This is a repeat of our last Greece trip which is a land-based island hopping trip with flights and a ferry between the islands.
We'll land in Athens on a Wednesday night. With our hotel just minutes from the famous Platka you will enjoy strolling, shopping and eating. The next morning we'll enjoy a leisurely tour the famous Acropolis and home of the Parthanon. The rest of the day will be at your leisure.
On Friday morning we’ll fly over to the island of Crete. Crete is the birthplace of the first European civilization, the Minoan, which flourished between 3000 BC and 1200 BC. We will organize optional tours to some of the key places including Knossos.
We will be staying in Chania (see arrow on map) which is in and of itself a work of art and known as the Veniceof Crete. Much of the old town district of Chania was developed around its harbor, which was built by the Venetians during the 14th century. Its lighthouse still proudly overlooks the Mediterranean.
After our 3-nights on Crete we'll be ready for the next stop - Mykonos for the next 3 nights. We will be flying over via Athens. This island is not only picturesque with it’s white buildings and blue trim, the narrow meandering streets with cutes hops and restaurants and famous windmills, it’s also THE place for nightlife with many Europeans who come here. We’ll have an optional tour set up that will take us on a 45 minute boat ride to the island of Delos, which is an entire city of ruins h no current inhabitants.
You don't have to plan too much on this island as the old town is just a short walk from our hotel and makes for a nice, relaxing way to spend some time strolling and taking photos. Our hotel is beautiful with amazing views of the sea. Once again, early sign ups will be rewarded with the better view rooms.
After our 3-nights on Mykonos it will be time for our last and most anticipated stop, the island of Santorini. We'll be taking a ferry which is smooth and only about a 2-hour trip. There is not a more magical island in the world You will absolutely fall in love with it. We will have optional tours set up including an all day tour by bus and then boat visiting the caldera via a nice wooden boat and even swimming to a natural hot springs!
We depart Santorini on Sunday morning back to Athens and fly back that same day. It's great air wth Delta. This is the ideal introduction to the jewels of the Aegean.
