DAY ACTIVITY

One-Day Cruise to Hydra, Poros, and Aegina

A trip to Greece seems incomplete without an island. So let’s do three!  This chic day cruise is a perfect way to see local islands while being immersed in culture and entertainment. Set sail on a beautiful ship featuring a live Greek band, dancers, and two bars. Between stops, be prepared to join the dance with a delicious cocktail in hand. Meet the traditional donkeys of Hydra and take a swim near a rocky cliff. Enjoy a coffee in Poros with lovely views and explore the town. In Aegina, explore the Temple of Aphaia with sweeping views. Delicious lunch included with optional breakfast.

DAY ACTIVITY

Greek Lovers Tour

Join Eros, god of love, as we explore the meaning of “erotas” and how Athenians have been expressing it for centuries. Stroll the streets and learn about the history of ancient Greek passion, famous affairs, and homoerotic scandals from heroes to philosophers. It’s a fun way to see the city and hear unexpected tales. The guide tells some steamy stories, so be prepared to blush.

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

Ancient Delphi Day Excursion

Journey to the place once believed to be the center of the world, and the site where Apollo spoke through his oracle. The excursion begins in the morning with a pickup from your accommodation, with potential stops and spectacular views along the way. Located two hours from Athens, the archaeological site awaits you with both its museum and grounds ready to be explored with a knowledgeable private guide.

After the site visit, you will continue to the picturesque seaside village of Galaxidi where your group will enjoy a leisurely stroll and a delicious lunch in one of the local taverns. Galaxidi has a small beach so the option for a little swim is also available. This excursion lasts approximately nine hours, including a 2-hour guided tour of the archaeological site and museum, transportation, refreshments and snacks, and hotel pick-up and drop-off.

DAY ACTIVITY

Wine Bar Hop

What’s one of the best ways to see a new city? Through its lively wine bars, of course! Your local sommelier will lead you to some of Athens’ top wine bars to learn basic tasting techniques.
