Moonlight bathed Santorini island
per person in double room 790

Whoever thought that the Greek islands should only be visited during the summer was clearly not familiar with this exquisite package. Avoid the swarming crowds and visit prominent Aegean islands in a country proud to have mild weather all year long. Your journey starts from the capital of Greece, Athens, which masterfully combines the ancient world with contemporary elements. The half day sightseeing tour will afford you the opportunity to visit classic monuments with the help of an expert guide, while in your leisure time you will discover the city's cozy bars, luxurious restaurants and traditional taverns or you can optionally request a full day tour of Delphi at extra charge. What follows is a duo of islands that will expose you the Cycladic way of life. First up is the volcanic (don't worry, the volcano is dormant) island of Santorini. From the caldera to the town of Thira perched on a cliff, you will find many activities that will excite you. May the sunset find you on top of Imerovigli with a glass of local wine in your hand. We can't think of a better experience. Your last stop is the island of Naxos. Enjoy a slower pace of life and bask in the island's natural beauty, traditional villages, monasteries and Byzantine churches. Naxian delicacies are famous throughout the country so be sure to add a culinary element to your adventure.
