ATHENS - CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION

After your arrival in the mythical city of Athens, the transfer to your hotel will be conducted in one of our private vehicles. A member of our English speaking team will meet you at your hotel, help you with the check-in, inform you of all the details of your trip, introduce you to the city and its everyday way of life and answer any questions you may have. The rest of the day will be free for you to relax and enjoy Athens at your own pace.

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

ATHENS SIGHTSEEING WITH ACROPOLIS, TEMPLE OF ZEUS, TRILOGY & ATHENS BY NIGHT

After your breakfast and, at the agreed time, you will commence the panoramic tour of the Athenian Neoclassical Center: the Parliament, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the University, the Library, and National Academy, the Ilion Palace, the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Gate, the Panathenaic Stadium, and many other monuments and sites of great interest.  You will learn all there is to know about their history and background from the licensed English-speaking Tour Guide accompanying you on this tour.

Your next stop will be the "sacred rock", the spectacular, unique and magnificent Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. The entrance fee to both sites is included. At the end of the visit, you can either choose to return to your hotel or set out on your own adventure through the charming and picturesque streets of Plaka.

In the evening, we have included a guided walking tour that will take you through the prettiest districts of the capital, such as Anafiotika, Thissio, Monastiraki, and Plaka.

Greca Tip: In Plaka look for something alluring, like ceramics, musical instruments, handmade jewelry to specialty food shops stacked high with olives and spices.

FROM ATHENS TO SKIATHOS: THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!

At the agreed time, one of our private vehicles will be waiting for you with your assistant to transfer you to the airport of Athens, where you will board your flight, lasting about 45 minutes, to the stunning island of Skiathos.

Upon your arrival in Skiathos one of our representatives will be waiting for you to welcome you, transfer you to your hotel and explain a little more about the island.

The rest of the day will be free for you to relax and discover the charms of the island and its beaches. The island is formed by the city of Skiathos and the communities of Koukounaries, Kanapitsa, Vromolimnos and Troulos.

Greca Tip: At daytime, stroll around the town’s paved streets with the cute white houses, red tiled roofs and colourful gardens.  In the evening, head to the ultimate entertainment hotspot, the pedestrianized street by the Old Harbour.

FROM SKIATHOS TO ALONISSOS

FROM SKIATHOS TO ALONISSOS

Early in the morning and after a generous breakfast, you will go to the port to embark on your trip to the island of Alonissos. During this boat tour you will enjoy the paradisiacal setting of this archipelago until you reach your destination: Alonissos, an ideal island for nature lovers.

In Alonissos you will have the opportunity to observe shoals of dolphins, monk seals and all the creatures that populate and take refuge in the National Marine Park, founded in 1992.

The old capital, called Chorio or Liadromia, is built on top of a hill. The devastating earthquake of 1965 destroyed a large number of traditional houses, the ruins of which can still be seen today. Many of them have been restored, especially by foreigners, who have gradually settled closer to the sea.

Upon your arrival our representative will be waiting for you to transfer you to the hotel. The rest of the day is free to explore this picturesque island, take a leisurely stroll in the streets of its capital, visit the 15th century Venetian fort offering sweeping views of the sea, and the main harbour of Patitiri, with the beautiful stone paved waterfront.

Greca Tip: At the edge of Patitiri you can stop at the women’s cooperative for some home-baked cheese or spinach pies and local almond sweets.

ALONISSOS - PROTECTED NATURAL HABITATS AND SERENE PLACES IDEAL FOR RELAXATION

After a tasty breakfast, you will have a free day to enjoy this fascinating island. Dense vegetation, large pine forests in a rocky terrain, olive groves and orchards, Alonissos has many surprises for you in store.

First of all, it is the proud host of the National Marine Park, a protected area and the ideal place for diving and exploring the underwater sea world. Here you will be able to see the remnants of the 5th century BC shipwreck and afterwards, if you are looking for a serene place to relax, you can lie on the beach of Kokino Castro, "the red castle", which was the first settlement of the island. Another very popular beach is Agios Dimitrios, a place that has repeatedly been recognised for its commitment to environmental conservation.

At night, we suggest trying a typical fish and seafood dish in one of the taverns.

Greca Tip: If your visit seems rather too short, you can always add nights in this idyllic island in step 1 of 3 at the time of your reservation.

FROM ALONISSOS TO SKIATHOS

In the morning you will enjoy an exquisite breakfast and then you will be transferred to the port to take the Alonissos ferry to Skiathos. This is the most famous island of the Sporades archipelago, the only one with an airport serving not only domestic but also international and charter flights.  Thanks to its beaches and its fun atmosphere, Skiathos is known as the "Capri of the Aegean". At the port of Skiathos, you will be transferred to your hotel, where you can relax and then start exploring the town at your own pace.

Greca Tip: Skiathos nightlife is fabulous, so don't stay at the hotel!

FROM SKIATHOS TO ATHENS, THE RETURN

After breakfast and at the time indicated, our staff will transfer you to Skiathos airport, where you will board your flight to Athens.

Upon your arrival, we suggest that you take a stroll in the city center and finally make yourself comfortable in one of the taverns, where you can enjoy some traditional Greek dishes and discover the energy and vibe of the city's nightlife. This is the perfect time to shop for souvenirs, have a magnificent coffee and observe the Lycabettto mountain illuminated in the distance, while we review the little moments of this great trip in our mind.

Greca Tip: At Monastiraki Square you can enjoy fabulous views of the Acropolis all lit up.

Undoubtedly and after spending a few fantastic days with Greca, we hope to see you again soon to create new and extraordinary moments that will be etched in your memory forever!

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

Greca Tip: As a going away gift you can choose from a wide range of brightly colored flokati rugs, handmade sandals, embroidered covers and Greek honey or olive oil.
