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 have have. The rest of the day is free for you to relax and enjoy Athens at your own pace.
Greca Tip: Extend your stay by adding nights at Step 1 of 3!

FROM ATHENS TO METEORA BY TRAIN AND SUNSET TOUR

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 in the morning towards Kalambaka (Meteora). Enjoy a picturesque train journey through the beautiful Greek countryside. Around 11:30 am, the train will arrive in Kalambaka  and our driver will be waiting for you with a sign showing your name to transfer you to your hotel.

Later in the afternoon, we will pick you up to begin your sunset tour, visiting one of the six operating monasteries of Meteora, Agios Stefanos or Roussanou. We will guide you to the oldest standing monument of the place, the Byzantine church of the Virgin Mary located in the old town of Kalambaka. This church, made in the early Christian period and with ancient marbles embedded in its walls, tells the history of the city spanning 27 centuries. We will go on to visit 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, we will take you 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.

Dress code in the monasteries: Sleeveless clothing and shorts over the knee for men are prohibited. For ladies skirts and shawls are available at the entrance in case they don’t have such clothing to cover themselves.

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 be picked up to start an unforgettable  morning tour of Meteora. You will find out 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 5:15 p.m., the train will leave Kalambaka and arrive in Athens at 9:30 p.m.  Our 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 SYROS, SAILING THE AEGEAN LIKE ODYSSEUS

FROM ATHENS TO SYROS, SAILING THE AEGEAN LIKE ODYSSEUS

In the early morning, 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 catch the ferry to the island of Syros.

Upon your arrival on the island, one of our representatives will welcome you, transfer you to your hotel and introduce you to the island.

The rest of the day will be free for you to relax and familiarize yourself with the friendly islanders' unhurried way of life.

Greca Tip: Do not forget to taste the loukoumia from Syros. 

 

 DISCOVERING THE DUCHESS OF THE AEGEAN.
5
DISCOVERING THE DUCHESS OF THE AEGEAN.

After a tasty breakfast, you will be ready to enjoy the fascinating island of Syros. We suggest visiting the capital of Syros and the Cyclades, Ermoupoli, stroll in its streets and discover the stately character of its past.

There are many pastel colors that mix with the blue of the Aegean Sea.  You can also walk all the way to Ano Syros, located at the top of a hill and crowned by the Church of Saint George. It is the medieval city of Syros, formerly surrounded by a fortress.

If you prefer to spend the day on a beach, it would be best if you headed south to Mega Gialo, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, with crystal clear waters and fine sand.

Greca Tip: If you decide to swim in Finikas, a spa that has the largest bay on the island and several nearby islets, you can also practice diving.

FROM SYROS TO THE MAGICAL SANTORINI
6
FROM SYROS TO THE MAGICAL SANTORINI

After a delicious breakfast, one of our vehicles will pick you up at the agreed time to take us to the port of Syros, where you will continue by sea to our next destination ... the inexhaustible source island of inspiration, Santorini. The approach to the island is fascinating and it is the ideal moment to photograph the city of Fira, with its white houses hanging on the slope that faces the volcano.

Upon the arrival on the island, one of our Spanish speaking representatives will be waiting for you to welcome you, transfer you to your hotel and explain a little more about this picturesque island.

We will have the rest of the day free to continue walking through its alleys.

Tip Greca: Delight in one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world from one of the many tearooms on the caldera.

DISCOVERING SANTORINI
7
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.

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 your flight back to Athens.

Your arrival at the airport will correspond with your international flight, which should preferably have a departure later than 12:30 hrs, or even better in the late afternoon, so that you could move comfortably throughout the course of the day.

Having spent a few fantastic days with Greca, we hope to see you soon so as to create together new and extraordinary moments that will be lovingly etched in your memory.

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

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

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