Detailed Description

Experience the romance of the Grecian Spirit on this 14-day tour that will take you through the wonders of the Mediterranean that have shaped Greece’s character through its history and modernity. The ruins of the past and the luxuries of the present continue to enchant all those who experience Zicasso’s Greece vacations. From luxuriant beaches to towering ruins, well-preserved architecture to spectacular artistry, you will stroll, cruise, and journey along breathtaking sites where momentous prophecies were whispered, heroes competed, and epic love stories were written. From beaches to mountains and everything in between, this is the perfect tour to witness the true essence of Greece.

Begin your Grecian vacation with your arrival in Athens. The day is at your leisure, ready for you to absorb the rich scent of olive oil and historical cobblestones of the Plaka, the oldest street in the city. The next morning, you will be guided through the city on a tour that sweeps through the past, from the new Acropolis Museum to the Acropolis itself, where the immaculate sculptures decorate the opulent Parthenon. Consider learning more about your highly rated Greece tour operators who strive to make your tours as informative and personalized as can be. Journey northbound and visit Mycenae, a keystone to the Bronze Age civilization that conquered Troy, creating one of the most epic romances of the classical age. The large stones and rolling tombs give a sense of the forceful nature of Agamemnon’s home. In Olympia, you will venture through the ruins that gave birth to the Olympics, modern games celebrated throughout the world as a medium of peace, understanding, and fierce but respectable competition. The ruins of Delphi continue to emanate a majesty that once brought reverie to the city that housed the legendary Oracle. Upon your return to Athens, you will settle in for the evening, readying yourself for the next chapter of your journey.

Your experience of the passionate Grecian Spirit continues as you board a ship that will take you to the Aegean Sea on the shores of Mykonos. Spend days enjoying the opulent waters, secluded beaches, charming streets, and even the storied island of Delos. After three nights reveling in the fantastic island, your boat will cruise through the grand waters of the Mediterranean, taking you to the extraordinary city of Kusadasi, close to the remarkable ancient city of Ephesus. On the island of Patmos, you can visit the tremendous hidden niches of the Cave of the Apocalypse, home to where St. John the Divine wrote the Book of Revelations. On Rhodes, you will witness the connective cultures that have traversed the island throughout its history, leaving their mark through a culmination of architecture, art, and food. Find yourself on Heraklion, Crete where there are whisperings of the legendary Minotaur having once roamed through the most famous labyrinth in Western Civilization. In Santorini, you can stroll through elegant villages or witness the ash-covered city of Akrotiri before arriving back in Athens and returning home.
