This luxury vacation is ideal for those in search of an opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty and culture of the Greek Island lifestyle, while enjoying the hospitality of family-run boutique hotels or private villas that feel more like bed and breakfasts than traditional hotels.

As you review this itinerary, please keep in mind that this is an itinerary suggestion and the described destinations and activities represent only an example of the many alternatives from which we can help you choose.
Athens – 1 nightAthens, Greece Welcome to Greece! Upon arrival at the Athens airport, you will be met by your True Greece transfer representative, who will assist you with transportation to your first night's Athens luxury hotel. Once you have settled, take advantage of our travel recommendations and head out to explore Athens’ exciting neighborhoods such as Plaka, Monastiraki, or Kolonaki.

During your first exploration, you’re sure to get a glimpse of the beauty of the most famous Greek landmark, the Parthenon. You’ll have the opportunity to explore this ancient monument during your second stay in Athens. If you have not included a guided tour of the New Acropolis Museum as part of your Athens Highlights tour, then this would be a perfect opportunity to discover this incredible museum. Be sure to enjoy your first Greek cuisine experience at one of our True Greece recommended Athens restaurants or traditional tavernas.
Naxos – 3 nightsDAY 1
Naxos Island, GreeceToday you will embark on the relaxing and tranquil part of your True Greece vacation - enjoy the sound of the waves and watch the Athens’ harbor get smaller and smaller in the distance as you sail into the Aegean toward the Cycladic island of Naxos.

Check-in to your luxury boutique hotel and then enjoy the afternoon at your leisure exploring the island’s lush vegetation, charming beaches, and interesting history.


DAY 2
Although not an island of significant historic importance, there is still much to learn about Naxos’ mythical past. We recommend exploring Chora and the remains of Portara (or Great Door), the 6th century BC Temple of Apollo. Situated on the edge of the harbor, this ancient structure has become for Naxos what the Statue of Liberty is to New York or the Eiffel Tower is to Paris. Also be sure to also explore the great Castro (or castle) that is a remnant from Venetian rule. After exploring the island’s attractions, we recommend a relaxing evening at one of the restaurants or cafes overlooking the harbor and sea.

DAY 3
Today we recommend heading out and enjoying the beach! The southwest coast is home to Naxos’ best and most popular sandy beaches and turquoise waters. For the adventurous, Agios Georgios is a perfect choice for windsurfers and Mikri Vigla for kite surfers; Alikos, Glyfada and Agiassos are a great choice for something more isolated and quiet. Alternatively, you may like to stop for a quick visit of the beautiful and authentic villages of Apeiranthos, Agios Arsenios, Halki and Sangri. Having enjoyed a full day of beach and village exploration, bring your experience on Naxos to an end and enjoy a relaxing Cycladic sunset from your luxury hotel, from Chora, or from your favourite spot on the island.
Santorini – 3 nights DAY 1
Santorini Island, GreeceWelcome to Santorini ~ perhaps the premier travel destination in the Aegean! A short ferry ride will bring you to a land of dramatic red and black sand beaches, whitewashed houses and cobblestone alleyways. After checking-in to your traditional luxury villa, you’ll feel inspired by the landscape and compelled to do a little exploring on that first day, so head out and investigate Santorini’s local shops and restaurants. We suggest visiting the traditional settlement of Oia, and topping off your day with a dinner in one of the wonderful local tavernas.

DAY 2
Santorini's unique volcanic origins have created a magnificent natural structure, and what better way to appreciate a work of art located in the Aegean Sea than with a sailing trip arranged by True Greece as part of your luxury vacation. You will sail from the south side of Santorini going past the White and Red beaches, the Venetian lighthouse and into the crater where you can visit the Hot Springs. You will then sail to a secluded bay for swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear waters. After a satisfying day of sight seeing and swimming indulge in a delicious seafood and steak barbeque served with a variety of appetizers and salads.

DAY 3
Santorini is renowned for its dramatic volcanic cliffs and picturesque sunsets, but there's far more to this island jewel for you to enjoy! A favorite of many is a daytrip to the island of Thirasia, a treasure nearly untouched by civilization where time seems to stands still. If relaxation and pampering is what you need, a trip to a local spa or a visit to the Perissa or Kamari beaches offer a leisurely day of sun and rejuvenation. To finish your day, choose a local bar to enjoy an early evening drink and take in the magnificent Santorini sunset.

If you’re still itching for more, take a trip down the 800 broad, zigzagged steps from Fira to the port below. This is an experience you'll definitely remember, particularly if you take the traditional donkey ride on the way back up (a cable-car is also available)! Cozy Ammoudi beach awaits you below Oia with two family-run tavernas that serve an excellent seaside lunch. For your last night on Santorini, we recommend a traditional Santorini taverna with local cuisine and delicious local wines. Athens – 1 night Athens, GreeceBoard a short flight back to Athens, where you'll enjoy the last memorable day of your True Greece luxury vacation package. In the afternoon, take a tour of Athens and its most significant sights together with your local True Greece guide. Of course, no vacation package to Athens is complete without a climb to the Acropolis ("peak of the city"), where Ancient Athenians of the 5th century BC erected the great temple dedicated to the goddess Athena - the extraordinary Parthenon. You will also see the Ancient Agora, as well as some of the finest structures of modern Athens, such as the Kalimarmaro Stadium, home of the first modern Olympics in 1896, and the old Royal Palace and today's Parliament, with the elite unit known as the Evzones guarding the Monument of the Unknown Soldier. Finally, celebrate the end of your luxury travel experience with a farewell dinner at one of our recommended Athens restaurants.

You're sure to leave Athens, full of wonderful memories, having found a new and comfortable home in Greece.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
