Athens – The City of Temples and Tales

The jewel of all cities, Athens is the centerpiece when it comes to the woven fables of the old world. The city is a humid sprawl of ancient ruins and modern metropolis, decadent sub cultures, political strife and incredible dining. With a five star marina only a few kilometers away you can indulge in superyacht finery with swimming, snorkeling and soaking up the bliss before you hit the fascinating capital.

The cool marble and timeless grace of Athena has forever been immortalized in the Parthenon on the Acropolis. The Temple of Hephaestus is another must see site for mythology buffs, especially as it is one of the most well preserved temples in the whole of Greece. When the evening stars start to shine there is no better way to end the day then with a platter of Greek meze watching the Acropolis softly illuminated and standing proud over Athens.
