Right now there are no two hotter European destinations than Mykonos and Santorini, and on our Island Escape you'll soon understand why. Endless blue and white buildings, ancient sights, azure waters, buzzing party nights and lazy sun-soaked days - if this isn't your picture of paradise, we don't know what is. Start it off with historical vibes and city life in Athens, before we hit these idyllic islands for what might just be the best week of your life. Water, sand, sunshine, delicious eats... the word bliss just doesn't do it justice.
Calling all Greek gods & goddesses - Welcome to the heart of ancient Greece! Meet your fellow travellers and head straight to colourful neighbourhood of Gazi. Get to know your new squad over dinner and explore the coolest nightspots and trendy culture of this old gasworks precinct. Overnight: Dorian Inn
After breakfast we have a free morning to enjoy Athens as you like, as well as an included walking tour of the top sights. Our time in Athens was amazing and well worth delaying our island time for. But delay it further? We shall not...Let's do this! 3 nights on the island of Mykonos, how did we get so lucky? Even the boat ride across the Aegean will have you awe struck and in love. Overnight: Paradise Mykonos
White-washed houses; cafes overflowing with olives, feta and tzatziki; storybook streets - and that's before you've even taken a dip in the ocean! After a visit to Paradise Beach, you're free to explore with the crew, take up an optional trip to Delos, or simply waste the day away as you please. Overnight: Paradise Mykonos
Here we are on yet another day when it feels completely fabulous to be alive. You're still in Mykonos baby! And the day is yours to soak up sunshine and play in the sea. Overnight: Paradise Mykonos
This morning, let's spare a thought for all those travellers who only have the time and money to visit just one Greek Island. Those poor unfortunate souls...Saddle up! We're taking to the seas again, this time in search of the island of Santorini. It's finally your turn to be the one lulling about the white-washed blue dome churches looking like a sultry summer babe. Home to the famous Oia sunset, this is the stuff dreams are made of. Ah, life.
Rise and shine, Greek Island travellers! The island of Santorini will not explore itself. Take a swim at Perissa Beach, eat the local specialty of fried tomato balls known as domatokeftedes, and roam the streets of Fira. Just remember to plan your day around the excursion to the iconic sunset of Oia - this is not an optional you're going to want to miss.The beautiful thing about having two full days on the one island is you have time to both relax and explore. Whatever you didn't do yesterday is still up for grabs today. If you feel like you've crammed it all in already, just head to the black or red sand beaches and spend another glorious day ocean-side. Ain't life grand? Overnight: Nikos Hotel
It's our last full day on trip - best hit up a big city we know and love and cause a little harmless havoc. Goodbye Santorini you sun soaked beauty, we're off to Athens.On arrival in Athens, tick off any last sightseeing you missed in this time capsule of a city tonight. Overnight: Dorian Inn
The moment we'd all been dreading - the goodbyes. As sad as they are, at least you have the memories. And another 300 Contiki trips to jump aboard! Make the most of your last free breakfast before you kick on to your next port of call.
