10 Days Greece Itinerary in Cyclades & Athens
Greece Itinerary 10 DAYS
Go Exploring the Great Greece
Day 1 Santorini – Firá & Oía with Sunset
We decided to stay in Imerovigli which has a great sunset view. Perfect place in the middle of Firá and Oía. Midday on our first day we decided to be crazy and do the Firá to Oiá walk in 32 degrees and Sunshine. Which was a spectacular view for our souls not for our bodies. The priest halfway saved us with some shadow and private tour around the church. He was talking about drinking wine with no control and life as it should be.
The hike is incredible and offers a true taste of Aegean experience with the volcano landscape and the villages of Firestefani and Imerovigli. The hike includes a spectacular view with cliff-top walking, azure Aegean sea as far as your eyes can see. The Reward is sunset at Oía, which is famous for some of Greece best sunsets. Walk around and take Extensive pictures of Oía.
Our Hotel: Ampelonas Apartments
Day 2 Santorini – Exploring with ATW
When only having 48 hours in Santorini, there is no time to lose. This is why the best choice is to rent an ATW and go exploring and check of your bucket list: Red Beach, Kamari Beach, Mesa Gonia, Exa Gonia, Santo Vinery and Sunset view. My highlight of the ATW tour was Santo Winery, not just because of the wine, but because of the majestic view of the Aegean Sea and Santorini itself.
Day 3 Santorini to Antiparos – Boat Trip
Before hitting the taxi down to the new port. Take a walk around Imerovigli and get crazy with the camera. There is nothing to miss because everything you see is pure beauty for the eye. Enjoy your 2 euro Gyros for lunch and be ready for the 4 hours boat trip to Paros. When entering Paros port look for the small boat that goes to Antiparos. And enjoy 15 minutes boat ride to the island of tranquility.
Our Hotel: Asteras
Day 4 Antiparos the Island of Tranquility
Antiparos we love you by all our heart. This is the island to forget everything and do nothing.
The days melt from one to the next, filled with big blue skies and endless miles of aquamarine coastline blessed with some of Europe’s cleanest beaches. Many travelers simply settle down and never go home – by Karina Miller
Day 5 Beach & more Beach
To be honest we where terrible explorers when being in Antiparos. We pretty much did nothing more than beaching. We went to the closest beach that we could see from our room. When we entered the beach we where in Peace. Perfect clear water, clean bech and nothing more to ask for. Spent our day watching people kiting from Paros to Antisparos; maybe on of the world’s top kite surfing places. Let’s not forget the big yachts coming in for a swim.
We really forgot the days in Antiparos. Our only big problem was where to eat our dinner. Then food heaven listen to our prayers or more our Greek host telling us that the best place to go is Klimataria Tavern. Speaking of local flavors in our belly, our favorite dish was fried feta cheese with sesame seeds and honey. Oh lord, can I eat it for ever? A delicious combo that we kept on eating during our stay on the island.
Day 6 From Paros to Antiparos
We deiced to go with the local ferry and from their take the bus in to the city of Paros. Entering Paros: let me say this pre-book your hotel in high season. You save yourself from stress and walking in the streets finding a place to stay. In the end we ended up with good deal.
Day 7 Paros Beach & Sunset Cocktails
We pretty much continued our tranquility from Antiparos, going to the beach and enjoying the saltwater, vitamin D and relaxation. Sadly there was no exploring around the Island. The only thing we did know: Was the we wanted to go back to Antiparos. Because of that it was time for a boat trip with Captain Ben.
Paros was okay, but for us we knew our paradise was Antiparos. When in Paros it is charming to walk around in the old town and get lost as you always due with the small streets that has never ending and continue around the corner. We also enjoyed the sunset in Paros, but were still longing back for Antiparos.
Day 8 Captain Ben Around Antiparos
In our guiltiness for nothing do much we arranged our-self on a boat trip with Captain Ben! Which also would put us back to Antiparos and our favorite eatery Klimatateria. What a great day! Crystal Clear Blue Water and a great vibe of life. Swimming, dancing, drinking and enjoying it to the fullest. On our way back to Paros with the ferry we hit our best sunset in Greece.
Day 9 Paros to Athens
Leaving Paros in the morning, arriving Athens by midday. We went with the subway from the Port to our hotel The Stanley. Which was a convenient place in the middle of the city center. We did not rest much when we entered Athens. With only 8 sizzling hours in Athens, it was straight away exploring and even putting in the mesmerizing Acropolis with sunset view.
Day 10 and Our last day in Greece
Greece we loved you before and we still love you and will probably love you for ever. Greece is perfect for holiday in Europe.
