sell11 Day Deluxe Greece 2024

11 Days / 9 Nights   Starting at $4450 PP (Land Rate)

Before Rome, there was Greece—the Island Empire with 6000 islands in all. If it’s your first time, expect a life-altering experience. View beautiful Athens from high atop the Acropolis. Visit the islands, each with different shapes, sizes and personalities. Lay a towel out on the most beautiful beaches in the world. Taste the seafood, meats, cheeses, vegetables and wines—as fresh as God intended.

Welcome to Greece, the Perillo way—authentic, friendly, and, of course, with excellent accommodations.

Itinerary

DAY 1 - Thurs - USA to Athens

Your overnight flight to Greece may bring on dreams of Zeus and Apollo, but fear not, the gods are on your side tonight. After all – we’re visiting their homeland!

DAY 2 - Fri - Arrive Athens - Welcome Cocktail Party and Dinner Tonight

Upon arrival to Athens’ newly constructed airport, your Perillo Tours representative will greet you and privately transfer you to your deluxe 5-star hotel in the heart of Athens. You will be assisted with your check-in for a smooth and effortless experience.

Time to relax and adjust to your new time. We’ve arranged a welcome cocktail followed by a scrumptious roof top dinner with breathtaking views as you watch the sunset.

DAY 3 - Sat - Athens City Tour

Begin your journey back to ancient Greece, “the cradle of civilization”. Your sightseeing tour brings us to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Royal Palace, the Pan-Athenian Stadium and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Stop at the first Olympic Games of the modern era held in 1896 followed by the world-famous Acropolis.

Visit the architectural masterpieces of the Golden Age of Athens: the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheio and finally—the glorious Parthenon and the Acropolis Museum, with its many priceless artifacts.

After, a fun walking tour in the Plaka and central market. We stop for lunch at a typical local taverna. The rest of the day is at leisure to shop or just stroll.

DAY 4 - Sun - Cape Sounion

Morning is at leisure. In the afternoon we depart for Cape Sounion. Marvel over one of Greece’s most photographed monuments on this half-day tour to the Temple of Poseidon from Athens.

Wind your way along the coastal cliffs and beaches on the scenic drive to Cape Sounion, then grab your camera as you spot the magnificent remains of the Temple of Poseidon, perched high on the sea cliffs.

You have a chance to get up close to the ancient monument, explore ruins dating back to 444 BC, and soak up the impressive coastal views. Dinner follows at a local fish restaurant before returning to your hotel.

DAY 5 - Mon - Athens - Mykonos

After breakfast we depart for Piraeus Port to board the highspeed ferry to Mykonos Island.

On this jet-set island, beautiful beaches, chic boutiques, and elegant nightclubs - all vie for the tourist’s attention. Beneath its sophisticated surface, however, lies a quintessential Greek island. Hundreds of tiny chapels dot the island and sheep graze in the shadow of whitewashed windmills.

Visit Little Venice in Mykonos, find a table on the waterfront and bask in the serenity of sunset over the picturesque harbor. Be sure to send your regards to Pete the Pelican.

DAY 6 - Tues - Mykonos - Delos

Located only 3 ½ nautical miles from Mykonos by ship, in ancient times Delos was the spiritual center of the Cycladic Islands and as the mythical birthplace of Apollo, it was considered a sacred island.

Today Delos is essentially a large archeological site, with its ruins taking up almost 1-square mile and with no inhabitants except members of the French School of Archeology who have been excavating the island for over 100-years. Overnight stays on the island are forbidden.

Return for a leisure afternoon. Evening a dinner awaits you in the town.

DAY 7 - Wed - Mykonos

After breakfast the day is at leisure to explore, swim or shop till you drop. If so inclined, we offer an optional cooking class to learn a traditional Mykonian dish from the freshest of ingredients.

DAY 8 - Thurs - Mykonos - Santorini

Today we depart Mykonos for Santorini by superfast ferry. Upon arrival to Santorini, you will be transferred to your hotel in Fira. Late afternoon, you will be picked up for a Fira walking tour followed by dinner.

DAY 9 - Fri - Santorini - Island Tour

Today we begin with a visit to Pyrgos, the best-preserved medieval village on the island. It is situated at the foot of Mt. Profitis Ilias, (Mt. Prophet Elijah), Santorini’s highest peak at 1900 feet.

Next we visit Koutsogiannopoulos Winery for a great lunch and of course, a wine tasting!

Finally today, you’ll enjoy the prehistoric village of Akrotiri to visit the well-preserved excavations from 1600 B.C. After, we’ll return to our hotel to relax, or explore a bit more!

DAY 10 - Sat - Santorini - Catamaran Sunset Cruise

The morning is at leisure. This afternoon, it’s a sunset Catamaran Cruise by the magical Caldera (a volcanic cauldron). We’ll sail the sea route from Red Beach, to White Beach, to the Black Mountain and the Hot Springs. What a spectacular sunset. It’s great to be alive!

As the night falls, a sumptuous dinner is served complete with wine and dessert. Marvel at the shimmering stars in the sky and twinkling lights on the island by night!

format_quote Testimonials

What can I say about our Vesuvius Tour other than it was amazing. Our tour guide Daniela Senise was exceptional. I had a medical problem on the trip - got on the plane in New York walking - got off the plane in Rome unable to walk. Through Daniela's caring, she arranged for a doctor to see me at the hotel, welcomed me on the parts of the tour I could do and was very honest in telling me which parts of the tour would have been impossible for me to do on the walker and eventually in a wheelchair for the last five days of the trip. She was always helpful, never made me feel like I was an imposition/bother. It is because of her that we can still say we had a marvelous time. She is smart. She is friendly. She is knowledgeable. Everything moved smoothly. Daniela is a pure treasure and Perillo Tours should hold on to her.

Mr. & Mrs. R.R.

The Southern Italy and Sicily tour was fabulous! The places we visited were varied and filled with culture, history, and wonderful sights. It was highly diverse. Our travel guide Raffaelle, was so fabulous. He made our trip. Perillo tours are highly organized, excellently guided and competitively priced. Definitely will use Perillo again. I first heard of Perillo as a child living in the Bronx, NY. All the people from the Arthur Avenue secition used them, and as you can see we still are!
