    ITINERARY

Day 1: ATHENS 
On arrival at Athens airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel.
Overnight: Athens

Day 2: ATHENS - MYKONOS
You will be collected at your hotel and transferred to the port for your ferry to Mykonos (approx. 6 hours). On arrival on Mykonos, Greece's most famous cosmopolitan island and a whitewashed paradise in the Cyclades, you will be transferred to your hotel in Mykonos.
Overnight: Mykonos (B)

Day 3: MYKONOS
Enjoy the beach, the sun and the fun of this unique island. One of the most famous destinations worldwide and a favourite holiday spot of the jet set, Mykonos is extremely beautiful and well known for its bare hills, the amazing sandy beaches, the white country chapels, and the Cycladic architecture.
Overnight: Mykonos (B)

Day 4: MYKONOS - SANTORINI
You will be collected at your hotel and transferred to the port, for the ferry to Santorini. On arrival at Santorini, you will be transferred to your hotel.
Overnight: Santorini (B)

Day 5 - Day 6: SANTORINI
There is a lot to see on the volcanic paradise in the Cyclades that is Santorini, and for the next two days you will be entirely at leisure to do so. Cousteau looked for the lost city of Atlantis on Santorini. The present-day shape of the island is a consequence of the activity of the volcano in prehistoric times feeding the myth of the lost Atlantis. Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion dating back 3,600 years and which created the current geological caldera and some of the surrounding islands. Crescent-shaped Santorini (or Thíra), the precious gem of the Aegean, is actually a group of islands consisting of Thíra, Thirassiá, Asproníssi, Palea and Nea Kaméni in the southernmost part of Cyclades. There is much to see. One could walk the busy streets of Fira, Santorini's capital, or visit Pyrgos offering the best panoramic view of the island. Or discover what any of the numerous smaller settlements still has to offer as you wander their narrow cobblestone streets and admire the little white chapels, the cave white houses and the blue windows which have come to act as romantic symbols of the island. Or you could book an optional tour to explore some of the other islands nearby. However, you choose to spend these two days though make sure that on at least one you experience the famous sunset in Oia, an experience not to be missed.

Due to its religious significance, a decision was made to purify the island and all remains of the dead were removed from it. It was also decided that from then on no one should be born or die on the island so that no one tried to claim it as an inheritance.
