Day 1 Athens
This Greek adventure kicks off in Athens. Arrive early to visit the Parthenon, see the Temple of Olympian Zeus or be awed by the Acropolis – the axis of the city which towers over the increasingly modern streets below and serves as an ever-present reminder of an ancient history. If time permits, maybe take a day trip to the Saronic Islands or Delphi.
Days 2 & 3 Syros
Relax aboard a scenic ferry from Piraeus to Syros. Upon arrival, discover abandoned windmills, ancient ruins and charming villages on a network of stone-paved tracks that crisscross the island. Cool off with a swim at one of the inviting beaches dotted along the coast and at night, be serenaded by classic Rembetiko tunes that waft from the open windows of family-run tavernas.
Days 4 & 5 Mykonos
Arrive on Mykonos, a beautiful island named in honour of Apollo's grandson. Be captivated by the quintessential Greek Isles vista of squat white houses brightly juxtaposed against the cerulean sea. Follow flower-lined paths past age-old churches and tiny restaurants to secluded, sandy beaches and spend the afternoon soaking up the rays and splashing in the water. As the sun sets, join Europe's party crowd at one of the many bars and clubs on Mykonos, or take a more traditional approach with a meal at a delightful backstreet restaurant. The next day, travel to an archaeological site on the island of Delos, a sacred area that was once the political and religious centre of the Aegean.
Days 6 - 8 Santorini
Wind up the adventure on the southern island of Santorini. Learn first-hand why this remains one of Europe's top holiday hotspots. Chill out on a beach of black sand, admire the ruins of ancient Thira and Akrotiri or hire a scooter to cruise the coastal roads. In the late afternoon, join the crowds that scatter over the hillside at Oia to witness a magnificent sunset over the bay.
