Bask on the islands of the Aegean
Athens has long been considered the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of modern-day democracy. It’s also where your trip begins—a smaller yet equally worthy title! Watch history unfold during a private tour of the Acropolis museum and peruse stalls brimming with local fare at the Agora-Athens Central Market. In Crete, wander from bay to bay, soaking up the splendour of the Mediterranean Sea, and pedal past old-growth olive plantations. Next up, you’ll be whisked away in style aboard a private yacht to the Santorini Islands. Walk along the island’s rugged outcroppings as the sea crashes on the rocks below, before putting the day to bed watching the sun retreat on the horizon.
