Trip Overview

Depart from Dublin to Athens.

Arrive in the bustling Greek capital and transfer to your opulent hotel, ideally located along the Athens Riviera where you will be spending the next three nights.

Spend time unwinding and relaxing on the beautiful beach.

Rest on the sandy shores and spend the day under your beach parasol overlooking the crystal-clear water. Enjoy delicious lunch at the beach bar and if you’re up for an adventure, take part in some fun water sports activities.

Beach, Athens
Spend an exciting day in this fascinating city.

Venture into the lively city with your local guide and choose from a range of landmarks, including a visit to the Acropolis, pausing at the Parthenon and Theatre of Dionysus where the world-famous tragedies of Sophocles and Euripides were debuted. Continue to the historic neighbourhood of Plaka, home to charming boutiques, tavernas and cafés.

Athens
Witness the magnificent sunset over Cape Sounion.

From the Riviera, transfer to the southernmost tip of Attica, visiting the Temple of Poseidon with your local guide. With the imposing temple as your backdrop, experience a truly magnificent sunset over the peninsula.

Yacht
Set sail for Aegina and Poros.

You’ll have the opportunity to visit the ancient island of Aegina before arriving in Poros, one of the most famous Saronic Islands. Not only is it home to idyllic beaches, but the town’s beautiful waterfront hosts a selection of local shops, restaurants and landmarks.
