10-night Best of Greece: Athens, Mykonos & Santorini

This 11-day travel idea takes you to the brightest sites in Greece, passing from the capital of Athens to the famous islands of Mykonos and Santorini.

Your Greek vacation starts and ends in Athens, Greece’s capital and the centre of their ancient civilization. Athens is a landmark city, famous the world over for its wealth of history and incredible contributions to world culture. Dotted with ruins from the 5th century B.C. such as the famous Acropolis, the city is also a living and breathing museum. Take a city tour to get acquainted with the historical sites, passing from Constitution Square to the House of Parliament, past Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympics were held in 1896 and the Temple of Zeus and finally to the Acropolis, where you’ll find the Temple of Athena Nike and the iconic Parthenon. Athens has enough history to spend a lifetime exploring, but it’s not wanting for more contemporary pleasures. You’ll find the city’s entertainment centre in Gazi, but the whole city boasts incredible food, fashion, and nightlife. This is a city that’ll never stop growing and adding more layers to its stunning depth of history.

After exploring Athens’ historical sites, turn seaward and head to Mykonos, in the Cyclades Islands in the Mediterranean. If Athens is Greece’s heart, Mykonos is its thumping heartbeat. The island is second-to-none when it comes to nightlife. Its beachside DJ parties, electric clubs, and high-end restaurant will leave you buzzing and satisfy even the most voracious partier.

Once you've tasted Mykonos's pleasures, head to Santorini, home to the whitewashed houses you likely imagine when you think of Greece. Perched on 300m cliffs over the ocean, Santorini’s towns are spectacular and the landscape is even better. Its unique crescent shape and rugged landscape is the result of a volcanic eruption in the 16th century B.C. Take a volcanic cruise to explore the active volcanic crater on Neo Kameni and the eastern Mediterranean’s newest islets and swim through the sulfuric hot springs near Palea Kameni. Also take advantage of a Catamaran Dinner Cruise, which takes you to the ruins of Akrotiri, Santorini’s red and white beaches, and closes out your trip to Greece with a gorgeous sunset dinner on the Mediterranean.

Featured Destinations

Mykonos

Mykonos's many captivating attributes make it one of the most celebrated Greek holiday islands. Its main village is a colorful maze of narrow streets lined with white-washed houses, many with bright blue doors and shutters. As an attractive backdrop, famous windmills are lined up like toy soldiers on the hillside, vestiges of a time when wind power was used to grind grain. Mykonos has churches and chapels scattered about the island; quite a number of them are located right in town. Radiant flowers spill over white-washed walls and shady courtyards. In addition to swimming, sunning, water-skiing and surfing, visitors find endless shopping opportunities. Artists have relied on Mykonos' beautiful setting to inspire them. The most photographed site is the Paraportiani, a cluster of white-washed churches resting below windmills. Mykonos's museums include an Archaeological Museum, which houses relics from the Trojan War, a Folk Art Museum and a Maritime Museum. The best beaches are Aghios Stephanos, Psarou, Kalafatis, Onros, Panormos and Elia.

Santorini

Santorini is everything that has made the Greek islands legendary. The world famous island of Santorini is the southern most island of the Cycladic group in the Aegean Sea, and is located north of Crete. Its population is distributed among thirteen villages and just exceeds nine thousand. The marvelous dry climate and unbroken sunshine create year around conditions which are perfect for observation, photographs and videos under an extraordinary variety of natural lights and colors.

Athens

Even though you've probably come here to see the "glory that was Greece," perhaps best symbolized by the Parthenon and the superb statues and vases in the National Archaeological Museum, allow some time to make haste slowly in Athens. Your best moments may come sitting at a small cafe, sipping a tiny cup of the sweet sludge that the Greeks call coffee, or getting hopelessly lost in the Plaka -- only to find yourself in the shady courtyard of an old church, or suddenly face to face with an ancient monument you never knew existed. With only a little advance planning, you can find a good hotel here, eat well in convivial restaurants, enjoy local customs such as the refreshing afternoon siesta and the leisurely evening volta (promenade or stroll) -- and leave Athens planning to return, as the Greeks say, tou chronou (next year).
