Itinerary

DAY ACTIVITY

Ancient Nemea: A Wine & Ruins Outing

Join us on an excursion to the wondrous valley of Nemea, where ancient Greeks held games in honor of Zeus, and modern Greeks have turned it into a renowned wine region. Located only an hour and a half from Athens, your private driver will take you first to explore the ancient ruins of the temple and stadium. Next, you will relax at a well-known vineyard estate for an in-depth tour, wine tasting seminar, olive oil tasting, and finally a tasting of five internationally awarded premium wines paired with a cheese and meat platter.

DAY ACTIVITY

Precious Jewels Tour and Shopping Experience

Discover over 6,000 years of Greek jewelry from prehistoric designs to modern pieces. Begin with the Benaki Museum, where our our field expert will you through the Benaki’s vast collections of jewelry, and explain the various processes and materials that fueled Greece’s jewelry trade over the ages, and the customs and rituals that put jewelry at the heart of Greek culture. VIP guests will then be invited to visit the museum’s underground vaults and hold in their hands the precious artifacts of the 19th century that are currently not on public display. A De Beers Diamonds International Award jewelry designer winner will join guests at the Museum to explain the practice, history and many wonders of Greek jewelry art. After the museum tour, visit Greece’s top jewelry designers to browse for your own beautiful piece to take home.

DAY ACTIVITY

Learn Greek Gourmet

This 5-hour gastronomical indulgence will give you a real look into the secrets of Mediterranean cuisine as you cook alongside an Athenian chef. Begin with a trip to the fresh market, select your own ingredients, and then learn how to prepare a three-course Greek meal in the chef’s residence. Indulge all your senses with this delightful authentic cooking experience.

DAY ACTIVITY

Goddess For a Day

This perfect spa day ensures you will be pampered like a “thea” – or goddess in true Greek fashion. At an award-winning spa, unwind with a hammam or sauna session, and continue with a customized facial based on your skins needs, a deep relaxing massage with essential oils, and finish with a flawless manicure.
