Classical Greece Plus Island Hopper
from $5434
Duration: 15 Days
Some things are just better together—ouzo and ice, tzatziki and pita bread, Sun Gods and pure sunshine. We combined our enlightening tour of Classical Greece with our rejuvenating Island Hopper holiday to create the ultimate Greek getaway. History and harbours, ruins and resorts, and wisdom and waves come together as you trace the steps of ancient philosophers and athletes in Athens, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora, and more before digging your toes in the sand at two of the most glamorous islands in the Aegean. Magnificent Mykonos, with its iconic 16th-century windmills, and serene Santorini, with its picture-perfect whitewashed villages, warmly welcome guests to experience the colourful cuisine, fiery sunsets, calm waters, and pulsating nightlife. Pack your swim cap and your thinking hat for this tour of Classical Greece where cities and seas collide.
