2-day trip to the historic centre of Greek culture
This 2-day trip to Athens is a fantastic opportunity to visit the historic centre of Greek culture! Our journey starts early in the morning from your resort with one of our 50 seater luxury coaches with it’s destination the port of Zakynthos town. Here you will board the mainland ferry and in just under an hour and a half we will arrive on the mainland at the port of Killini. The journey time to the centre of the capital is around four hours and for this reason we make sure that the journey is as interesting and less tiring as possible. There will be several stops along the way for refreshments but also to enjoy some of the most interesting places that we pass through on our way to Athens, such as the Corinth Canal.
On arrival in the centre of Athens we will check into our hotel and have time to freshen up before setting out for some free time to either stroll the major monuments and historic buildings within easy walking distance or to shop in the centre of the city. Your evening can be spent as you wish, many choose to spend their evening under the shadow of the Acropolis in the charming areas of either Plaka or Monastiraki – a welcome traffic free zone with it’s realm of cobbled streets lined with tourist shops and various charming eating establishments.
The following morning has another early start with breakfast included. Our official guide will then join us on a bus tour of the major monuments before taking you on a fully guided tour of the ancient Acropolis and it’s many fascinating monuments. The early start is imperative not only to fully appreciate the ancient site itself but also the views across the whole capital before it gets too hot and to beat the crowds.
We will depart from Athens around early lunchtime in order to be able to stop for a well earned peaceful lunch. Once again several stops will be made for your comfort before we reach Killini and our return to Zakynthos. You will be back in your resorts by early evening.
