Fill yourself on Greek food and soak in the awe of the Acropolis, or trek up a volcanic mountain

Women On Wanderlust Club is organising a seven nights, eight days tour of Greece from Delhi, from April 4 to 12.

The tour takes you first to Athens with a visit to the Acropolis, Olympic Stadium, the Archaeological Museum, Hadrian’s Arch, the National Garden, The Presidential Palace, The Tomb of Unknown Soldier, and the Parliament with the changing of the guard. Typical Greek meals at taverns and restaurants are also on the travel menu, with bouzouki music and Greek folk dances.

A ferry to Santorini, the volcano island with its town perched high above the ocean is next on the tour. This is one of the most spectacular islands in the world. There will be a full day tour to Caldera and Oia. The sea filled the great crater when a volcano blew out the centre of the island thousands of years ago and the last major earthquake in Santorini was in the year1956. There are more than 350 churches on Santorini. At Caldera, there’s a volcano climb. Oia offers a stroll through a typical Greek village.

Mykonos, a rocky, scrub-strewn piece of land, bang in the midst of the Aegean Sea is next on the travel map. Though also a part of the Cyclades group of islands, like Santorini, it has quite a buzz and is referred to as the ‘party capital’ of Greece. The trip comes with a guided tour of Delos.

The island is an open-air archaeological museum with ruins dating back 5,000 years and said to be the birth place of Apollo. One gets to wander amidst ruins of temples, shrines, the agora, the theatre, the gymnasium and houses.

The package costs Rs. 1,12,000 per person on twin share with a single occupancy surcharge of Rs. 20,160.
