Florence

Your family trip starts in enchanting Florence, where our driver will pick you up at the airport and take you to your hotel in the city. You can spend this first night and the next morning as you wish and fill your batteries for the adventure that lies ahead.

On the evening of your second night, you will explore Florence at your own pace alongside our expert guide. Walk along the river Arno with a gelato cone in hand and discover the city's highlights through local stories!

By visiting crowded piazzas, palaces, gardens, galleries, and lively neighborhoods, this tour will unravel all the magic of Florence.

Your guide will take you to the prime example of the Italian Renaissance, the Duomo, and guide you through shopping and restaurant ideas in the end so you can continue the exploration yourselves.

On day 3, you will take a trip to Lucca and Pisa, two beautiful cities near Florence. You can walk around Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa’s famous central square, and the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa.

We challenge you to strike the silliest pose while holding up the tower! You will also visit the impressive Duomo and later Lucca, where you will spend time in Piazza dell Amfiteatro, Guinigi Tower, and Lucca Cathedral, which await exploration.

The Cathedral, with its remarkable architecture and interior sculptures, will give you a taste of Lucca's rich cultural heritage.

On day 4, we will take you on a beautiful train ride to Rome. Your kids can relax and enjoy the picturesque views with a window seat in the Tuscan countryside.

Upon arrival at the train station in Rome, our driver will be waiting for you to transport you to the hotel. Take your time to relax with your family before setting off on a new, exciting journey.

The following day, you will explore the history of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum with our skip-the-lines admission tour. The tour includes multimedia and other props to keep your kids engaged!

Gladiator stories and information about the daily life of the ancient Romans will captivate you, and the fact that you will walk past the long entrance line will make you not want to leave the Roman Forum.

Are you ready to unravel the many myths of the hill of the Acropolis? Our expert guide’s story-telling skills will be accompanied by a booklet introducing children to the secrets of the sacred temples.

Immerse yourselves in the magic of ancient Greece and discover the three temples up at the Acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena.

The contest between Athena and Poseidon for the city's ownership, Athena’s olive tree, and the glorious Parthenon are all stories that will make everyone excited about the intricate Greek myths and their symbolism.

Days 9-11

Naxos

On day 9, it is time to leave the hustle and bustle of the Greek capital for the tranquility of an island. We will handle your private transportation to the airport, where you will catch a flight to Naxos Island. Once you arrive at Naxos Airport, our driver will take you to your accommodation.

Next morning, you will embark on a family adventure to the Naxian countryside. Meet local animals, like donkeys, walk through an olive grove, indulge in a game of archery, and meet a local beekeeper!

The tour wouldn’t be complete without being able to savor the fresh flavors at a local restaurant. Our local escort will unravel all the secrets behind local dishes and will make sure you try the renowned local custard pastry, galaktoboureko.

Before leaving, there is a surprise for the adults; you will visit a local distillery and taste the local liquor, citron, made from the fruit and leaves of the citron tree.

Your last day in Naxos is free to spend it as you please. You can stroll in the cobblestone streets of the beautiful town, do your souvenir shopping, or even better, if your family loves the beach, visit one of the stunning beaches of Naxos, such as Plaka, Agios Prokopios or Mikri Vigla.

Days 12-14

Crete

It is now time to leave the island of Naxos behind you and visit the vibrant island of Crete, the biggest island in Greece.

A driver will pick you up from your hotel and transport you to the ferry station, where you will ride the ferry to Crete. Once you arrive, we will arrange your transportation to your hotel in Elounda.

Day 13 is dedicated to exploring the largest Bronze Age archaeological site in Crete, Knossos. After discovering the myths of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth, get introduced to the rich Cretan cuisine on our local food tour around Heraklion!

Try bougatsa, the traditional pie filled with cream custard, kaltsounia, a delicious Cretan pastry, do an olive oil and cheese tasting, visit an organic honey shop, and get introduced to the local herbs to which the Cretan cuisine owes its fame.

By the end of this experience, you will have combined the best of Crete, including its fascinating history, brought to life amidst Minoan ruins, and the mouthwatering flavors that define the island's culinary identity.

Your last day in Elounda is free to spend as you wish. You can walk around the main village of Agios Nikolaos or relax at one of the many lakeside cafes.

Another option is the island of Spinalonga, not far from the coast; the Venetian and Ottoman fortifications will offer you and your family an adventure back in time. A fun activity that might appeal to your kids is a visit to Amazonas Park, featuring various animals and plants.

Older kids and teenagers can engage in water sports such as paddleboarding, kayaking, or windsurfing at Elounda Beach, and even if they are at a beginner’s level, they can take lessons.
