Athens From Above
There are several appealing ways of touring the treasured history and mystery of ancient and modern Athens, but undoubtedly the most captivating and panoramically embracing is by soaring high above Greece’s capital in a helicopter or light airplane to marvel at all of its splendor and beauty in an aerial excursion across the city’s skyline.
Imagine the unique thrill of looking down on the magnificent Acropolis and seeing views and perspectives that its architects and builders could only have dreamed about.
Other intriguing aerial spectacles, some hidden from ground view can be explored from above including the Temple of Poseidon and the imposing Panathenaic Stadium.
Volcano and Hot Springs Tour
The vibrantly multi-colored houses and tightly packed buildings clinging to the steep hillside slopes on the island of Santorini greet you like a living picture postcard, and are typical of the views and features to be found on this charming Aegean Sea enclave.
Santorini is also a community living on an active volcano which explains the rugged and unusually shaped lava rock formed landscapes. Tourists are attracted to the island to bathe in its naturally occurring yellow sulfur hot springs and also to hike up the volcano’s steaming sides of black lava rock to its summit. As dusk falls beautiful sunsets paint vivid colors across Santorini’s skies.
Delphi Full Day
Architecture, archaeology and Athenian art and artifacts are the maxim at Greece’s treasure trove city of Delphi, home of the Oracle of Apollo. Indeed the very Treasury of the Athenians temple is to be found in Delphi, and is certainly one of the countless attractions not to be missed on a full day tour of this fascinating city located at the base of imposing Mount Parnassos.
Visit the iconic stone Temple of Apollo, astonishingly constructed in the 4th century BC, and tour the ancient ruins of the Temple of Athena Pronaia featuring its prominent domed roof. The region’s prized Delphi Archeological Museum literally uncovers and displays artifacts dug from the grounds of the surrounding ruins.
