You don't have to be an all-night party person to get the most out of Mykonos. The early evening scene is centred on Little Venice where you can sip a cocktail at one of the many bars and cafes which are so close to the water's edge that your feet get soaked when a boat passes. Mykonos attracts a broad clientele - celebrities, politicians, the beautiful people and ordinary mortals all flock here to see and be seen at the glitzy "anything goes" clubs for which the island is now world famous.

Patmos (4:30 pm - 9:00 pm) is known as the site of the apocalyptic revelations of St. John the Divine, written here during his exile from the Roman Empire. The cave where he lived is near the site of the Monastery of the Apocalypse. The Monastery of St. John, built on one of the island’s highest points, houses priceless icons and manuscripts in its Treasury.Street of Knights
Vacation Day 7 - Wednesday: Rhodes Greece - Cruise

Knossos
Heraklion, Crete (7:00 am - 11:30 am) Enjoy a nice morning walk  tour to the center of Heraklion town. Maybe have a coffee, a Greek dessert or an ice cream in one of the many coffee shops/patisseries in Heraklion's main square. Just three miles away from the port is the ruins of the Palace of Knossos. Discovered in 1899 and partially reconstructed, the elaborate Palace is believed to be the mythical Labyrinth of King Minos and the seat of ancient Minoan culture. An optional tour is available.

The island of Santorini (4:30 pm) is perhaps the most breathtaking of all the Greek Islands. Gather your luggage as we disembark and are transferred to our hotel in time to enjoy an evening in the town of Thira. Walk the narrow streets and explore the white-washed houses, open-air cafes and glittering boutiques that cling to steep cliffs.

Sleep late, visit one of the many black sand beaches or join the optional morning sailing tour. The leisurely sail gives us a chance to explore a Volcano (entrance not included) and take a refreshing dip in the warm waters of a Hot Springs.
Oia Sunset
Sunset in Oia is not to be missed! In the evening hordes of people arrive simply to watch its sunset. Every available seat, wall, step or patch of ground is occupied so our group will arrive in time to browse the tiny shops and get a good view. After sunset we will have our farewell dinner at a local taverna. 

Vacation Day 10 - Saturday - Depart Santorini, Greece
After breakfast we will be transferred to the Santorini airport to fly back home. Say goodbye to all your new friends and the end of another Greece singles vacation. (Remember to co-ordinate your Athens flight home with your Santorini flight)   **See Flight information below

Book Your Greece Optional Tours

Flight Information For Your Greece Singles Vacation

Best Single Travel recommends booking round trip airfare from your hometown to Athens, Greece. Then book a one-way ticket from Santorini to Athens. Santorini is served by Santorini National Airport (JTR), which is located just 5 miles SE of Fira. The two national carriers – Aegean Airlines and Olympic Airlines – offer direct flights between Athens and Santorini. The flight takes 45-50 min and the fares depend a lot on when you book the ticket. Starting from May there are 4 flights per day operated by each of the two airlines (so 8 total flights). In order to save money, you should look into booking your ticket as early as possible and make sure to fly early in the morning (the evening flights are more expensive).
