Three weeks exploring the stunning Greek, Sicilian and Aeolian islands will leave you breathless. Land in Athens where you’ll witness the grandeur of the Acropolis, Panathenaic Stadium, the National Gardens and Zeus Temple. Then enjoy a seven day sailing adventure visiting uninhabited and busy islands alike. One of such islands, Hydra, was built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic gulf, and is one of the most romantic destinations in Greece. Here you’ll see 500 donkeys taking the place of public transportation. The south side of another such island, Moni has beautiful caves and cliffs perfect for snorkelling.

With your feet back on solid ground discover Mt. Etna volcano where you can’t miss volcanically grown wine (enjoy a wine tasting at Cottanera Winery). In Milazzo stroll along the ancient Strada Reale and see the Sicilian Romanesque style Cathedral, begun in 1131 and adorned with Byzantine mosaics. Continue to Agrigento to explore the legendary Valley of the Temples, where the remains of seven Doric temples stand in a breathtaking setting of almond groves and olive trees. Finish off your adventure in Syracuse or choose to stay longer and ask us about extension options.
