Early in the morning, after a tasty breakfast, one of our private vehicles will be waiting for you along with your assistant to transfer you to the port of Piraeus, where you will board the ferry to the famous island of Mykonos. The crossing is scheduled at the ideal time of the day so as to enjoy the sun on deck and marvel at the deep blue of the Aegean Sea. The chosen name is said to be "the heap of stones" or the "rocky place", but a later version states that the island's name is connected to the hero Mykono, son of the king of Delos, Anius.

Upon your arrival on the island, one of our English speaking representatives will be waiting to welcome you, transfer you to your hotel and introduce you to this famous island.

The rest of the day is free for you to relax and immerse yourself in the 'slow' way of life of the islanders.

DAY IN HERAKLON AND OVERNIGHT IN SANTORINI

After a generous breakfast, you will arrive at the largest of the Greek islands, Crete. Exactly to the port of Heraklion, capital of the island and former home of King Minos and his Minotaur.

This city was the most important of the Minoan civilization, where the Palace of Knossos, the oldest palatial complex in Europe, is located.

Around noon, after enjoying some free time, the cruise will leave to the amazing and picturesque island of Santorini. The approach to the island is fascinating and it is the ideal time to photograph the city of Fira, with its white houses hanging on the slope that faces the volcano.

Around 4:30 p.m. our cruise ship will arrive at the fascinating island of Santorini where you will disembark and be transferred to your hotel. Upon your arrival on the island, one of our English speaking representatives will be waiting to welcome you, transfer you to your hotel and introduce you to this famous island.

DISCOVERING SANTORINI
8
DISCOVERING SANTORINI

Free day for you and your companion to explore this magical island, considered to be the lost continent of Atlantis, at your own pace. The name of the island was given by the Venetian Giacomo Barozzi due to the presence of a chapel dedicated to Saint Eirini. His descendants remained until 1576, when the island became part of the Duchy of Naxos and until the Turkish conquest by Piyale Pasha.

Optionally, you can choose to go on a dazzling sailboat tour that comprises visits to the small islands inside the caldera, Nea and Palea Kameni, with the hot springs of green and yellow waters.

All the time, the capital city of Fira will never be far away, but will remain within view  throughout the cruise tour.

Greca Tip: We also recommend hiring a car in order to find out more about this island, taste its wine and its excellent local cuisine. Try tomatokeftedes, a kind of tomato balls as well as fava dishes (a vegetable smaller than a pea) and the cheese called Chloro, accompanied by one of the local wines.

Have a nice trip! or as you will say yourself: "Kalo taksidi!"
