Package rate per person in double room during low season From 2016

This is a package specifically designed for travelers who wish to spend a significant amount of time exploring diverse Aegean destinations. Your journey begins in Athens, the cradle of western civilization, where the ancient world still lingers on every corner of this modern European metropolis. As you walk through the streets of the city you will marvel at the ever-present monuments of eras long gone but no forgotten. Among them a multitude of modern bars and restaurants provide constant opportunities for refreshment and culinary experimentation. In the half day city tour you will visit some of the most important monuments of ancient Athens before given the chance to explore on your own. First stop on your Aegean adventure is the island of Naxos, a beacon of every aspect of Cycladic tradition. The true spirit of Cyclades comes alive on the small villages of the island, with locals still in traditional dress and delicacies the rest of Greece seems to have forgotten. Take the hiking trails to reach remote chapels and isolated beaches and have an authentic Naxian experience. Next up is the majestic Santorini, a staple of the Aegean islands. Golden sunsets, fine wine, towns perched on steep cliffs and a dormant volcano filled with water that has turned to a caldera, barely scratch the surface of Santorini.

Another stop on this can't-miss experience, 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, drink raki and enjoy the warm local hospitality. Before you return to Athens, you will spend 3 days in the medieval setting of Rhodes, home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Colossus may be gone, but the island contains many other sights including the Medieval City, the Palace of the Grand Masters, mosques, UNESCO monuments, Hellenistic ruins, ancient temples, Byzantine churches and Turkish baths. How can you say no to a trip like that?
