This luxurious package is a cornucopia of destinations to make your exprience of Greece as broad as possible, with a hint of coastal Turkey to spice things up. Your trip begins in Athens, where you can visit paragons of civilization such as the Acropolis during the day and at night experience the city's modern lifestyle in the bars and restaurants surrounding the historic monument. A true ambassador of Mediterranean cuisine, Greek delicacies will add an unexpected culinary dimension to your journey. You will move on to the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos, known for its nightlife as much as it is for the pitcuresque whitewashed Cycladic windmills. From there you will embark upon a cruise that will take you to various destinations in Greece and Turkey.

From the oriental landscape of Kusadasi, one of Turkey's principle holiday resorts it's on to Patmos, famous for the Cave of the Apocalypse, where John the Revelator is said to have written the last book of the New Testament. The next stop is the medieval island of Rhodes, influenced by the many different civilizations that have passed through during the centuries. Afterwards you will make a short visit to the traditional island of Crete before stopping at Santorini, home to some of the best wineries of the area. The caldera (a volcanic formation that is now mostly filled with water) is a sight to see and the sunset as seen from Thira is the perfect way to end such a magnificent experience.
