At a glance

The best way to get to know a country is to explore its cuisine, so get ready to nibble and sip your way through some of the best Greece has to offer. Work up a healthy appetite as you explore the streets of Athens. As well as getting the chance to take in life in the capital, you will have the opportunity to sample olive oil, cheese and cured meats, and if you have a sweet tooth, you won’t want to miss a visit to a local bakery.

Raise a glass and learn more about the history and production of ouzo and tsipouro, and let a beekeeper share some of the secrets of their craft with you in Nafplio. Crete is your next destination, where you’ll spend two nights in Chania, exploring its local food markets and learning how to make Cretan classics in a cooking class.

There’s still more food and wine to discover when you arrive in Santorini. You will visit a couple of family-run wine estates and spend time with an experienced sommelier. Then enjoy some swimming and snorkelling, and drink in the beauty of the region with a sunset cruise.

There are few places where the past comes to life in quite the same way as in Athens. Often referred to as the cradle of Western civilisation, it’s a city bursting at the seams with culture, intrigue, and beauty. It’s not just a place for history buffs, however, it’s also one of the liveliest European capitals. A thriving café culture ensures you’re not left waning in between all the sightseeing and you’ll never have to venture far to enjoy the vibrant nightlife.

Three nights in Santorini Three nights in Santorini

Floating in the southern Aegean Sea is a little slice of Greek heaven. A huge volcanic eruption 3,500 years ago left a caldera which turned the then- circular Santorini into a crescent shaped island, one that has been charming visitors since they first arrived.

Santorini is the largest island of a small archipelago, wrapping its arms protectively around the islands of Palea, Nea and Thirasia. Sheer cliffs hundreds of metres high shield coves and beaches made up of red, white and black sand, while pretty villages of limewashed cubic houses creep up the sides, nestled into every nook and cranny.
