Athens  

Your adventure begins

Hopefully you're prepared, because your Odyssey has already begun. Don't worry though; it's going to be a whole lot luxurious than the original one, although the siren song of the timeless lands you will visit may well be rather difficult to tear yourself away from. To start proceedings off right, you'll zip away from the airport in a luxury taxi, and then be met at your comfy hotel by a fleet-footed messenger who will bestow upon you all the documents necessary for your upcoming adventure. From there, it's up to you how you enjoy your first legendary day in Athens.

Athens  

Athens: new and old.

Once Dawn has spread her rosy fingers over the city and you've partaken of all the good things at hand for breakfast, you'll meet your professional guide to start your tour of the city. You'll be guided through both Athenses: the new and the old; the magnificent ancient ruins set off by today's modern architecture. This means you'll go from the mythical Acropolis, Parthenon and temple of Athena Nike, through the Roman Temple of Olympic Zeus, and then pay your respects to the Unknown Soldier and Parliament House. To run the full gamut, you'll end up at the Acropolis Museum, a spectacular example of thoughtful cutting-edge architecture. Again, once you've seen all these marvels, the rest of the day is left to just you and this marvelous city

A dinner straight out of folklore

It's fitting that, in the cradle of democracy, you'd be free to do what you want. Well, in this lively ancient spirit, you'll be able to do whatever you want today in Athens. Your destination expert, of course, will have some pretty tasty suggestions to dish up to you, such as an afternoon tour to Cape Sounio or a full-day cruise on the Saronic Gulf. One thing that is a must, though, is your sumptuous dinner tonight, which will take place at a traditional Greek Restaurant, backed by a live folk program. Your toe will be tapping in no time.

After your breakfast today, you'll be trading one intensely beautiful Greek Island for another, as you wend your way Santorini-wards. Those in the know say this is one of the Ten Best Islands anywhere around, and the view from Oia and Imerovigli will be enough to justify this status on its own. Then, there's the little issue of an exquisite sunset to take into account. Definitely Top Ten material, in anyone's books.
