12 Day Romantic Greek Island Getaway
Photogenic villages, stunning seascapes, ancient ruins, and sunsets like you’ve never seen: Greece is pure magic and best experienced with someone you love. This romantic adventure combines the grandeur of Ancient Greece with the glamor of the gorgeous Cyclades.

We kick things off in Athens, Greece’s capital and Western civilization’s hometown, with a privately guided tour of the city’s most impressive landmark: the Acropolis. You’ll explore the UNESCO-protected citadel that dominates the skyline, visiting ancient sites like the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, and the Parthenon before viewing some of the nearly 4,000 artifacts at the Acropolis Museum.

With the help of a high-speed ferry, we leave the mainland behind and head for your next stop: the magical island of Mykonos. On a private walking tour, you’ll discover why this beautiful island has captivated visitors for centuries; first, stroll the seafront en route to the Folklore Museum of Mykonos, then visit the Panagia Paraportiani church, a picture-perfect representation of the Cyclades’ signature whitewashed architecture. Later, walk the island’s “Little Venice” neighborhood for a glimpse of its iconic windmills before settling in for a delicious lunch of meze and local wine. (You’ll also have the chance to explore the island in full on a scenic bicycle tour.)

The largest of the Cycladic islands, Naxos is also quite possibly the prettiest. (No mean feat, that.) Here, you’ll discover its treasures on a private full-day tour that introduces you to its charming villages, ancient ruins (including the half-completed “Kouros of the God Apollo” statue), and one of its signature flavors: the refreshing kitron liqueur. There’s much to see and do here, so we’ve set aside a full day of leisure with which you can shop, refresh yourself at a café, or relax on the beach.

We don’t want to play favorites, but after you’ve seen Santorini, you’ll likely agree that we saved the best for last. With a private guide, you’ll explore this impossibly beautiful island’s cozy seaside villages before stopping in at the Santo Winery, home to delicious wines made from the rare Assyrtiko grape raised in the island’s volcanic terroir and some of the most outstanding panoramas you’ll ever see. After a tasting and a visit to the neo-classical village of Megalochori, while away the afternoon relaxing on Perivolos’ stunning beach. The tour concludes with a suitably romantic showstopper: a full-day cruise around the Santorini’s majestic shores aboard your very own catamaran. Swim and snorkel the crystal-clear waters of the famed Red and White beaches, enjoy the therapeutic effects of a hot-mud bath at a hot spring, and catch one of the world’s most magnificent sunsets from the deck over a delicious dinner of grilled seafood and crisp Santorinian wine. The Greek Islands may not have invented romance, but they perfected it.
