About this trip

Right now there are no two hotter European destinations than Mykonos and Santorini, and on our Island Escape you'll soon understand why. Endless blue and white buildings, ancient sights, azure waters, buzzing party nights and lazy sun-soaked days - if this isn't your picture of paradise, we don't know what is. Start it off with historical vibes and city life in Athens, before we hit these idyllic islands for what might just be the best week of your life. Water, sand, sunshine, delicious eats... the word bliss just doesn't do it justice.

DAY 5 - 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.

Stay

Maistros Village (or similar)

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Visit Fira, the clifftop capital of Santorini

DAYS 6-7 - 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.

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?

Stay

Maistros Village (or similar)

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Dinner at a local restaurant

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Visit Oia and soak up one of the world's most famous sunsets

    EUR 30.00

DAY 8 - Santorini to Athens

Santorini

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. 

Athens

On arrival in Athens, tick off any last sightseeing you missed in this time capsule of a city tonight. 

Stay

Dorian Inn (or similar)

DAY 9 - Depart Athens

Athens

The moment we'd all been dreading - the goodbyes. As sad as they are, 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.
