ATHENS – 2 nights

Your Greek journey begins in the capital, Athens. One of the world’s oldest cities and a cradle of civilisation, today this is a bustling modern metropolis with a vibrant nightlife and cultural scene to complement its embarrassment of historical riches. Your home for 3 nights is the Grande Bretagne, a regal colonnaded hotel a stone’s throw from Athens’ most iconic ancient relics, two of which – the Parthenon and the Acropolis – you’ll take in on a morning tour. Also included is a half-day excursion to the stunning Temple of Poseidon at Sounion, which lies on the southern tip of the Attica region around 43 miles south of Athens. Immortalised in Lord Byron’s Don Juan, these ruins are a spectacular place to watch the sun set over the Aegean Sea. Also unmissable during your time in Athens is the National Archaeological Museum, the greatest collection of Greek antiquities in the world.

MYKONOS – 3 nights

Having spent two nights in Athens you’ll fly to the vibrant, glamorous island of Mykonos for the next stop on your journey. As photogenic as the A-listers who flock here throughout the summer to lounge, shop and party, Mykonos offers something to suit every mood. Your hotel, Grace Mykonos, is a luxurious boutique bolthole which combines elegant, contemporary style with mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine and unrivalled ocean views. During your stay on the island, you’ll learn about traditional Greek cuisine with Eleni Melirrytos, who’ll guide you round local farmers’ markets to pick out fresh ingredients before teaching you how to whip them up into modern takes on classic dishes. Budding photographers will love the optional ‘Capture the Essence of Mykonos’ tour, during which a local photographer will teach you all he knows about capturing the considerable beauty of Mykonos in pictures. A tour of the nearby Vioma vineyard, adjacent to the 16th century monastery Panagia Tourliani, is a beautiful way to spend an afternoon.

SANTORINI – 3 nights

Following three nights in Mykonos, you’ll travel by sailing boat to Santorini, famed as the home of some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. You’ll be staying at Grace Santorini, which lies on a hillside in the peaceful north west coastal village of Imerovigli and is as stylish and contemporary as its sister property in Mykonos. You’ll learn about Santorini’s ancient past on a private guided tour of Akrotiri, a site known as the ‘Minoan Pompeii’, which was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1450 BC and has been cited as a possible inspiration for Plato’s account of Atlantis. After taking in the brilliantly preserved frescoes and antiquities, you’ll enjoy a fresh seafood lunch at Spilia tou Nikola, renowned as one of the finest tavernas on Santorini. Also included in your time on Santorini is a Catamaran cruise of the caldera coastline, where you can take in the volcanic landscapes and stop off to swim in natural hot springs.

PORTO HELI – 3 nights

Flying back to Athens, you’ll take a short helicopter ride to the east coast of the Peloponnese peninsula. Your home for the final stop of your Greek adventure is the exclusive resort of Amanzoe, a collection of classically-designed villas surrounded by olive groves and archaeological sites and close to the bustling town of Porto Heli. Worth visiting nearby are the Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus, a brilliantly preserved masterpiece of ancient Greek architecture; and the ruins of Mycenae, one of the central sites of Greek civilisation in the second millennium BC. Other options include a wine tasting tour in the vineyards of Nemea, which have been producing wine since the days of Homer, and a honey-making tour with a nearby bee farming family. The charming, car-free island of Spetses lies a ten-minute water taxi ride across the water, and a leisurely exploration of its quaint villages and pine forests is a great way to spend a day. After three nights at Amanzoe, your luxury Greek escape is at an end, and you will be transferred via helicopter back to Athens for your flight home.
