This package includes an itinerary ideally suited for those looking to discover Greece’s beautiful landscape while immersing themselves in the country's history. Your journey begins in the cosmopolitan capital of Greece which juxtaposes modern urban architecture with monuments from days long past. The half day tour will give you the opportunity to visit the marvel that is Acropolis, an ancient temple perched splendidly above the city. Your exploration continues with an amazing 4 day cruise to the Greek islands and Turkey.

First stop is Mykonos, an island encompassing the Cycladic spirit with whitewashed houses and windmills. The nightlife alone is a source of attraction for visitors from all round the globe. You will then be transported to Kusadasi, one of Turkey's principle holiday resorts and make an excursion to ancient Ephesus. Then comes Patmos, a place of incredible religious importance due to the years John the Revelator spend on the island. Continuing south, you reach Rhodes, the place of the strong contrasts between medieval monuments and traditional elements and lacy beaches next to pine covered mountains. Next stop is Heraklion, the largest city in Crete, where you can experience the traditional Cretan lifestyle, the indescribable delicacies found only on the island and the warm hospitality of the locals. The final stop of your cruise before returning to Mykonos is Santorni, the most popular island in all of Greece. From its wineries, to the volcanic caldera and the golden sunset, Santorini has a million reasons to become a must-see destination for every traveler. You will then get to spend two whole days in Mykonos exploring the island before you return back to Athens.
