Whether you're strolling, eating, or both, you'll get a full taste of Greek culture and history on this 13-day itinerary. After a mythology tour in Athens, go down to the island of Rhodes to get lost in its medieval old town. Follow that with a trip to Crete for more history and interactive olive grove and vineyard experiences, then tours through Corfu's food and architectural scenes before you return to Athens.
Your first stop is Achilleion Palace, built by Princess Sisi. This Empress of Austria was known as a woman obsessed with beauty. Because Sisi admired Greek mythology and culture, she designed the entire palace to honor Achilles, representing strength and vulnerability.
Next, visit the majestic "Old Palaces," built by the British Empire and named "Palace of Saints Michael and George." A guide will lead you down the mansion's complex of halls and buildings, featuring Roman architectural styles and captivating gardens.
The final stop on this tour is Mon Repos Palace, situated on the hill where archaeologists claim Corfu's ancient city once perched. This palace was a gift from a British commissioner to his beloved Corfiot wife.
