What You’ll Love…

The History – Discover the beauty of Greece’s ancient cities

Begin your journey in Athens, the classic capital of Greece, also referred to as the cradle of Western Civilisation and the birthplace of democracy. A guided tour begins with a panoramic drive through the city centre, followed by visits to the Panathenaic Stadium, the ruins of the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch. Finish the day at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed site of the Acropolis, the ancient citadel home to world-famous monuments including the Parthenon and the Erechtheion. You’ll also enjoy some leisure time in Athens, allowing you to explore its many shops, restaurants and cafés.

Take the scenic coastal road to Olympia, visiting the Acropolis of Mycenae and the Tomb of Atreus en route, before reaching the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Explore the Sanctuary of Olympian Zeus, before continuing to Delphi via the plains of Eliad and Achaia.

Archaeological wonders await at the excavated site of Delphi, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site abundant with ancient ruins and featuring the Sacred Way, leading to the Temple of Apollo, which sits on the southern slopes of Parnassos Mountain.

Reach the holy place of Meteora, one of Greece's most beautiful sites, an inspiring and sensational setting of rock formations with a series of monasteries perched in splendid isolation on top of incredible natural pillars.

The Islands – Discover Mykonos, Delos and Santorini, gems of the Aegean Sea

Travel via ferry to the island of Mykonos, where white-washed buildings dazzle against a backdrop of turquoise ocean. A guided walking tour will introduce you to its unique charm, with winding streets taking you to the island’s churches and windmills, and its famous ‘Little Venice’ area, comprising of houses and cafés built at water level. Two free evenings and a full day at leisure here allow for plenty of time to sample Mykonos’ nightlife, shop its many boutiques, relax at the beaches or simply watch the world go by at a harbourside taverna.

Spend a morning in Delos, an island with history dating back to early Ionian civilization. Here, visit the Sacred Harbour and Sacred Way, leading to temples dedicated to Apollo and Artemis, and the island’s museum, housing a host of impressive artefacts.

Your journey ends in Santorini, an island of snow-white buildings, colourful cliffs and sparkling blue water. Delve into the production of Therian volcanic wines with a tour at two local family-owned vineyards, ending with a wine tasting with your fellow travellers and a dinner of local specialities. A tour of Santorini concludes your time on this beautiful island, visiting the former Bronze Age settlement of Akrotiri and Megalochori, one of the island’s most traditional villages.

An included internal flight from Santorini to Athens takes you back to the capital for your international flight home (please note, international flights are at own expense).
