Day 1: Friday, Corfu Town - CORFU
Awash with colourful flowers, Corfu is big on beauty. It’s known as the Emerald Isle, and its golden beaches, lush green landscape and colourful villages will have you constantly reaching for your camera.
Soak up the views at Bella Vista, Corfu’s most famous lookout point. From here, you can peer over sleepy seaside villages like Paleokastritsa, and the island’s entire west coast. In Corfu Town itself, stand in the shadow of two gigantic fortresses. See the 16th-century church of Ayios Spyridhon. And then wander round the interesting archaeological museum.
Relax on the shimmering sands of Glyfada beach, one of the most popular sunning spots on the island. Top up your tan. Take a dip in the crystal waters. Or simply laze beneath a hot sun.
Day 2: Saturday, At Sea
Day 3: Sunday, Mykonos Town  07:00 - 18:00
A jewel in the Aegean, this sun-blushed island is sprinkled with sugar-cube houses and whitewashed windmills. It’s a popular corner of Greece loved by everyone, from millionaires to backpackers, yet somehow it’s managed to stay delightfully unspoilt.
Wander through the narrow labyrinthine-like lanes of Mykonos Town, or Chora as it’s also called, crammed with tiny churches, shrines, shops and cafés. Pause for a photo opportunity at the striking white Paraportiani Church.
Take a stroll along the seafront known as Little Venice. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for places that appeared in Shirley Valentine, like the colourful harbour for instance. Relax at Platis Gialos beach, a long ribbon of golden sand on the south coast of the island. The coastline here is backed by a stretch of cocktail bars, many of which offer waiter service to the beach.
See the island’s sights in style – from the front seat of a four-wheel drive. Rev your way to the pretty village of Ano Mera and the beaches of Kalo Livadi and Ornos.
Day 4: Monday, Kusadasi (Turkey)  08:00 - 17:00
Laze away the day on the silky sands of Kusadasi or head for the ruins of Ephesus for more sights than you can point a camera at. It’s your holiday, your call.
Take a trip to Ephesus, the Mediterranean’s best-preserved classical city. The marble pillars of the Library of Celsus support intricate friezes and sculptures, while the enormous theatre offers up superb views over the city.
Make tracks for St John’s Church. St John is said to have lived here with the Virgin Mary after being cast out of Jerusalem. Legend has it he’s also buried here. Close by, the pretty hillside village of Sirince is also worth a visit – it’s famous for its homemade wines, and plenty of places offer tasting sessions.
Saddle up and discover Kusadasi on horseback, or swim with the horses at Pamucak Beach. Try your hand at quad biking to see another side of the city. You’ll speed along the coast, soaking up incredible sea views as you go.
Day 5: Tuesday, Piraeus (of Athens)  09:00 - 17:00
Trip over reminders of the past in ancient Athens, where cultural treasures twinkle back at you at every turn. It’s a real gold medal winner of a city.
Scale the heights of the sun-bleached Acropolis for awesome views, then take a look at the Parthenon, perched atop Athens’ most famous hill.
Explore Plaka, the Medieval quarter at the foot of the Acropolis. The 19th-century lanes are crammed with tavernas, and twist and turn to meet the equally atmospheric Monastiraki street markets.
From old to new – take a wander round the up-market Kolonaki district, which is packed with chic boutiques and ritzy restaurants.
Be in Syntagma – or Constitution - Square in time to see the skirted soldiers perform the changing-of-the-guard.
Check out the Corinth Canal, which connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf. This waterway was considered one of the greatest technological achievements of its time.
Day 6: Wednesday, Chania - Crete  08:00 - 17:00
Chania doesn’t just have one specialised subject. This region on Crete’s north coast has brushed up on beaches, history, geography and cookery. Blue Flags skewer the stretches of sand in this part of Crete, the old town is said to be the prettiest in Greece, the Samaria Gorge is protected as a World Biosphere Reserve, and the menus in the harbour restaurants do justice to classic Greek dishes like bourkei pastries and Cretan pilaf.
Most visitors head up to the mountain village of Archanes under the pretext that they’re going to see the Minoan ruins. But really, they’re there to try the local wine that’s renowned across Greece.
Just over an hour’s drive from Chania, a 16-kilometre cleft dissects the Cretan countryside. The Samaria Gorge is best explored on-foot via one of the trails that criss-cross their way through the reserve.
Day 7: Thursday, Kalamata  07:00 - 14:00
This quiet, quaint pocket of Greece is the place to escape modern life. Hugging the coast along Messinia and the Main peninsula, it’s a collection of great beaches and small towns. Central squares are lined with flowers and tavernas. And locals congregate to play backgammon, sip ouzo and tuck into bowls of the famous Kalamata olives. Best of all, it’s a place where tour parties come in sprinkles not spades.
Standing guard on a rocky outcrop, the Ottoman fortress is Methoni’s big draw. Get to it by crossing a weather-beaten stone bridge and you’ll find twisting parapets, ruined churches and the octagonal ‘bourtzi’ tower cast out in the water.
Beach-lovers will find plenty of places to unravel their towels. The beaches in Kalamata and nearby Yialova are all buttermilk sands and turquoise seas.
Burrowed in the Mani peninsula are the Diros Caves. These underground sea chambers were once places of worship for Stone Age tribes. Taking a punt across the lakes is like being in another world.
Day 8: Friday, Corfu Town
Awash with colourful flowers, Corfu is big on beauty. It’s known as the Emerald Isle, and its golden beaches, lush green landscape and colourful villages will have you constantly reaching for your camera.
Soak up the views at Bella Vista, Corfu’s most famous lookout point. From here, you can peer over sleepy seaside villages like Paleokastritsa, and the island’s entire west coast. In Corfu Town itself, stand in the shadow of two gigantic fortresses. See the 16th-century church of Ayios Spyridhon. And then wander round the interesting archaeological museum.
