On your final day, enjoy a private excursion to Lindos, a photogenic whitewashed city with a hilltop castle built by Crusaders and encircled by a mix of 15th-century cut-limestone and Cycladic-style houses.
Continue to Santorini, to a luxury resort overlooking the island’s panoramic caldera, for three nights. Enjoy a private tour that includes private wine tasting, a visit to photogenic Oia, and a visit to the Museum of Prehistoric Thera with its clay pots and frescoes from the excavation at Akrotiri.
