You will then drive past the Athens Trilogy which includes the University of Athens, the Academy of Fine Arts of Athens, and the National Library. Your licensed guide will explain more about Athens’ history, old and new, as you look at these stately buildings.

Make your way to the archaeological site of ACROPOLIS, an UNESCO’s world heritage monument, and visit Propylae the monumental entrance to the Acropolis which blends Doric and Ionic building principles, the Temple of Athena Nike, which stands on a protruding mass of rock, protecting the gate to the citade, the Erechtheion with its porch of Maidens, and of course the PARTHENON, the monument that has been described as “harmony between material & spirit”.

POROS, the smallest of the 3 islands but probably the most beautiful one, is covered with pine and lemon trees. Enjoy a walk up to the clock tower and admire the panorama. HYDRA island is one of the favourite resorts of the international Jet-Set. The unique architecture of its houses, the pedestrian narrow streets full of boutiques, exclusive jewelry and handicrafts, attract shoppers and photographers.
