The Greek Islands will awaken your senses on this bewitching 8-day tour, starting in Athens and including two popular islands. Delight in the sumptuous flavors of authentic Greek cuisine, spend time luxuriating on the white-sand beaches that hug the coastline of Naxos, escape to the secluded beaches of Koufonisia, bask in Santorini's serenity, and satiate your hunger for all ancient history in Athens.
Athens - Uncovering Ancient Eras
Street art covers the facades of derelict buildings, ancient Greek architecture juts out of the skyline, and the Acropolis looms over the city on a giant cliff. Welcome to Athens, a cityscape that blends age-old architecture with contemporary design, culminating in a fascinating mix of traditional and modern style. Equally spectacular as it is grimy, Athens’ charm is rarely bested because it is a truly authentic representation of the Greek progression, from Ancient eras to the present day. You will spend your day freely exploring the heritage and cultural gems that lie across the city before indulging in supper.
