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.

    I once had a guide around thessalonkiki, and it added a wonderful extra dimension to my Greek holiday. Greece is, of course, always a pleasure because Greeks are so hospitable. So this would be a great trip to help us cope with the possible travel horrors post brexit.

    You might think about an advice article about that, by the way.....

    Many years ago, when I was working for a marketing company, I organised and took a group of salesmen to Athens and I remember what a lovely city it was. However, most of my time was spent chasing up coaches and herding people into restaurants. I had very little time to myself and I would love to go back and see more of Athens (without having 20 tipsy sales reps trailing along behind me!) The trips to Paros and Naxos would be an added bonus and I have never been to these islands.

    It's 40 years since I've visited Greece, my wife has never been. I think we're due a visit soon.

    I would absolutely love this tour. I regularly holiday on the Greek Islands-they keep calling me back! It would be fantastic to have the benefit of a local guide with all their knowledge, just icing on the cake really.

    Greece, where do you begin? Culture & history surround you but what better way to soak it all up, together with food & drink, with the help of a local expert. There would be a lot of pre-travel reading beforehand!

    This tour sounds absolutely wonderful we love the Greek Islands but have never been to Athens, Paros or Naxos. We love the smaller islands that you can only reach by ferry.

    Stayed in Glifadha, moving on to Athens a couple of years ago and loved it. Didn't do the islands so chance to visit would be great.
