Itinerary

Day

1

USA – Athens

Relax, rest your eyes, and prepare for your Grecian adventure during your overnight flight to Athens. 

Day

2

Athens – Arrival

First Class: Polis Grand Hotel or similar hotels

Upon arrival in Athens, make your own way to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure to explore this historical city. With layers upon layers of history, a modern culture with roots steeped in ancient tradition, and the beautiful beaches that it is known for, you will never have a boring moment. If you need a break from the sunshine and heat, we recommend a visit to one of Athens' many museums, including but not limited to the Acropolis Museum, the Byzantine & Christian Museum, the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture, the National Archaeological Museum, and the Industrial Gas Museum.  

Day

Athens Hop On-Hop Off tour

First Class: Polis Grand Hotel or similar hotels

Use your 24-hour Hop On/Hop Off ticket today to discover Athens best sights and attractions. Staples include the Acropolis, Parthenon, Ancient Agora, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Kerameikos, Odeon of Herodes Atticus, and Hadrian's Arch, but for a relaxing respite, take a few moments to visit lesser-known gems like the National Garden and Stavros Niarchos Park! And don't forget to indulge in the mecca of delicious cuisine at your fingertips; you may want to take a culinary walking tour of the city, or perhaps you'd prefer a quiet meal in an authentic setting like the Diporto Agoras. With no printed menu or even signage (look for two sets of doors leading to a cellar), this charming taverna is truly an Athens hidden treasure. (B) 

Day

4

Athens – Paros

First Class: Zefi Hotel and Suites or similar hotels

After breakfast, make your own way to the port of Piraeus to board your ferry to Paros. Upon arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. A hilly and fertile island, Paros has been called home by many civilizations, including the Cretans, Minoans, Ionians, Arcadians, Macedonians, Romans, and Byzantines. Its claim to fame is that both the Venus de Milo  and Napoleon's tomb were carved from Parian marble! However, there is much, much more to discover here. The footprints of history have left behind gorgeous museums, ancient ruins, and sandy golden beaches. With relatively few crowds and a plethora of both adventurous and relaxing activities, Paros will be your remote island paradise.  (B)  

Day

5

Paros

First Class: Zefi Hotel and Suites or similar hotels

Enjoy a full day at leisure. Visit Naoussa, a picturesque fishing village with narrow alleyways. It's an excellent spot for beaches, restaurants and cafes, and boutique shopping. Explore the pint-sized town of Parikia, the capital and main port of the island - small in size, but enormous in spirit! Get lost in its labyrinthine Old Town as you explore the cafes, restaurants, and shops that line its streets. You may want to take a short walk over to the nearby town of Livadia, known for its extraordinary tranquillity and photogenic-ness. And, of course - as with anywhere in Paros - take full advantage of those picture-perfect beaches! (B)  

Day

6

Paros

First Class: Zefi Hotel and Suites or similar hotels

Enjoy the day at your leisure. We suggest that you hire a car and explore Paros on your own for a uniquely private adventure. The island has numerous beaches including the Golden Sand Beach, Pounda, Logaras, and Piso Livadi. Some beaches are more popular than others - but we'll leave those judgments up to you! You can even easily find your own private beach on the southeastern part of this island. Consider visiting Paros Park for even more beaches and walking trails, hidden caves, rock formations, ancient buildings, and more! For a respite from the sun, check out the award-winning Lefkes Ceramic Workshop, featuring a unique crackle style. (B)  

Day

7

Paros – Santorini

First Class: Amaryllis Hotel or similar hotels

After breakfast, make your own way to Parikia port to board your ferry to Santorini. Approaching Santorini from the water is a real treat, as you will have an uninterrupted view of its sheer cliffs jutting over turquoise waters - which are actually remnants of the immense crater of a drowned volcano that you are sailing through! Santorini has violent beginnings, as it was formed from a cataclysmic eruption of that same volcano, but today it is fertile and rich with history, culture, gastronomy, and the spirit of its people. Take out your camera and enjoy the journey until your arrival, upon which you will make your own way to your hotel. (B) 

Day

8

Santorini

First Class: Amaryllis Hotel or similar hotels

Take this day to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of Santorini. You may recognize the cinematically popular white Cycladic houses teetering on the cliff edges and spilling down over the rock. You can see where your wanderings take you - there's not one part of the island that isn't postcard-perfect, so getting lost is an adventure itself! - or you may consider visiting one of the more sustainable sites. As an increasingly popular tourist destination, Santorini's infrastructure as become threatened by the luxurious restaurants and wineries that have been popping up. To avoid further strain on the local lifestyle and for a more remote experience, a visit to the ancient ruins is just as memorable. We suggest that you visit Akrotiri and its excavations, one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. (B) 

Day

9

Santorini

First Class: Amaryllis Hotel or similar hotels

Today, you may wish to indulge in one of Santorini's traditional tourist activities - well worth their reputation! Visit one of the many wineries on the island such as Kamari, one of the oldest and featuring a stop at the atmospheric Art Gallery along the way, which also features housemade wine. Or wander through Oia village, famous for its stunning sunsets, when audiences literally applaud as the sun sinks down over the horizon. And you simply cannot leave this sunny eden without visiting one of the stupendous and gastronomically genius restaurants on the caldera. There is something for every palate, ranging from modern Greek fusion cuisines to authentic taverna dishes, all within steps of the sea. Enjoy the local specialties and the stunning views across the Aegean. (B) 

Day
