Pursuit of Pleasure is specifically designed for budget conscious travelers that wish to visit Athens as well as the Greek islands. With a high quality to price ratio, you will have the opportunity to spend 11 days in Greece, sharing your time between the capital, Naxos and Santorini. In Athens you will have the opportunity to experience a European metropolis with strong connections to antiquity, as you will frequently stumble upon ancient monuments sprouting up among urban districts. In every corner you will rediscover how history is intertwined with the city, giving Athens a unique vibe.
You first outing on the Aegean will be Naxos, the largest Cycladic island. With a geography that includes mountains, fertile valleys and sandy beaches, Naxos is possesses a truly rare combination of activities to enjoy from hiking to windsurfing and everything in between. Traversing the local trails will take you to small villages where people still wear traditional dress, weave on old looms, live off the fruit of the land and fully understand the meaning of the word philoxenia. After that traditional touch, it's time for something just a tad more cosmopolitan. Your journey will take you to Santorini, home to one of the world's most stunning sunsets. The golden hue in the sky as seen from the top of Imerovigli will awaken within you long-forgotten emotions and a new appreciation for nature. It won't take a sommelier to taste the centuries of experience in winemaking, either. So grab a local glass of wine and relax as you enjoy a cornucopia of colors parade in front of your eyes. While you are at it, try some of Santorini's wonderful beaches that are laid with volcanic pebbles that come in red, white and black. Pack your bags and join an adventure so popular that it forced us to launch a sequel!
