Paros

Day 2 Paros

Paros is an island for every one: famous beaches varying from popular and vibrant to secluded, traditional Cycladic architecture, vivid nightlife, enchanting rural villages, and historical monuments.

The two main villages, Parikia and Naoussa, are the heart of the island’s nightlife beats. Full of traditional taverns, luxurious restaurants and sophisticated bars, Parikia and Naoussa overflow with young crowds every night. For tranquility go to traditional villages of Lefkes and Marpissa. 

The island is famous for one thing in particular: its beaches! Huge, sandy, with crystal clear waters and many facilities. Santa Maria, Golden Beach Paros, Punta, and Kolymbithres are some of the most famous beaches in Paros. However, there are also many secluded beaches, for those who seek privacy! 

Paros has also ideal conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing, thanks to “Meltemi” wind. Every summer it hosts the Professional Windsurfing World Cup.

Historical monuments include most significant early church in the Aegean, the awe-inspiring Panagia Ekatontapiliani (Church of 100 Doors). Or you could climb to the Venetian castle at the port and visit the Byzantine Road at Lefkes.

Astypalaia

Day 3 Astypalaia

“The bank of the Gods”

Astypalaia – or Astropalia as the locals call their island in their own dialect – is a lovely island that you will never forget. Thanks to its secluded location, it has managed to stay off the radar and has emerged as a great alternative destination. The Venetian Castle on the top of a hill in Chora, traditional windmills and whitewashed houses create a magical setting that never fails to seduce visitors!

Astypalea beaches are mostly unorganized and secluded, offering the perfect setting for those who seek privacy and want to unwind away. Two of the most beautiful beaches of the island can be reached by the tourist boats which set off from Pera Yalos and Maltezana. These beaches are Kaminakia, where there is a tavern which serves boiled goat (stew), an island speciality, and Vatses, where there is a cave with stalactites and stalagmites.

Once upon a time the castle of Astypalaia had a key that was used to lock the island's belles in and out of the reach of visitors. Now-days on the other hand Astypalaia Island is wide open and shows its beauties as its inhabitants are welcoming to visitors who soon became friends and will come again!

Rhodes

Day 4 Rhodes

Island of Roses

Rhodes is one of the largest and most fertile of the Greek Islands, and is one of the most visited because of its combination of beaches, archaeological sites, and extensive medieval town.

The rock-rose is so prolific here that it has been named the 'Island of Roses,' though modern scholars doubt the ancient theory that the island's name comes from the Greek word for rose. While the northern coast is renowned for its lively tourist resorts the south offers tranquil beaches and a slower, more simple pace of life.

Miles of sandy and pebble beaches, picturesque harbours, a sea of impressive depth, deeply shaded valleys, green mountains, dazzling white villages, archaeological monuments and beautiful ruins from all periods of time are the main hallmarks of this beautiful island. Its capital, the magnificent medieval city of Rhodes, is the capital of the prefecture of the Dodecanese. Rhodes has been proclaimed as a monument of global heritage by UNESCO.

Kastelorizo

Day 5 Kastelorizo

The remotes Island of Greece

Aristocratic Neoclassical Mansions, Red Fortresses, Phantasmagorical Caves and Sapphire Waters in a Lilliputian Island.
On the easternmost edge of Greece, one will have the opportunity to explore the colourful island of Kastelorizo. Kastelorizo is a well-kept secret, a buried hidden treasure and a hideaway escape in the Aegean waiting for you to discover it. Just off the coast of Asia Minor, the remotest island of Greece might lack in size, but it replenishes in landscapes and colours; besides they say less is more. Kastelorizo is a true getaway escape. Dive in the sapphire waters of the biggest underwater cave of the country, hop into a boat to visit the isle of Ro, admire the neoclassical houses of the seaside promenade, taste the fresh fish of the fishermen at the seaside taverns and climb up to the Red Castle to enjoy the panoramic views! Kastelorizo will charm you from the first moment, as it is blessed from an atmospheric oasis found in few places in the world. Dare to flirt with this true experience!

Day 6 at sea

Whole day TALL SHIP sailing

While roving the sea, we will do our best to let you immerse into the genuine atmosphere of marine travel. We start with a tour of the ship, succeeded with the Bridge tour and the Engine tour. And we sincerely recommend you took part in our exclusive Marine Activities: children and adults alike will admire tying sailor’s knots under the Boatswain’s guidance; why not try yourself at mast climbing; the Captain and the Officers give regular master-classes on celestial navigation, sails setting, and probably the most exciting of all – you can put your hands on the steering-wheel and run the huge ship yourself like Captain Sparrow, basking in the feeling of freedom.

Limassol

Day 7 Limassol

Limassol is the second largest town in Cyprus. Apart from being a major tourist destination, it is also a principal hub for international business in Cyprus. This gives Limassol a cosmopolitan feel.

A many-kilometer stretch of coastline, from Pissouri to Governor’s Beach, makes up one of Limassol's greatest advantages. Whether you are seeking a cosmopolitan atmosphere or a remote location, a family-oriented beach or one suitable for games and late night parties, there are dozens of beaches in the city and province of Limassol that cover all preferences for relaxation or water activities.

Beautiful attractions, from ancient kingdoms to medieval churches, and from the neoclassical buildings of the city center to locations of natural beauty, combined with unique options for accommodation, wellness, and activities, all come together to create a diverse experience both in the city and countryside of Limassol.

Don't just see the city, experience it. Limassol crackles with its own unique energy. It is historical. It is cosmopolitan. It is exciting. It is wild. But above all, it is everything you could want it to be...
