Fun fact: Villa 1 was in the movie The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants which seems fitting for our trip as we hope that new sisterhoods will be formed while we experience the magical beauty of Greece!

DAY 1, SATURDAY

It's a looooong flight on Friday from the States to Greece, so the goal for this day is just to check into our accomodations and SLEEEEP (Tip: To save money, consider flying into Athens on the 22nd then taking a ferry to Santorini on the 23rd).

ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY:
•Check in 3pm or later

DAY 2, Sunday

On day 2 we'll sleep in & in the afternoon a private car will take us to Koloumbos beach, a beautiful black sand & rock beach, where we'll do photos on the beach just before the sunset.

ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY:
•Continental Breakfast
•Freetime
Sunset, Shoot #1: Photos at Koloumbos Beach 

DAY 3, MONDAY

To beat Oia's sunset crowds, we'll wake up at sunrise for flying dress photos on the rooftop of Villa #1. Afterwards, the day is free to enjoy as you choose...we're guessing naps will be in order after that early morning!

ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY:
Sunrise, Shoot #2: Flying dress photos on the rooftop of our villa in Oia
•Continental breakfast 
•Freetime

DAY 4, TUESDAY

After sleeping in & enjoying some freetime, we'll embark on a 4 hour private tour through the plains of Santorini. Our first stop is Fira, the capital of Santorini perched on the edge of an impressive cliff. After exploring this area, we'll continue on to Firostefani, the next village over. Then, we'll head to the picturesque village of Finikia, surrounded by slopes full of vineyards and stone threshing fields. You'll want to wear something cute as we'll be doing street photography on each leg of this tour!

ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY:
•Continental Breakfast
•Freetime
Sunset Shoot #3: Street photography in Fira, Firostefani, & Finikia Village 

day 5, wednesday

Another leisurely day to begin with, Wednesday will end with a winery tour. Today we'll explore the wineries of the island and learn about the long history of wine from grape cultivation to production. We will visit 3 wineries: BOUTARI, the first modern winery of the island where you will taste both Santorini varieties and wines from all over Greece. GAVALAS, a traditional winery with 17th century oak barrels that you will see during the cellar visit, and ARGYROS, today’s most modern estate with state of the art facilities where you will enjoy more varieties of wine paired with local delicacies. 

ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY:
•Continental Breakfast
•Freetime
•Winery Tour

day 6, thursday

This day is a total free day to explore Santorini on your own & do whatever you'd like. Walk to a nearby shop or restaurant, take naps, hang out in our hot tub with a glass of wine, head out for a night of dancing, or just enjoy the beauty of the island...the options are endless! This free day is also here just incase we need to move anything around due to inclement weather (fingers crossed for clear skies the entire trip!) or if we need to do an additional shoot for anyone who can't join us on the next day's sailboat trip due to sea sickness.

ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY:
•Continental Breakfast
•Freetime

DAY 7, FRIDAY

What better way to end our island adventure than with a private  sail around the crystal clear blue waters?! First, we'll visit the Red & White beaches. Next, we will sail past Akrotiri, then the volcanic island of Thirassia where we'll stop for swimming & spa-like mud baths in the warm waters. We'll continue to Palea Kameni island for swimming & snorkeling, then enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner complete with wine on board the ship at sunset. On this day you'll want to be sure to wear a cute swimsuit for sailboat & swimming photos! Also keep in mind that if you're prone to sea sickness, you may want to skip this sail & explore on your own as we won't be able to return to land until the end of the tour to ensure that other guests receive the experience they paid for.

ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY:
•Continental Breakfast
•Freetime
Sunset Shoot #4: Swimsuit sailboat photos
