Avoid going into Athens proper by boarding in Lavrion. Located on the coast just a 35-minute drive south of the Athens International Airport, getting to Lavrion is easy. Once embarked, it is just a quick hop from Lavrion to the first Greek Cycladic Island of Kea. If you have time before boarding in Lavrion, swing by nearby Cape Sounion to see the lovely ruins of the Temple of Apollo, perched high on a cliff above the ocean — a beautiful sight with white columns highlighted against the bright blue Grecian sky. — Missy Johnston, Charter Broker
A once-in-a-lifetime look into the past is at your fingertips when you walk the streets of the ancient Greeks and enrich your luxury yacht charter with tales of Grecian heroes and epic battles against the prevailing gods.
Peloponnese is a stunning region in south Greece and an incredible location to stop at during a Greek yacht charter. There you will find ancient relics and ruins amongst ancient Olympia, where the first Olympics were held in honor of Zeus.
Incredible beaches can be found in Chalkidiki and a visit to Greece’s renowned cultural capital of Thessoloniki, located in Macedonia, is vital during a luxury yacht charter in Greece. There you can explore the ancient Byzantine walls of the city and ample through many of the museums and galleries adorning the streets — from contemporary art to folklore, there is much to suit anyone’s taste. Along with its status as Greece’s cultural hub, Thessoloniki also thrives gastronomically. Restaurants abound, featuring the most incredible Grecian-style fare. Dine at Nea Diagonios for an impeccable meal with stunning sea-side views.
The pièce de résistance of your Greek luxury yacht charter will be sailing into Piraeus Greece, the port of Athens. Some would say this implausible city is the birthplace of Western civilization. Steeped in history and mysteries of the past, allow both to come to life for you as you visit the Acropolis, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Kerameikos and more. Also cosmopolitan in its own right, the Psiri district of Athens is becoming a trendy spot to visit. Dine at the little cafes that dot the streets and enjoy a night out on the town in Athens.
