Package Tour Itinerary: Rome And The Greek Islands

ROME - THE ETERNAL CITY
1
ROME - THE ETERNAL CITY

Upon your arrival at the airport of the 'Eternal City', a member of our team will be waiting for you in one of our private vehicles to welcome you and transfer you comfortably and quickly to your hotel.

Rome was called the “Eternal City” by the ancient Romans because they believed that no matter what happened in the rest of the world, the city of Rome would always remain standing. Throughout the centuries the Italian capital reached the pinnacle of the historic, artistic, and cultural expression of the Western world and you will understand why this great city has proudly featured in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1980. 

The rest of the day will be free for you to relax, and if you wish, begin to enjoy Rome at your own pace.

Greca Tip: Remember that the best way to get around the narrow and pedestrian streets of the historic center of Rome is on foot.

DO LIKE THE ROMANS DO

DO LIKE THE ROMANS DO

After a refreshing breakfast, you will have free time to explore the Eternal City at your own pace. You can choose from thousands of options: walking, visiting monuments, shopping or tasting the local gastronomy and from a wide selection pasta, vegetable, meat and fish dishes. 

Rome is the geographical heart of the Catholic religion and the city with the highest concentration of historical and architectural assets in the world. In 1980, together with the extraterritorial properties of the Holy See found in the city and the Saint Paul's Outside the Walls, Rome was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Greca Tip: Optionally, you can book a guided tour in English, with exclusive tickets (avoiding the queues), to visit the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica or the magical Colosseum.

The essential monuments like the Colosseum, the Forum as well as a walk through the center of the squares dominated by the signature fountains are highly recommended. Later in the evening you will enjoy dinner on your own and have a rejuvenating rest at your hotel.

Greca Tip: For your dinner we recommend that you head to one of the trattorias of the Trastevere neighborhood, where you can enjoy a rich Italian fish dish and a glass of the house white wine.

In Athens, the transfer to the city centre will be carried out in one of our private vehicles.  Your English-speaking assistant will be waiting for you to help you with the hotel check in and inform you of all the details of the trip.  He will also clear up any doubts, answer your questions as well as give you a brief account of the city and its day to day life.

The rest of the day is free for you to relax and start enjoying Athens at your own pace.

Greca Tip: You can reach the top of Mount Lycabettus by a funicular or on foot and you will enjoy an incredible panoramic view of Athens.

ATHENS SIGHTSEEING WITH ACROPOLIS, TEMPLE OF ZEUS & TRILOGY

After your breakfast and at the appointed 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.

After the panoramic tour, you will visit 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.

Greca Tip: You can enjoy a meal or a drink in one of the fine restaurants and bars hidden in the alleys of Plaka, with their 19th-century facades garlanded with flowering bougainvilleas.

FROM ATHENS TO MYKONOS - NAVIGATING THE AEGEAN LIKE ODYSSEUS

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 Mykono, 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
8
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, we may choose to go on a dazzling sailboat tour that will take us 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.
