Two weeks hopping between picturesque Greek islands, visiting historical sights and relaxing under that famously blue Mediterranean sky. Sound perfect? Join us as we explore three beautiful Dodecanese Islands, staying in hotels that allow you to revel in every minute of your leisure time. Walk the pathways of medieval Rhodes, zip along the craggy coastline of Symi in a private boat, see the sweeping island views from the Byzantine Castle on Leros - it’s all waiting for you on this wonderful holiday.
14 nights in hotels (accommodation as specified or similar)
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Rhodes. On arrival we transfer you to the Akti Imperial Hotel (4T+), for the next four nights on an all-inclusive basis.
We travel the short distance to the UNESCO-protected medieval city of Rhodes, one of the most important in Europe. Our included walking tour with local guide will explore the gates, towers, squares and churches, as well as the Castle of Knights, encased within a 4km wall. The remainder of the day is at leisure.
Today, join an included excursion to Lindos, a beautiful city in the south of the island overlooked by the Acropolis, from which you can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding harbours and coastline.
You might choose to simply relax and enjoy the hotel’s excellent facilities today; or perhaps return to the city of Rhodes to enjoy its shady squares and tavernas. You may wish to join an optional tour of some of the rural villages on the island.
Rhodes - Symi
Travel by catamaran to Symi, with the rest of the day at leisure at Pedi Beach Hotel (3T), where we stay for three nights.
Today, we enjoy a full-day tour of the island by private boat, travelling along the dramatic jagged coastline, continuing south across the island to Panormitis. Here we visit the famous 18th century monastery of Taxiarchis Michael Panormitis, perhaps one of the most interesting churches on the island. We conclude our tour with a short cruise to the tiny islet of Sesklia, where the Athenians sought refuge from the Spartans during the Peloponnese War. On our return journey we stop in the beautiful natural bay of St George’s to enjoy the superb scenery and tranquil atmosphere.
Spend today at leisure.
Symi - Leros
We depart our hotel and journey, by catamaran, to the remote and peaceful island of Leros, adorned with white-washed villages, fertile valleys and green hills. Our hotel is the Crithoni Paradise Hotel (4T), where we stay for four nights on a half-board basis.
We have included a full-day tour of the island today, exploring some of its historical sites and scenic offerings. We visit the Franco-Byzantine fort, which overlooks the capital town of Platanos, and the Byzantine castle on Mount Kasteli. Continue to the picturesque old Greek port of Agia Marina, with its pretty waterfront and old windmill.
Two days to enjoy the pleasant surroundings of your hotel, or perhaps book an excursion to visit the island of Patmos, where St John is said to have written the Book of Revelation while in exile.
Leros - Rhodes
We take the catamaran back to Rhodes for a final three nights at the Akti Imperial Hotel (4T+).
You are at leisure for the final two days of your Greek odyssey.
