Athens International Airport
3 Hours Before Flight Time
Your long flight has ended and you have arrived in Greece. Your driver will be awaiting you at the airport with a warm and welcoming smile on his face. He’ll whisk you off to your hotel where you can rest, wash up, and prepare for an evening stroll in the Plaka and a romantic dinner overlooking the Parthenon.
Prepare to be introduced to the remarkable history of Greece. Your private guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you on a journey through time to the age of Athenian dominance over the Ancient world — the time of Pericles and Socrates when glorious civilizations were expressed through marvelous feats of architecture and engineering. Your tour of the Parthenon will be followed by a stimulating stroll through the traditional food markets of downtown Athens. Experience the hustle of the city and the urban and gritty feel of everyday life on the backstreets of Athens in the company of your experienced food connoisseur/guide. A light breakfast is suggested, as you will be nibbling and sampling exotic delicacies at every turn!
Your city break is over, it’s time to leave the crowds of Athens behind and surrender to the Mediterranean sun! Your driver will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the airport. After a short flight, you will arrive on the majestic island of Naxos – one of the best-kept secrets of the Aegean! Naxos is a laid back island, traditional and real in comparison with the others in the Cyclades. Get a glimpse of authentic Greek culture and serene island life. Here, you will find excellent beaches and the clearest waters of all the islands. It’s the perfect island for sailing and water sports, or just lounging under the sun! Discover beautiful hiking paths in the mountains and trails along the beach, organic foods, and exciting outdoor activities on land or sea. This is the ideal island for rest and relaxation, or adventure and excitement!
After a long flight and a couple of days of touring and transfers, it’s time to just lay back on the beach and enjoy the sun. Take the day slowly, beginning with a late breakfast on your balcony overlooking the sea! Spend the morning lying on the beach and playing in the waves. In the early afternoon, you can enjoy a stroll in the quaint “Chora” or main town of Naxos where you can explore the cobblestone walkways and the colorful Venetian era fortifications. Don’t miss the famed “Portara” the remains of the majestic temple of Apollo that guards the entrance to the marina.
Explore Naxos and some of the small Cyclades islands onboard a luxurious catamaran today. Step aboard, get acquainted with the rest of the group, enjoy a cup of coffee, and get ready to set sail. Let us take you to the most beautiful, secluded beaches and coves where you will be able to swim and snorkel in the clear waters. We also provide snorkeling equipment (mask, snorkel, & fins) for everyone and there are many beautiful spots to dive. Our first stop will be at a cove, where a unique cedar forest grows among marvelous sand dunes. Enjoy brunch on board, then sail to a sea cave where you can swim in cool waters under a rock dome and admire the stalactites. You will enjoy a delicious traditional lunch prepared with local products, served with a Greek salad, and accompanied by cold refreshments, ouzo, raki, and wine.
The essence of Naxos is best expressed through the timeless culinary traditions of the island. Since mythical times, Naxos has been admired for its sweet, fragrant wines, olive oils, organically grown greens and vegetables, and “Kitron” the island’s signature lemon liqueur which has been locally produced for generations. Today you will experience all these treats and more through a selection of private guided tours, a panorama if you will, of the island’s treasures. Alternatively, enjoy a “hands on” cooking experience under the guidance of one of the island’s best known local chefs.
The commanding cliffs of Santorini beckon you for the third and final act of this romantic getaway! After breakfast, your driver will pick you up at your hotel, and deliver you to the port where you will board the high-speed ferry for the short hop to Santorini. Upon arrival, you’ll be “rescued” from the confusion of the busy port and whisked off to your luxurious hideaway, your own little corner of paradise overlooking the staggering volcanic crater. After you’ve checked in and had the opportunity to take in the breathtaking views from your private balcony, you can spend the afternoon wandering through the labyrinth of steps and alleys, bright and colorful cave dwellings, blue domed churches. Every corner revealing an even more exquisite view of the Aegean sea, hundreds of feet below.
After a morning of exploration in Fira, the excitement continues with a sunset catamaran cruise. It begins with a welcome aboard cocktail. Your crew will greet you at Vlihada Marina and inform you of the boat’s amenities. Sail past the Ancient City of Akrotiri to the Red and White Beaches, past the Indian Head Mountain and Venetian Lighthouse into the picturesque Caldera. You will visit private bays for swimming and snorkeling, and have the opportunity to swim in waters fed by natural hot springs. A delicious BBQ lunch is freshly prepared and served in a beautiful secluded bay. After lunch, you then sail past the volcanic islands and Aspronisi to Vlihada Marina.
After breakfast, our guide will take you on a tour to the island’s best spots. Encounter an island of beauty and intriguing history as you embark on the Discover Santorini Tour. The archaeological sites, the volcanic beaches, and the tranquil villages are part of a tour that will take you from Ancient Santorini to the medieval era and then to the age of its ascendancy in the 18th century. You’ll visit the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, taste the signature wines of the island at one of the most well-known artisan wineries, walk through the white-washed alleys of Pyrgos, and enjoy unique panoramic views and photographic moments that will last you a lifetime!
Alas, all good things must come to an end. Savor your final Grecian breakfast overlooking the glorious cliffs of Santorini, before heading to the airport for your short flight back to Athens where you can connect with your flight home. It’s not “farewell.” It is just “until we meet again.” Or as we say in Greece, “Tha ta xana poume.”
