Found 7th Feb 2016
This deal is based on 2 adults flying out to Athens from London Stansted on 15th August returning on 25th August. You will be staying for 2 nights in Athens, 3 nights in Paros, 2 nights in Naxos and 3 nights in Santorini.

Trip breakdown

15th August - You will leave Stansted early morning on August 15th landing around 12pm giving you the whole day to explore Athens! I've chosen the Cosmos hotel because it's location is good for the short time in Athens and easy access to the port.

16th August - Check out early and head for the port, the ferry to Paros leaves at 0645 and it's a beautiful sail which takes about 4 hours. Once arrived in Paros head to the hotel Villa Melina which has a lovely pool and close to the beach

17th - 18th August - Enjoy Paros

19th August - Check out and head to the port, the ferry to Naxos leaves about 1145 and takes just under an hour. I've chosen the Rea hotel which is in Naxos town, this island is full of history and beautiful beaches.

20th August - Enjoy Naxos

21st August - Check out and head to the port, the ferry to Santorini leaves at 1250. Once you arrive in Santorini hop on the bus into Fira and then to Perissa where the hotel is located. I've chosen the hotel Villa Spyros which has great reviews and is located close to the beautiful black beach.

22nd - 23rd August - Enjoy Santorini

24th August - Head to the airport to head back to Athens, the flight only takes around an hour, spend the rest of the day exploring Athens, I've chosen the same hotel that you will be staying in at the beginning of the trip for convenience!

25th August - Head to the airport for the early flight back to London.

If you wanted to spend longer in Santorini there is a flight to Athens which arrives at around 1am, you also wouldn't need a hotel in Athens as you'd only have 5 hours between your flights so you could stay in the airport, the choice is yours!

I've done similar to this trip twice now and I love it, can't beat island hopping around Greece!

Price breakdown

Flights to Athens booked with Ryanair - £211.96

Athens hotel booked with Hotels.com - £44.62

Paros hotel booked with Expedia - £94.53

Naxos hotel booked with LateRooms - £53.86

It's next to one of the most volatile areas on the planet, with tens of thousands of refugees fleeing on a daily basis. Death occurs within the waters you bathe in, with families destitute and torn apart on islands nearby. Unlike you, and the Greece Tourist Board, I would not want my family anywhere near there.


If by 'next to' you mean 1000 miles away then yes, these islands are 'next to' Syria.

Also you seem to have concern for destitute families (concern that extends to avoiding them at all cost) but give no thought to the fact your attitude, if held en masse, would amount to a boycott of these islands as a tourist location further destroying Greece's economy, making Greek families and businesses destitute and (thus) also reducing the already crippled ability of Greece to cater/shelter effectively to the tens of thousands of refugees/migrants arriving at it's shores.

A week in boot camp would be more relaxing, what's with the hectic schedule!?
fantastic
Always fancied Island hoping in Greece, maybe when my 5 year old is a bit older
looks like a great way to explore Greece, is there any meals including with the hotel stays or is it just Bnb?

Yer it's defo a must do, not very practical with kiddies but it doesn't hurt doing one or two islands
My girlfriend wants to go to Lesbos (I think that's what she said) for some reason. Maybe it's to help refugees or something... not sure 'cos she's not talking to me atm

It's just room only or B&B you won't find many hotels in Greece that do meals except maybe a pool bar, Greece is fairly cheap to eat out though

Yer lesbos is one of the islands the migrants are going to, personally it's not an island I'd choose to go on holiday to at the mo!
You could include Ios in this trip as well

You have to have a sturdy liver though for the 24 hour drinking oO

Its a lovely island as well though!!!

Ios is probably my favourite along with Santorini, has to most amazing beaches too!

Migrants - No thanks



There won't be any migrants on any of the Cyclades they're too far away from mainland Europe!
Is it any cheaper by boat? oO
Are you all crazy?

Who wants to go on holiday to an area that no one knows how bad things will be in a few months?
I just can't wait to swim in same water with dead bodies of refugees.

You can say that about anywhere, these islands are nowhere near problem areas, perfectly nice places with lovely people and safer than most of the U.K!

Been doing the Greek Islands for the last 4 years with the little one, I'll stick with two weeks in one for now, have researched into doing two, but often it's financially best keeping it to one, and exploring the Island with a car.

Perissa was our least favourite but cheapest town on Santorini

Yer there's plenty of places to visit with the car, Greece has so many beautiful beaches and excellent resorts, probably best if you start off with a shorter ferry ride but to be honest the majority of the ferries are really comfortable so once the little ones a bit older give them the iPad and relax! Defo the cheapest Perissa, we've stayed there twice, heard Kamari is lovely too but we've always just headed upto Oia during the days we've not spent on the beach, such an unreal pretty place!

Can't go wrong with a bit of Greece gyros and a beer is the way forward!

Wow If you thought like that where would you ever go

seems like some people don't read the news and have a perception of location

these islands are miles away from where the migrants have traveled too

I suggest Bognor Regis for you this year!!

These ferries are going to be chaos - good luck - -wouldn't do it if you paid me....they had to move all the ferries last year to cope with all the extra passengers...ones that were left were packed - read all the reviews about it..when it is all sorted then it would be lovely.....

A holiday should be a break from worry and stress. There are endless locations elsewhere equally in need of tourism to support their economies. My own personal preference is away from countries in political and financial strife and neighbouring troubles.

There is so much uncertainty within that region, I'm not prepared to risk my own peace of mind about the certainties of a trouble free rest from life issues.

If you want to turn this thread into a call for charitable help for Greece then fair enough, I'll support you.

You base your views on the fact that "they had to move all the ferries last year to cope with all the extra passengers."
no links to your preposition at all, which is fundamentally very poor evidence.

Its unbelievable that some people have a simplistic forthright attitude with no knowledge based on a preposition about the future!

Can you tell me with your knowledge of the future when the Calais Ferries and channel Tunnel are not going to be usable as well it might help me run my life more efficiently.

Do you know where these islands are?

I agree completely separately with supporting financially some of the Islands of Greece who have had to receive migrants.

The Holiday posted is such a big distance away and will be a fun trip completely free from any problems.
