Day 2: Athens to Mykonos

Athens
After breakfast, we have a free morning to enjoy Athens as you like, as well as an included walking tour of the top sights. Our time in Athens was amazing and well worth delaying our island time for. But delay it further? We shall not...

Mykonos
Let's do this! 3 nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love.

Paradise Beach (Superior Rooms)

  • Locally guided tour of the awe-inspiring Ancient Greek monuments including entry to the Acropolis and Parthenon
  • Ferry from Athens to Mykonos including reserved seating
Day 3: Mykonos

Here we are on a day when it feels completely fabulous to be alive. You're in Mykonos baby! And the day is yours to soak up sunshine and play in the sea. Choose to do things at your own pace or join us for an optional boat trip on the Aegean and soak up the gorgeous Greek sun while swimming in crystal clear waters. Tonight we head out for some free time to enjoy the local cuisine before enjoying some of Mykonos's famed nightlife.

Day 5: Mykonos to Santorini

Mykonos
This morning, let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only have the time to visit just one Greek Island. Those poor unfortunate souls...

Santorini
Saddle up! We're taking to the seas again, this time in search of the island of Santorini. It's finally your turn to be the one lulling about the white-washed blue dome churches looking like a sultry summer babe. Home to the famous Oia sunset, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Ah, life.

Okeanis Hotel (or similar)

Inclusions

  • Breakfast
  • Ferry from Mykonos to Santorini including reserved seating
Day 6: Santorini

Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini will not explore itself. Take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, and roam the streets of Fira.

Okeanis Hotel (or similar)

Inclusions

  • Breakfast
Day 7: Santorini

The beautiful thing about having two full days on the one island is you have time to both relax and explore. Whatever you didn't do yesterday is still up for grabs today. If you feel like you've crammed it all in already, just head to the black or red sand beaches and spend another glorious day ocean-side. Just remember to plan your day around the excursion to the iconic sunset of Oia - this is not an optional you're going to want to miss.

Okeanis Hotel (or similar)

Inclusions

  • Breakfast
Day 8: Santorini to Athens

Santorini
It's our last full day on trip - best hit up a big city we know and love and cause a little harmless havoc. Goodbye Santorini you sun soaked beauty, we're off to Athens. 


Athens
On arrival in Athens, tick off any last sightseeing you missed in this time capsule of a city tonight. 

Poseidon Hotel (or similar)

Inclusions

  • Breakfast
  • Ferry from Santorini to Athens including reserved seating
Day 9: Depart Athens

And just like that, it's time for the goodbyes. As sad as they are, at least you have the memories. And another 300 Contiki trips to jump aboard! Make the most of your last free breakfast before you kick on to your next port of call.
