What's included in this trip
Dubrovnik to Santorini SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Touch down in the Mediterranean seaport of Dubrovnik and spend a day meandering along winding marble streets while examining incredible architecture from the Renaissance and Gothic periods. Head to the Old Town for a walk past Placa Stradun, the Pile Gate and Sponza Palace or spend an evening dining alfresco on local seafood along Prijeko street.
In this coastal gem of Montenegro, walk to the top of the city walls to admire the scenery of Kotor or cruise around the bay. Dotted with historic sights, explore Grubonja Palace, the Northern Gate and St Tryphon Cathedral while ambling through this seaside town.
In the capital of Albania, stop by the impressive Et’hem Bey Mosque, a monument which signifies the rebirth of religious freedom in Albania after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. In the evening, take a stroll around the city to see local characters come to life or lose yourself in the rhythms of a vibrant nightclub.
Explore one of the oldest human settlements in the world. The religious monuments around town are the major drawcard for Ohrid, but the vibrant Old Bazaar is also well worth a look.
In Macedonia’s political and cultural centre, walk through Macedonia Square and sample gomleze and tasty baklava. Take a step back to Ottoman times with a visit to the Daut Pasha Hamam or journey through the humbling Holocaust Museum to learn how Macedonia suffered during this tragic chapter of history.
Relax by a gorgeous freshwater lake in the north-western corner of Greece. View the ruins of abandoned villages while trekking around the surrounding mountains of Lake Prespa.
Discover the wanders of Ioannia while ambling by the city’s bucolic villages and idyllic lake. In the evening, jump into Greek culture with a shot of ouzo before a lively night out.
In the birthplace of Greek goddess Aphrodite, there is nothing more to do than rest and relax on blue waters and white-sand beaches. Choose to follow the crowds to Porto Katsiki beach or try your hand at a challenging hike or mountain bike ride around the surrounding mountains.
A melting pot of wonders and sights, be you a foodie, history buff or art lover. See the original Olympic Stadium, wander the National Gardens and be dwarfed by the Temple of Zeus.
Offering a rare opportunity to see the islands as the Greeks do, Syros has typical whitewashed houses, terraced fields and fabulous sandy beaches.
Legendary in both ancient and modern times, Mykonos was the mythic battlefield where Zeus fought the Gigantes but today it's best known for its decadent nightlife.
Formed by a huge volcanic explosion, Santorini is instantly recognisable with its blue and white buildings, fascinating ruins and spectacular natural beauty.
