Day 4 Santorini
All day at leisure to explore this beautiful island. The environment of this island is totally different from any of the other Cycladic islands. Often referred to as the “Prehistoric Pompeii of the Aegean” due to the geological changes which transformed this island.
A volcanic explosion which took place 3500 years ago is believed to have been responsible for the annihilation of the Minoan civilization in Crete, which lies 70 miles southwards.
It is also believed that Santorini or Thira as the locals call it, is part of the legendary lost continent of Atlantis which disappeared when the volcano erupted. Whatever might be believed, Santorini is a minefield of archaeological interest featuring ancient Thira and Akrotiri with remains of its Minoan town. The island is renowned for its unique views and colorful sunsets. Overnight.

Paros has in recent years developed into a modern tourist centre and is one of the few Cycladicislands filled with gently undulating hills which contain the famous Parian marble – the marble with which the Acropolis was built.
The picturesque approach to the island is via the town of Parikia, the main port and capital of the island, built on the site of the ancient city.
A ruined Venetian castle situated in the present market place, adds to the colour of Parikia, with its narrow cobble paved streets,white-washed houses decorated with pots of colorful geraniums and fragrant basil.
One of the most impressive and respected shrines of Byzantine architecture can be found in the form of the Holy Church of Ekatondapiliani, or roughly translated means the church of 100 doors.

Although barren and full of windmills, Mykonos is one of the most cosmopolitan of the Greek islands, attracting world renowned socialites, intellectuals and artists.
From its harbor, full of small fishing boats bobbing side-by-side with luxurious yachts, one can walk through narrow white-washed alleys, see dazzling white cubed-shaped houses with brightly painted wooden doors and windows, plus a myriad of tiny bluedomed churches.
Famous for its zany nightlife, Mykonos has also much to offer those searching for the cultural history of the island. The church of PARAPORTIANI is considered to be an architectural masterpiece.
