itinerary cyclades

In 15 days you will discover three tranquil islands in the Cyclades, the busier (but not less interesting), Santorini and Athens. You begin your trip in the capital city full of history. Be sure to bring a visit to the lively district of Plaka and the famous Acropolis. Then you travel to the hiking island of Sifnos. The next destination is the versatile island of Milos, here you will find beautiful sandy beaches. The sea caves of Kleftiko are not be missed. Then you travel to the traditional Folegandros, where you will find a piece of the real Greece. It is a very quiet island and its small capital is cozy with whitewashed streets that connects three small squares. You'll end your trip on the picturesque island of Santorini. Most pictures of Greece are made on this island and there is no doubt that you will make many pictures yourself as well. From Santorini you fly back home, this way you save a nine hour boat trip back to Athens.
