You can continue by walking around the picturesque Plaka area, full of small shops.

Day 2Athens Tour

You will be picked up from the hotel to have a 4 hours panoramic city tour by coach. We will pass the must-see Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that stands in front of Parliament House on Syntagma Square. We will also pass from the Russian church, the Academy and the Library. We will make a stopover at the Temple of Zeus, to continue with Athens’ crowning glory, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Acropolis of Athens, cluster of ancient buildings that acted as a fortress. We continue with the fascinating Athens Acropolis Museum to see its staggering collection. Due to certain restrictions in the visiting hours of the new Acropolis museum the order of the program may change.

Day 3Athens Coast

We will drive along the coastal road, passing the wonderful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni & Varkiza to the most Southern point of Attica, Cape Sounion, where the white marble pillars of the Temple of Poseidon stand. On the way, you have a splendid view of the Saronic Gulf and several small islands. After visiting the ancient Temple of Poseidon, the God of Sea, you will have
time to walk at leisure on the rocky promontory of Sounio. We will return to Athens for a free afternoon in the city center for some souvenir shopping and lunch. Meet at a central point to return to the hotel.

Day 4Athens Archaeological Museum

Free day for leisure and walking around the city of Athens. Our special proposal is an optional tour with our expert guide to one of the 10 top museums of the world, the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

You can walk around Monastiraki and in the evening you will have a farewell dinner in a Greek traditional restaurant, with live Greek music and dance.

Day 5Off to Nafplio

Departure to Nafplio (137km), one of the most romantic cities all over Greece, capital of the newly born Greek state between 1823 and 1834. By bus, we will go to Palamidi Castle, which proudly stands 216 m above sea level or you can climb all of its 999 steps rock. Not to worry, though, the view from above here is totally rewarding! We will also visit Akronafplia, which is the historic rock at the foot of Palamidi hill, also known by its Turkish name “Its Kale” (meaning inner castle). Overnight in Nafplio.

Day 6Trip to Epidaurus

We will visit Epidaurus (37km). This UNESCO’S world heritage monument is probably most famous for its theatre, one of the best preserved classical Greek buildings, and still used today due to its amazing acoustics.
