LIMASSOL

Day 1 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...

Day 2 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.

The remotes Island of Greece

Aristocratic Neoclassical Mansions, Red Fortresses, Phantasmagorical Caves and Sapphire Waters in a Lilliputian Island.

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!

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.

SANTORINI

Day 6 SANTORINI

This island houses the largest sea volcano in the world. Part of its crater went under water during an eruption, thus creating a caldera – a funnel filled with sea water. The resulting intense tsunami led to the sunset of the Minoan civilization. There is a theory that it was exactly this tsunami that sunk Atlántida (also known as Atlantis). The edge of the caldera is an upright rock, approximately 300 meters high. One may get to the top on foot, conquering 687 steps, ride a mountain road lined with stones, or take a funicular. Once up at the height of 220 meters above sea level, you will find yourself in the most beautiful town of Fira – the capital of Santorini. Picturesque views of the town attract cinema directors, painters and photographers from all over the world. Not surprisingly, people say that all most beautiful movies of Greece were made here – snow-white houses, blue roofs and thrilling views of the sea and sky merging together.

All sunsets at Santorini are as unique as the colors of the sea before the sun sets, and they never repeat themselves. The color of the sky becomes supernatural, and along with the views of the waves, the shape of the clouds, the smells and the wind – all come together to create a sense of magic. Add to this incredible multicolored beaches with volcano sand and you get one of the most wonderful places on Earth!

NAFPLIO

Day 8 NAFPLIO

Only 2 hours drive from Athens, Nafplion town has an intense Medieval atmosphere. A walk around the narrow paved streets of the Old Town is like a trip to the past. On top of a hill above Nafplion, there is the strong fortress of Palamidi with an amazing view of the sea. At the entrance of the port, there is a small islet with a fortress that used to protect the town from naval attacks. Nafplio was briefly the capital of Greece before the seat of power was shifted to Athens. At a first glance, Nafplio looks like an Italian city because of its architecture and the colourful houses. More fundamentally, Nafplio has a quite an interesting architecture, with many traces of 18th century European towns, Byzantine and Ottoman influences. Many of the old town's buildings date back to two hundred years ago.

Nafplion Greece is a popular weekend destination all year round, while its lovely beach resorts make it a great place for summer holidays, too. Tolo is the most popular summer resort close to the town, with a long sandy beach and relaxing atmosphere.
