After planning a nice six days trip to “incredible Crete”, we thought of combining it with an acquaintance with two of the most spectacular islands in the Aegean, Santorini of the volcanoes and the cosmopolitan Mykonos.
Of course, the approach of the islands will not be cosmopolitan, according to the principles of our office, but we will not try to avoid a little luxury.
So we will get to know Crete with an alternative approach that will include its wonderful mythological, historical and sociological environment, its music and dances, the beautiful nature, the beaches, the architecture of its traditional villages and cities and the Venetian castles. The feeling from this visit will be unique.
For more than 4,500 years, Santorini has had a great cultural connection with Crete. According to the prevailing opinion, the destruction of the Minoan civilization is due to the big eruption of the volcano of Santorini (17th Century BC) and other smaller eruptions. We will visit the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, we will taste the wonderful local wine variety “Assyrtiko”, we will swim on the red and black beach, we will enjoy the sunset of Oia and the view of the caldera, which we will visit by boat.
In Mykonos we will visit the famous and beautiful beaches of the island, the labyrinthine small town of Mykonos with its intense nightlife and the nearby sacred uninhabited island Delos, the place where Leto gave birth to the god Apollo and the goddess Artemis.
We will return to Athens with the best memories.
