Spend part of your summer in the birthplace of modern democracy, Greece. Both ancient and modern, the country is a mix of ruins and resorts, tranquil islands and busy cities, and distinct cultures from the mainland to islands.
Start your tour in the ancient city of Athens and explore both classical architecture and modern city life. Hike through the Acropolis and take in the glory of the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena Nike. Leave the land behind and board ferries for island-hopping and learning in the Aegean sea. Start your island adventure off on Paros, an island surrounded by beaches with crystal clear waters. Head south to the stunning and glamorous island of Santorini, known for its iconic white buildings with azure rooftops lining the hillsides. From Santorini, we head south to Crete, the country’s largest and most populous island, where you can rejuvenate on dazzling beaches, and swim in clear blue waters. From Crete, head back north to spend a final few days in Athens.
