Led by an expert local guide, it delves into lesser-known historical facts and myths surrounding iconic monuments like the Parthenon, Propylaia, Erechtheion, Agrippa monument, and Nike Temple.

With a focus on local expertise, this tour promises a unique and in-depth look into the marvels of the Acropolis.

Tantalize your senses with the aromas of specialty food shops and lively open-air markets while savoring unique local delicacies like small-batch olive oils, rich baklava, savory souvlaki, and the creamy indulgence of bougatsa – a phyllo pastry filled with cream.

DAY 4ATHENS / NAXOS

At the indicated time you will be transferred to the port for your high speed boat ride to Naxos. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel.

DAY 5NAXIAN VILLAGES TOUR

Starting from your hotel, we’ll journey to the charming village of Damalas, where we’ll witness the magic of traditional pottery-making at a local workshop. From there, we’ll explore Halki, known for its neoclassical architecture and the birthplace of the renowned “Kitron” liqueur, at Vallindas Distillery. Our adventure continues to the picturesque village of Apiranthos, where we’ll stroll along marble-paved streets and immerse ourselves in its rich cultural heritage. Then, we’ll visit the historic site of Flerio to admire the ancient Kouros statue and reflect on its significance. Finally, in Eggares, we’ll discover the traditional olive pressing techniques, gaining insight into a disappearing way of life.

DAY 6NAXIAN COOKING EXPERIENCE

Starting from your hotel we first head to the village of Eggares. Lying on a fertile plain traversed by two rivers, Eggares is the island’s main supplier of produce and a truly blessed place. Of course agriculture in Greece is tied to the cultivation of olive trees and the production of olive oil and that is exactly what we are going to take a closer look at through a visit to the village’s olive press museum. This traditional olive press dates back to 1884, however some locals will claim it has been around since the beginning of the 19th century. You will get to see the tools that were used at the time and learn about the process of manual olive oil extraction that has been in use for millennia, and now belongs to the past. Having learnt everything about olive oil it is now time to use it!

Situated on the same plain as Eggares is the nearby village of Galini (meaning “serenity”) where we will set out on a gastronomic quest with the help of our host and teacher, Mrs Voula( a local woman who is happy to share her cooking knowledge). The first step to making a great dish is picking out the ingredients and what ingredients would be better than the home-grown fruits, vegetables and herbs found in our host’s own authentic organic farm. You have the chance to see where organic products grow and have a real taste of cultivation and farming .Having assembled everything, we are going to create a traditional Naxian dish from scratch! Enjoy!

DAY 7NAXOS / SANTORINI

At the indicated time you will be transferred to the port for your high speed boat ride to Santorini. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel.

DAY 9SANTORINI AT LEISURE

Step into the world of Santorini, where nature’s raw power has shaped the landscape into a symphony of dramatic cliffs and breathtaking vistas. The half-moon island, a testament to a colossal volcanic eruption, stands as a reminder of the forces that have sculpted this extraordinary place. Yet, amidst this rugged terrain, human ingenuity has found its expression in the charming villages, their whitewashed houses and blue-domed chapels adding a touch of vibrancy and warmth.
