Acropolis & the Acropolis Museum
When you stand at the foot of the Acropolis of Athens and gaze at the architectural splendour of the Parthenon, the spirit of Ancient Greece unfolds before your eyes, emitting a vibrancy for over 2,500 years. As the undisputed center of the city for millennia, these great historical monuments atop the hill can be seen from every corner of Athens and takes a skilled guide to reveal the secrets within. Your visit takes place early in the morning before the crowds descend, and using augmented reality on an iPad, travel back in time as you discover the monuments in their original glory and the intricate engineering behind them.
Rare truffle hunting in Motsovo
In this corner of Greece, those who know Katerina Nola call her the female “Indiana Jones,” whose incredibly trained dogs track down precious truffles with vim and vigour. Alongside their skillful senses, you’ll make the most of the stunning countryside views while watching the dogs come and go, hopefully with truffles in their snouts! There is much to be learned, and the strolling continues until they have collected enough truffles for a scrumptious cookout lunch at a wooden riverside shelter.
Olive Oil Tasting and Lunch at a Local Village
Not far from Costa Navarino, you can enjoy an exceptional culinary experience at a traditional Greek village in the Peloponnese. Hidden past stone slab streets, idyllic Greek houses and olive, chestnut and walnut trees resides an olive oil connoisseur ready to share his well-kept secrets as he guides you through the steps of olive oil tasting. By the end of the day, you’ll savour the aromas of fresh olives and appreciate the smooth, bitter taste and spicy sensation of a premium olive oil. To top it off, you’ll make and bake your own bread in a wood-fired oven to complement the traditional lunch.
Follow the siren song of your heart and take to the seas! We know Greece well, and are eager to show you how to travel in pure luxury as you make your way across the isles this Autumn. Don’t hesitate any longer and you’ll be grateful you made the leap…
