Discover Greece in 1 week
|2 nights:||Athens for its rich ancient history including the famous acropole.|
|3 nights:||Paros island, including a day trip to Antiparos island for a relaxed experience, stunning beaches and traditional villages.|
|2 nights:||Mykonos island, famous for its parties. Alternatively, go to Santorini island, the famous island known for its amazing scenery.|
" This itinerary leads you to discover the capital city and introduces you to the Greek islands in the Cyclades. If partying in Mykonos is not for you, then from Paros, take a boat to the island of Santorini, in the South of the Cyclades instead. "
Some general information:
The three most famous islands in the Cyclades are Santorini, Mykonos and Paros. As Santorini get very touristy, my personal favorite is Paros which is more relaxing and still as stunning. Therefore I will take you through Paros as well as pointing out where and how you could go to Santorini (since it is still the most famous island of the Cyclades!)
For transportation, the best is to use the ferry to travel between islands. Ferries run a few times per day but I would recommend reserving your ticket a day or two in advance, especially during peak travel season. Mykonos, Paros and Santorini have airports and I would recommend you to return home using one of these airports. If you decide to go back to Athens by ferry, bear in mind that the traveling time is depended on sea conditions and that the traffic from one of the ports to the airport can be significantly slow.
