Mon, 29.05.2017

Antalya/Turkey, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

One of the most beautiful places in Turkey. Ideal for shopping – for instance in the narrow alleyways of the old town – and the perfect starting point for excursions into antiquity: to Perge and Aspendos*, Side* and Termessos*. Spectacular canyons and gorges await you when you go rafting on the Koprucay River*, or take a jeep into the mountains* and marvel at the fascinating landscape.

Tue, 30.05.2017

Rhodes/Dodecanese/Greece, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

The narrow streets of the medieval old town are ideal for taking a stroll. Our tip: the Scarabee Lounge Cafe, which has a wonderful view of the Palace of the Grand Master. Alternatively, hone your culinary skills in a cookery course for connoisseurs* with fresh fish and seafood. Our travel concierge recommends an aerial tour* of the Aegean islands.

Wed, 31.05.2017

Thira/Santorini/Cyclades/Greece , 8.00 – 0.00 hrs

With white villages and a rugged coastline, Santorini is one of the highlights of Greece. Walk through winding alleys or visit Akrotiri* an archaeological excavation from the Bronze Age. A walk from Thira to Oia* or a catamaran ride around the caldera* are no less appealing, before the setting sun bathes the island in magical light.

OUR TIP:
Yamas!
Santorini and wine – a perfect combination. Visit one of the numerous wineries and taste the extraordinary quality of the grapes which flourish in the volcanic soil.

Thu, 01.06.2017

Naxos/Cyclades/Greece, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

An insider’s tip: “Once you let the Cycladic island of Naxos into your heart, you will return there again and again” (DIE ZEIT). The capital is dominated by a Venetian castle and its beaches are perfect for sunbathing and swimming. Discover the distinct charm of the island on an island tour through traditional villages* or a hike across the Tragea plateau*.

Fri, 02.06.2017

Nauplia/Peloponnese/Greece , 8.00 – 18.00 hrs
