8 Days Mykonos, Paros, Naxos, Santorini Greece Tour Itinerary

Overview

Mykonos retains its bohemian spirit while remaining the most popular and cosmopolitan summer resort. Many people are unaware that Mykonos is an island with a “dual personality.” On the one side, it’s vibrant, bright, and cosmopolitan, yet it’s also quite charming, with cobblestone streets, whitewashed buildings, churches, and windmills.

Paros is a wonderful location in the heart of the Aegean Sea, with its unparalleled natural beauty, charming towns, and classic Cycladic buildings. The picturesque villages of Prodromos to admire the windmills, Lefkes with the stunning view from above, and Marbles to visit the church of Taxiarchis will entice visitors, but if you truly want to experience the authentic and classic side of Paros, visit its hinterland and wander in the picturesque villages of Prodromos to admire the windmills, Lefkes with the stunning view from above, and Marbles to visit the church of Taxiarchis.

Naxos is a mountainous island with deep ravines, springs, cedar woods, caverns, and endless sandy beaches. The renowned place on the island is a stroll in Chora, which is situated amphitheatrically on a hill with Kastropolitia towering at its highest point. The small uphill paths will take you to the Venetian Castle (built in 1207), where you may explore through its twisting alleyways and end up at Portara, a monument and Naxos icon.

Santorini is an island that actually hangs on the edge of the cliff, and it is unique in the world for its beauty, charm, and history. There aren’t many sites in the world where you can swim in crystal blue seas while climbing the crater of a massive active volcano in the midst of the sea.

The spirit of the island will overwhelm your senses as you watch the sunset from the lovely Oia!

Enjoy your vacation to those magnificent locations and… experience your Greek story!

Package includes 7 nights’ stay at a hotel of your choosing with breakfast, transfers, and ferry tickets.

Arrival in Mykonos

Upon your arrival in Mykonos, transfer to your hotel. Check in and overnight.

We begin with a one-of-a-kind rural excursion. Our first destination will be the gorgeous beach Ag. Ioannis, which has the greatest view of Delos Island, where we will witness fisherman and their boats at the little pier, as well as a private chapel and residences built in traditional Cycladic architecture. In the most traditional town of Ano Mera, you may also visit the monastery Panagia Tourliani, which was erected in the 16th century, and then we will have ample free time to wander about the square. The next destination is Kalafatis beach, where you may unwind before returning to town. We will also go to the Paraportiani and Saint Nicholas churches.

Mykonos to Santorini

Morning transfer to the port to board the ferry to Santorini. Upon your arrival in Santorini, transfer to your hotel. We propose an afternoon visit to Oia to enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the Aegean Sea. Overnight.

Santorini

We'll begin with the Akrotiri Archaeological Site. Akrotiri is a Bronze Age village on Santorini's volcanic island (Thera). The village was devastated by a massive eruption in the 17th century BC and buried by volcanic ash, which preserved the entire city in ideal circumstances, earning it the nickname "Prehistoric Pompei." We'll continue on to Red Beach, which is recognized for the distinctive color of its sand and the slope behind it. We continue with Perivolos black sand beach, one of the longest beaches in the Cyclades and the greatest beach in Santorini, considered the island's trendiest beach. We will go through Megalochori (Walking Tour), one of the island's most stunning traditional towns.

Santorini to Paros

Morning transfer to the port to board the ferry to Paros. Upon your arrival in Paros, transfer to your hotel. Overnight.

Paros - Day of leisure with island attractions

Parikia is the capital city of Paros and is located on the island's northwest coast. Nestled amid this are tiny churches such as the church of Agios Konstantinos, which was erected on top of the ancient temple of the goddess Demeter, and the remnants of the Frankish fortress, which is located in the middle of the old town. Lunch in a tavern. The Church of Panagia Ekatontapyliani is one of Greece's oldest, finest maintained, and most significant churches. Naoussa is a lovely village on the island's north coast. The remnants of a Venetian stronghold from the 15th century may be seen here. Overnight.

From Paros to Naxos

Transfer to the ferry terminal for your trip to Naxos. Naxos is the Cyclades' largest and greenest island. It boasts towering mountains, rich valleys, lush green gorges, breathtaking seascapes, and traditional villages located high on mountain summits where the residents still wear traditional attire and live off the land. Beautiful medieval churches, monasteries, and Venetian castles cohabit peacefully with Cycladic architecture in Naxos. Transfer to your hotel upon arrival. We recommend taking a trip to Chora, the capital of Naxos, which has an enormous Venetian castle as its landmark. Chora is a historic castle town with stone paved streets (known as kalderimia in Greek) where you can observe a unique combination of Cycladic and Medieval architecture.

Naxos to Mykonos

Early ferry to Mykonos island for your departure.

You arranged a tour for my group of five on may 10 and 11. I would like you to know that we were very impressed with how smoothly the arrangements went, from the time we were picked up at the hotel until we were dropped off there the next day. Our guide, Nesrin , was wonderful! She provided so much information and was able to answer our questions, and she modified the trip at the end to include a tour of a winery which we had not expected. Two of our group had taken such tours before in other countries and remarked at how coordinated and exceptional your tour was. We were of course disappointed that we could not take the balloon ride but completely understand that safety must come first. I guess that gives me an excuse to visit again in the future.

I will gladly recommend your company to anyone I know who is travelling to Turkey. And I would like to add that I found the Turkish people in general to be very welcoming, kind, and helpful. I enjoyed your country and thank you again for arranging this tour. It will remain a fond memory for me.

Again Thank you so much

I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Istanbul, Onur Usta picked us up and we found him very sweet, friendly and accommodating.He took us to have good meals on both days and we toured the city.Unfortunately, we were unable to get into the Topkapi or Hagia Sofia because of the crowds lined up there for tickets, which would have meant a 2 – 3 hour wait.We also had a good time in Kusadasi, were driven to Ephesus and enjoyed it greatly. Thanks for arranging this, I’ll certainly let all my friends know about your company. Kindest regards,

I am writing to let you know of the wonderful service I received from Elite Turkey Tours. I was trying to put a vacation together and she was accommodating, friendly, professional and a delight!! My son’s birthday was Aug 17 and I was waiting to get vacation approval so I could book a trip and put the info in his birthday card! Early afternoon on the 15th I got approval and called Hulya so she could check 2 trips for my final choice. She was prompt, called me and I booked the 8 days in Paris, Italy, Christmas. Between phone tags and my demanding work schedule, we spoke at 4:30 PST and she faxed me the confirmation and trip schedule so I could put it in my Son’s card. He was thrilled and excited and it made our day!! Thank you and I will continue to work with your company in all my travels!

Larissa & Justin

Justin and I wanted to thank you for sending the checks for the refund in Antalya!! We greatly appreciate your help on everything and have had a great experience working with you!

We wish you all the best!

I just returned from a business trip and quite exhausted after all this travelling….you can quote me below:

I had a wonderful time touring Bursa, Cumalikizik and Iznik.

Bursa is, in my opinion, NorthWest Turkeys hidden gem. If you want wonderful historic sites, gastronomy Iskender kebap), and shopping all to yourself in a verdant setting go to Bursa.

Cumalikizik is a wonderful original Ottoman village nearby…best enjoyed off-season. I would imagine staying overnight in snowy winter would be magical.

Iznik, while much smaller and boasting fewer sites, is of spiritual importance to many and, for those, not to be missed….
