SEA OF GREECE

Its maritime side is likewise worth exploring, with lovely beaches shining in the typical Mediterranean colors.
Athens is a must-visit destination of a luxury charter in Greece, boasting twenty kilometers of sand to unwind, explore, practice water sports, and bathe in the sun sampling some typical Greece dishes. Less crowded than those on the nearby Mykonos and Santorini, Vouliagmeni, Paleo Faliro, Alimos, Ellinikò and Glyfada are the five top-rated beaches of the Greek capital, affording relaxing hours after a thrilling tour of the city’s attractions.
The Acropolis, the city’s symbol that it dominates from the hill, takes on an even greater charm at sunset. Walk through Greek history across the three floors of the Acropolis Museum that houses paintings, finds, and parts of ancient buildings. The surroundings feature the Sanctuary, the Theatre of Dionysus, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, where concerts and cultural events are held to this day. Near the Parthenon are the Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike, and other sanctuaries that, in classical times, were the heart of the city.
