Greece Yacht Charter Guide

Discover the passionate, colorful, and intoxicating way of life that the Greeks have been perfecting for centuries.

A luxury yacht charter to the magnificent country of Greece promises idyllic scenery in spades. Sitting at the crossroads of three continents, Europe, Asia and Africa, Greece has been a mecca of civilization for millennia. You will be impressed by the sacred terrain, drenched in sun and history dating back to 270,000 B.C. The Greeks boast a unique and lively culture and warm hospitality that is all their own. Beautiful white-washed towns are the perfect backdrop for lounging on the decks of your luxury yacht, enjoying local gastronomy and drinking ouzo, a dry anise-flavored aperitif that Greeks say “makes the spirit.”

History buffs will be in awe at Greece’s myriad of ancient treasures. Home to the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the hilltop citadel and a variety of other precious fortunes, Athens is the capital of Greece and the veritable birthplace of the country. Here the tales of Grecian heroes and epic battles against the prevailing gods were born. The city also is claimed to be the birthplace of Western civilization. As you wander through the streets of antiquity, take in the history that abounds, enjoying and exploring every moment. Athens isn’t just old-world, however, as the city has grown a more cosmopolitan section. You can plan to spend a day ashore in the Psiri district of Athens, a trendy spot to shop, dine and enjoy a night on the town. Afterward, head back to the comfort of your yacht for a nightcap followed by a restful sleep in your beautifully-appointed stateroom.

Just south of Athens, you will find Poros, a small pair of islands in the Saronic Gulf. This archipelago is easily accessible from the mainland and is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enter into a world of pure perfection. Despite its size, only 31 square kilometers, Poros is home to many irresistible beaches, fascinating archeological sites — including the Sanctuary of Poseidon — and a picturesque little town that will make you feel like you’re in a storybook. The laid-back atmosphere combined with lively tavernas makes Poros a must-visit while on a luxury yacht charter to Greece. Don’t skip a stop in Peloponnese, a stunning region in south Greece and an incredible location to explore and admire. There you will find ancient relics and ruins amongst ancient Olympia, where the first Olympics were held in honor of Zeus.

Thessaloniki is widely renowned as the cultural capital of Greece. Situated in Macedonia, the city is heaving with history. Ancient Byzantine walls surround the city and protect its museums, galleries and cultural enclaves. Foodies will appreciate the abundance of incredible restaurants found in Thessaloniki, where you can indulge in fantastic cultural delights and delicacies. Featuring the most incredible Grecian-style fare, diners will be delighted by the options available. Just south of Thessaloniki is the Halkidiki region, which is famous for its incredible sweeping views and beautiful beaches. Have breakfast aboard your luxury yacht, then spend your day lazing about the sand and enjoy lively nightclubs and bars in the evening.
