Greek Island Dreams, 40's - 60's Singles Vacation -

Needs a location

Greek Island Dreams
40's - 50's and 60's and more!! Singles Vacation
Athens - Mykonos - Santorini - Crete

Is your dream vacation to visit Greece, ferry from Greek island to Greek island, see all the amazing sites, spend time on beautiful beaches? Then this is the Greece singles vacation for you! Explore the Acropolis in Athens, drive around Mykonos island on a jeep safari, see the amazing sunset in Oia, Santorini and visit the ancient ruins of the Palace of Knosos in Crete. You will get to do all this and more on our Greek Island Dreams vacation - Plus spend time on beautiful Greek beaches.

Vacation Day 1 - Athens, Greece
Arrive at Athens airport (**See Flight information below) and be met and transferred to the group's hotel, located around the corner from the Plaka shopping and near all the ancient sites. Our singles vacation begins at 3:00pm when we meet and greet with our tour leader and the other single and solo travelers for our private tour of the Acropolis. A leisurely 10-minute walk up the pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou leads to the Acropolis of Athens, crowned by the Parthenon with its spectacular views over the city below. The Acropolis (Akropolis) means "city on a hill" and dates from the 5th century BC. Notable structures within the Acropolis include the Temple of Athena Nike, the earliest fully Ionic temple on the site, built between 427 and 424 BC. Tonight enjoy the nightly atmosphere of the Plaka as we dine at a local Greek restaurant.

Vacation Day 2 - Athens to Mykonos
This morning we ferry through the Cycladic islands to the island of Mykonos, the jewel of the Mediterranean with beautiful beaches, chic boutiques and party night life. Hundreds of tiny chapels dot this blue and whitewashed island with its beautiful windmills and amazing sunsets. Upon reaching Mykonos we will be transferred to our hotel, check-in and get ready for a walking tour of Mykonos Town, also known as Chora. We will stroll the narrow cobblestone streets of a town that was designed so pirates would get lost. The early evening scene is centered on Little Venice where we can sip a cocktail at one of the many bars and cafes which are so close to the water's edge that our feet get soaked when a boat passes. We will watch the sunset at the most famous windmills in Greece and have dinner (not included) in one of the many cafes. Mykonos attracts a broad clientele - celebrities, politicians, the beautiful people and ordinary mortals all flock here to see and be seen at the glitzy "anything goes" clubs for which the island is now world famous.
