Athens, Greece

Begin your Greek adventure in the capital city, Athens. This ancient city boasts a truly fascinating history dating back thousands of years and today old and new sit side-by-side, with ancient monuments dotted between cosmopolitan streets. Spend a night in the centre of Athens at the family-friendly Hotel Grande Bretagne and, during your time here, visit the Acropolis with a private guide.

Discover why Greek history revolves around the Acropolis, and why the Parthenon is dedicated to Athena, before admiring the captivating collection at the Acropolis Museum.

Accommodation: Hotel Grande Bretagne ( 1 night )
Day 2-5

Sifnos

Continue on to the Greek islands by ferry, where you’ll have the chance to explore some of the lesser-known islands in the stunning Cyclades. Your first stop is Sifnos, a rugged island only accessible by ferry, home to spectacular scenery and incredible views. Here you’ll spend three nights at Elies Resort, a boutique property tucked away on the south coast one of the island’s few sandy beaches. Children and adults alike will enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear waters in this secluded bay and discovering the delicious local cuisine in the traditional tavernas of the village. In Sifnos, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a more authentic side to Greece as you learn the art of pottery, a tradition which dates back thousands of years on the island. You can also explore the island on horseback, making your way across the rugged interior until you stumble across tranquil forests and centuries-old churches.

Accommodation: Elies Resorts ( 3 nights )
Day 5-8

Paros

The next stop is the gorgeous island of Paros, known for its stylish towns and fantastic beaches. Your base for three nights is Seven Santa Maria, a charming boutique hotel on the northern coast with only seven rooms and a private beach area just a short walk away. From here, set out to explore the island, starting with the picturesque town of Naoussa. This fishing village has become renowned for its charming waterfront, boasting one of the most enchanting ports in the Cyclades. After wandering through the whitewashed maze of streets, you could head inland to discover the hilltop towns of Lefkes and Prodromos, and walk the ancient Byzantine trail, paved with marble from Paros, that winds between the two. During one of your days here, head across to Paros’s smaller neighbour, Antiparos, with your private guide. In your private RIB boat, you’ll have the chance to stop and admire the stunning blue waters surrounding the Panteronissia archipelago, before learning about the ancient history of Antiparos and enjoying its secluded beaches.
