Upon our arrival in Athens, we were greeted by our private driver who whisked us away to our accommodation. After settling in, we embarked on a private guided tour of Athens Highlights and Hidden Gems. 

From the Acropolis to the New Acropolis Museum, we immersed ourselves in the ancient history and architectural marvels of the city. The day concluded with a delightful dinner at a traditional Greek tavern, where we savored local cuisine and toasted to the start of our adventure.

Our journey continued as we flew to Heraklion, Crete, where we explored the Palace of Knossos, the center of the ancient Minoan civilization. 

Learning about the myth of the Minotaur and exploring the archaeological treasures was a highlight for all of us. We then traveled to Chania, a town steeped in history, where we wandered through the old town and Venetian harbor, soaking in the Mediterranean atmosphere.

One of the most memorable days was spent at Elafonisi Beach, with its stunning pink sands and crystal-clear waters—a true paradise. We also enjoyed a gastronomy tour of Cretan villages, indulging in local delicacies and experiencing the warm hospitality of the island. 

Our time in Chania concluded with leisurely strolls through the charming streets and relaxing on its beautiful beaches.

Arriving in Corfu, we were captivated by its blend of Venetian, French, and British influences. A guided tour took us to the Achillion Palace and the UNESCO-listed Old Town, where history came alive in the narrow alleys and elegant architecture. With a free day to explore at our own pace, we discovered hidden corners and enjoyed the relaxed island vibe.
