Athens was the center of the ancient world and relics of that period in history may still be visited today with helpful interpretation by knowledgeable guides. Book a fascinating tour to understand the importance of two of the city's most iconic destinations, the Parthenon and the Acropolis. The Parthenon dates back to between 447 and 432 B.C. and was constructed of marble in honor of the goddess Athena. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Acropolis Museum is where you'll see important artifacts including the famous Parthenon Frieze and the Erectheion Caryatids and hear the background stories behind these architectural and artistic contributions of Greek Antiquity. Consider a private tour, which enables you to experience the attractions, sights and highlights you’ve selected with dedicated transportation and an experienced local guide just for you and your party.
The bustling port city of Volos welcomes visitors to their charming waterfront lined with shops, cafes and restaurants. Take a bike out on a sunny afternoon and pedal past ancient landmarks accompanied by a guide who knows the routes and can choose the right spot for a lunch of local specialties. Learn to cook some of those traditional favorites with the help of an expert chef and the freshest of ingredients plucked from a nearby farm. You could also spend the day atop Mount Pelion gazing upon the natural splendor of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding mountain range. For a truly magical experience, spend a day strolling the cobblestone streets in the charming village of Pelion before finding your way to the green hiking trail known as Centaur's Path.
