Head to Greece for 14 days of relaxation. Start with a culinary tour and winery day trip on the mainland before chilling island-style in the Cycladic Islands. Cruise through the caldera of Santorini, prepare a typical Greek meal on Naxos, and recline on sandy beaches throughout.
On the way back, pass through the traditional villages of Vivlos, Agios Arsenios, and Glinado. You'll also head off-the-beaten-path to a traditional tavern and eat lunch in the town of Mesi Potamia. Enjoy this relaxing and authentic atmosphere set in the trees by the river.
If you want, you can expand your trip by an additional 8 miles (13 km) and opt for an inland route rather than cycling by the beaches. You'll still visit the traditional villages, as well as the Temple of Demeter and the Byzantine Church of Agios Mamas.
