The Best Luxury Holiday in Greece

A Greek Luxury Holiday at its Finest!

In celebration of our 45th wedding anniversary, our kids surprised us with a luxury holiday in Greece! My husband and I are so excited—we’d never been ANYWHERE aside from Disneyland when the kids were growing up. This will be such a treat for Harold and me!While on our luxury, Holiday in Greece, we’ll enjoy a two-day tour of Athens, and then it’s on to Nafplion, Olympia, Delphi; and then the magical islands of Mykonos and Santorini.  I asked my daughter how in the world, she and her siblings were able to afford to send us on a fabulous14-day holiday in Greece. She then told me about this online travel agency that specializes in Greek Tourism. They know everything about Greece and the Greek Islands worth knowing, and are also quite friendly and helpful. This online agency works within their clients’ budgets, interests and timeframe in order to design a Greece holiday tour that’s right for them.Not only that, but all the arrangements are handled by this agency. The airline tickets and transfers, limousine service with and English-speaking driver, luxury hotel reservations, tickets and entrance fees to every site and museum, hydrofoil from Mykonos to Santorini; and even breakfast every day! Have you ever?

I am so looking forward to the lovely beaches and shopping that Greece has to offer—especially in Mykonos and Santorini. Harold’s favorite part of our luxury holiday in Greece will likely be exploring the ruins at Delphi and the guided tour of Ancient Olympia. Oh, and the opportunity to explore Mycenae and Epidarus where Agamemnon and my favorite classic Greek figures once roamed. Each destination on our itinerary will surely be filled with wonder!

I can’t thank my children enough for their kindness and generosity; I must have done something right in raising them! Also, a big thanks to the travel professionals who made all the arrangements for our luxury holiday in Greece!

Holidays in Greece

Imagine spending the Greek Orthodox Easter holiday in Greece! The climate is lovely during that time of year—neither too hot nor too cold–as Easter always falls in the spring. Mother Nature is at her finest; therefore, it’s the ideal time to experience the realGreece during its most significant holiday.I wonder which city would be best to celebrate the Easter holidays in Greece. Then I remembered the online travel gurus I consulted the last time I went to Greece! These trustworthy folks know everything there is to know about Greece and the Greek Islands.  Who better to ask than the experts?

After much conversation and consideration, the destination of my Greek Orthodox Easter Holidays in Greece had been decided. I would spend nine glorious days of touring Athens, Crete and Rhodes. As usual, the Aces of Aegean Travel handled all the arrangements: airline tickets, limousine service, rental cars, and hotel reservations. Everything came together like clockwork, but by now I’ve come to expect nothing less from my Grecian travel gurus.

And now, off to my wondrous Holiday in Greece!

Athens, as always, was a delight. This time though, I went on a guided tour which showed me the very best Athens has to offer: The Syntagma Square, Omonia Square, The Temples of Zeus and Athena Nike. Fabulous! The next leg of my Easter Holidays in Greece found me on the island of Crete. The Orthodox Easter observance was at times festive and sometimes solemn; Good Friday is an example. There is something quite remarkable about this day. In Heraklion on Good Friday evening, The Procession of the Epitaphs in the city’s center is indeed moving. The fragrant aroma of rosewater permeates the streets, the melancholy rhythmic beat of the drums from Heraklion’s band, and the citizens dressed in traditional the men and women dressed in traditional attire each conspired to create an unforgettable Easter holiday in Greece. It was also a truly different way of experiencing Easter itself, and Crete.

A Greece Holiday in the North Aegean

After 20 miserable years of marriage, my husband and I have, at long last, called it quits. Well actually, he called it quits, but if he hadn’t –I would have. My attorney beat up his attorney in court, so to celebrate; I’ve decided to take myself on a well-deserved and luxurious holiday in Greece. My ex was too cheap to take me anywhere, so now I plan to make up for his lack of imagination and motivation by treating myself!If I don’t, who will?

I went online and looked up the Greece holiday travel experts whom everyone is raving about. I wasn’t quite sure what part of Greece I wanted to explore, and the online travel geniuses were more than happy to help me decide. They assisted in planning my itinerary based on my interests, time frame and budget.  Before too long, we decided that the perfect Greece Holiday for me was a vacation in the Northern Aegean islands of Greece! Twelve days of sightseeing and touring Athens, Samos, Chios, and Lesvos (also known as Lesbos and Mytilene), will be perfectly sublime, and just what I need.

The online travel agents made all the arrangements, so I didn’t have to lift a finger. My airline tickets, transfers, limousine service, car rental, hotel reservations, ferries and tickets to everything I’d ever want to see on my Greece holiday were taken care of by the friendly and professional travel guys. My only responsibility was arriving at the airport on time! No wonder everyone I know uses these online experts.

Well, let me tell you: I had the most marvelous time on my Greece holiday. The second night I witnessed the most spectacular sunset over the Aegean Sea while touring the Temple of Poseidon in Athens. On the island of Chios, I found the Byzantine Museum and the Philip Argenti Gallery to be simply fabulous.

The most unusual experience of my Greece Holiday occurred at the monastery in the midpoint of Chios. As a reminder of a late 1800’s massacre, and among a charming area of buildings, were the skulls of martyred monks—displayed for all to see.

The island of Lesvos was and absolute paradise; the way one might picture the Garden of Eden.

To the fantastic travel gods of Greece Holidays, I say, “Sas ef̱charistó̱ pára polý !”
