Palm-lined avenues house glamorous shops and gourmet restaurants, and historic cobblestone streets present traditional tavernas and ouzerias to satisfy everyone’s taste buds. Beautiful churches appear at every corner, seasonal markets sell colorful local produce and shaded spots on Aristotelous Square are where you can sit back with a homemade ice cream and watch the world go by. VOLOS We arrive in the attractive coastal port city of Volos in the morning. The area’s background will captivate you and features in some of the most remarkable tales of Greek mythology. Volos was the mythical home of Jason and the Argonauts. The famous Argonaut expedition set sail from the region, which was also the birthplace of the Centaurs - parthuman, part-equine creatures. There is also the opportunity to visit the monasteries of Meteora, perched on the top of vertical rock formations and a wonder to behold. SANTORINI The beautiful face of Santorini is instantly recognisable across the world. We are sure she will take your breath away, with her soaring landscapes, clusters of whitewashed houses in the capital, Fira, and, of course the iconic bluedomed church at Oia.
