The journey begins in the charming city of Athens, in Greece. Considered the cradle of western civilization, the city is a perfect blend of the old and the modern, housing a lot of monuments and historic buildings, spread across an organized and well-developed European metropolis. Among the main tourist attractions are the Parthenon and the citadel of the Acropolis, located in the highest part of the city.

The most common way to transfer to the islands of Mykonos and Santorini is by air or sea from Athens. If you have a few days in your itinerary, I suggest you visit one or two islands and go by plane or speedboat (more expensive). The ferry companies in Greece are the Helenic Seaways, blue star and sea jets.

The first stop is Mykonos, an island full of beaches with white sand and waters with an impressive shade of blue. Known worldwide for its white and blue houses, the city is considered the heart of the Cyclades Islands.

Then the stop is majestic Santorini, the most famous of the Greek islands. At the destination you can choose between staying in Óia or Fira. Walking through the alleys and alleys decorated with colorful flowers, enjoying the exotic beaches of Red Beach and White Beach, and watching the sunset, diving in the Aegean Sea, are the most suitable programs for those visiting the destination.

Turkey: discovering two continents in the same country

Arrival in Turkey is made by air, departing Mykonos, towards Istanbul. The trip continues towards Denizli, a district in the southwest of the country, which is close to one of the main tourist attractions in the country: the natural pools of Pamukkale. The attraction is situated on a huge white limestone mountain and has a curious shape that resembles steps. The waters have an average temperature of 35ºC and contain healing properties.

For many Cappadocia is the highlight of a trip to Turkey. The region that has been inhabited for thousands of years by various civilizations, has natural and historical beauties. The region is made up of several cities and towns, the most famous being the city of Göreme.

Formed by colorful valleys, folds and interesting rock formations, known as Fairy Chimneys, Cappadocia is well known for the classic balloon ride over the region.

The last city on the route was founded over 2600 years ago and was once called Byzantium and Constantinople. Istanbul is an ancient and contemporary city, full of walls, palaces and mosques, which share space with modern buildings and monumental bridges.

To enjoy the destination well, knowing the main tourist attractions, tasting the most varied dishes of Turkish cuisine and being able to buy some souvenirs, it is necessary to spend at least 3 nights in the city.
