9 Days · 8 Nights
Enjoy exclusive savings on Contiki’s 9 Day Mykonos & Santorini Island Escape. There are two hotter destinations in Greece i.e. Mykonos and Santorini, and on our Island Escape you’ll soon understand why. Endless blue and white buildings, ancient sights, azure waters, staying in top quality, air-conditioned hotels – if this isn’t your picture of paradise, we don’t know what is.
Calling all Greek gods & goddesses - welcome to the heart of ancient Greece! This evening you'll meet your fellow travellers at our hotel and we'll enjoy an included dinner together tonight before our real adventures begin tomorrow. (D) Stay: Poseidon Hotel (or similar)
After breakfast we have a free morning to enjoy Athens as you like, as well as an included walking tour of the sights. Our time in Athens was amazing and well worth delaying our island time for. But delay it further? We shall not... Let's do this! 3 nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love. (B) Stay: Paradise Beach (Superior Rooms)
Here we are on a day when it feels completely fabulous to be alive. You're in Mykonos! And the day is yours to soak up sunshine and play in the sea. Choose to do things at your own pace or join us for an optional boat trip on the Aegean and soak up the gorgeous Greek sun while swimming in crystal clear waters. Tonight we head out for some free time to enjoy the local cuisine before enjoying some of Mykonos's famed nightlife.
Set your watch to island time and enjoy a glorious day soaking up the laid-back vibe of Mykonos. Or opt in for a tour out to Delos, one of the most important mythological, historical, and archaeological sites in Greece.
This morning, let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only have the time to visit just one Greek Island. We're taking to the seas again, this time in search of the island of Santorini. It's finally your turn to be the one lulling about the white-washed blue dome churches looking like a sultry summer. Home to the famous Oia sunset, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Stay: Okeanis Hotel (or similar)
Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini will not explore itself. Take a look at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, and roam the streets of Fira.
The beautiful thing about having two full days on the one island is you have time to both relax and explore. Whatever you didn't do yesterday is still up for grabs today. If you feel like you've crammed it all in already, just head to the black or red sand beaches and spend another glorious day ocean-side. Just remember to plan your day around the excursion to the iconic sunset of Oia - this is not an optional you're going to want to miss.
It's our last full day on trip - best hit up a big city we know and love and cause a little harmless havoc. Goodbye Santorini you sun soaked beauty, we're off to Athens. On arrival in Athens, tick off any last sightseeing you missed in this time capsule of a city tonight. Stay: Poseidon Hotel (or similar)
And just like that, it's time for the goodbyes. At least you have the memories. And another 300 Contiki trips to jump aboard! Make the most of your last free breakfast before you kick on to your next port of call.
