Detailed Description

The luscious taste of honey will spill into the beautiful scenes on this 10-day tour through Athens and the islands meant for anyone looking for a romantic escape. There is never an end to the marvels of Greece vacations, whether within the antiquity of Athenian ruins or wondrous villages of Santorini, from the diverse history of Crete to the elegant waters of the Mediterranean. Give yourself over to enjoy, settle into the beauty, and let every day be a treat.

Your ardent holiday begins with your arrival in Athens, where the cradle of Western Civilization was built. The history and mysteries of the ancients are set atop Acropolis Hill where the pillars of the past hold the passionate secrets sought by the world. Tour through the spectacular ruins of the ancient city that bring you face to face with the brilliant sculptures of Athens, set along the remains of the Parthenon, dedicated with adoration to the goddess Athena. Later that day you will board a flight and soar to the crescent beauty of Santorini.

The brilliance of Santorini is within its volcanic soil and remarkable inherent landscape. The island is yours to explore, giving you the opportunity to discover wonder after wonder, where majesty rains along the trails, over the marbled paths of Oia, through the ancient ruins of Akrotiri, and within the stunning caldera that has molded the spectacular view for you to relish. Your honeyed exploration of the islands continues with your arrival to Crete. You have the convenience of a rental car on the island allowing you the luxurious freedom to explore at your leisure. The lovely ruins of Knossos Minoan Palace linger within the mountains beneath the myth of the Minotaur, trapped by a king and conquered by love. Western Crete displays the magnificent colors and architecture of Rethymnon and Chania, both pristine Venetian port cities that fill the heart with joy and awe. The city of Agios Nikolaos encircles a lake and feels more like a small-town where you can wander the paths in happy seclusion. Your time in Greece is sure to bring you the splendor of the isles, the majesty of Athens, and is guaranteed to be as sweet as honey.
