and oriental flavors and its vast diversity of large cities, picturesque villages, Venetian harbors, mountain slopes and vineyards, Crete is an island that begs to be explored. Will you take up the challenge?

Why not enhance this experience by adding another destination like the quaint Naxos or the medieval island of Rhodes?

    Overnight: Mykonos
    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Day 4 - Experience Mykonos
    Mykonos is a place of stark contrasts, as in just the Chora you can find the luxurious Alefkandra – known as Little Venice- near the serene Mykonian Windmills and the elegant, stylish Matogianni street galleries, minutes away from the Paraportiani Church. Yet, Mykonos manages to effortlessly make the transition between the traditional and the contemporary, creating a unique fusion that has rendered the island a favorite destination of millions of people every year! If you wish to explore the islets around Mykonos, we recommend a half day yachting tour to Rinia and Delos.
    Overnight: Mykonos

  • Day 6 - Experience Santorini
    There is an inordinate amount of activities you shouldn’t miss out on while in Santorini. The villages of Oia and Imerovigli, on the north and central sides of the island respectively, with their narrow picturesque alleys and traditional Cycladic architecture beg to be explored. For those interested in history, Akrotiri lays on the south end and its museum features frescoes from the Minoan era. Past volcanic activity has graced Santorini with unique beaches of red, black and white colors, but since some of them are only accessible by boat, you may want to consider enhancing your itinerary with a sunset sailing tour around the island.
    Overnight: Santorini
    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Day 7 - Arrival in Crete (Heraklion)
    In the afternoon, you have a transfer from your hotel to the port and on the ferry that will sail you to Crete. You will dock in Heraklion, the largest city of the vast island, where you will pick up your rental car, in order to have absolute freedom in your movement.
    Overnight: Crete (Heraklion)
    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Day 8 - Explore Crete (Heraklion - Chania)
    Having your own vehicle means you can craft your itinerary with much more ease. Since you are in Heraklion, a visit to the historic Knossos Palace and the surrounding areas is highly recommended. Knossos has served as a cultural and economic center of Crete in most of recorded history and a chance to see it up close is something hard to pass on. The Throne Room is particularly impressive as it is believed to have been the private quarters of king Minoas himself! Whenever you are ready proceed to drive west until you reach Chania, passing the charming town of Rethymno on the way.
    Overnight: Crete (Chania)
    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Day 9 - Explore Crete (Chania)
    West Crete features diverse landscape which can turn anyone into an avid nature-lover. Establishing the picturesque town of Chania as your base, we recommend driving to the traditional nearby villages, like Sfakia and paying a visit to Elafonisi and its coral sand dunes. In Preveli, you can see the banks of a river overflowing with palm trees as the fresh water zig-zags its way into the sea. The Balos Lagoon partners with the island of Gramvousa to create a wild and majestic spectacle. The Samaria Gorge is home to rare vegetation as well Kri-kri, the endangered species of goat that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. In the evenings, return to Chania, stroll through its narrow streets and settle in a tavern on the Venetian port, overlooked by the stone lighthouse, to enjoy local delicacies that combine Mediterranean ingredients with Oriental spices to give rise to a culinary festival of flavors.
    Overnight: Crete (Chania)
    Meals: Breakfast
