Arrival at Athens International Airport. Meet and greet with our representative and transfer to the hotel. Check in and afternoon at leisure. For your first night we suggest you an unforgettable Athens by night orientation tour followed by folklore dance show and dinner. Back to the hotel. Overnight in Athens.
Early breakfast & pick up from hotel for Athens city tour. You’ll see the Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympic Games of modern times were held in 1896 (short stop). Continue and pass by the Prime Minister’s residence (Ex Royal Palace) guarded by the Evzones in their colourful uniform, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Hadrian’s Arch, the Parliament and the memorial to the Unknown soldier, the Academy, the University, the National Library, The Constitution Square (Syntagma). Arrive in Acropolis and visit the Architectural Masterpieces of Golden Age of Athens: The Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, and the Erechtheion and finally “the harmony between material and spirit”, the Monument that “puts order in the mind”, the Parthenon. In the afternoon we will be transferred to Piraeus Port for our embarkation to Crete Island (Heraklion). Overnight on board (cabins). Arrival next day early in the morning.
The birthplace of El Greco and Nikos Kazantzakis, Iraklio (also called Heraklion) is perhaps Crete’s most underrated destination. Sure, if you arrive with a tranquil Greek holiday in mind, Greece’s bustling fifth-largest city can initially be an assault on the senses. Transfer to the Hotel and free time at leissure. We suggest you Chania tour (2.5hours approximately from Heraklion).
A chance to visit the amazing 4000 years old Minoan Palace, we spend the morning here visiting the site and enjoy the guided tour learning the history of the first civilization in Europe and wonder at the legendary home of the Minotaur.
After our morning of history the next stop will be into the wine growing region of Peza.
Here you can learn all about wine making and enjoy some wine tasting too. The wine is on sale along with some local produce from the area in this lush region.
Onwards next to the capital city, Heraklion. The guide will lead us through the streets towards the central market area where you can find a variety of goods on sale. If shopping is not for you why not relax in the main square and enjoy a coffee and Bougatsa, the local custard pie. Overnight Heraklion.
