You can’t visit Greece without experiencing the brilliance of its world-famous capital city. Ancient Athens is one of those instantly recognisable places, but for somewhere that promises so much, you’ll be pleased to hear that this city actually delivers.

A short distance from the iconic Acropolis is the open green space of the Agora. A haven of tranquillity, the location offers something of a respite from the hustle and bustle of the main part of the city. Indeed, you could spend hours in the peace and quiet as you watch the world go by. Speaking of hustle and bustle, Syntagma Square in the centre of Athens is a real hive of activity for those who prefer something a little more fast-paced.

Sun-seekers who love sailing in Greece so much that they cannot bear to be away from the sea will not be disappointed by what Athens has to offer. A number of sandy beaches are reachable just south of the city, whilst more adventurous holiday-makers might choose to soak up some rays from Athens’ highest point, Mount Lycabettus.

And, of course, you can’t complete a Greece sailing holiday without visiting the Acropolis itself. A symbol of Greek history and a remarkable architectural achievement, it cannot and should not be missed.
