Athens Yacht Charters

Athens is a vibrant and modern city with an incredible historic past. You could spend a month here and only scratch the surface of what there is to see. On a short visit at either the beginning or end of your Athens yacht charter, there are a few sights that you must not miss.

Number #1 on any list is, of course, the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Situated on a great rock that rises above the city, the Acropolis can – without exaggeration – be said to symbolize the birth of European civilization.

You cannot visit Athens without exploring at least some of the museums on Museum Mile – start at Syntagma Square and take in perhaps The National Archaeological Museum, which houses the world’s finest collection of art and sculpture from Ancient Greece and the Byzantine and Christian Museum for starters.

Visit the Tower of the Winds in the Forum, the elegant Roman addition to Athens. Take a well-deserved break in one of Athens’ many cafes. Then wander the narrow alleys and steep steps of Platka, a vibrant quarter with unique architecture – there’s a bit of Turkish, a dash of neo-classical and a sprinkling of Greek Islands all mixed up together - before hitting the Bazaar, Athens’ raucous and colorful street market, extending from Monastiraki up to the 19th century covered food hall.

Stop for a drink at Thissio as the setting sun lights up the Parthenon and, if you have any energy left, head for Psyrri, the heart of trendy Athens, where the bars, cafes and restaurants keep going into the early hours. An Athens boat charter allows you to experience the very best of Athens – ancient and modern.
