Day by Day Itinerary
Welcome to Athens, one of the oldest cities in the world, widely considered to be the birthplace of modern civilization. Begin with your arrival into Athens International Airport where you’ll be met by private transfer for the drive into the city where you’re sure to be gazing up at its iconic sights in wonder.
After checking into your hotel, enjoy exploring independently, strolling the streets to discover hidden gems while enjoying glimpses of the Acropolis and Parthenon in between. Enjoy unwinding with some tasty Greek coffee in one of the cafes while people watching for some insight into the locals’ daily lives.
Catch the ferry to beautiful Naxos, one of the most stunningly diverse islands in the Cyclades. Walk the waterfront to discover all sorts of enticing eateries and shops and then head to one of the many fantastic beaches, with the sands here bright and whiter than any other island.
Edged by crystal-clear aquamarine waters, you’ll have the perfect opportunity for a refreshing dip – they say the saltwater is healing – and perhaps some sunbath while surrounded by the magnificent scenery. You might want to take the short walk to the Gate of the Apollo Temple that you saw at the harbor entrance and then enjoy dinner by the water – a delectable dessert like baklava is always included.
Special thematic cruises can be enjoyed from Naxos that allow you to enjoy an unforgettable sale that combines that spectacular scenery with the opportunity to indulge passions like yoga, water sports and wine. A yoga sunset excursion is especially popular among yoga practitioners and wine enthusiasts.
Hop aboard a luxurious catamaran and practice poses with a certified instructor as you take in the incredible views and the salty sea breeze. The trip is timed to catch one of the island’s glorious sunsets – you might be able to gaze at its colors splashed across the Aegean as you perform the mountain or warrior pose.
Journey to Crete by ferry today, gliding across the brilliant turquoise waters of the Aegean before enjoying the rest of the day at leisure. This beautiful island of nature and history offers something for everyone. If you want to get active, there are plenty of beaches for swimming in warm and shallow cerulean waters, including seductive Elafonsi with its pink sands.
The beaches bring opportunities for water sports like sea kayaking, snorkeling, diving, surfing and more, and there are also mountains for hiking and Minoan ruins for exploring. If a meditative experience is what you’re after, there are some great small coves that provided secluded spots for quiet contemplation.
Another day of sailing, this trip is one of the best ways to experience the beauty of Crete. Hop aboard your elegant vessel in Agios Nikolaos harbor to cruise to Elounda, gliding across picturesque Mirambello Bay. Admire the gorgeous coastline and enjoy swim and snorkel stops to discover the magnificent underwater world, watching for marine life.
Our expert skipper and crew will regale you with sailing stories and tales about the area, and you’ll be able to jump in and help sail if you wish too, guided by the skipper, of course. We’ll stop at Elounda to take in a close-up view of Spinalonga island and enjoy a stop for a Cretan lunch paired with the local white wine.
Enjoy a relaxing day on Crete, taking advantage of the spa at your lavish resort in Elounda. It’s the perfect way to soothe sore muscles and pamper yourself, perhaps with a calming and detoxifying aromatherapy massage or a deep tissue massage. Facials and body treatments like a detox body wrap are popular too, and you might want to spend time soaking up the warmth in a hammam.
You might even be able to join a special wellness program on a variety of topics like sleeping better to improve your mood and enjoy more beautiful skin. Of course, you’ll have a wide range of other experiences available onsite to choose from as well if you want to get more active.
Prepare to return to Athens, catching a flight back to the city either this morning or at mid-day. Once there, take time to settle into your hotel room and then join an afternoon tour of the Parthenon on Acropolis Hill. Your expert local guide will share stories behind the monuments which also include the Erechtheon, the temple of Athena Nike and the monumental entrance to the Acropolis, the Propylaea.
This is your opportunity to marvel at them up close, admiring these universal symbols of civilization that form the greatest artistic and architectural complex provided by Greek Antiquity to the world, gaining insight into the lives of ancient Greeks.
Departure day has arrived. After you’ve packed your bags and enjoyed breakfast, private transfer will bring you to Athens International Airport.
