Athens Holidays

Athens holidays

Always vibrant, this 24-hour city is an intriguing mix of east and west, history and modernity, bustle and culture. Athens contains treasures that really should be seen at least once, and a few nights here can easily be included in our fly-drive or tailor-made holidays.

The 2004 Olympic Games meant substantial investment in Athens’ infrastructure (new airport, roads, transport systems), upgrading of museums and historical sites, and significant hotel refurbishment.

Holidays In Athens

We have selected a range of hotels, mainly within our favoured district of Makriyianni, as it is just a short walk from both the Acropolis, the splendid new Acropolis Museum and the atmospheric 19th century Plaka district, now largely pedestrianised.

Athens also has organised beaches – the nearest can be reached by tram from the centre in about half-an-hour.

Wherever you stay, a wide range of guided excursions can be had, the most popular being the half-day city tour, full day Delphi and full day Argolis (Mycenae and Epidavros). All can be pre-booked. Three and four day Classical Tours are also available. For a full list of tours please enquire or see our website.

Athens is also the embarkation point for a range of 3, 4, 7 and 14 night cruises to the Aegean islands, Turkey and Egypt - choose from popular itineraries on a larger ship taking in the most famous islands or a more intimate small ship/mega-yacht cruise visiting some of the lesser-known. A cruise can be easily tailored into a longer holiday. Please see our website or call for details.

For a brief taste of Athens (including of course the Acropolis) the city can also be visited as part of an excursion from our resort of Tolon (overnight stay possible). A few nights in the city can also be included in any holiday booked via Athens Airport e.g. to Hydra or Andros, only 90 mins and 2 hours by ferry respectively.
