Fly to Athens with Aegean Air. Transfer to the Pythagorion Hotel (or similar) for 1 night. Time at leisure to enjoy the Greek capital. (N)
Transfer to the port of Piraeus, for the 2.5-hour crossing to Serifos in the western Cyclades. Transfer to the Dorkas Hotel (or similar) for 2 nights. Free time to explore the local town of Livádion. (B)
Full day to explore Serifos, an island of raw, rugged beauty, steep mountains and broad bays. Be sure to take a ride up to Hora, the island’s ‘capital’, a maze of twisting streets with a neoclassical town hall and a blue-domed church. (B)
Morning transfer to the port and a 4-hour ferry crossing to Syros. Check in to the Brazzera Hotel (or similar) for 3 nights, a simple but utterly charming property right on the beach. (B)
Two full days to enjoy Syros at leisure. Despite its size, Syros is the most populated Cyclades island and the administrative centre of the region. The main town, Ermoupoli, is a maze of pink and white buildings, tumbling down the hillside and is well worth exploring. (B)

Explore Tinos, known for its Orthodox
pilgrimage site, the Church of the Annunciation, in the port and main town (also known as Hora). Outside the town, the island is a patchwork of 40 marble-ornamented villages found in hidden bays and terraced hillsides. (B)
Return to Athens via a 4-hour crossing to Rafina Port, then transfer to the Pythagorion Hotel (or similar) for 1 night. Free time to enjoy a meal in the Plaka neighbourhood, surrounding the Acropolis. (B)
