There is nothing quite like the magical Greek Isles. Explore two of the best on this unique vacation package to Greece. Unlike our ever-popular Greek cruises, when you travel to Greece on our "island hopper" getaway, you’ll spend several days on each island—a chance to really get to know and love them. This package is designed for the independent traveler, so you can choose to spend the days exploring the ancient secrets of the Greek islands, or just bask on the sun-splashed Mediterranean beaches. Spend the evenings dining, dancing and enjoying the famous nightlife.

After two nights in Athens, the birthplace of western civilization, sail off into the Greek world of sparkling blue waters, Mediterranean sunshine and ancient islands full of history, myth, and wonders. The first stop is beautiful Mykonos, with its white-washed houses and blue shutters studding the island, sparkling beaches and clear blue sea. Sail on to the legendary Santorini, with spectacular views of the sunken caldera and still-active volcano, black sand beaches, fabulous shopping alongside unspoiled villages. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Greece and the Greek Isles, all at an incredible price.

1. Royal Myconian, or similar in Mykonos. Majestic Hotel, or similar in Santorini.

Optional Excursions
Cape Sounion $55

So that we can offer you the best deals, our packages are, like most hotels and cruises, priced based on double occupancy rooms or cabins. We charge solo travelers an extra fee to cover the extra costs of single occupancy rooms or cabins. (Consider: if you booked a $200/night hotel room solo, you would pay the $200 yourself; but if a couple booked the same room, each one would pay only $100.) But you only pay extra for the rooms or cabins, nothing else, including meals, sightseeing, tips, etc. Why are single rooms more?

Flights & Departure Cities

Departure Airports
New York City (NYC) included

This package includes round-trip flights from the city listed above.

Want to fly from another city? We can arrange flights from most major cities. Ask us for a quote for flights from your preferred city when (or after) you reserve, and we'll get back to you with the price and availability within 3 business days. Of course, you can also book your own flights. More information

Royal Olympic or similar

Full Day Itinerary
Cafe in Plaka, Athens

Arrive today in Athens. You'll be met by our representative and then escorted to your hotel, centrally located near Constitution Square and the famous Plaka (Old Town). Athens, the birthplace of western civilization, once hailed as the Paris of the Mediterranean, is now a bustling modern city, a colorful tapestry of eastern and western influences, full of outdoor cafes, pedestrian streets, parks and gardens, street bazaars, dilapidated mansions and ancient ruins.

Day 3 Athens

  • Enjoy a half day of sightseeing in Athens
  • Spend the afternoon exploring the city independently, or join an optional excursion

Royal Olympic or similar Breakfast

Full Day Itinerary
Parthenon, Athens

The striking contrast between breathtaking monuments of a glorious past and modern elegant structures is what you will enjoy during your tour of Athens. Visit the Acropolis, the crowning beauty and glory of Ancient Athens, with its many monuments atop its rocky base, including the awesome Parthenon, the Propylea, the temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion, with its Porch of Maidens.

Drive to the Roman Temple of Olympic Zeus, the Panathinaikon Stadium (site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896), and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the Parliament House on Constitution Square. See views of government buildings and elegant structures of the 19th century. Drive along Panepistimiou Avenue and view the Catholic Cathedral, the Academy, the University, and the National Library. Conclude your tour with a visit to the new Acropolis Museum, a marvel of architecture with a full exhibition of the glory of Ancient Athens.

This afternoon, explore Athens on your own or join an optional excursion.

Optional Excursion: Cape Sounion, $55
Temple of Poseidon, Cape Sounion

Drive along the coastal road past countless coves and the beautiful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni, and Varkiza to Cape Sounion. Dominated by the spectacular Temple of Poseidon, the sanctuary at Sounion is one of the most important archaeological sites in Attica. Although evidence suggests that the site dates back to the prehistoric period, the sanctuary is first mentioned in Homer's Odyssey, as the place where Menelaos stopped during his return from Troy to bury his helmsman, Phrontes Onetorides.
