Matt's Greece Custom Itineraries

The trip for people who want to stay in Athens as little as possible but still see the sites. What makes this itinerary special is that you stay on the island of Poros, an hour from Athens and close enough to go into town for the day see everything and be back in time for a swim before dinner. You can also see the Saronic Islands, the Argolis Penisula (Myceneae, Nafplio, Epidavros) and then one bright morning take the fast boat to Pireaus to catch the ferry to Santorini and by sunset you are sitting on the rim of the volcano having a drink and enjoying the view. You can add other islands too if you like. In Poros you will be staying with my friends Takis and Zefi at the Saga Hotel.

Day 1. Arrive in Athens. Transfer with taxi to Pireaus to catch the boat to Poros to stay at the Saga Hotel with Takis and Zefi and their family, the nicest people you will ever meet.
Day 2. Relax and get to know the island. Maybe a little water-skiing or other watersports or just hang out at the beach or in the cafes in the village. Dinner at the Saga or at one of the many great tavernas on the island.
Day 3. Wake up early (not too early) and catch the Flying Dolphin to
Hydra. Spend the day swimming and strolling and take the last boat back.
Day 4. Wake up early and take the Flying Dolphin to Pireaus where you will be picked up by a driver for a tour of the city including the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, Museums and of course a nice lunch. Arrive back in Poros in time for a last swim.
Day 5. Day off or optional day for tour to Epidavros or Myceneae or Cruise.
Day 6. Wake up early and take the first Flying Dolphin to Pireaus and transfer to the boat to
Santorini. Stay at one of several selected hotels on the cliffs overlooking the caldera.
Day 7. Swim or see the archaeological sites of the island or whatever you would like to do including a variety of organized excursions
Day 8. Same as day 7
Day 9. Same as day 8 (there is lots to do in Santorini)
Day 10. Return to Athens on the morning boat. Arrive in Pireaus and be picked up by your driver and taken to the
Hotel Attalos or another hotel in the quiet Plaka area for your last night.
Day 11. Final transfer to the airport and home.
