Greek villas, turquoise waters, white huts, world famous beach parties and of course the rich architectural ruins: nothing explains the popular Greece trip to Athens–Santorini–Mykonos better than this!
So this 2018 beat the heat with a summer trip down to the beautiful nation of Greece. Here are five desi tips that will help you plan a fun-filled summer:
#1 The trio of Athens-Santorini-Mykonos is the most popular one amongst Indian travellers and you get great flight deals from Delhi to Athens with tickets ranging between 35000-45000 INR return per person . Popular are Gulf Air with a pit stop at Bahrain and Turkish Airlines which halts at Istanbul for journey break. Domestic flights and ferries are the two means for local travel from Athens to Santorini to Mykonos.
#2 Indians need a Schengen visa for Greece. Visa fee for adults in INR 4200 and is free for children under 12 years of age. There might be some additional fee charged by the VFS Centres as Service Fee. Euro is the currency of choice in Greece and like everyone has been popularly stating that the INR is strong against the Euro so its definitely a better year to travel in EU nations.
#3 You are in luck because Airbnb offers some of the best accommodation deals for all three destinations.
Plan a month ahead of time because Santorini sees approx 1.5 million travellers in the summer; so you will have to book well in advance.
# What to expect in Santorini? A dazzling panorama with caldera-edge clifftops and sparkling white buildings giving a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea, volcanic beaches and most romantic sunsets ever.
So just immerse yourself in dining on restaurant terraces with a dreamy view as far as the eye can see.
#5 Mykonos on the other hand is the Greek party island with a reputation to compete with the likes of Ibiza but only more fashionable and Greek white in style.
