DAY 1 - Arrive Rome
Rome

Isn't it great to be alive? Particularly on days like today - kicking it in Rome & meeting a new pack of legends who you'll explore the Med with. Today, after you've settled into your hotel, we'll kick off the jaw-dropping experiences with a trip to some of Rome's most iconic spots. Hello Colosseum, hello Trevi...the sites will blow your mind literally at every corner. We'll refuel before we hit up the famous Trastevere district for a night out before catching some zzz's to make the most of tomorrow.

Open your eyes this morning and give yourself a few minutes to let the reality sink in … you may even need to pinch yourself a few times. Yes, you are actually in Rome! Opt to be guided around the Roman Forum and Colosseum first up, continuing to file info into the brain under "mind-blowing historical facts." The rest of the day is yours to chow pizza, sip coffee, watch the Vespas fly by, and just generally get in the swing of all things Italian.

It's Day-3 and the bucket list has already had a few ticks - today, it's "visit the smallest country in the world." Also known as the Vatican City, it is a masterpiece of artwork and architecture. Ramp up your last night in Rome with an Italian feast (we're talking pastas, succulent meats and traditional Roman delights) and a evening on the town with your travel buddies. Bellissimo!

Sorrento
Stop off on the way to the Amalfi Coast to enjoy some spectacular views over the Bay of Naples.
Amalfi

Sojourning to the south we find ourselves in Sorrento, the place you've seen on Instagram countless times, always being  stabbed by a pang of jealousy. It's finally your turn! Italian Riviera vibes will kick off pronto as we step into a glamorous afternoon of wine and mozzarella tasting to really get into the swing of things. You're living the high life now, aren't you!

Before we farewell Italy, there's a chance to peel back the layers of history at ancient Pompeii. It's here where a volcanic erruption destroyed an entire city, which after re-discovery gives explorers a peek into ancient Roman life. Utterly fascinating and a must-see when you're in this part of the world.

Bari

After taking in the rugged beauty of the boot's south, we board our overnight ferry to Greece. Don't be ashamed if you need to wipe away a tear or two as we plough through the Ionian Sea watching Italy get smaller.

Overnight Adriatic Ferry
Oh hello there...we're pulling up in Greece! The awe of this country's mainland will begin shortly after our arrival as we catch a glimpse of Corinth Canal. This manmade passageway squeezes boats through it's path, sandwiched by two steep cliffs and sitting over gloriously blue ocean.

DAY 9 - Athens
Athens
Say farewell to the team, and take the day to explore Athens your way. High on the agenda should be throwing down some dolmades (vine leaves), some grilled meats, washed down with an Ouzito, the Greek's version of mojito. All in the name of keeping cool in the heat of course! Those looking for shopping could head to Syntagma Square and make tracks for department store Attica, flex the credit card, then finish off the day in style at a rooftop bar. Tomorrow, it's a change of scene on island time. Let's go!

DAY 13 - Mykonos to Santorini
Mykonos

This morning, let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only have the time and money to visit just one Greek Island. Those poor unfortunate souls...

Santorini

Saddle up! 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 babe.  Home to the famous Oia sunset, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Ah, life.

Overnight: Okeanis Beach Hotel

DAY 14 - Santorini
Santorini
Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini will not explore itself. Take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, and roam the streets of Fira. 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.
 
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the main town of Fira
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Santorini - Spectacular Oia Village
EUR 70.00
Sunset in Oia
EUR 28.00
DAY 15 - Santorini
Santorini

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. Ain't life grand? 

Overnight: Okeanis Beach Hotel

DAY 16 - Santorini to Ios
Santorini

Say your so longs to Santorini this morning. We have one last Greek Island to hop to, and we promise she's magnificent.

Ios

A bit more rugged and remote than Santorini and Mykonos, Ios will prove a nice change of scenery. But thankfully, there will be no change in the hours spent ocean side and good times had.

  Overnight: Far Out Ios

DAY 17 - Ios
Ios

Another day, another chance to soak up the Greek sun and frolic in the sand without a care in the world. Get some adrenalin in with some watersports, or if you haven't done so already, go explore the pretty town and down a hearty meal at a local cafe. You're going to need the fuel if you want to hang out in the party scene of Hora until the break of dawn.  

 Overnight: Far Out Ios

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Sailing Spectacular Ios
EUR 43.00
DAY 18 - Ios
Ios

Don’t underestimate the power of this village. When the sun sets, this place really comes to life. As such, we suggest a day out on the water getting salty on a boat trip, or a full day of pool hangs and beach time so you're all sun-kissed and feeling floaty by the time the night rolls in. 

 Overnight: Far Out Ios

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit Ios town
DAY 19 - Ios to Athens
Ios

While choking back the tears and waving miserably at the dreamy islands of Greece, try to think positive thoughts: we have a boat ride to enjoy this morning, as well as one more night together in the city of Athens. 

Athens

One last dose of Athens and one last chance to hang out together as the Greece loving squad that we are. 

 Overnight: Poseidon Hotel

DAY 20 - Depart Athens
Athens

Hugs, tears, and a final batch of reminiscing; it's astounding how close a group can get in just two short weeks. Nothing says bonding quite like the good life. The Croatia Island Hopper is probably the only way to really ease the pain of this goodbye. #NOREGRETS

Great Value for money! Good mix of activities and free time. A few of the hotels were questionable as they were too far out to do anything also I would skip some of the group dinners as they are way overpriced for what you get. Overall amazing trip with amazing people! The Amalfi Coast was just Beautiful

The trip was wonderful- from the group of people to the tour guide to the sights. My only critique is that the hotels and included meals need to be better. The hotels were out of the way and the one we stayed in Salerno was in a sketchy area. The rooms were tiny and one hotel didn’t even have WiFi. The only hotel that was nice was the one we stayed in Athens. I was not impressed by any of the ones in Italy. Also included meals need to have more than one food option for people who don’t like that choice. Other than those two areas, the trip was a blast. Romeo was an amazing tour guide and was full of information for us.

For what we received in terms of transportation and tour manager (Gennaro and Fabrizio Romeo) we had an excellent experience. The hotels were good except for the one hotel in Salerno, Italy that was not a great place to stay at because they were limiting us in letting us use the pool, the breakfast was not great and we could not even go to the rooftop bar and we did not expect to be staying at that hotel. We were told we would be staying in the town of Maiori. The price to tour and see what we saw is what will allow us to look into future Contiki trips.

This trip was incredible, I have no complaints! But do your research beforehand so that you know what to expect. The Mediterranean Escape was a slower pace than most Contiki trips, giving 3 days in Rome, 3 days on the Amalfi Coast and 2 nights in Athens (as well as 1 overnight ferry trip). The cruise on the other hand hit many different places and didn't allow for much time on any of them, sometimes doing 2 islands in one day. This portion was more like highlights of the Greek islands instead of an in depth exploration. My one piece of advice is to spend the extra money to book a cabin with a window - it's absolutely worth it.
