Day 1:Welcome to Santorini! Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by your driver and taken to your hotel. Enjoy your first stunning and unforgettable sunset! HOTEL HINT: Santorini is known for its boutique Cliffside properties! The Cliffsides are small and traditional properties built directly into the Cliffside. More important than the location of the property, is to find the one you like the best. You will not be staying in the same town of the hotel each night but visiting the many towns of Santorini - Oia, Fira, Pyrgos, Amoudi, Immerovigli and many of the others. You can enjoy beautiful sunsets from most of these towns!
Day 2 & 3:Enjoy your days at leisure to explore Santorini. There are great optional tours to enjoy during your stay on the island. Enjoy a wine tasting tour of the famous Santorini wines, visit Akrotiri, a town buried by lava after the volcano exploded and enjoy a lunch or dinner cruise around Santorini with stops at secluded bays for a swim or snorkeling as well as sailing and swimming through the famous volcano crater of Santorini. Most important, enjoy the incredible sunsets each evening to create memories of a lifetime.
Day 4:After breakfast, meet your driver in the hotel lobby to be taken to the pier for your hydrofoil to Ios. Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by your driver and taken to your hotel. Welcome to Ios! The coastline of this predominantly mountainous island with its countless chapels, its olive trees and its vineyards is adorned with small, attractive coves. These features combined with the crystal-clear sea and its superb sandy beaches are what makes Ios the popular island it is! Locally called Nios, this is an island whose history goes back to prehistoric times. According to Herodotus, the “poet of poets”, the “god-like” Homer was buried at Plakotos, in the northern part of the island. Pausanias tells us that there was an inscription at Delphi confirming that poet’s interment on Ios, the homeland of his mother. Hora, the main town, stands on the site of the ancient city and is a typical Cyclonic settlement, with whitewashed house, narrow alleys and chapels.
Day 5 & 6:Enjoy your days at leisure to explore Ios.
Day 7:After breakfast, meet your driver in the hotel lobby to be taken to the pier for your hydrofoil to Santorini. Upon arrival, transfer to the airport for your flight to Athens to connect to your international flight.
