How to Spend 8 Perfect Days in Greece

A perfect girls trip itinerary for Greece includes ancient wonders, azure seas, sun-drenched islands, and plenty of incredible food and wine. If that sounds like the making of a perfect vacation recipe, join us for eight days in Greece this fall…eight days of pure bliss in this Mediterranean paradise.

Day 1: Arrive in Athens

Once everyone touches down in Athens, the country’s capital and largest city, we’ll check into our new ‘home’ and take a leisurely stroll around the city. It’s been a long travel day, but before calling it a night, we’ll enjoy dinner and wine together, toasting the adventures ahead. Cheers to an amazing eight days in Greece!

Day 2: Greek History & Food 101

Day two of the perfect girls trip itinerary for Greece is all about discovering the very best of Athens, which largely revolves around food, scenery, and ancient monuments! We’ll rent bicycles and pedal through the city’s history, ending our route at the Acropolis, where we’ll take a tour. After working up an appetite, indulge in the best gyros the city has to offer.

As the sun sets, a sommelier will guide us through Athens’ food and wine culture. Sample olive oil and fresh-baked treats, pop into a hip bar for a wine tasting, then enjoy dinner and unforgettable views of the Parthenon at a top restaurant.

Day 3: Self-Care Day

After two days of adventure, it's time to unwind. Sleep in a bit, then begin your day with a centering meditation session led by yours truly (Lea!). Afterward, we’ll indulge in luxurious one-hour treatments at a traditional Hammam spa, also known as a Turkish bath. Relaxation takes center stage here, with a lineup of treatments including hair washing, body scrub, and massage. The afternoon is yours to explore on your own before we reconvene for dinner at Point, a rooftop bar known for its glamorous cocktails and Acropolis views.

Day 4: Head to the Islands

Bid farewell to Athens as we jet off on a short 50-minute flight to the enchanting island of Santorini, where we’ll spend the next stretch of our eight days in Greece. After checking into our dreamy island villa, we’ll head out for a private tour of Santorini's most picturesque villages: Firostefani, Imerovigli, and iconic Oia, with its blue domed roofs. End the day with a fabulous dinner at the hillside Metaxi Mas, featuring local cuisine and wine.

Day 5: Sail Santorini

Fun fact: behind grapes, tomatoes are the second-most important product grown on Santorini. With that in mind, we’ll visit the Tomato Industrial Museum to learn all about the island’s distinctly sweet mini tomatoes. Later, set sail on a catamaran, where you'll swim in volcanic hot springs, snorkel, and enjoy dinner onboard during sunset.

Day 6: Hike and Explore Oia

Kickstart your morning with breakfast and meditation at the villa before embarking on one of the best hikes in Greece. The moderate 6.5-mile trek from Fira to Oia takes us through famous cliffside whitewashed villages. If you prefer, opt out of the hike and instead enjoy a leisurely day exploring Fira and Oia, simply wandering and popping into shops and eateries. End the day with a sunset dinner in Oia overlooking the sea.

Day 7: Wine Tasting

What’s a perfect girls trip itinerary for Greece without a day devoted to wine? After morning meditation, we’ll visit three of Lea's favorite Santorini wineries, nibbling on local cheeses and tapas along the way. Back at the villa, enjoy a private dinner prepared by Michelin star-awarded Chef Giannis.

Day 8: Beach-Hopping

Spend your final full day in Greece exploring the postcard-perfect village of Megalochori and then beach-hopping around Santorini. After soaking up some quiet moments (and plenty of Mediterranean sunshine!), we’ll enjoy one final night out together at PK Cocktail Bar.
