Tour Description

Day #1

The first day, enjoy a tour of Athens in a modern, air-conditioned bus. Visit the most glorious sightseeing of Athens in just one morning. Start with a visit in the Panathenaic Stadium (short stop), where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896, all made in white marble. Continue to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the largest temple of the ancient times, the Arch of Hadrian, the Greek Parliament and the Neoclassical trilogy along Panepistimiou Avenue: the Academy, the University and the National Library.

Last stop is the masterpiece of classical Greece: the Acropolis. This eternal symbol of perfection is located on top of a large rock and around this rock the town has spread from the ancient times till today. See the Propylaea, the temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and certainly the marvelous Parthenon. Our experienced professional guide will explain in detail everything you will see.

After the Holy Rock of the Acropolis, we visit the New Acropolis Museum, located right opposite the rock. In the three floors of the museum, visitors can see all the findings from excavations in the Holy Rock, findings from excavations in other regions of Attica and certainly the famous marble frieze of Parthenon. The view to the Acropolis from the cafeteria of the museum is magnificent.

Day #2

The next day, be prepared to discover the beautiful islands of the Saronic Gulf, all located in close distance to Athens. Transfer by bus to the port of embarkation. The cruise ship departs at 08h30 and arrives in Hydra at 11h45. This is a romantic little island with picturesque architecture and lovely bays.

At 13h30, we sail to Aegina through the channel of Poros. While lunch is served, you will see the lovely town of Poros, the green nature of the island and the amazing waters around it.

We arrive in Aegina at 15h30 so that you can walk around the town and swim in the many beaches in a walking distance from the port. Optionally you can take a bus tour to the Temple of Athena Aphaia in the centre of the island.
