Antiquity to Byzantium

A brilliant introduction into the Golden Age of Greek civilisation hosted by expert classical historian Eugenia Alexiadou. It’s a cruise, a holiday and an education all wrapped up into one.

Calling at: Athens – Palia Epidaurus – Nafplion – Gythion – Pylos – Katakolon – Itea – Athens

Your vessel: The Motor Sailor Galileo – a beautiful blue three-master that sails under canvas whenever conditions allow. With only 26 cabins she’s small enough to get you up close and personal with even the smallest waterfront tavernas. With no more than 52 guests, who all sit down to eat together, it’s a great way to make new friends. There is no swimming pool – when it’s time to cool off the Captain heaves-to in a secluded bay and we swim in the Aegean.

Private Daily Tour to Delphi

A day of navel gazing

 The ancient site at Delphi, built around a sacred spring, is known in Greek as the ‘omphalos’ – which translates to ‘navel’. Literally ancient Greeks believed this was the centre of the world. Now a UNESCO  world heritage site, it is one of the most important archeological digs in Europe. Whilst a positive feast of cultural exhibits (see highlights) attract modern day tourists, it’s been a magnet for visitors since the 8th century BCE when scholars and statemen from all over Greece would come to consult the famous Oracle. Known as the Pythia, a priestess, she would offer prophesies in a trance-like state, believed to be due to hallucinogenic gases issuing from a chasm in the rock!  Meanwhile, back on planet earth, we end our day visiting the small, picturesque village of Arachova famous for its woven handicrafts, its colorful carpets, wine and formaela cheese, made from sheep’s milk.

Private Daily Tour Athens Riviera to Cape Sounion


The Acropolis may be the most photographed site in Greece, but the stunning temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion runs it very close. Doric in style and dating back to around 440 BCE it’s one of the major monuments to the ‘Golden Age’ of Athens. As sunset is the best time for a photo opportunity, with Homer’s ‘wine dark’ blue Argean sea in the background, the most popular time to start a visit is the afternoon. Alternatively, we do also offer it as a morning half-day trip.

The drive takes us along the marvelous “Athenian Riviera”, a scenic bit of coast that is much loved by locals, but little known to tourists. It’s well worth discovering. En route we visit the hidden Attic gem of Lake Vouliagmeni, a unique geological phenomenon, where we offer you the chance to swim in the warm crystal-clear blue waters.
