Discover the Cyclades islands with whitewashed houses and cobbled streets, historic monuments revealing a long-lasting culture, great gastronomy and so much more during this 13-Day Getaway from Athens.

Highlights

Discover Athens boasting many modern and ancient monuments like the Temple of Zeus, the Old Stadium, Syntagma square, the Parliament and the Tomb to the Unknown soldier, the Academy, the Library, and the National Gardens

The combination of history, white-washed Cycladic houses, exotic beaches and of course good food combined with warm-hearted hospitality grants Milos the title of one of the top holiday destinations in Greece.

Explore Naxos, the largest and greenest island of Cyclades in the Aegean Sea. This island has been inhabited since 5.000 BC and carries a vast amount of history on its shoulders: ancient Greek ruins, old churches & monasteries and the Venetian castles.

Sail from Santorini and visit its many beaches : Red Beach in Akrotiri, with the red rocks and the dark pebbles, the White Beach, accessible only by boat and the Mesa Pigadi, an incredible swimming spot!

Be fascinated by Sarakiniko, an inlet of pure white rock formations sculpted by volcanic eruptions. The beautiful, otherworldly spot is one of the island’s many geological wonders and perhaps one of the most photographed places in the Cyclades!

Enjoy a tour of the city including the Parthenon, Constitution Square and the Panathenaic Stadium, the place from where the Olympic flame starts its journey to the cities of the Olympic Games.

Begin your Cycladic island getaway with Paros, a beloved holiday destination, beaches, villages and a 6th century church, Panayia Ekatontapyliani, also called Katapoliani. The name "Ekatontapyliani" means the church with 100 gates ("Ekato Pyles" in Greek), one of which is a secret one!

Next find yourself in the largest and greenest Cycladic Island of Naxos, with beautiful old churches, monasteries, Venetian castles and crystal clear waters. Sail away to Santorini, legend of the lost city of Atlantis, with stunning sunsets and picturesque sugar cubed buildings.

Day 2
Athens

After breakfast, wander the landmarks of Historic Athens including the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum focused on the findings from the Acropolis.

Ancient yet modern, classic yet creative, traditional yet constantly changing… Athens is a city of memorable contrasts. The past and the present of Athens unfolds before your eyes while we drive around the city's highlight spots and monuments like the Temple of Zeus, the Old Stadium, Syntagma square, the Parliament and the Tomb to the Unknown soldier, the Academy, the Library, and the National Gardens.

On the natural fortress of the Acropolis, reinforced by the hand of man, stand the Propylaea, the temple of the Winged Victory, Erechtheion with the Porch of the Caryatids and, towering over all, and the majestic Parthenon.  A winding path leads to the treasure of antiquity. Visible are the relics of the civilization of which we are the proud inheritors.  A few meters away from the Acropolis entrance and the Ancient Theatre of Dionysos, the New Acropolis Museum, built on pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, looks like hanging between the past and the present of Athens. 

Designed by Bernard Tschumi and Mihalis Fotiades, the new Acropolis Museum has a total area of 25,000 square meters, with exhibition space of over 14,000 square meters. Made of stainless steel, glass, marble and concrete, materials typical of the Athenian environment, the new museum has a direct view of the Acropolis. With bioclimatic planning, which gives ideal lighting and heating conditions, the New Museum offers all the amenities expected in an international museum of the 21st century.

We will proceed on foot to visit different spots taste local products like olive oil, honey, cheese, wine, vinegar, liquor, and sweets, all made by small producers from all over Greece. Next, it’s a treat from the street, as you sample a koulouri, one of the all-time classic snacks on the go and then a cup of authentic Greek coffee in a wonderful old café.  After this, get ready to duck into a boisterous visit to the central fish and meat market, where butchers and fishmongers compete for the attention of Athens’ serious food shoppers. The old Central Market of Athens (Varvakios Agora) that is located exactly in the heart of the city, and learn from your guide about the city culinary history. We will next visit specialty food stores to try local produce cold cuts, and discover some of the hidden stores to purchase tantalizingly fresh fruit, Greek olives, cheese, ham and other alluring deli produce, local wine, aged aromatized vinegar, organic olive oil and honey.  Around the corner is the famous spice street of Athens, lined with traditional herb shops that also carry amazing specialty meats and other traditional delicacies. After that you will end up having a lunch, tasting the famous Greek souvlaki!!  & traditional spinach pie. Finally, a last stop to taste of the Greek specialty loukoumades (Greek donuts with honey syrup and almonds) and return you back to your hotel.

Overnight stay in Athens at the Acropolian Spirit Hotel.

Breakfast
Day 4
Milos

After breakfast, enjoy a 6-hour Private Bus tour of Milos Island.

The trip begins from Papafragas, a cluster of deep‐sea inlets and sea caves. It is located at the base of a pristine ravine which was shaped by volcanic activity. We’ll wonder for a while at this picturesque location, where you can look down into clear turquoise waters and watch some rather adventurous tourists swim and snorkel in the caves at the bottom of the ravine. Milos played a crucial part in the pre‐history of the Cyclades and specifically Phylakopi, a settlement dating back to the Neolithic Period (9000 to 4000 BC approx.). While excavating the site in the late 1890s, British archaeologists discovered tools made out of obsidian, a volcanic glass similar to granite and the nicely decorated clay figurine of the “Lady of Phylakopi”. We will introduce this prehistoric position which remained an active settlement until 1000 BC from the adjacent site of Papafragas overlooking city’s western fortification wall.

A short drive from Phylakopi takes us to Sarakiniko, an inlet of pure white rock formations sculpted by volcanic eruptions. The beautiful, otherworldly spot is one of the island’s many geological wonders and perhaps one of the most photographed places in the Cyclades. We’ll take a walk down the inlet so you can experience this one‐of‐a kind beach and take photos. Here, you’ll feel as if you’ve landed on the moon. From there we will travel the road along the northern coast towards picturesque Plaka and its cobble streets and alleys. Plaka is a classic Cycladic “Chora” with white stone houses and bougainvillea flowers, at 250m, above the level of the sea. We’ll walk through the village to admire its traditional architecture and its stunning view of the sea from the veranda of Panagia Korfiatissa church, and we’ll taste some homemade sweets at the village’s famous local pastry shop.

Next stop, in the outskirts of Trypiti, lay the Catacombs, a sacred place for Early Christianity, a Necropolis and resting place of estimated 2500 souls. Close to the Catacombs is the marble Roman Amphitheater which you can only see from above because reconstruction works take place. There are still seven intact seat rows with a lovely view of the bay. Not far from this location, the site of discovery of Venus de Milo in 1820 (now residing in the Louvre in Paris).

Overnight stay in Milos at Milos Breeze.

Can you book my international airfares?

On some Islands Holiday Packages (e.g. Fiji), it is practical to include flights, so where we have done this it is indicated by the plane icon.

However, on the majority of our Holiday Packages, we do not include international flights.

We found that many customers may prefer to:

  • Travel on a specific airline of their choice
  • Have the flexibility to book flights with Frequent Flyer points
  • Select flight dates that may be different to our Holiday Package start/end dates
  • Use a Travel Credit already held with the airline
  • Use their travel agent for this service

We are able to assist with flights on any Holiday Package, so please just notify us during the Book Now process or contact our team.

Why do some packages not offer the ability to Book Now on the website?

If a package on our website does not include our Peace of Mind Booking Plan, it will not be available to Book Now.

Due to the boutique nature and limited capacity of some travel experiences offered, they have strict payment and cancellation policies. (e.g., a remote bear lodge in Canada with only a few cabins).

Although technically possible, we have decided that it is impractical for us to try and sell these type of travel services on-line. We believe it is important that such product is discussed, so that we can ensure these strict payment and cancellation policies are understood before we proceed with a booking.

For such product we may act as an agent only for the principal suppliers. Where we act as agent, your contract for the delivery of travel arrangements will be with the principal supplier and will be subject to their Booking Conditions.

We will advise you prior to confirming your booking if we are acting as agent and we will confirm the details of the principal supplier. Our responsibility to you where we sell travel arrangements as agent for the supplier is specified in the ‘Responsibility’ section of our Booking Conditions.

Should I take travel insurance?

Travel insurance is strongly recommended. During the Book Now process please confirm you require assistance, and our team will be in contact with you.

What should I do before travelling?

Before you travel it is your responsibility to ensure you have the appropriate documentation including visas. If you are travelling on a passport other than Australian or New Zealand, you will require a permit to re-enter Australia. It is your responsibility as the traveller and/or travel booker to meet all government entry requirements.
