Day 2 Athens

After breakfast, wander the landmarks of Historic Athens including the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum focused on the findings from the Acropolis.

Ancient yet modern, classic yet creative, traditional yet constantly changing… Athens is a city of memorable contrasts. The past and the present of Athens unfolds before your eyes while driving around the city's highlight spots and monuments like the Temple of Zeus, the Old Stadium, Syntagma Square, the Parliament and the Tomb to the Unknown Soldier, the Academy, the Library, and the National Gardens.

On the natural fortress of the Acropolis, reinforced by the hand of man, stand the Propylaea, the temple of the Winged Victory, Erechtheion with the Porch of the Caryatids and, towering overall, and the majestic Parthenon.  A winding path leads to the treasure of antiquity. Visible are the relics of the civilization of which we are the proud inheritors.  A few meters away from the Acropolis entrance and the Ancient Theatre of Dionysos, the New Acropolis Museum, built on pedestrian walkway of Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, looks like hanging between the past and the present of Athens. 

Designed by Bernard Tschumi and Mihalis Fotiades, the new Acropolis Museum has a total area of 25,000 square meters, with exhibition space of over 14,000 square meters. Made of stainless steel, glass, marble and concrete, materials typical of the Athenian environment, the new museum has a direct view of the Acropolis. With bioclimatic planning, which gives ideal lighting and heating conditions, the New Museum offers all the amenities expected in an international museum of the 21st century.

Proceed on foot to visit different spots taste local products like olive oil, honey, cheese, wine, vinegar, liquor, and sweets, all made by small producers from all over Greece. Next, it’s a treat from the street, as you sample a koulouri, one of the all-time classic snacks on the go and then a cup of authentic Greek coffee in a wonderful old café. After this, get ready to duck into a boisterous visit to the central fish and meat market, where butchers and fishmongers compete for the attention of Athens’ serious food shoppers. The old Central Market of Athens (Varvakios Agora) is located exactly in the heart of the city, and learn from your guide about the city's culinary history. You'll next visit specialty food stores to try local produce cold cuts, and discover some of the hidden stores to purchase tantalizingly fresh fruit, Greek olives, cheese, ham and other alluring deli produce, local wine, aged aromatized vinegar, organic olive oil and honey.  Around the corner is the famous spice street of Athens, lined with traditional herb shops that also carry amazing specialty meats and other traditional delicacies. After that you will end up having lunch, tasting the famous Greek souvlaki!!  & traditional spinach pie. Finally, a last stop to taste the Greek specialty loukoumades (Greek doughnuts with honey syrup and almonds) and return to your hotel.

Overnight stay in Athens at the Acropolian Spirit Boutique Hotel.


Day 3 Athens Corinth & Ancient Olympia Zakynthos Island

After breakfast, start your journey from Athens till Corinth first stop.

Since 1893, it separates Central Greece from Peloponnese, so you will have to cross it to reach the peninsula Peloponnese. Before it was built, if you wanted to go from the Ionian Sea to the Aegean Sea and Saronic Gulf by boat, you had to make a 400km detour! The original idea of a canal emerged at the end of the 7th century B.C, but it couldn’t be achieved with the ancient technologies. Instead, the boats were towed on a paved road. Another particularity of Corinth Canal is its 2 submersible bridges. Located at each end of the Canal, they must be lowered into the water every time a boat cross. It’s quite unique to watch.

Head towards Ancient Olympia. Located in the western Peloponnese, Ancient Olympia was one of the most sacred and glorious sanctuaries of the ancient world. And, though only the foundations of many of its structures remain, it is still one of the most evocative of Greece’s archaeological sites. Capturing all the spirit of the Olympic Games, it’s also the place where the Olympic flame is lit in commemoration of the Games that originated and were held here every four years for a staggering 1,000 years. The most important building of the Altis (or Sacred Precinct of Zeus) was the immense 5th-century-BC Doric temple dedicated to the king of the gods. It housed Pheidias’ statue of Zeus for more than 800 years. One column of the temple has been restored, allowing you to appreciate its size. Passing through a stone archway, you enter the remains of the Ancient Stadium, once housing more than 45,000 spectators. The mind boggles at being able to line up on the track (measuring 192.27m), just as the finest athletes in the land did thousands of years ago. Nearby are the judges’ seats.

Leaving behind Olympia, head towards Kyllini port to take the ferry to the beautiful Island of Zakynthos. One hour later, you'll reach Zante Island.

Overnight stay in Zakynthos Island at the Contessina Hotel.

Athens → Corinth & Ancient Olympia → Zakynthos Island

Day 4 Zakynthos Island

After breakfast, start your semi-private Shipwreck Tour & Cruise of Zakynthos Island (08.30am - 5.30pm).

From castles and fortresses to blooming hills and sheltered bays, you will be overwhelmed from the astonishing sunsets over the vertical cliffs of the Island. Gifted with crystalline waters and verdant vegetation, Zakynthos distinguishes for its natural beauty and its hospitable atmosphere. The beach of Navagio (Shipwreck) was originally known as Agios Georgios but took this name in 1982, when the cargo ship MV Panayiotis smuggling contraband as per local rumours, run aground in that bay. The ship was abandoned and still rests buried in the limestone gravel of the beach that now bears the nickname Shipwreck.

The other highlight of the tour is the visit to the Blue Caves, a true wonder of nature. The Blue Caves consist of particular geologic formations giving life to a succession of caves along the North-West coast of the island; here you can enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear waters.

Overnight stay in Zakynthos Island at the Contessina Hotel.
