Athens-Piraeus

Day 1 Athens-Piraeus

Ten kilometres southwest of central Athens, Piraeus is dazzling in its scale, its seemingly endless quays filled with ferries, ships and hydrofoils. While technically its own city, it melds into the Athens sprawl, with close to half a million people living in the greater area.

The most attractive quarter lies east around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano harbours. The latter is lined with cafes, restaurants and bars often filled with people who've disembarked from their yachts for the day.

Syros

Day 2 Syros

Sitting in the heart of the Aegean Sea, Syros is a mixture of Cycladic and Venetian architecture. Just imagine whitewashed houses blending with colorful mansions and big churches, surrounded by the Cycladic nature. Dreamy, right? Ideal for families and couples who seek a romantic, yet laid-back holiday destination, Syros has an elegant and nostalgic vibe that enchants every visitor.

Ermoupoli, the capital of Syros island and also the orthodox town of Syros, is an architectural gem! Colorful mansions, neoclassical buildings, imposing orthodox churches and squares, create the most postcard-perfect place in Syros! For a dip into the culture of Ermoupolis, visit the Town Hall building, which was created by Ernst Ziller, Apollo Theater and Pallas cinema.

Taste the famous cheese of Syros, San Mihalis in Ai Mihalis.

Mykonos

Day 3.2 Mykonos

Mykonos is the great glamour island of Greece and flaunts its sizzling St-Tropez-meets-Ibiza style and party-hard reputation. It is the island of modern-day celebrities and not the island of spirits of the past. Sharon Stone and Brad Pitt, Madonna and Mike Jagger, Gina Lollobrigida and Sofia Loren visit quite often– this is a holiday! Enjoy!

Mykonos is the jumping-off point for the archaeological site of the nearby island of Delos.

Mykonos is home to Vioma Organic Farm - a unique farm-to-table experience. It also acts as an organic farm with animals. It prides with organic classical wines rested in oak barrels and provides guided bicycle tours.

Other notable diners include Farma restaurant, Mykonos’ first farm-to-table restaurant, and Kiki's Tavern, where you can snap a sneaky delightful meal at the best traditional Greek diner on the island.

Paros

Day 4 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.

Arrival: 12:00
Departure: Next day 08:00

Naxos

Day 5 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.

 

Arrival: 11:00
Departure: 20:00

6
Ikaria

Day 6 Ikaria

Located on the Eastern Aegean sea, Ikaria is one of the worldwide famous Greek Islands, mainly due to the longevity of its inhabitants and the Ikarian diet.

Its natural beauty is a standout, too, as the wild beauty of Ikaria is breathtaking. Rocky mountains, dramatic gorges, hiking trails, mesmerizing beaches, and rural villages set the scene of a dreamy holiday destination, especially for nature lovers!



Arrival: 07:00
Departure: 19:00

7
Andros

Day 7 Andros

Andros Chora, the island’s capital, is a mixture of Venetian, Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. Palaiopolis, the ancient capital of Andros, the prehistoric Plaka settlement and Zagora settlement are must-visits. 

The natural beauty of this verdant island is divine! The hiking paths that cross Andros Greece, will give you the chance to explore its lush vegetation.
