<h2>Sample Three Destinations in Greece</h2>

The <a href="http://www.virgin-vacations.com/site_vv/pub_detail.asp-iDept-333-id-11164-iFrom-5/1/2009-k-1033" target="_blank">Greek Island Hopper</a> package offered by Virgin Vacations is a nice way to sample several of Greece's most popular destinations. You'll fly from New York City (JFK) or Newark to Athens, and spend one night in the capital city. From there, you'll hop a high-speed ferry to Mykonos for three nights before ferrying over to Santorini for another three nights. The trip concludes with a ferry back to Athens for a final night before your return flight to the U.S. Continental breakfast at each hotel is included.

The Island Hopper starts at $1,249 for departures from May 1 through 24. Other departure cities are available at higher prices: Washington, D.C., departures cost an extra $50, flights from New Orleans are an additional $350, and San Diego departures tack on an extra $450. You can also choose to fly to and from the islands for just over $100. Book by March 31.
