Athens to Syros, The Cyclades: 8 Days

Kea is a hiker's paradise with numbered routes that take you through a variety of landscapes to remote coves and the ruins of ancient cities.
Day 2 : Sifnos
The port of Kamares is nice combination of beach, restaurants and a few bars all within walking distance. Apollonia, in the center of the island, has fun nightlife and fantastic food and wine. Kamares is one of the best beaches in Greece for families because of the long, shallow, sheltered bay. Cruise on your Cyclades superyacht charter around the archipelago and explore Kastro, a quaint old village or the beaches at Vathi and Platys Gialos.
Day 3: Milos
A volcanic island with spectacular rock formations and hot springs, Milos has fantastic beaches like Paliochori, Hivadolimni and the tiny cove of Sarakiniko, one of the most interesting places on earth to swim. The village of Pollonia has great swimming, restaurants and you can take the tender to the island of Kimilos. The main village of Plaka is made up of the cubic white houses which the Cyclades are known for. The island is rich with archeological sites including Christian catacombs, a Roman amphitheater, Venetian castles, museums and don't forget, the famous Venus de Milo was found here.
Day 4: Santorini
Be seduced by the extraordinary landscape, spectacular heights and breathtaking sunsets of Santorini.
Day 5: Ios
Enjoy the gorgeous islands surrounding Santorini: Thirassia, Palea and Nea Kameni. After, cruise north to overnight at Ios.
Day 6: Paros
Perhaps the most beautiful islands in the archipelago, Paros has some of the finest beaches and is famous for its stunning white marble.
Day 7: Mykonos
Expensive, decadent and fun for adults and families, Mykonos is an island that was created to look good in postcards. Intense nightlife with clubs that never stop and some of the finest restaurants and hotels in Greece, this is a true jet-setters island. For a little culture, there are trips to the uninhabited ancient island of Delos and the extensive ruins there, among the best in Greece. Plenty of excellent, if not crowded, beaches but people don't come to Mykonos to escape but to party and people-watch.
Day 8: Delos and Syros
Delos is the archaeological jewel of the Cyclades. Also, it is the birthplace of Apollo, the god of light, poetry, music, healing and prophecy. Syros is a beautiful town, more like a small city with gorgeous architecture, cobblestone streets and great cafes. In the late 1800's the town was the main port for Greece and is full of old buildings, churches and mansions that have now been restored. After an eventful day you'll start your overnight cruise back to Athens.
