Upon your arrival in the eternal city, one of our vehicles will be waiting for you at the airport to welcome and transfer you comfortably and quickly to the hotel.

On the way, you will appreciate why the Italian capital is considered the maximum expression of the historical, artistic, and cultural wealth of the Western world. This is the reason why since 1980 this great city was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

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

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

The crossing is scheduled at the ideal time of the day so as to enjoy the sun on deck and marvel at the deep blue of the Aegean Sea. The chosen name is said to be "the heap of stones" or the "rocky place", but a later version states that the island's name is connected to the hero Mykono, son of the king of Delos, Anius.

Upon your arrival on the island, one of our English speaking representatives will be waiting to 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 islanders.

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 makes vegetables and olive oil a basic part of the daily menu, as well as certain spices (oregano, basil ...) and on many occasions, fish and seafood.

Just a few minutes 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 yourself like a Mykonian.

DISCOVERING SANTORINI
9
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
10
FROM SANTORINI TO ATHENS - THE RETURN

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 about comfortably and stress-free 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!
