Arrival in Athens Airport, private transfer from Athens Airport to Hotel

Enjoy Athens at leisure

Athens’ heyday was around 400 years BC, that’s when most of the classical monuments were built. During the Byzantine and Turkish eras, the city decayed into just an insignificant little village, only to become the capital of newly-liberated Greece in 1833. Ahead of the 2004 Olympics, almost the entire infrastructure was transformed: the Metro, trams, new ring roads and viaducts have eased the pressure of the heavy traffic.

Athens is still a rather messy and chaotic place—it wouldn’t be Athens otherwise—and despite all the improvements, still retains a great deal of its oriental charm. The whole coastal stretch from Piraeus to the old Hellenikon airport has been improved with new plantings, viaducts, and paths for walking. The Plaka district is becoming more and more popular and it is on the way to catching up with Psyrri, Gazi, and Rouf as regards restaurants.

Discover the beauties of the Anafiotika district, at the feet of the Acropolis, and visit the ancient village still housed amid the city. In Exarchia, there is still a somewhat in-your-face anarchic atmosphere around the Technical University. Meanwhile, Kolonaki is becoming more and more chic.

Exploring Paros Villages through self-drive

First stop: Paroikia, the capital of Paros. Here, a well-preserved 13th-century Venetian castle stands proudly on a hill at the village center, offering an amazing view of Paroikia. Visit of the famous Island landmark: the 6th-century church of Panayia Ekatontapyliani. Then continuation to Lefkes: the ancient capital of the island and one of the loveliest villages of Paros.

Situated in the central part of Paros, it is built at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level, on a verdant hill covered by olive trees and pine trees and it offers a breathtaking view of Naxos Island. Stop in a traditional Kafenio to taste a Greek coffee and pastry.

The next stop is Prodromos. South-east of Parikia and 7 kilometers south of Naoussa is the picturesque small village of Prodromos built in the traditional Cycladic way, full of whitewashed cube houses, tiny white chapels, and beautiful churches. The village of Prodromos, together with the village of Marmara, form the community of Archilohos which took its name from an ancient poet of the island.

A short drive from Prodromos is the hidden village of Marpissa. Marpissa is one of Paros’s most beautiful villages, built amphitheatrically at the top of a small hill, featuring immaculately clean alleys, impressive arches and passageways, tidy rainwater channels, numerous churches, and squares.

Time to discover Naoussa, a colorful fisherman village. Explore its traditional character and its charm. It features whitewashed and flowered little houses and tiny whitewashed churches and chapels, surrounded by labyrinth-like narrow, stone-paved streets.





Visit Paros Beaches through self-drive

Kolimbithres: The beach of Kolimbithres is one of the most famous beaches of Paros and is located in the huge bay of Naoussa, or Plastira Bay. This beach is particularly impressive because of the huge blocks of granite boarding it, sculpted into strange smooth shapes by the sea and the wind over the centuries.

Golden Beach: The Chrissi Akti Golden Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Paros – a long expanse of fine sand that sparkles in the sun due to its glass-like makeup. Santa Maria Beach: Santa Maria is located near Naoussa, in Plastira Bay, and is a long coastline divided into two soft, golden sandy beaches which offer a beautiful view on the island of Naxos and the crystal emerald waters.

Aliki: Aliki is the largest fishing village on Paros and is home to 3 fantastic beaches. The main Aliki Beach is the best, offering fine sand, great swimming, wonderful seafood tavernas, and sunbeds for rent. The smaller beaches, Piso Aliki and Agios Nikolaos, are quieter, sandy-pebbly beaches with glassy clear water and charming, authentic tavernas.

Free Day at leisure in Santorini

The island’s beauty has been waxed lyrical over the years, fully earning the epithet “Kallista” (the most beautiful). Along with “Strogili”, this was one of the former names lent to the island over its troubled history.

Its history is one of the battles and conquers, of a tragic eruption and a blossoming renaissance – events that haven’t altered Santorini’s charm but that undoubtedly scarred it.

Together with the inhabited Therania and five other smaller islands, Thera (Santorini’s Greek name) belongs to the namesake archipelago which is the vestige of a volcanic caldera. Places of unspoiled nature and postcard-like views, the islands are reachable by boat and bear the original appeal of the old-fashioned Santorini. The main island is split further into picturesque villages masterly painted in dazzling blue and white hues, outlining the holiday resort’s multi-faceted personality and its extraordinary variety of landscapes.

The scent of wine grapes and vineyards stretching lazily down Santorini’s unrefined hills; the unique taste of tomatoes grown solely on volcanic soil and the soaring temperature of the island; the subtle sand or the smoothness of white pebbles and turquoise waters of some of Europe’s most suggestive beaches; the upbeat sound of the buzzing nightlife; the spectacle of the sun setting behind the village of Oia and the caldera to finally plunge into the skyline.
Santorini gratifies all 5 senses, treating the traveler to enchanting views and thousands of colors.





Santorini Eat&Walk Semi-private Food Tour

Our goal is to showcase the flavors and ingredients of Mediterranean cuisine from a local standpoint, in a fun & informative manner to really let you experience Greek food as the locals do!

Our fun local food expert will meet you at a starting point in Firostefani and lead you through the traditional towns of Firostefani and Fira, following a pebbled downhill footpath right on the edge of the world-famous Santorini caldera. Start your day with a traditional Greek coffee, follow your guide through the historical alleyways and hidden paths of Fira with several stops for samplings of local treats, including an olive oil tasting and a quick bite of souvlaki – the ultimate greek street food.

During the tour, you will have the opportunity to taste Santorini & Greek food, street food, samples of local beer, wine, and raki, Cycladic cheeses & cold cuts, olive oil tasting, delicacies from the bakery, and traditional sweets. Of course, lunch at a caldera view restaurant combined with some local wine is a ‘must’!





Full-day Exploration of Santorini at your own pace

Without mentioning dazzling panoramas, the mesmerizing sea, or vibrant villages, Santorini’s culinary tradition would be something worth experiencing on its own. Borrowing a pronounced Mediterranean diet from the mainland, Santorini shares a tendency to use vegetables, quality olive oil, meat, and fresh seafood generously, creating its cuisine by adding products that are cultivated solely on its fertile soil.

Try the island’s peculiar white-eggplants with mozzarella, or sample the unique “Tomatokeftedes”, tomato fritters made of Santorini’s produce, and accompany it beautifully with a glass of Vinsanto – Santorini is in all aspects a work of art, and its souvenirs and local produce doubtlessly reflect the island’s beautiful facets.

Oia and above all Fira are the island’s major shopping destinations, places of unrivaled charm where traditional shops line up neatly down narrow streets. In Santorini a visit to one of the local art galleries is a must: evocative handicrafts, folk art, and jewelry can be bought at accessible prices, guaranteeing a souvenir that mirrors the authenticity of the villages.

Another worthy shopping experience is all about local produce. The diversity of products makes it hard to choose from the numerous delicacies grown on the island’s volcanic soil. Fava, the Greek version of split peas, is particularly unique in Santorini and it is used to make a down-to-earth, yet scrumptious, puree. The island’s grapes make a heavenly wine that is exported worldwide and can be bought in any of the local wineries. Last but not least comes Santorini’s trademark tomato, the locals’ pride, and a must-try for food-aficionados – wonderfully appetizing and juicy.

Afternoon – Acropolis Private Guided Tour

You will meet your specialized state-licensed guide and embark on a historical journey, to Greece’s most famous landmark, the Acropolis.
Athens is an ancient city that has evolved into a contemporary metropolitan continuously keeping up with the new trends of the modern world. However, Greece’s capital is immensely proud of its important heritage and has successfully integrated the ancient sections into the new scene. The blend is unique and beautiful. Your tour will begin at the most significant ancient site, the Acropolis.

A 2-hour tour with an expert state-licensed guide will be more than enough for you to inhale the greatness of this archaeological site. Once you set foot into the monumental entrance of the Acropolis, known as the Propylaea, your insightful guide will explain to you how the architect Mnesicles built it between 437- 432 BCE as part of Pericles’s great rebuilding program for Athens. Standing proud next to the Propylaea lays the Temple of Athena Nike. Move along to another temple that honored the gods Athena and Poseidon, the Erechtheion. Finally, you will reach the glorious temple of the Acropolis, the Parthenon. The Parthenon was built between 447 and 432 BCE in the Age of Pericles, and it was dedicated to the city’s patron deity Athena.

Now reaching the end of your tour, make sure to take in the breathtaking view of the city of Athens before you return to your hotel.
If you wish to continue exploring the city, feel free to ask your guide for recommendations to perfect your day in Athens.
