Itinerary

Day 1

Commissioned by Pericles and built by Pheidias, the perfectly proportioned Parthenon crowns the Acropolis, representing the Golden Age of Classical Greece. Follow the winding path to "the upper city" entrance through the Propylaea gateway. Beyond, on the highest part of the hill, stands the crowning glory of the Acropolis, the Parthenon, looking out over the graceful Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion and the Old City below. After the Acropolis, you will drive to both the old and new sections of Athens, separated by Hadrian's Arch. You will pass the statue of Lord Byron, the Corinthian Temple of Olympian Zeus and Constitution Square to the former Royal Palace. Here you will have a chance to take a photo of the Presidential Guard or Evzones in traditional uniform, as they stand watch over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Other sights on the drive include the Academy, National Gardens and the Old Marble Olympic Stadium, built in 1895 for the first modern Olympic Games. Note: The Acropolis is explored on foot and requires approximately two hours of walking. There are some 75 steps at the entrance and in certain locations the marble is uneven and slippery. We advise that you bring a bottle of water and suitable sun protection.

Planning excellence

My kids (18 & 20) and I had the most amazing 2-week trip to Greece May/June 2023. We were fortunate to have been introduced to Anthony Alagiah, who came highly recommended through a friend and colleague. I’m a researcher by nature, love planning trips and like to make very purposeful choices. What I lacked was local, expert perspective, and felt I wasn’t getting thorough, objective advice from my usual online sources. I was looking for a professional who would work with me to collaborate, share options, and guide our choices. Anthony has a network of colleagues with Antelope Travel and affiliated agencies throughout Greece who gave timely advice and knew what hotels and excursion providers could be relied on for consistent, quality experiences. Our vacation was impeccably planned from the moment we arrived. The communications were excellent not only during planning but while we were in Greece. We had a clear itinerary, with details, contact names and numbers for every step of our trip - everything from start to finish ran smoothly and we felt very well cared for. The hotel choices, tours/guides and restaurant recommendations were excellent. Overall, it was the trip of a lifetime, and the planning from start to finish exceeded our expectations.

Great trip in Athens, Mykonos, Paros, and Santorini

We did a custom trip with Antelope that included private tours of Athens, Mykonos, Paros, and Santorini for my wife and I. We had a great time. Anthony was a fantastic planner and set is up in hotels we loved, in perfect locations. He had local representatives on each of the islands, who met us and made sure we didn't have any trouble. The tours he set up for us were catered to our interests and had excellent guides. Thanks, Anthony!
