Athens day trips
Signing up to a day tour will allow you to cover a lot of territory and explore Athens in a different way. Whether it’s a wine tasting, or a photography tour, we have selected only the best cultural tours to discover modern Athenian life. The full day and half day sailing trips is the perfect way to get out on to the Aegean sea and explore the city’s coastline. Athens is one of the few cities in the world surrounded by sea and where you can access beautiful beaches within 20 minutes from the city centre. There are endless possibilities if you open your mind to the vastness of the city, as it expands and sprawls south to Sounio where you can spend the day swimming and eating at authentic seaside tavernas and at sunset, marvel at yet another of her magical temples; The Temple of Poseidon.
