From Athens to the Greek Isles, this 11-day trip—including flights from New York City, DC, and Chicago—takes guests to ancient ruins, boutique hotels, 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, an invigorating mish-mash of historical wonder and contemporary energy painted blue and white. With so much to see and do—and friendly Athenians beckoning from every cafe and storefront—it's hard to know where to begin. The Acropolis, Parthenon, and ancient Agora marketplace put you in the heart of classical antiquity, while world-class shopping and never-ending nightlife prove that modern-day Athens is just as captivating.

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 dramatically winding roads and Cycladic architecture of Paros feel lifted right from a glamorous movie scene, while stylish cafés, shops, and restaurants give the islands an trendy ambiance very different from anything you'll experience on the Greek mainland. Find out why the craggy coastline, iconic white cliffside homes, and inimitable cuisine of Santorini have been named the world's best island by Travel + Leisure.

You shouldn't have to choose between the staggering significance of Athens and the mythical beauty of the Greek Isles, and with this 11-day trip, you don't have to. Keytours Vacations lets you experience it all—to the very last drop.
