    Itinerary

    Day 1: Exploring the Venetian-Looking Town of Chania

    Stop At: Chania Venetian Lighthouse, Old Port, Chania Town, Crete Greece
    Our tour of Greece starts in the town of Chania, on the island of Crete. It is from Chania that tomorrow and the following day we would be making daytrips around the island. Please arrive at the hotel in Chania by no later than 11:00am, so we can have most of the day to explore. Note that if you cannot arrive by 11:00am, then simply let us know and we will still work around your schedule. We would make convenient arrangements for you to join the rest of us after you have checked into your room.

    Perhaps most atmospheric at night when the many bars and romantic restaurants light up along the shores and under the stars, Chania is home of a charming port that serves some of the tastiest food in all of Greece. Surrounding this historic town are streets containing boutique hotels, as well as shops that commonly illustrate Crete’s fascination with artisanship.

    Today we make a daytrip to the western side of Crete. We first take a 45-minute drive to Kissamos, followed by a 1-hour boat ride to Imeri Gramvousa. This small island hosts the remains of a Venetian fort as well as of buildings left behind by Cretan insurgents who were compelled to live as pirates during the Greek War of Independence. After exploring the sites, relaxing at the beach and returning to the mainland, we take a 1-hour drive to the island of Elafonisi. When the weather is fine it is possible to walk from the mainland to the island through the shallow water. The drive from Elafonisi back to Chania takes about 1.5 hours.

    Day 4: World Renowned Santorini Island & the Nearby Volcanic Island of Nea Kameni

    Stop At: Nea Kameni, 84700 Greece
    Today we take an early-morning, 2-hour speed boat ride from Heraklion, Crete to Santorini Island. Part of today includes a visit via a quick ferry ride to the volcanic island of Nea Kameni.

    Whitewashed and pastel-colored cubic buildings and blue-domed churches seemingly pile onto one another, cling onto the cliff-side caves of a caldera to form a dramatic landscape and striking views in what is one of the most unique destinations on earth. Especially in the villages of Thira and Oia, one can wander through a labyrinth of narrow and stone-paved alleyways filled with seasonally vibrant taverns and cafes as well as boutique shops and hotels. In these very same alleyways, you can find some pretty vibrant nightlife in the summertime.
    Duration: 2 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 5: Exploring the Rest of Santorini Island, Red Beach & Sunset at a Winery

    Stop At: Oia's Main Street, Greece
    Cycladic in style yet complimented by some neoclassical elements, Santorini is every photographer’s fantasy. With its villages perched several hundreds of feet above water, adding to this volcanic island’s allure is a stunning and world renowned-sunset, best viewed from Oia. Now throw into the mix locally produced and internationally acclaimed wines, archaeological remains and beaches with sand or pebbles made of solidified lava of various colors (e.g. Red Beach). Suddenly you have what is one of the most romanticized – and unsurprisingly visited – islands in all the Mediterranean.
    Duration: 2 hours

    No meals included on this day.

    Day 6: An Intro into the Islands of Mykonos & Delos

    Today we should be taking an early-morning, 3-hour speed boat ride from Santorini Island to Mykonos Island. Part of today includes visiting the ruins in the island of Delos, which can be reached via a 30-minute boat ride.

    Now famed for seasonally hosting some of the best beach parties and nightlife in all the Mediterranean as well as featuring an exciting fashion scene combined with stylish bars, restaurants and shops, what initially put Mykonos under the international spotlight is its clear and calm waters and quintessential Cycladic architecture: whitewashed cubic buildings, a labyrinth of narrow and stone-paved alleyways and numerous little churches dotted around town.
    Duration: 2 hours

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 7: Exploring the Rest of Mykonos Island

    Stop At: Fokos Beach, Fokos, 846 00 Greece
    Today is all about sightseeing and beaches around the island. How crowded should you expect it to be- Although Mykonos is one of Greece’s chicest and most visited destinations, the island usually only feels overcrowded in July, especially in August and sometimes in September. Visit Mykonos virtually any other time of the year and experience an island as authentically Greek as anywhere “off the beaten path.”
    Duration: 1 hour

    No meals included on this day.
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 8: The Highlights of the Capital of Greece, Athens

    Stop At: Acropolis, via Dionysiou Areopagitou str., Athens 105 58 Greece
    Today we should be taking an early morning, 4-hour speed boat ride from Mykonos Island to Athens. Only today and tomorrow morning do we plan on exploring the capital, with the key attractions being the ancient citadel of Acropolis and its museum, the Hellenic Parliament building, a flea market called ‘Monastiraki’ and the Plaka neighborhood. While Athens as a whole may not be aesthetically pleasing, the areas we plan on taking you to undoubtedly are.
    Duration: 2 hours

    Day 9: A Little More of Athens & Then Meteora's Breathtaking Nature & Spirituality

    The morning is dedicated to exploring Athens some more. Afterwards, we should be taking a 5-hour drive from Athens to Kalabaka, home of an Eastern Orthodox monastery complex site called Meteora.

    One of the largest and most impressive Eastern Orthodox complexes in all of Greece, Meteora is home of stunning monasteries perched onto surreal-looking and seemingly unapproachable sandstone rock pillars (there are steps). We will need a full day to visit all six monasteries. Note that some of the monasteries may be closed, depending on when you go. Our day will begin bright and early.
