Breathtaking Beaches. Ancient Ruins. Refreshing Riviera.
4 Weeks in the Greek Riviera
Just south of Athens, we'll be basing in the Riviera region – perfect for beach explorations and laid-back local Greek life, with easy access to the big city when we need it! It's the perfect balance of cultural and historical immersion to bring you back in time. Think breezy aperitivo lunches in local seaside tavernas, the wild juxtaposition of experiencing ancient historical ruins in a modern city, and soaking in the local, colorful culture in small towns and on the iconic Greek islands – it's all here!
Ancient Ruins Reveal History in Athens
If you've got any sort of history-loving bone in your body, Athens is an absolute cannot-miss – seeing the Acropolis and Parthenon in person is truly a surreal experience – and you can almost imagine the epic performances at the Theater of Herodion Atticus! After a day spent visiting historical sites and ruins, wander through the city to check out the buzzing cafes, street markets, and unique flair of this eclectic and culturally rich city, bright with energy, mesmerising architecture, and an indescribable magic connecting you to centuries past.
Explore Colorful Streets and Cafe Life
There's nothing more delightful than an afternoon following your whim through quaint and colorful side streets, discovering a local Greek taverna or artisan shop. The journey itself truly is the destination here, as you'll find each Greek town to be a photographic wonder in itself - with colorful painted doorways, flowers blossoming over cobbled walls, and local vendors selling tasty treats everywhere you turn. Finish off at a beachside taverna to refuel with local shellfish and house vino.
Salivate over fresh Greek salad topped with local feta and olives, handmade moussaka casserole, piping hot gyros, and eggplant souvlaki. The flavor and quality of food here in Greece is second to none – (and it's one of the healthiest diets on the planet to boot!) Of course, a bit of baklava to balance things out never hurt anyone!
Island Hop to Santorini
There are nearly an endless of jaw-dropping Greek islands to choose from, but Santorini is truly a bucket list location if you dream of breathtaking sunrises and exploring picturesque blue-domed villages on one of the most iconic of islands. An overnight ferry will land you on Santorini just in time to hike up and watch the sun rise over the water, before a day of exploring this unspeakably beautiful island.
Soak In the Zen Vibes
Whether taking in the scenery by boat, hiking to the top of an island or taking a casual photo tour of the picturesque towns, you can't help but leave the Greek Riviera feeling refreshed and calm.
Take a Mineral Bath at Vouliagmeni Lake
In the heart of the Athenian Riviera, come explore this majestic volcanic crater filled with healing mineral water for a natural spa experience. The lake is constantly replenished with mineral-rich water from underground hot springs, known for healing many skin conditions and just providing an incredible chance for relaxation and rejuvenation! The thermal waters and underwater labyrinthine caves make this one of the most unique spots to visit in the Riviera.
Lounge at the Famous Astir Beach
Throw on your shades, shorts, and hit the clear turquoise waters of Astir Beach (and the numerous other beaches down the coastline!) for days of paradise in the Riviera. Astir Beach in particular is known for attracting celebrities, so d0n't be surprised if you end up doing some start-spotting. This is the place to catch mind blowing sunsets, sink your toes in the soft golden sand, and poke around the upscale boutiques in the surrounding town. It's the quintessential Greek beach experience!
