This independent getaway lets you explore the incomparable attractions of Athens and the Aegean islands of Mykonos and Santorini with convenience and at your own pace. Hotel stays, train and ferry travel, and sightseeing tours in Athens and on each island are prearranged but the rest is up to you. English-speaking hosts in each locale will be glad to offer advice on excursions, dining and entertainment.
Begin in Athens where so many sights on your hop-on/hop-off bus tour will transport you back to the 5th century B.C.: See the Temple of Zeus, the Temple of Wingless Victory and Hadrian's Arch – all magnificent treasures from the Classical age. But of course the highlight is a visit to the Acropolis, the mighty rock formation standing 230 feet above the city and still dominating the modern bustle of Athens with its serene presence. Here you'll find the incomparable Parthenon along with stunning views of the city.
Depart Athens by ferry and head to Mykonos, where you can succumb to the relaxed ambience and carefree charm of island life. Mykonos dazzles with its sugar cube houses, white-washed windmills, exciting nightlife and excellent beaches. Fishing boats cast colorful reflections in some of bluest waters you'll find anywhere. A coach tour will show you the island’s highlights then you’re free to relax and enjoy.
Conclude your trip in spectacular Santorini, an island archipelago formed from a single volcanic cone that erupted in the second millennium B.C., burying what might have been the civilization of Atlantis. The island's population now lives atop the steep walls of the partially submerged caldera and from its cliffs offer some of the most famous views in the Mediterranean. Experience the island's cliff top restaurants, breathtaking views and amazing sunsets. Truly an unforgettable destination!
