Cyklady

2.day

Athens

Arrival in Athens – a place primarily known for its well-preserved ancient world monuments. After a short rest from the journey, we will take an evening stroll through this unique city. Dinner at a restaurant serving local cuisine and return to the hotel for overnight stay.

3.day

Paros

After breakfast, we will transfer to Piraeus, where we will board a ferry to Paros. The island is renowned primarily for its pristine landscape. In its center rises the 771-meter-high Profitis Ilias, where the quarry of the famous Parian marble is located. Paros offers excellent conditions for wind- and kitesurfing, especially around the port of Pounda. For those less active, the island offers magnificent views and fairy-tale beaches. Overnight stay on Paros.

4.day

Naxos

Today, we embark on a cruise to the neighboring island. Naxos is the largest and greenest island in the archipelago. It is famous for the cultivation of citrus fruits, grapes, and olives. Not by chance was it dedicated to Dionysus in ancient times. From the island, you can reach the islet of Palatia via a causeway, where the most recognizable symbol of the island is located – the Portara. It is the gate of the temple of Apollo, the construction of which was never completed. We will return to Paros for overnight stay.

5.day

Mykonos

On the next day, we will continue to enjoy the sun and the sea. We sail to Mykonos, an island where the sun shines for 300 days a year. A characteristic feature of the island’s landscape are windmills, as strong winds blow there, moderating the high temperatures, along with white houses with colorful doors and small churches. We will take a stroll along the cobbled streets. In addition to admiring the architectural landmarks, Mykonos also offers tourists heavenly beaches, numerous cafes and restaurants, and luxury shops. In the evening, we return to Paros for overnight stay.

6.day

Antiparos

The tiny island of Antiparos measures only 35 square kilometers, and its main attractions include a cave traditionally believed to be inhabited by Cyclopes and a 15th-century Venetian castle. The largest village on the island is Chora, where the main promenade, full of cafes and taverns, leads to a lively square. As everywhere in the Cyclades, there are also beautiful sandy beaches here. Overnight stay on Paros.

 

7.day

Siros

Today, we will visit another island belonging to the Cyclades archipelago – Syros. After about a two-hour cruise, we will arrive at the port of Ermoupoli, the capital of the Cyclades. After checking into the hotel, we will set out to explore.

A stroll along the stone streets will lead us to the main square of the city – Miaouli. The monumental Town Hall, designed by a famous German architect, gives the impression of not fitting into the intimate Mediterranean island. The city boasts a beautiful theater built in the style of Milan’s La Scala, and its churches are architectural gems. But Syros is above all known for its stunning beaches. Overnight stay on Syros.

8.day

Syros

Ahead of us is a peaceful day of relaxation, sun, and water. Those interested can continue exploring the island, where there will certainly be no shortage of attractions and charming spots. Those seeking relaxation by the water can freely enjoy one of the many beautiful beaches on Syros. Overnight stay on Syros.

9.day

Santorini

Today, we sail to the volcanic island of Santorini. For years, this place has attracted painters, photographers, and tourists who are passionate about the beauty of this location. We will visit Fira, and then Imerovigli, and take a stroll through two of the most beautiful places on Santorini. We will see, among other things, the Santorini Caldera. After the sightseeing, we will transfer to the hotel for overnight stay.

10.day

Nea Kameni, Thirassia, Santorini

Today, we return to the Cyclades for the last time on this trip. We will embark on a cruise to the volcanic island of Nea Kameni. It is a small, uninhabited island located in the Santorini Caldera, where we will take a walk to the crater of the still active volcano. Then, we will sail to the island of Thirassia, with a population of about 260 residents. After a short stroll, we will return by boat. Next, we will transfer to the airport and fly back to Athens. Accommodation at the hotel and overnight stay.

11.day

After breakfast, transfer to the airport and flight to Athens. Upon arrival, we will be accommodated at the hotel, and after a short rest from the journey, we can take a final stroll through the city. Free time.
