Incredible ancient monuments, idyllic islands, crystal clear waters, white domed cycladic homes, delicious food and beautiful sunsets. Greece offers something for everyone - from history buffs, through to sun seekers, and the hospitality and open-heartedness of the Greeks’ will make a visitor feel they are among friends.
Embrace Historic Athens
There is so much depth and richness to Athens. The best way to experience it is with a locally guided walking tour, where you’ll get to learn more about the fascinating ancient history of this incredible city. The Plaka, one of the most attractive districts of Athens, features small winding streets and is only a short walk from the famous Acropolis where you will enjoy incredible views of Athens.
Eat like a local
Wine n’dine (and dance) at a taverna! Taste the local Mediterranean flavours, where the wine is cheaper and the meals are richer in flavour. Greek cuisine involves plenty of freshly cooked seafood, meats, gyros, bread, moussaka and salad, so you can feast to your hearts content feeling (relatively) guilt free.
Explore the island of Santorini
Feed your wanderlust by visiting the infamous island of Santorini – you will be overwhelmed with its picturesque beauty. The volcanic landscape and white washed buildings set against the deep blue Aegean Sea is simply stunning. Visit the town of Fira, shop for souvenirs, head to a winery and finish the day by watching the sunset in Oia (pronounced ‘i a’).
Take a boat ride
Be sure to jump on a Greek Islands boat cruise which will take you to the volcanic island of Nea Kamini. There you’ll cruise past lava formations and get up close to the active crater. This is a perfect swim stop to soak up the atmosphere of the islands.
Finish the day with a spectacular sunset
Wherever you are in Greece, whether it’s Santorini, Mykonos, or Ios, the sunset is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Santorini, however gives you the ultimate ‘pinch me, I’m dreaming’ moment. The best place to witness a magical sunset is in the village of Oia. Grab yourself a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.
