From Athens to the Greek Isles, this 11-day trip to Greece—flights included—takes guests to ancient ruins, four-star resorts, fishing villages, bustling markets, romantic restaurants, and more.

The Destination
If you're visiting Greece—the cradle of civilization—you have to start at the source: Athens. The country's capital city is an invigorating mishmash of ancient wonder and youthful energy. But with so much to see and do, and so many friendly Athenians to meet, it's hard to know where to start. For a look at classical antiquity, make your way to the Acropolis, Parthenon, and ancient Agora marketplace. For world-class shopping and never-ending nightlife, the pedestrian-friendly downtown area showcases modern-day Athens in all its cosmopolitan glamour.

Once you've worn out the city (or vice versa), you'll find all the laid-back luxury you can dream up in the Greek Isles. The winding roads and Cycladic architecture of Paros and Santorini looks like a scene from the movies, while the islands' stylish cafes, shops, and restaurants give them an undeniable "cool" very different from anything you'll experience on the Greek mainland. And when it comes to beach vacations, there's nowhere like the Isles to replenish your vitamin-D deficiency. While Paros is home to one of the world's great windsurfing and kiteboarding scenes, Santorini offers an unparalleled location from which to watch sunsets over the Aegean Sea.

Experience two different sides of Greece with this trip to Athens and the Greek Isles, courtesy of Keytours Vacations.
