Board your overnight flight to Athens. Upon arrival, you will be met by your guide and escorted to your hotel. Enjoy free time to settle in and relax or to set out and begin exploring the city. In the morning, set out on a guided tour of Athens, where you’ll tour major sites like the Temple of Zeus, the Acropolis and Parthenon with the benefit of a personal expert in tow. Wrap up your tour with a scenic walk through the Plaka, or old town, of Athens. Spend your free afternoon taking in the charming offerings of the shops, cafes, and restaurants on offer, stopping anywhere that catches your eye for local treats or a scrumptious Greek lunch. Return to the hotel in the evening to share your afternoon experiences with your fellow travelers over a welcome dinner. ST. GEORGE LYCABETTUS.

Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Greece, specifically, May, June, September and October. Conditions are perfect between Greek Easter and mid-June, when the weather is pleasantly
warm in most places and beaches and ancient sites are relatively uncrowded Mid-June to the end of August is high season and is very hot – the beaches are crowded and the ancient sites are swarming with tour groups. Conditions are once again ideal in September until the end of October. November to February are the wettest months and it can get surprisingly cold. Snow is common on the mainland and in the mountains, and it occasionally snows in Athens. But there are also plenty of sunny days and it is quiet during this time of year. Our nature of Greece program is only best between May and October.
