This is a chance for history lovers to see the wonders of ancient Greece while relaxing in deluxe locations. Your adventure begins in Athens, the cradle of democracy, where you will have the opportunity to visit some of the most prominent monuments as well as the Acropolis Museum, through a city tour. Once you've had your fill of sightseeing, explore the metropolis and discover its lounge bars, traditional taverns, luxurious restaurants and elegant art galleries. Your next stop in the volcanic island of Santorini, which has been shaped like a crescent due to eruptions that took place millennia ago. This has rendered the island a modern geological marvel, as it is surrounded by beaches laid with volcanic pebbles of different colors. The town of Thira is perched on a cliff and the view of the gorgeous sunset from up high is magnificent as all the different colors create a unique chromatic symphony on the Aegean sky.  Later on you will find yourself in Crete, home of the famous Minoan civilization. From the palace of Knossos, to the picturesque town of Chania and the tiny island of Spinalonga that served as a leper colony, this vast island that marks the border between Europe and Africa has myriad of sights to enjoy. The warm hospitality of the locals, combined with traditional Cretan delicacies should make this trip a complete experience which you won't stop talking about.

Why not enrich this experience by adding a trip to the quaint island of Naxos?
