Naxos

Day 3 Naxos

The largest of the Cyclades, Naxos packs a lot of bang for its buck. Its main city of Hora (known also as Naxos) has a gorgeous waterfront and a web of steep cobbled alleys below its hilltop kastro, all filled with the hubbub of tourism and shopping. You needn’t travel far, though, to find isolated beaches, atmospheric mountain villages and ancient sites.

Naxos was a cultural centre of Classical Greece and Byzantium, and Venetian and Frankish influences also left their mark. Its high mountains form rain clouds, and consequently Naxos is more fertile and green than most of the other Cyclades islands. It produces olives, grapes, figs, citrus fruit, corn and potatoes. Mt Zeus (also known as Mt Zas; 1004m) is the Cyclades’ highest peak and is the central focus of the island’s mountainous interior, where you will find enchanting villages such as Halki and Apiranthos.

Astypalaia

Day 4 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!

Symi

Day 5 Symi

Main town features a neoclassical harbour of pastel-coloured buildings. Beyond the town, you’ll find coastal hikes, coves ideal for swimming and historic sights, from the elegant Panormitis monastery to castle ruins.

The entrance of the horseshoe-shaped port is dominated by Roloi, a clock tower. The Town Hall, the cathedral, the square and the Naval Museum of Symi are the main attractions on this side. At the location Myloi, visit Pontikokastro (the castle of mice!); there is a prehistoric tomb as well as remnants of old mills, used in the past for crushing grains into flour, yet some of them are households today. Behind the highest mountain of the island (560m) lies a beautiful cypress and pine tree forest.
The forest at Kourkouniotis is home to 120 byzantine wine presses of which eleven have been restored. The island held a fine tradition in winemaking up to the 18th c.
The most significant event is Symi’s Festival that hosts a large number of cultural events such as classical and modern music concerts, dance, theater, cinema, and literature evenings from July to September every year.

Kastelorizo

Day 6 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!

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...
