ATHENS - CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION
1
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!

FROM ATHENS TO METEORA BY TRAIN AND SUNSET TOUR
2
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.

KALAMBAKA - MORNING TOUR AND RETURN TO ATHENS
3
KALAMBAKA - MORNING TOUR AND RETURN TO ATHENS

After a delicious breakfast at your hotel you will start an unforgettable morning tour of Meteora. You will learn which monastery was the first to become established and the reasons behind the monks' decision to attempt 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 awe-inspiring scenery.

At 17:15, the train will leave Kalambaka and arrive in Athens at 21:30.  Your driver will be waiting for you at Larissa train station to transfer you to the hotel.

Greca Tip: Do not leave this region without trying a variety of home-made pies, a glass of house wine or a few tsipouro shots and the regional pudding (“spatoula”) or some “halva” for a sweet aftertaste.

FROM ATHENS TO NAXOS, SAILING THE AEGEAN LIKE ULYSSES

FROM ATHENS TO NAXOS, SAILING THE AEGEAN LIKE ULYSSES

Early in the morning, one of our private vehicles will be waiting for you with your assistant to transfer you to the port of Piraeus, where you will board the ferry to Naxos. Upon your arrival one of our representatives will be waiting for you to transfer you to your hotel and explain a little more about the island.

The rest of the day will be free for you to immerse yourself in the relaxed lifestyle of the friendly islanders. We recommend that you take the day tour to Chora, the island's capital and watch the sunset at the spectacular Portara, the gateway to the temple of Apollo.

Tip Greca: Don not forget to taste Musaka, a typical island dish made with eggplants, meat and tomatos.

ENJOYING NAXOS, THE LARGEST OF THE CYCLADES
5
ENJOYING NAXOS, THE LARGEST OF THE CYCLADES

After an exquisite breakfast, you will have a free day to explore the largest island of the Cyclades at your own pace. We recommend using this day to visit the Ancient temple dedicated to Dimitra, sister of Zeus, goddess of wheat and agriculture and protector of the cycle of the seasons. This temple is in fact located in the middle of the island's cultivated fields. You can also visit the town of Vivlos, famous for its three windmills or Filoti, a very interesting and picturesque little village. If you prefer to walk by the beach, you can do so due to their large number and variety, while you would not even have to go far from the town itself. Among others we suggest that you visit Pyrgaki, Aliko, Hawaii Beach or Plaka.

Greca Tip: If you like trekking and are well prepared for it, you can ascend Monte Zas, the birthplace of Zeus himself!

FROM NAXOS TO MAGICAL SANTORINI
6
FROM NAXOS TO MAGICAL SANTORINI

After enjoying a tasty breakfast, one of our vehicles will pick you up at the agreed time to drive you to the port of Naxos, where you will continue on to your next destination, the island which is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, Santorini. Approaching the island, you will have the opportunity to admire the capital city of Fira, with its white houses overhanging the cliffside and facing the volcano.

Upon your arrival, one of our English-speaking representatives will be waiting for you at the port to welcome you, direct you to your hotel and comment a little more on the treasures of this picturesque island. The rest of the day is free to wander through its narrow streets and become part of the famous animated scene.

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
7
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
8
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.
