Mount Lycabettus, AthensThis prize draw is now closed.

This 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.

    Wow, lovely holiday, ticks all the boxes for me. Happy memories from 15 years ago of Paros, Naoussa, Anti-Paros; then something new in Athens and Naxos. Good luck to whoever wins this prize, you’ll have a brilliant time.

    Looks like a cracking prize - my wife very interested as she took a trip to Paros in the eighties and she was one of two tourists visiting the island and the other one was her travelling companion!

    The Athens/Paros/Naxos trip sounds so amazing! I’ve been hoping to go to Athens for a while and whilst I’ve visited a few islands I haven’t been to these two. I would be so excited to win this trip! Fingers crossed!

    Went to Paris nearly 40 years ago, would love the chance to return. Wonder if they still have a pelican at the harbour.

    This trip sounds fabulous -history, beautiful scenery, fabulous food - all put together by a local expert, and of course a chance to pretend I’m Meryl Streep staring in Mamma Mia. Ps. Any chance of you arranging for Pierce Brosnan to be there?

    Many many years ago, well I am a Silver Traveller, three friends and I went on a tailor made trip to Jordan. I did all the research, talked to the travel company involved for their advise and between us the trip was planned. In all, with our personal guide for the days, a limo and good to fabulous hotels, the cost worked out cheaper than most of the group tours. We were able to change plans and our guide took us to little known places not on our schedule. He also managed to get us upgraded in on hotel so that we ended up in the presidential suite. so yes, I love tailor made trips.
    I have sailed round the Peloponnese, through the Corinth Canel and into the Ionian Sea. I have visited Helkidiki but have never been to Athens or that region. This would be such an amazing trip. An amazing opportunity to fill in a few gaps in my Greek travels.
