has history, culture, and beaches – not to mention the food and wine,” says Eirini Demetelin, a Virtuoso advisor from Québec. “It’s a great holiday for families, friends, couples, and solo travelers, and is an ideal spot in spring, summer, and fall.”
Demetelin suggests two nights in Athens
, time for the requisite Acropolis and Parthenon visits, plus dinner at the Hotel Grande Bretagne’s
GB Roof Garden. Then head southeast to Mykonos
, the twin stars of many Greek Isles fantasies – and home to some of the country’s best hotels and restaurants. Cox & Kings’ ten-day trip
covers this itinerary, plus three days in Crete.
“Yacht charters and villa vacations are hot these days,” Demetelin says. There are more than 200 inhabited Greek islands, and your advisor can help you choose the best one for your travel style, such as Naxos for amazing beaches or Lefkada for inspiring culture. Advisors can work with Hellenic Tours
, one of Virtuoso’s on-site tour connections in Greece, to secure a villa rental. Villa company Onefinestay added Mykonos to its portfolio this year, including Super Paradise One, a whitewashed, five-bedroom beauty with an infinity pool overlooking Super Paradise Beach.
