Athens - Naxos - Santorini

Duration: 10 Days / 9 Nights
Destinations:
Package rate per person in double room during low season From 1297

A budget-conscious package for travelers that wish to get to combine relaxing destination with popular islands and experience a dual side of Greece. Your exploits begin in Athens, a European metropolis still bearing the marks of a great civilization in every corner. Wandering through the Athenian narrow streets will take you to art galleries, ancient ruins, traditional taverns, museums, hip bars and luxurious restaurants. In short, no matter what your heart's desire, Athens is bound to satisfy it. The half day tour will give you an idea of what to explore on your leisure time.

Your first taste of the Aegean comes in Naxos, an island interweaved with Cycladic tradition, where can still find locals in traditional dress, using old looms and living life as if time has left the island untouched for decades. There, you will also discover some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. Whether, you enjoy luxurious catamaran tours or exploring small villages on the mountainside, good times are sure to be had in Naxos. Next stop on your trip is Santorini, for a more worldly view in the backdrop of immense natural beauty. The dormant volcano has been filled with water creating a spectacular sight in the form of a caldera. Alas, it has left its mark on the island with the town of Thira perched on the edge of a hill and the beaches surrounding it decorated with volcanic pebbles of different colors. These natural wonders made the view of the sunset on the island a necessary experience.

Why not enrich this experience by also visiting Crete?

  • Day 2 – Athens half day sightseeing tour
    Prepare yourselves for a succinct but inclusive dose of Greek history and culture! After breakfast, our collaborator will pick you up from your hotel or nearby to start the morning half-day sightseeing tour of Athens' most iconic spots. Acropolis and its spectacular museum will definitely be the highlight of this tour, but sites like the Academy of Athens, Hadrian’s Arch and the Greek Parliament will spice up your experience in the cradle of Western democracy!
    Overnight: Athens
    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Day 3 – Arrival in Naxos
    In the morning, you will be transferred from your hotel to the port by your driver and board the ferry to Naxos. As you approach the island, make sue to watch for the Portara, on the nearby islet of Palatia. The only remaining monument of an unfinished temple to Apollo, this marble gate is a signature site for the island. In Naxos’ port, another transfer awaits for you, to take you to your hotel. You will have plenty of time left in the day to start exploring and maybe plan early and get some souvenir shopping done in some of Naxos’ many traditional shops!
    Overnight: Naxos
    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Days 4 & 5 – Enjoy Naxos
    Naxian people are known for their hospitality and for good reason. Take advantage of the opportunity to visit small villages spread around the island and see how Naxians live. If you are lucky, you might even get to be invited to a traditional Naxian home-cooked meal! In the main town of Chora, the Kastro ditrict houses the Old Market as well as a Venetian-style neighborhood with a castle! There are many museums featuring archaeological discoveries and traditional artifacts on the island for those looking to learn more about Naxos’ history and standing within the ancient world. Last but not least, beaches like Pyrgaki, Kastraki and Agios Prokopios are well worth a visit if you feel like taking a dip in the Aegean Sea!
    Overnight: Naxos
    Meals: 2 Breakfasts
     
  • Day 6 – Arrival in Santorini
    From your hotel, you will be transferred to the port and hop on the ferry to Santorini. Once there, our local collaborator will transfer you to your hotel on the island. The most common places to stay in Santorini are Oia, Fira and Imerovigli, so we recommend you take the rest of the day to explore the village your hotel is located in, since you’ll have plenty of time to go around the island in the days to come!
    Overnight: Santorini
    Meals: Breakfast
     
  • Days 7 & 8 – Santorini
    Two days may not be enough to do everything there is to do in Santorini, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying! On the south end of the crescent-shaped island lies the archaeological site of Akrotiri, and the Museum of Prehistoric Thira features a multitude of exciting exhibits. The village of Oia on the north side arguably offers the best view of the golden Santorinian sunset and on the way there you can always find quaint little vineyards and taste some local wine. Around the island, there are unique beaches formed by volcanic activity on the island, with the Red & White beach, as well as Vlychada, being highlights. Perhaps the best way to experience as much of Santorini as possible in a short amount of time would be to join a sunset sailing cruise on a catamaran.
    Overnight: Santorini
    Meals: 2 Breakfasts
     
  • Day 9 – Return to Athens
