With your children, travel to the land of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson novels and Edith Hamilton’s classic mythology tome. Explore Athens and enjoy skimming the Aegean by ferry to the Greek Isles of Santorini and Crete. In these captivating places, mortals of all ages will discover the enduring appeal of Greece, its history, and culture.

Highlights Include

  • Athens: Ascend the steps of the legendary Acropolis and explore the Parthenon—temple of Athena, goddess of war and wisdom—plus visit the Acropolis Museum. Venture out to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, god of the sea.
  • Santorini: Spend two days on the island of Santorini with its idyllic villages perched high on the cliffs overlooking azure blue water, which has inspired artists, poets, and visitors alike. Here, you’ll enjoy a scavenger hunt around the island, take a catamaran ride to see up close the caldera left after a volcanic explosion, and swim in hot springs created by the volcano. You’ll also enjoy the fun of Greek culture with a traditional Greek dance lesson.
  • Crete: Settle into island life during three nights on Crete. You’ll walk through the archaeological site of the famous Palace of Knossos, associated with the myth of the Labyrinth and the Minotaur. Plus, visit the Lasinthos Eco Park and try your hands during a pottery lesson. Experience everyday Cretan life with a cooking experience led by a Greek Yia Yia (grandmother) and a look inside a village house, and stop at a museum dedicated to the rural history and local handicrafts. Throughout your journey, enjoy family-friendly hotels with pools and some adjoining rooms, then return to Athens by air.
