Itinerary

DAY ACTIVITY

Urban Photo Trek

This two-in-one walk is perfect for getting to know Athens hidden alleys and hidden shops while capturing great pictures. Ideal for all camera types (even smart phones), and levels of photography, the guide shares inside stories while offering professional tips like lighting and composition for your perfect shot. You will pass the fashionable boulevards of central Athens, stop for impressive street art, and feel the pulse of the city with its many artisanal workshops, vintage stores, and avant-garde art galleries.

NIGHT ACTIVITY

Ouzo & More

In the spirit of the Greek god Dionysus, celebrate life with good drinks in good company with our Ouzo & More outing. Sample a range of Greek spirits including ouzo, tsipouro, mastika, and local wines. A guided expert will share with you about each libation while visiting at least four signature bars. Tastings will be accompanied by a range of sweet and savory “meze” snacks to complete the experience.

DAY ACTIVITY

Evening at “Mezodopoleio” Tavern

They say nightlife is what Athenians do best. Get ready for a one-of-a-kind evening of live Greek music and authentic food, the way locals let loose. Our complimentary concierge will reserve you a table at a lively Greek “mezodopoleio” where you can try Greek raki or wine, great dishes, and dancing. A tradition is for the men to throw flowers at women, so keep your eye out for flying carnations! To offer you full flexibility, dinner is not pre-purchased. (Available only Fri, Sat, Sun)

DAY ACTIVITY

Excursion Vouliagmeni and Sounio

A short drive from the center, you’ll visit two incredible must-sees. First stop is Vouliagmeni Lake, a nationally-recognized thermal spa known for its healing properties and minerals and its “spa fish” who gently nibble away dead skin cells of swimmers. Take in the beautiful drive down the coast, and your second stop at Cape Sounio offers a breathtaking sunset view, and a dose of history. Stand in the ruins of Poseidon’s Temple, the god of the sea who held a very high position to the ancient Greeks, second only to Zeus himself. Complete the outing with a scenic dinner at a local restaurant known for their delicious fresh seafood before returning home.
