ATHENS - CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION

After your arrival in the mythical city of Athens, the transfer to your hotel will be conducted in one of our private vehicles. A member of our English speaking team will meet you at your hotel, help you with the check-in, inform you of all the details of your trip, introduce you to the city and its everyday way of life and answer any questions you may have. The rest of the day is free for you to relax and enjoy Athens at your own pace.

Greca Tip: Extend your stay by adding nights during Step 1 of 3 of your reservation!

TOURIST BUS - HOP ON HOP OFF FOR 48 HS.

TOURIST BUS - HOP ON HOP OFF FOR 48 HS.

Take your seat and enjoy the city of Athens and its suburbs in a comfortable open top, double-decker bus with this unique 48-hour pass and for as many times as you wish. Available in more than 16 languages including English, Spanish and Chinese with departures from selected points all over Athens as well as from the cruise terminal.

In the evening you can join our English-speaking guide in a leisurely but very informative walk through the prettiest districts of Athens, such as Anafiotika, Tiseo, Monastiraki and Plaka.

Orange Line
Visit the Acropolis and the Parthenon. The orange line will take you on a tour of the most beautiful attractions of the Athenian historic center, where among others, you can see the neighborhoods of Plaka, Thisseo, and Monastiraki, considered to be some of the most traditional and lively areas of Athens! You can also visit the famous "Adrian’s Gate" in honour of the Roman Emperor, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, built during the Roman period and the largest temple in Greece at the time, the Hellenic Parliament in order to witness the change of Guards at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Ermou Street, the heart of the capital’s commercial district. Do not hesitate to explore the Panathenaic Stadium, where the first modern Olympic Games were held, the National Library and a little further away the National Archaeological Museum.

Blue Line - Piraeus
If you arrive by cruise you can begin your tour immediately upon disembarkation from any of the stops specifically located in the vicinity of the cruise terminal. You will marvel at the charming ports of Pasalimani, Turcolimano, the yacht marina and even "Mikrolimano", the old port of Piraeus. By combining the Orange Line with the Blue Line you will not miss out on the impressive new Acropolis Museum or the Acropolis Hill with superb views of the Parthenon.

Yellow Line - Glyfada
Begin your tour of the Athenian Riviera from the "Planetarium" stop of the Blue Line. Discover how once one of the least populated places has now become one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Greece. From the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to the largest marina, in the Mediterranean "Marina Alimou", the Yellow Line to Glyfada is a mixture of history and modernism; a combination of old-time culture and contemporary entertainment. Do not miss the sunset seen from the Marina Flisvou, or sunbathe and swim in the Aghios Kosmas beaches. In the Glyfada Terminal, you can also stroll in the most cosmopolitan neighborhoods of the capital, shop in the luxurious department stores, relax in the beautiful cafes and enjoy a delicious cocktail in one of the sea-front bars.

Green Line - Vouliagmeni
Vouliagmeni may have been associated with beaches, but the area is a history lesson in itself. From the Allied Forces Cemetery to the Byzantine Museum, Vouliagmeni is certainly worth visiting with Green Line. Relax on the beautiful Kavouri Oceanis beach, one of the most popular beaches in Athens. Discover Vouliagmeni Lake, the hidden treasure of Attica’s nature and have a truly natural and unique thermal spa experience.

Train of Happiness - Piraeus
If you arrive by cruise, you can start your visit immediately upon disembarkation at one of the stops located in the vicinity of the cruise terminal.  With Blue Line or with this train line operating its distinctive vehicles, you can roam in the narrow streets of Piraeus and get a closer look of this sizeable teeming port.  Among others, important landmarks are the impressive Municipal Theater, the Nautical Museum,  the Pasalimani port as well as Korai Square, the commercial center of Piraeus.

Greca Tip: If you want a truly memorable and romantic experience, combine this tour with the Cape Sounion Sunset Tour package.

DAY CRUISE - NAVIGATING LIKE ODYSSEUS

DAY CRUISE - NAVIGATING LIKE ODYSSEUS

In the morning, after your breakfast, you will be transferred to the port to commence your full day cruise to three of the most beautiful islands of the Saronic Gulf, Aegina, famous for its variety of pistacios, Poros for its scenic beauty and Hydra, the greenest of these islands, where cars and larger vehicles are prohibited. On board the ship, you will also have the chance to enjoy lunch in the accompaniment of traditional Greek dances.  At the end of the day you will be comfortably transferred back to your hotel.

Greca Tip: Try the different varieties of pistachio nuts grown on the famous island of Aegina.

FROM ATHENS TO THE ORACLE OF DELPHI & METEORA, KALAMBAKA

FROM ATHENS TO THE ORACLE OF DELPHI & METEORA, KALAMBAKA

In the morning and after a solid breakfast you will visit Delphi, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the center or navel of the ancient world.  It was here where the renowned Oracle of Delphi, a counsellor of kings and pilgrims, could be found. You cannot miss out on a visit to the museum, which houses the "bronze charioteer", a masterpiece of Greek sculpture.

At the end of your Delphi tour, you will leave the slopes of Mount Parnassus, and head towards the plains of Thessaly, where the city of Kalambaka is located.  

Upon your arrival in Kalambaka you will check in at your hotel, have dinner and rest or you can go out to explore the town’s old picturesque district with its narrow cobblestoned streets and traditional houses. 

Greca Tip: We suggest using your free time to visit the Temple of Athena Pronaia at Delphi.

FROM KALAMBAKA TO ATTICA - ATHENS
5
FROM KALAMBAKA TO ATTICA - ATHENS

Early in the morning you will visit Meteora, recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1988.  In this mysterious landscape, the natural beauty is combined with the compelling presence of the eternal monasteries suspended or "meteora" on top of the huge rocks. Currently there are only six in use, five for the male and one for the female monastic community.  

On the way back to Athens, you will pass by Thermopylae, where you can see the statue of the Spartan King Leonidas I, famous for leading the battle against the Persians in 480 BC. You will arrive in Athens in the late afternoon and be dropped off at your hotel.

Dresscode in the monasteries: Sleeveless clothing and shorts above the knee are not allowed. Skirts, shawls and trousers are available at the entrance of the monasteries in case visitors do not have such clothing to cover themselves with.

Greca Tip: Take a stroll in Kalambaka's old town and look for handmade woodcarved objects and religious icons as well as home-made sausages, honey, fruit sweets and jams, and the regional pudding (“spatoula”) or “halva” for a sweet aftertaste.

GOODBYE ATHENS - FAREWELL GREECE!
