Greece Private Tour
Greece is, without a doubt, one of the most memorable and beautiful destinations you’ll ever visit in your lifetime. Thanks to its friendly people, famous food, epic coastline and island life, and its ancient influences on the modern day world, Greece is simply an abundance of good things. Whether you’re hanging out in Athens or island hopping in the Aegean Sea, there’s limitless terrain to explore. A guided Greece private tour will help you make the most of your visit.
Starting out in Athens, a private Greece tour will lead you through the birthplace of democracy. Athens can be confusing to some, with its maze-like streets and Greek lettering, but with some insider perspective, it’s one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. You can visit the Acropolis of Athens on the ancient citadel overlooking the city, where the ruins are thousands of years old but still unbelievably magnificent. The Parthenon is the most significant structure, and the new Acropolis archaeological museum will tell you all about this site.
Other ruins worth visiting include the Temple of Zeus, and the ancient Greek Agora. You can climb to the top of Lycabettus Hill (or take the gondola to the top) for an amazing 360-degree view of Athens. Be sure to explore all the various neighbourhoods as well, including Kolonaki and Exarcheia, and the popular city squares like Monastiraki and Syntagma.
From Athens, it’s easy to explore much of Mainland Greece, which should not be overlooked! There’s famous Meteora, the dramatic sandstone landscape with monasteries perched atop pillars of rock. Nearby is the Oracle of Delphi, one of the most sacred destinations in Greece. There’s Cape Sounion, not far from Athens, where you’ll find the breathtaking Temple of Poseidon. It’s a great place to watch the sun go down after a full day at the beach. If Athens is intimidating, try Thessaloniki, the second biggest city in Greece.Read More ...
