10 day trip in Greece staying in traditional tourist class hotels
Day 1 Athens
Welcome to Athens, one of the most breathtaking cities in the world. Our hotel is located close to all the sights and sounds of Athens. In the evening we meet up with our fellow passengers and Trip Leader. Following our trip briefing itâ€™s time to head out and sample some of the nightlife.
Day 2 Athens
After breakfast, we explore Athens with a walking tour. Our Trip Leader shows us the major sights in town, including the vibrant Plaka area and its markets, the world famous Acropolis and Syntagma Square. We also see the changing of the guards. Free time this afternoon before we join the locals for traditional Greek dancing and local cuisine. (B,D)
Day 3 Athens to Mykonos
Itâ€™s an early start today as we take a private transfer to the port of Piraeus to catch the ferry to the first of the beautiful islands. We pass many idyllic islands â€“ it is no wonder this part of Greece is so popular. We arrive at Mykonos, the most cosmopolitan of the Greek Cycladic Islands. The afternoon is free to discover the island at our leisure. There is plenty to do on Mykonos â€“ shop, eat, relax â€“ something to suit every taste or mood. In the evening we watch the famous sunset over the windmills in the area of Mykonos town known as â€˜little Venice.â€™ The legendary nightlife, for which Mykonos is justly famous for, is ours to enjoy!

Day 4 Mykonos
A free day on the island. Why not kick back and relax on one of the many superb beaches or check out the sights such as Kastro, the complex of churches. There is an optional half day excursion to the nearby island of Delos, the traditional birthplace of the sun god Apollo. (B)
Day 5 Mykonos to Paros
A short ferry ride to Paros. Our hotel in Paros is a short walk from the beach. A walking tour around the harbour and through the narrow streets of the town gets us orientated. The afternoon is free to explore the island on our own. (B)
Day 6 Paros
One of the lesser known islands of the Cyclades, Paros exudes a laid-back charm that is hard to beat. Relax on the beach and top up the tan, visit the church of Ekatontapiliani, or visit Naousa, Kolimbithres and the important sights on the island â€“ choices, choices! Or a short bus ride to the village of Lefkes for the views and the photos. (B)
Day 7 Paros to Santorini
Today we catch the ferry past many small islands and arrive at the island of Santorini, with its remarkable volcanic caldera. Our hotel has amazing views over the plain to the sea. In the afternoon we have a tour visiting some of the interesting and important sights of the island. The sunset at Oia makes for some memorable photos with the sun reflecting off the white houses like snow against the dark volcanic stone cliffs. (B)
Day 8 Santorini
A free day on the island. We can discover Thira â€“ the capital, Kamenes, Ancient Thira, or take a boat trip to the volcanic crater and swim in the warm sea. Alternatively relax by the pool and await the next sunset â€“ life doesnâ€™t get much better than this! (B)
