Classical Greece

8 Day tour includes Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Kea, Delos, Kythira, Monemvasia, Nafplion & Hydra

This tour takes you on a journey to the historic city of Athens, with sights such as the Acropolis, the temple of Olympian Zeus, the Roman and Greek agora as well as the historic center. In Mykonos enjoy the chic bohemian rhythm of the jet set and the iconic Cycladic architecture. In Santorini check out the caldera and the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, buried under tons of ash from a volcanic eruption. In Crete, you’ll be able to marvel at the Minoan palace of Knossos. Kea is a tranquil slice of island paradise with few things to do other than laze about in the beach and explore the craggy mountain slopes. Delos is only accessible as a day trip excursion as it is uninhabited. According to legend, this is the most sacred island in Greece and the archaeological ruins are mesmerizing. Kythera’s location between the Ionian and Aegean seas gives it an authentic feel, as the white sugar cubed houses blend in with the verdant canopy of the island to create a dazzling hue of rainbow colors on the landscape. In Monemvasia, one can marvel at the singular oddity that is the island castle; a big slice of rock fortified and linked to the shore by a causeway. This medieval fortress town is a romantic getaway with scenic views. In Nafplio the sights include 4 medieval Venetian fortifications and many picturesque spots. Hydra is a small but extremely charming island, where no cars are allowed. It’s been a haunt for the glitterati and the intellectual jet set before Mykonos.
