Athens is an invigorating mix of ancient history and modern edginess. Iconic monuments now share spare with first class museums, lively cafes, and fine dining, creating one of the most beautiful and fun city settings in Europe. Peruse its new, cool neighborhoods, where stylish restaurants, hip hotels, and arts districts arise in the least likely areas. No visit to Athens can be considered complete or successful without visits to historic sites such as the Acropolis, Parthenon, Temple of Hephaestus, or many of the other ancient sites. If you want to please your aesthetic side, you must visit Santorini. A place so widely fantasized about and photographed, you can turn that piece of your imagination into reality. With multicolored cliffs soaring over 300m above the Aegean, Santorini will take your breath away with its snowy white houses lining the cliff tops. The sun setting against this backdrop creates a truly artistic image, and the multicolored beaches are simply icing on the cake. From $899 based on double occupancy.
