SANTORINI & MYKONOS PHOTO TOUR
DAY 1 – ATHENS / MYKONOS
Upon arrival at Athens International Airport, we will take a flight from mainland to our first island destination, Mykonos. We will spend 2 nights stay here, with plenty of free time to relax by the hotel pool or on the beautiful white beaches, and explore the towns and villages with their historic windmills and churches.
DAY 2 – MYKONOS
Today is a pure leisure day! Enjoy life in Mykonos – take in the sights, stop at any of the cute little bars for a drink or do some little shopping. When night falls, the island transform into a buzz of pulsing music, free-flowing drinks and beautiful people. The nightlife of Mykonos is marketed as among the best in Europe, attracting famous DJs to its renowned clubs and beach bars. While Mykonos’ nightlife focuses mainly on bars rather than clubs, a number of notable clubs can still be found throughout the island. This is our last night in Mykonos, so make the most of it!
DAY 3-5 – SANTORINI
Hopefully you aren’t too hungover! Just in case, you are free to relax and recover until it is time to be picked up from the hotel. We will head to the port for embarkation to the ferry, and begin our journey to Santorini. This rocky volcanic island jutting out of the sea, is one of the most beautiful spectacles of the Mediterranean. Enjoy a three night stay on this glamorous island, exploring the whitewashed towns, stunning sunset panoramas and volcanic-sand beaches.
Santorini’s commercial development is focused on the caldera-edge clifftops in the island’s west, with large clusters of its famous whitewashed buildings nesting at impressive heights, spilling along the cliffsides and offering picture-perfect views from land or sea. Fira, the island’s busy capital, sprawls north into villages called Firostefani (about a 15-minute walk from Fira) and Imerovigli (the highest point of the caldera edge, about a half-hour walk from Fira). A path running through these villages is lined with upmarket hotels, restaurant terraces and endless photo opportunities. These three conjoined settlements draw most visitors, together with the stunning and quite exclusive village of Oia in Santorini’s north.
The east coast is lesser known than the celebrated, elevated west coast. Here, the caldera-edge heights have sloped down to sea level, and volcanic-sand beaches and resorts offer a very different vibe. The beaches are lined with black sand; on the south coast, there’s a string of beaches famed for their multicoloured sand – dramatic Red Beach is a traveller’s favourite.
The island’s interior is dotted with vineyards and traditional villages that let you see beyond the tourist hustle. Make a stop in Pyrgos for great eats and a wander through charming backstreets.
