The village of Kastro in Sifnos
Package rate per person in double/twin room during low season From 1021

A package for truly ‘smart’ travelers that want to experience a mixture of Greek mainland and islandic destinations alternating between historically significance and natural beauty!

Begin your adventure in Athens, a modern, chaotic metropolis which combines all the contemporary comforts with a rich history that is irrevocably tied to antiquity. While you explore the former on your own, a half day sightseeing tour will help guide you through the latter. Before you set sail for the idyllic island of Sifnos, we have one more surprise for you! A 2 day tour of Delphi and Meteora that is carefully designed to serve as a concise way to experience Central Greece. First you will visit the Oracle in Delphi, whose prophecies led ancient Greeks to numerous war campaigns and then stand in awe in front of the geological wonder of Meteora, before you come to the stupefying realization that ageless Byzantine monasteries lay on top of the imposing rock pillars that rise from the valley below!

If you want your visit to Greece to include a diverse array of destinations, make the smart choice and book today!
