Itinerary + Map

DAY 1 Athens
Your Aegean and Adriatic adventure begins with a transfer from the airport to your hotel. Spend the evening getting acquainted with this ancient capital.

Stay at:
Wyndham Grand Athens (4 star)

DAY 2 Athens
Amidst a backdrop of architectural ruins, embark on a comprehensive sightseeing tour of bustling Athens. Visit the magnificent Acropolis where you can admire the Temple of Athena Nike, as well as the Propylaea. The beautiful geometry of the Parthenon will come into view, as well as the Erechtheion, with its renovated portico of the Caryatides and the Pandroseion. You will visit the hill of Filopapos, walk through narrow cobblestone streets of the Plaka and visit the New Acropolis Museum. B

DAY 3 Athens – Santorini
This morning you will be transferred to Pireus port for your high speed ferry to the island of Santorini. On arrival in Santorini you will be met and transferred to your hotel, with the remainder of your day at leisure. B

Stay at:
El Greco Resort & Spa (4 star)

DAY 4/5 Santorini
Over the next two days you have free time to explore the magic of Santorini. Formed 3,500 years ago by a massive volcanic eruption that half-submerged the island and gave it its distinctive half-crescent shape and steep cliffs, today the island is a tourist paradise. Relax by the pool; wander the charming streets of Fira, a stunning cluster of whitewashed buildings perched precariously atop the cliffs, or visit nearby Oia with its breathtaking picture-postcard views over the Aegean Sea. Santorini is an experience not to be missed. B

DAY 6 Santorini – Folegandros
Travel just one hour by ferry from Santorini to Folegandros. Named after the son of King Minos, this off-the-beaten-path island is an authentic gem and one of the most appealing villages of the Cyclades. B

Stay at:
Anemi Hotel (5 star)

DAY 7/8 Folegandros
Spend the next two days exploring Folegandros with its small churches entwined into the rock face, immaculate villages and frescoes, small plazas and rustic cafes serving mouthwatering cuisine and playing the music of sirtaki. Walk around the clifftop Hora (Folegandros Town), with its maze of pedestrian only streets lined with the iconic white houses of the Cyclades draped in colourful bougainvillea. A visit to the Orthodox Church of Panagia is worth the walk for the magnificent views over Hora and stunning Aegean sunsets. B
