This is your custom tailored vacation through the Greek Islands that will bring you to the precipice of grandeur. Look out over the never-ending wonder of Greece, where famous philosophers and humanity thrived, and get ready for an unforgettable vacation designed specifically to highlight the famous Greek islands and Athens.
Athens - Greek Beginnings
Welcome to Athens, the gateway to the islands and the cradle of Western Civilization. At the airport, you will be met by a private transfer that will take you into the center of the ancient city, where you can breathe in the history that has inspired people, countries, and the world alike. Acropolis hill rises over the city at its core, literally and figuratively, once that actual center of history. Wander along the foothill of the Acropolis and enjoy a taste of the islands to come with a visit to the neighborhood of Anafiotika, a stunning area of whitewashed homes that climb up the slope of the hill. The neighborhood was built in the 19th century by villagers brought from the Cyclades to give them a reminder of home. The narrow paths are nothing less than charming, as bougainvillea give a burst of color to the immaculate walls. The sweet aroma of flaky filo filled with rich cheese drifts from a tiny restaurant along the stairway, welcoming you inside and into Greece.
