Things to do

Island Hopping Around the Aegean Sea, Greece - Things to do

A trip to Greece wouldn't be complete without a stop in Athens and a visit to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. Catch sunset drinks with epic views at Ciel Rooftop before dinner at Dopios.

Next, skip the long ferry ride in favor of a cheap flight on Aegean Airlines to Paros. Be sure to check out the old and beautiful seaside town of Naoussa with its many tavernas and cocktail bars. 

Santa Maria is a great beach on the northeast side. Be sure to get there early in order to grab a lounge chair or two. 

Take advantage of the 10-minute ferry ride to Antiparos, another little town with beautiful beaches.
