It will then be time to head to the first island of the week, which is Epidavros.

DAY 2

Serving its visitors with a slice of authentic Greek life, Epidavros is a true highlight of the Saronic Islands and home to an array of ancient architecture nestled within a stunning mountainous landscape and fragrant orange groves. A short ride from town the world’s largest and most intact ancient Greek amphitheatre can be explored, famous for its near-perfect acoustics.

Grab your snorkelling gear and discover ancient ruins beneath the waves, truly unique!

DAY 3

Your next stop is the gem of the Aegean, Hydra. With a ban on wheeled vehicles, romantic Hydra uses donkeys as its main means of transport. Here you can spend the afternoon swimming and paddleboarding around the stunning bay before wandering the Greek island’s narrow cobbled backstreets – and watch the best sunset in Greece! Hydra is a bohemian paradise and the perfect place to enjoy a casual walk and properly unwind.

DAY 4

Today you will discover romantic Spetses! Spetses stands out amongst other Greek islands, which are normally known for the characteristic orange and brown rugged terrain. Spetses is green and covered with thick trees and foliage, allowing the island to really stand out. Cars are not allowed here but you can easily rent scooters and explore it further. The island also has an iconic cathedral and paradise beaches for sun worshippers.

Today you will get to discover the tiny but fabulous island of Poros. Swim in crystal water under blue skies and get adventurous. If you haven't tried any watersports on the trip, this is the place to do it. Whether you want to go tubing, banana boating or parasailing, you will find it all on Poros. The island is also known for its wild lemon trees and if you love ruins, you will find Poseidon Temple's ones.

It is then already time to head back to Athens and discover the city further.
