Days: 4 | From: $2,595
Day 1: Arrive in Athens
Arrive in Athens, where you are met by your Guardian Angel and transferred by private vehicle to your hotel.
Day 2: Iconic Athens
In the company of your private guide, explore the complex of monuments that is the icon of Athens — the Acropolis. See the Parthenon, and visit the new Acropolis museum. You may also be able to see the changing of the guard in Constitution Square. Afterward, walk through the ancient Plaka district; then wander the Benaki Museum to view a fascinating display of eclectic art. Drive past the Panathenaic Stadium or ask your guide to take you to Lycabettus Hill instead of the museum. Board a funicular to the top of the hill to see the little chapel of St. George and a theater.
Day 3: The Coast to Cape Sounion
Your morning is at leisure. In the afternoon, drive along the scenic coast to Cape Sounion. Visit the ruined Temple of Poseidon, sitting high on the cliffs. You may wish to be there late in the day; it is one of the best spots in Greece to watch the sunset.
Day 4: Depart Athens
Transfer privately to the airport.
