Mount Lycabettus, AthensThis month our partner, Evaneos, is offering a super trip, visiting Athens and two of the Cyclades islands, Paros and Naxos, with flights included. For two people, this tour will last a week and be created by Albert, Evaneos’ hand-picked local expert in Greece, ensuring the prize winner and their companion get real insights into the area.

Boasting UNESCO-listed historical sites, whitewashed houses, world-renowned gastronomy, and exquisite beaches, Greece is a favourite destination for all travellers looking for culture, adventure, and relaxation.

The Caryatid Porch of the Erechtheion, Acropolis, AthensAthens: The cradle of Western civilization

After landing in Athens, depending on your arrival time, you can begin to discover the highlights of some of Greece’s most magnificent ruins with your local guide, and witness the heritage that still courses through its streets. Learn about the fascinating history of the ‘Acropolis’ and ‘Pantheon’, and indulge in some shopping at the Monastiraki market while you sip on some tsipouro (pomace brandy or marc).

Paros: Island paradise in Paros

Naoussa, Paros

A short ferry ride from Athens will take you to the island of Paros, where you’ll have the chance to put your feet up at any one of these beautiful spots: Golden Beach, Kolymbithres or Santa Maria. After re-energising yourself, discover the charming traditional villages of Parka, Lefkes, and Naoussa with your guide, and ditch the afternoon crowds by taking a boat to the small island of Antiparos for a fix of crystal-clear water and Cycladic architecture.

Naxos: An underrated treasure

Apollo Temple, NaxosThe last stop of your trip before returning to Athens is the island of Naxos, one of Greece’s most wonderful hidden gems. This region offers sites and activities for everyone: food enthusiasts can indulge in some Mediterranean cuisine at Chora, the capital of Naxos, while explorers can go on an excursion to the traditional villages of Apiranthos and Halki with a local guide to gain an insight into Greek traditions. As for our adventure enthusiasts, Naxos has plenty of hiking trails to explore, as well as the opportunity to kitesurf in Mikri Vigla.

    Poros was my introduction to Greece over 40 years ago. Would love to revisit , but this time in a bit more relaxed fashion. And the rest of this trip sounds great too!

    Nothing is telling me I'm entered though I have just written 2 reviews. I would love to win this holiday, of course.
    I love Greece and it would be great to be able to re-visit old favourites and discover new ones in such a wonderful country..
    My friend and I have had very difficult and stressful times this year, so to win this would be fantastic.
    Hopefully we can be celebrating for once this year.

    I stayed overnight in Naxos once during a storm in the 80s. The window in our hotel room got shattered during it! I would dearly love to go back. A really interesting, historic place.

    Greece is on my wish list. I cannot get the blue and white houses out of my mind.

    It’s 30 years since we’ve been to Greece so our plan is to go back eventually, see how much it’s changed, or hasn’t. The beef Stifado was one of my favourite dishes which I’ve tried to recreate since but it doesn’t quite taste the same, I think we need to revisit the homeland of traditional dish cooked by the pros.

    Wow to have an Evaneos holiday created by Albert ,their local Greek expert, is such a fantastic prize. I've only visited Athens for a day and spent a couple of days in both Paros and Naxos so haven't even scratched the surface of the culture , history and beauty all 3 places have to offer.
    To me the Greek Islands are the perfect holiday location; historical sites, beautiful beaches, rugged coastlines, stunning sunsets, delicious food combined with the amazing Greek hospitality ! Fingers crossed I win.x

    I went to Athens many years ago and I absolutely loved it. I would really like to go back, this time with my husband, and show him how amazing it is. Have never been to Naxos or Paros but they're on my list. Greece is my favourite place in the world...
