Itinerary

ARRIVAL ATHENS

Arrive at Athens International Airport. Upon arrival, a representative will be waiting to greet you in the Arrivals Hall and the transportation service will transfer you to your hotel at the scheduled time. We recommend you to book an arrival flight that arrives in the morning prior to 12:00 pm to allow you to enjoy the day’s activity. Check in to your hotel and enjoy some free time to freshen up after your flight before the half-day tour of Cape Sounio. You will be collected from your hotel at 13:30 and driven along the coastal road, passing the wonderful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza on the way to Cape Sounio. You will have splendid views of the Saronic Gulf and its islands en route. Upon arrival in Cape Sounio, visit the Temple of Poseidon, one of the major monuments from the Golden Age of Athens. Poseidon was the ancient Greek god of the sea, and his temple dominates the southernmost tip of Attica, where the horizon meets the Aegean Sea. After visiting the impressive temple site, there will be time to explore the rocky cape of Sounio before being transferred back to your hotel at around 19:00.

ATHENS 

Start the day with breakfast at the hotel and then head out to explore the city at your own pace. We recommend you start in Syntagma Square, then move on to Plaka and the Acropolis. Alternatively, you can book the optional Athens Food Tour, which starts at 10:00. This tour will take you to different locations around the city and introduce you to a variety of local cuisine including koulouri, bougatsa, Greek meze, a variety of cheese and cured meats, different types of oils, souvlaki and more. This tour, which does not operate on Sundays, includes an English-speaking guide and food tastings. It does not include transfers to and from the hotel; instructions will be sent upon booking. The other optional tour available for this morning is the Half-Day Panoramic Athens Tour. If you have booked this tour, you will be collected from the hotel at 7:30 in the morning. The tour includes a guided visit to the Panathenaic Stadium, the Prime Minister's residence, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian's Arch, the Parliament, the memorial to the Unknown Soldier, the Academy, the University, the National Library and Syntagma Square. Then you will visit the Acropolis and see the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and, finally, the Parthenon. Finish the tour with a visit to the New Acropolis Museum. At the end of the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel at around 13:30. 

Overnight in Athens.

  Hotel:  None

DEPARTURE ATHENS 

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before preparing to check out of your room at the appropriate time. Enjoy a morning at your leisure in the capital and largest city in Greece. Visit the monuments and sites you best enjoyed from the day before or perhaps visit your favourite foodie destination for a second sample of a local delicacy. At the indicated time, the transportation service will transfer you to Athens International Airport for your onward or return flight. Although this is your last day with us in one of the world’s oldest cities, we are sure that the history, architecture and gastronomy of the cradle of Western civilisation will stay in your mind for a lifetime.
