ATHENS - CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION
1
ATHENS - CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION

Upon your arrival in the mythical city of Athens, a member of our English speaking team will be waiting for you to assist you with the check-in, inform you about all the details of your trip and offer a brief presentation of the city and its everyday way of life.  At the same time our representative will answer your questions and dispel any doubts you might have.

The transfer to your hotel will be conducted in one of our private vehicles. The rest of the day is free for you to relax and enjoy Athens at your own pace.

In the evening you will join our guided walking tour, where you will see Athens from a different perspective and have the chance to familiarize yourself with the most charming neiborhoods, such as Anafiotika, Thiseio, Monastiraki, and Plaka.

Greca Tip: Extend your stay in Athens by adding more nights during Step 1 of 3 of your reservation!

FROM ATHENS TO METEORA BY TRAIN AND SUNSET TOUR

The tour begins at Larissa train station in central Athens, where you will board the train at 07:20 am to Kalambaka station (Meteora). Enjoy a picturesque train journey through the beautiful Greek countryside and at around 11:30 am you will arrive in Kalambaka. Your driver will be waiting for you to welcome and transfer you to your hotel.

In the afternoon, you will begin your sunset tour of the area, starting from one of the six operating monasteries of Meteora, Agios Stefanos or Roussanou. You will visit the oldest standing monument, the Byzantine church of Virgin Mary located in the old town of Kalambaka. This church, built in the early Christian period and with ancient marble embedded in its walls, tells the story of the city spanning 27 centuries. You will then head to the ancient hermitages of Badovas, hear about the stories and legends and enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views.   As the sun begins to set, slowly descending upon the mountain ridges, you will climb to the top of the Meteora rocks, a magical place, for a pure, joyous and uninterrupted experience.  Up there, you will feel the night breeze blowing amidst these cliffs and you will fill your senses with the splendour of nature. This will be the perfect way to end a beautiful day at Meteora. After sunset, you will return to your accommodation and enjoy a good rest.

Dress code in the monasteries: Sleeveless shirts and shorts are not permitted. Visitors can use the skirts, shawls and trousers available at the entrance of the monasteries, in the event that they do not carry appropriate clothing to cover themselves with.

Greca Tip: Roam the maze-like cobblestone lanes of the old centre and shop around for local handmade embroidery, leather sandals and carved wooden handicrafts.

MORNING TOUR OF METEORA AND TRAIN TO THESSALONIKI VIA PALEOFARSALA

MORNING TOUR OF METEORA AND TRAIN TO THESSALONIKI VIA PALEOFARSALA

After a delicious breakfast at the hotel, we will meet you at the hotel's lobby to begin an unforgettable tour of Meteora.

You will learn which monastery was the first to be built and the reasons behind the monks' decision to climb the steep rocks and build the monasteries there. In the panoramic tour that will follow you will enjoy the incredible views and have the chance to take photos of the majestic scenery. At around 16:45 hrs., your driver will pick you up to transfer you to Kalambaka train station.

At 17:15 hrs., the train will depart from Kalambaka and at Paleofarsala you will connect to the train bound for Thessaloniki. Upon your arrival in the second largest city of Greece and the most important centre of the area, at about 20:30 hrs, your driver will meet you at the station and drive you to your hotel.

Greca Tip: Take a stroll in Kalambaka's old town and look for handmade woodcarved objects and religious icons as well as home-made sausages, honey, fruit sweets and jams, and the regional pudding (“spatoula”) or “halva” for a sweet aftertaste.

THESSALONIKI: RELAX, SEA AND HISTORY

THESSALONIKI: RELAX, SEA AND HISTORY

Free day to enjoy this magnificent city. Thessaloniki is the largest city of northern Greece and the second biggest in the country.

It is famous for its history, the dazzling shops and the vibrant nightlife.

In the Byzantine era it was one of the most important cultural centers and in modern Greek history one of the most multicultural cities.

Greca Tip: We recommend taking the boat ride in the Thermaic gulf, which gives you a great panoramic view of the city itself.

FROM ATHENS TO MYKONOS - NAVIGATING THE AEGEAN LIKE ODYSSEUS

Early in the morning, your assistant will escort you to Piraeus port in one of our private vehicles and you will take the ferry to the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos. The crossing is scheduled at the ideal time of the day so that you can enjoy the sun on deck and marvel at the deep blue of the Aegean Sea. The name of the island denotes "heap of stones" or "rocky place", but a later version connects it to the hero Mykonos, son of the king of Delos, Anius.

Upon your arrival, one of our English-speaking representatives will 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 natives.

Greca Tip: You can select a fast ferry during step 1 of 3 of your reservation.

MYKONOS: RELAX, SUN, BEACH AND HISTORY
7
MYKONOS: RELAX, SUN, BEACH AND HISTORY

Free day to enjoy this magnificent island. Mykonos is the meeting point of the international "jet set", famous for its wonderful beaches, the dazzling shops and vibrant nightlife.

The island's cuisine is mainly Mediterranean, which means that vegetables and olive oil are an integral part of the daily menu, together with certain spices (oregano, basil ...) as well as fish and seafood dishes.

Just a short distance away by ferry, there is the historic island of Delos, which, according to Greek mythology, was the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. This small island, inhabited since 3000 B.C., was one of the most important cultural centers of antiquity.

Greca tip: We recommend hiring a car or a motorcycle to venture out on the island, experience the local customs and feel like a Mykonian, too.

FROM MYKONOS TO MAGICAL SANTORINI

FROM MYKONOS TO MAGICAL SANTORINI

After a tasty breakfast, appreciating life like a Greek, we will pick you up at the agreed time, in one of our private vehicles, to drive you to the port, where you will continue on to your next destination, the island that is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, Santorini. As the ferry approaches the port, you will admire the capital city of Fira, with its white houses perched on the cliffside and facing the volcano.

Upon disembarkation, one of our English-speaking representatives will welcome you, escort you to your hotel and introduce you to some of the most outstanding features of this picturesque island. The rest of the day is free for you to wander through the narrow streets and become part of this amazing world.

Greca Tip: Sit back and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world from one of the coffee shops in glamorous Oia.

DISCOVERING SANTORINI
9
DISCOVERING SANTORINI

Free day to explore, at your own pace, this magical island, considered to be the lost continent of Atlantis. 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 may choose to go on a dazzling sailboat tour that will take you over to the small islands of the caldera, Nea and Palea Kameni, with the hot springs of green and yellow waters.

Greca Tip: On this free day, we recommend exploring the island, tasting its wine and its excellent local cuisine. We cannot miss tasting the tomatokeftedes (a kind of tomato balls), the fava dishes (a vegetable smaller than a pea) and the cheese called Chloro.

FROM SANTORINI TO ATHENS - THE RETURN
10
FROM SANTORINI TO ATHENS - THE RETURN

At the agreed time, you will be transferred to the airport of Santorini, where you will board the plane back to Athens.

Your flight to Athens airport will conveniently coincide with your international flight, which, for this reason, should preferably depart after 12:30 hrs, so that you can enjoy precious and stress-free time during the course of the day.

Having spent a few fantastic days with Greca, we hope to see you again soon to create more extraordinary moments that will be lovingly etched in your memory forever.

Have a nice trip! or as the Greeks say: Kalo taksidi!

Optionally you can add more nights in Santorini during step 1 of 3 of your reservation.

Greca Tip: As a going away gift you can buy a bottle of the indigenous wine varieties of Santorini, such as Assyrtiko, Aidani & Mavrotragano.
