Your launch pad to a Greek island adventure begins in the capital, where you’ll be met on arrival and transferred to your hotel. There’s plenty of time to relax on the islands, so lace up your walking shoes and discover the city your way. Later, join your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a glimpse into what lies ahead.
Accommodation: Zafolia (or similar)

DAY 2 ATHENS SIGHTSEEING AND FREE TIME
The Acropolis looms large over Athens and today you’ll get up close and personal with this ancient citadel. Your Local Specialist reveals its extraordinary history that spans thousands of years as you view the archaeological remains of temples, theatres and the mighty Parthenon, considered the most important building to survive from Classical Greece. You’ll view the Panathinaiko Olympic Stadium, the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, stopping in Syntagma Square to admire the curiously clad Evzone guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The rest of the day is yours to explore Athens on your terms, but with ancient history on your mind you may wish to embark on an Optional Experience to see the 5thcentury BC Temple of Poseidon at Sounion. This evening, if the sizzle of street food hasn’t already captured your attention, you may wish to join your fellow travellers for an optional traditional dinner at a favourite city taverna.

DAY 3 ATHENS – SANTORINI (3 NIGHTS)
Don’t resist the urge to slow it all down as you leave the busy cityscape behind and catch a highspeed ferry to Santorini. The spectacular volcanic eruption in 1646 BC had quite the magic touch on its dramatic landscape. After checking in and an orientation tour, you’ll have some time on your own, followed by dinner at your hotel.

DAY 4 SANTORINI FREE TIME
Don’t waste a second of your time lazing on the sunsoaked beaches of Santorini when you can ascend to its highest point for stunning views instead. This Optional Experience will reveal the iconic landscapes of the Cyclades you’ve only seen in photographs the gleaming whitewashed buildings, cerulean blue domes and tumbling cerise bougainvillea. An alternative Optional Experience could see you board a caïque fishing boat to the volcano instead, soaking in its warm thermal waters and healing mud against the backdrop of Santorini’s enchanting clifftop villages. This evening, there’s no better place to bid farewell to another beautiful island day than in Oia. After an optional afternoon wine tasting paired with local meze, you’ll stroll through its marble streets to our favourite sunset spot to capture the Instagram shot of the trip.
MEAL(S) Breakfast

DAY 5 SANTORINI FREE TIME
Indulge in another full day to explore Santorini your way. You could choose one of several Optional Experiences to fill the day or stroll through Fira’s narrow streets shopping for last minute souvenirs, clothing and jewellery.

Why not make the most of your final evening in Santorini, sampling the local culinary delights with uninterrupted views of the Aegean Sea? There’s always time for one last ouzo.
MEAL(S) Breakfast

DAY 6 SANTORINI – MYKONOS (3 NIGHTS)
Bound for the island playground of Mykonos. All that stands between you and the sunkissed shores of the Cyclades is a short highspeed ferry ride. After transferring to your hotel and a short orientation tour, Mykonos is yours for the taking so don’t hold back and seek out your favourite island spots for the rest of your stay. Whitewashed
houses line the narrow streets and life is rather idyllic behind the colourful wooden shutters that shield the locals from the warm Mediterranean sun. Dinner tonight is included and you’ll need no excuse to stay out late, indulging in the island’s renowned nightlife.

Before you dip your toes into the water, you’ll visit Ano Mera village whose 16thcentury monastery is dedicated to the protectress of Mykonos. Then continue to the beautiful Blue Flag beach of Kalafatis to enjoy a cruise on a traditional caïque fishing boat, where the cocktails are cold, and the party never ends.

DAY 8 MYKONOS FREE TIME
Grab your front row seat to the goings on in Mykonos’s old port as you sit perched on one of the brightly painted wooden balconies characteristic of Little Venice. There’s time today to wander through the shopping streets of Chora village and see the 16th century windmills of Kato Mili that look out over the bay. For history lovers, there’s no better way to spend your day than joining an optional visit to nearby Delos, the legendary birthplace of Apollo and his twin sister Artemis. On this captivating exploration of what was once the most important site in ancient Greece, you’ll see many artefacts that have been collected in the ruins of this sacred site. After a day of sightseeing, you’ll want to make the most of your final evening in this island playground. Seek out a taverna with beautiful views of the sunset and toast to another day in paradise with new friends.
MEAL(S) Breakfast

DAY 9 MYKONOS – ATHENS (1 NIGHT)
Leaving island life behind, it’s time to return to Athens for a final exhilarating encounter with the vibrant Greek capital. Transfer to your Athens hotel, then spend the evening in the narrow lanes of Plaka following your nose past its 19th century façades to find the best souvlaki in town. A lively evening lies ahead if you’ve yet to have your fill of good times with good friends. Keep your toes tapping to the street music that fills the air and find a taverna with your name on it.
