I had the best time on the Sail & Swim Greece tour! It has been the highlight of my travels. A special shout out to Maria and the crew. They were friendly, relaxed, hospitable and fun! Great people.

We thoroughly enjoyed our adventure aboard the Thalassa. The crew was stellar, the food was amazing and fresh, the seas were smooth so we had no issues with motion sickness. The ship was beautiful and clean. The only issue we encountered was the fumes from the engine room, since our cabin was adjacent to it. It was the strongest on the first night after being in port.

Nikos was an amazing, kind and fun tour leader with our best interests at heart! Joining in the fun and getting us safety to where we needed to be with no issues or disorganisation. Locations were amazing and food recommendations were always a hit! An amazing time to meet so many lovely people!

Athens - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Plaka, the old historical neighborhood of Athens
Plaka district that sits in the shadows of the city's ancient ruins

Travel Highlights

  • Nestled on an old citadel overlooking the Greek capital, Acropolis is the birthplace of democracy and the crown jewel of Athenian ancient sights. Acropolis’ most important architectural feat is the Parthenon, a magnificent temple that dates back to 5 th century BC.
  • At the foot of Acropolis, you will find Plaka, a historic neighborhood characterized by quaint cobbles alleys, neoclassical architecture and old Roman-era ruins.
  • A quiet inner-city oasis, the National Garden spans 38 acres of luscious vegetation, as well as duck ponds and a small zoo.
  • Syntagma Square, a gorgeous plaza lined with shops, cafés and neoclassical mansions, represents the heart of the city and a central meeting point for all Athenians.

Travel Tips

  • Any trip to Athens simply wouldn’t be complete without trying a bona fide Greek souvlaki. Best places to do so can be found along the Mitropoleos Street, where you can fill your belly like a true Greek god.
  • If you’re planning your visit to Athens during scorching summer months, you might want to refresh yourself by checking out one of the capital’s numerous beaches, such as Vouliagmeni and Cape Sounion.
  • Due to inflated prices and unbearably hot weather, you might want to plan your holidays in Athens outside of peak summer months (July and August). Spring, early summer and fall tend to be the most pleasant months for sightseeing, as there is still plenty of sunshine, but the temperatures tend to be more moderate.
  • The most efficient way to get around Athens is by using the metro. You can either purchase single journeys or an all-day ticket, which might be convenient if you plan on doing a lot of sightseeing.
