Nike - 15 days / 14 nights
Tinos (7 nights) - Mykonos (7 nights)
Athens, Tinos & Mykonos
Tinos and Mykonos offer the best two-center holidays. Beauty and charm of Tinos, combined with the cosmopolitan Mykonian atmosphere.
The combination of Tinos and Mykonos offers one of the best two-center holidays. You have the beauty and charm of Tinos, with the strong Greek ethnicity of the island, combined with and contrasted by the cosmopolitan atmosphere and chic nightlife represented by Mykonos.
Both islands offer outstanding beaches and wonderful architecture; and, while Tinos certainly has more than enough nightlife and shopping, there is no doubt that Mykonos is the destination in the Cyclades for night time excitement and boutique designer shops. Though the two islands are so close in proximity (separated by only a 6 km-wide strait), they couldn’t be more different, which makes the combination of the two all the more interesting!
Day 1: Athens International Airport, Tinos (Island)
Arrival at Athens International Airport. Our representative will transfer you to the Port of Rafina for your ferry or highspeed departure to Tinos.

There are plenty of walking trails throughout the island, but the best way to get to know Tinos is by car.
