Thinking or Cruising the Greek Isles? Spend some time around Athens, too.

The Acropolis

A Day Trip for the Ages

Mycenae reveals ancient wonders as you explore the narrow walkways of the walled city before visiting Epidaurus, a village famed for its Hellenic theater.

The port of Piraeus harbors its own treasures: Within the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus stands a bronze statue of Athena, and sunset by the water is best enjoyed over local seafood at Varoulko Seaside Restaurant.

Gelato in Greece? You bet. Look no further than Le Greche, where velvety rich gelato is prepared with ingredients such as Cycladic honey and figs from Kalamata.

Step Back in Time

Hop aboard a hydrofoil from Piraeus to the island of Hydra, where you'll notice that no motor vehicles exist. Be prepared to travel by water taxis, mules and donkeys!

After strolling the cobblestone roads of Plaka, head to the fashionable Kolonaki neighborhood, which boasts upscale shops and the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture.

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Acropolis over a meal at GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar – part of your stay at Hotel Grande Bretagne, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Athens.
