Trip Itinerary


Day 1-2
Day 1: Arrive in Athens and take the Metro towards the city center. We will meet at the nearest Metro station to the hotel for check-in (more information will be provided). From there, depending on what time each one of us arrives, we will explore the city center together. Immerse yourself in the pulse of Athens City Center, where lively markets, chic boutiques, and enticing cafes create a vibrant urban tapestry. Explore the dynamic streets, savor local flavors, and discover the modern allure of this bustling hub. Athens awaits with a perfect blend of contemporary excitement and timeless charisma.


Day 2-3
On day 2, we will visit the major archaeological sites in Athens. We will discover the majesty of the Parthenon and Acropolis – iconic symbols of ancient Greece that narrate timeless stories - and immerse ourselves in the rich history at the Acropolis Museum. Later we will stroll through the charming streets of Athens, exploring delightful areas like Plaka, where history meets modern charm. Experience the heart of Athens with our unforgettable journey.


Day 3
After taking the Metro to Pireus port, we will hop on a boat to Aegina Island! Picture this: chilling on the chill shores of Aegina on a sunny day, where the vibes are as cool as the sea breeze. Get a taste of the island's stories and soak in the easygoing atmosphere. Explore the charming Aegina Town with its lively waterfront. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the harbor and browse through local shops. Aegina is famous for its pistachios so you can indulge in locally-produced pistachio products.

Before the sun sets, we will head back to Piraeus where we'll stay for the night. Take a stroll along the waterfront promenade and explore the local tavernas and seafood restaurants.
