Discover the rich heritage of Greece’s capital with your expert local guide. This morning’s tour introduces you to the complex of monuments that most symbolize Athens—the Acropolis.

After breakfast transfer to the airport for your flight to Santorini. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to the Santo Winery for lunch with a selection of their excellent wines.

Dinner tonight is at the hotel.

Santorini

This morning’s tour begins with a visit to Fira, the capital of Santorini, where you can walk to the edge of the caldera for a spectacular view.

Then ride north to Oia, the island’s most picturesque village, and view white-washed houses, windmills, and caves perched along rugged cliffs. Stroll through the charming narrow streets with your guide as he or she tells you about the history of the blue-domed churches and introduces you to a selection of shops, art galleries, and tavernas.

DAY 6, October 07, 2020 | Santorini

Depart on a full day island tour which begins with a visit to Akrotiri, one of the most important and well-preserved archaeological settlements in the Aegean – it was inhabited from Neolithic times until its destruction in 1500 BC. Afterwards drive to Perivolas Beach, famous for its black lava sand, and have lunch at the Seaside restaurant. This afternoon head up to the monastery of Prophet Elias, which dates from 1711 AD, which sits atop the highest point in the island at 1850 ft. From here you can enjoy wonderful panoramic views across the island. This evening enjoy dinner at a charming nearby restaurant.

DAY 8, October 09, 2020 | Mykonos

Mykonos has a second traditional settlement called Áno Merá situated around the historic monastery of Panaia Tourliani; it offers a taste of what life is like in a typical Cycladic village.
