No time frame is long enough to enjoy the beautiful country of Greece, but in 10 days you can experience the gorgeous islands and learn about the history in the capital of Athens. Visit arguably three of the most popular and spectacular islands of Mykonos, Santorini and Ios, with all accommodation and ferries arranged for you.
Welcome to Greece! We meet at 6pm in the lobby for an informal meeting where you will be given some country information and explained how the week is going to unfold. There is an optional group dinner tonight to get to know the rest of the group.
Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece; it is one of the world’s oldest cities with history spanning back over 3,400 years and is widely referred to as the cradle of Western Civilization and the birthplace of democracy. The cultural and historical heritage is still evident in the city today and represented by all of the ancient monuments and works of art. Our tour will take you to many of these sites, including the National Library, the Academy, The Constitution Square and Parliament, The Temple of Zeus, Parthenon and Acropolis to name a few. The night is yours free to explore more of this incredible city.
We make an early start as we catch the ferry from Athens to Mykonos. In the afternoon, after meeting with your tour leader and other travellers, you will have an info meeting. Later, there will be a brief orientation walk, where you will be given some tips to explore the rest of the island on your own. It is no coincidence that this is the most cosmopolitan of all the Greek Islands and attracts thousands of visitors from around the world.
You have a free day in Mykonos. Mykonos Town (Chora) is the picturesque Greek island, with the fishing boats bobbing side by side with the luxury boats, the whitewashed streets, beaches, restaurants and bars; you will not be short of things to explore.
Departing from Mykonos with a ferry and heading for Santorini, an island formed by volcanic activity. It has been said that the sunsets here are the best in the world. From the Caldera, watch breath-taking views of the volcano & neighbouring islands. Being one of the major tourist attractions of Europe with its marvellous climate and perfect observation conditions, Santorini will offer you a wild beauty created from the volcano that lies in the middle of the bay.
Today you will have free time to explore the island.
Early this morning we take the ferry again and start sailing to Ios, a famous tourist destination. Visitors come here for its golden beaches and the characteristic Aegean architecture. It is well known as the party island with the lively atmosphere and the endless fun. The capital is built at the point where the ancient city was, where white houses unfold and its windmills and narrow small roads can be seen on the hill tops. A great party night is waiting for us.
A lazy day is waiting for us in Ios today. You have a free day.
Today we take the ferry and depart for Athens. We arrive to Athens around 23:15pm.
Our trip will end here (11:00am) in Athens. We say goodbye to our new friends.
