Athens - Naxos - Santorini - Crete

Duration: 14 Days /13 Nights
Famous shipwreck beach at Imeri Gramvousa islet near Chania city, Crete island
Package rate per person in double room during low season From 1899

This is a package oriented towards travelers for an extensive vacation to islandic destinations. Beginning in Athens, you will have the opportunity to witness the wonders left behind by the ancient Greeks in a city that transcends the definition of "historic". In every corner of this modern European metropolis you will find opportunities for sightseeing between traditional taverns and upscale bar-restaurants. The half day city tour that is included in this package will take you to some of the most important monuments of antiquity and offer a starting point for your own explorations. The island-hopping part of your trip starts in Naxos, a traditional island on the heart of Cyclades. Scattered around the island you will come across small villages where the locals still wear traditional dress and weave looms. An authentic Naxian experience cannot be complete without a glass of local wine after a day of hiking the trails that lead to remote sandy beaches.

You will certainly rediscover the true beauty of nature before you even set foot on your next destination. As you approach the port of Thira in Santorini, the town perched on the volcanic cliff will be enough to make you feel that this trip was worth it. And that's before you see the famous Red Beach and White Beach that are laid with volcanic pebbles or catch the view from the top of Imerovigli. As the sun dives towards the Aegean and the symphony of illumination paints the sky in an awe-inspiring hue, you will come to understand what is it that makes Santorini so special. The final stop on your magnificent journey is the enormous island of Crete. We know it's not very easy to explore as much of Crete as you would like in a single trip so this package has a twist! With four days on the island spent in both the urban Heraklion and the picturesque Chania, you will be able to plan your own excursion to the multitude of traditional villages and towns spread around the vicinity. Try your best to taste as many Cretan delicacies as you can to experience the culinary art of combining Mediterranean products with oriental herbs and spices. 

Why not combine this experience with a visit to cosmopolitan Mykonos or the medieval island of Rhodes?
