Athens & the Peloponnese

Athens and its surrounding regions are saturated with antiquity. An area of complete timelessness, just one visit can transport you back to the rich culture of Ancient Greek civilization, while to the west, the hilltop villages of the Peloponnese epitomize the authentic Greece of the past.

Birthplace of western civilization and packed with history and culture, today Athens provides the perfect combination of antiquity and modernity. The city streets themselves are a veritable museum, and sights such as the Acropolis with its iconic Parthenon will allow you to step back in time and discover Athens' incredible past.

To the west of Athens lies the Peloponnese, a unique region known for its charming authentic villages, stunning coastline and its plethora of Ancient Greek monuments. You'll be taken back through time as you step off the beaten track and discover Byzantine fortresses, churches and ancient monuments such as Epidavros or Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic Games.
