Day by Day Itinerary
Welcome to Athens! Your Greek honeymoon kicks off in the birthplace of western civilization. You’ll be met by private transfer upon your arrival into Athens International Airport for the drive to your hotel in the Greek capital. After checking in, relax after a long flight or stretch your legs by getting a preview of the city. Sip some strong Greek coffee at a sidewalk café and then you might take an energizing hike up Philopappos Hill, passing multiple historic sites. If you time it right, you’ll be able to take in a spectacular view of a colorful sunset over the city at the top.
Today a private tour will bring you back through time, exploring three of top spots or ancient ruins. Join our local “insider” guide, immersing yourself in ancient Greece, touring the iconic Acropolis and its 5th-century BC monuments like the Parthenon and Temple of Athena Nike. Afterwards, you’ll get a good perspective of what you experienced by visiting the Acropolis Museum, one of the world’s greatest antiquities institutions. It hosts significant finds from the sanctuaries on Acropolis hill to bring it all to life. Next, your guide will take you on a drive to witness a panorama of landmarks, including Plaka and the Roman Agora.
Your private driver will meet you at your Athens hotel to bring you Piraeus port for your ferry ride to Milos. Take private transfer to your accommodation here with the rest of the day to enjoy at your leisure. Milos is famous for its incredible landscapes in striking hues of greens and blues, with a diverse array of impressive beaches, from white sandy stretches to colorful pebbly shores. This is also the island where the Venus de Milo statue was discovered, home to many interesting historic sites, including an ancient Roman theater. Relax this evening as you’ll have a full day tour tomorrow.
A full-day private tour of the island begins with a visit to one of the top spots in the Greek isles, Sarakiniko beach with its smooth white volcanic rock contrasting stunningly against the blue sea, appearing like an alien world. You’ll head to the Catacombs, the site where Venus de Milo was found and stroll through the picturesque fishing village of Klima with its long strip of multicolored traditional fishermen homes along Milos Bay. Cap it off by spending a couple of hours at a beautiful, organized beach with restaurants and beach bars where you can relax, swim or enjoy other water sports.
You’ll have the day to yourself to relax or take advantage of the many things to do on Milos. Just a few of the options including taking a boat tour for a perspective of the island from the water, including time to swim in caves. Or visit one of the many natural hot springs to soak while surrounded by the breathtaking scenery. There’s a spa in Adamas where you can enjoy the Lakkos baths for an especially unforgettable, unique soak inside of a cave, with the warm, soothing water ranging from about 95 to 106 degrees Fahrenheit/35 to 41 Celsius.
Catch a ferry this morning, this time to Santorini, one of the most popular islands in the world among honeymooners and other romance-seekers. Upon your arrival, you’ll be met by your private driver for transfer to your hotel where you can enjoy the remainder of the day at your leisure. You’ll find many shops, cafes, and bars along the cobbled streets in the capital, Fira, set right along the edge of the caldera. The views are breathtaking – you might relax with some island wine and enjoy them or explore the Historical and Cultural Archaeological Museum to learn about the island’s history.
Food and wine enthusiasts will be thrilled with today’s tour. You’ll get to sample island’s crisp volcanic wines at a winery before learning how to prepare delicious island cuisine in a hands-on cooking class. Of course, you can dig into the results of the fresh-cooked meal you helped to prepare afterwards. At the conclusion of your cooking/tasting experience you’ll be given a booklet that includes the recipes you helped make. This ideal souvenir is an especially useful one, allowing you to bring home some of Santorini’s goodness, cooking dishes for your friends and family to share the island flavors you enjoyed here.
On your last full day in Santorini, enjoy a leisurely breakfast and a relaxing day further exploring Oia and Fira with perhaps some last minute shopping. In the afternoon our guide will pick you up from your hotels for a semi-private sunset sailing cruise along the cliffs on Santorini. Whilst on the luxury catamaran you will get to visit the red and white beaches of Santorini, the Venetian Lighthouse and more. The boat is fitted with swimming and snorkelling equipment for you to enjoy a couple of swimming stops. Back on board you will enjoy a freshly prepared BBQ meal with drinks as you enjoy a truly spectacular sunset.
Its time to bid farewell to Santorini as you enjoy your last breakfast overlooking the stunning caldera. Our private driver will transfer you to Santorini Airport for your return flight home.
