You'll take a half-day sightseeing tour that includes a visit to the Acropolis, New Acropolis Museum, and so much more! This is a great way to discover the history and meaning of the city. Continue on to Aegina, which you'll reach via ferry. Aegina is a lovely island known for the Ancient Temple of Aphaia. Be sure to visit this, as well as the stunning Cathedral Of Saint Nectarios, and the Agia Marina Beach for seaside cafes and nighttime fun! Your next stop is Hydra, an island known for its pebble beaches and beautiful architecture. Be sure to take a stroll to view some of the hilltop mansions! No motor vehicles are allowed on the island of Hydra, which will make your time here even better! One final ferry ride brings you back to Athens for your last night. Pack up your souvenirs, wipe the sand off your shoes, and head home with an abundance of new memories from your time in Greece!
