This private luxury tour of Greece is perfect for adventurous travelers interested in combining cultural and active touring with luxurious accommodation and top expert guides. Experience the capital city of Athens and the ancient ruins of Delphi combined with some of the country’s less-visited scenic islands, Paros and Naxos.

Begin in Athens, the capital of Greece and a showcase of ancient civilization. During private touring with your expert guide, visit the city’s top sights such as the breathtaking Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of ancient ruins (including the Parthenon), and the wonderful Acropolis Museum. Also explore the Agora, local markets, and the charming, taverna-lined Plaka neighborhood. Depending on your interests, other options include riding the funicular up Mount Lycabettus or visiting specialty museums such as the Benaki Museum, Museum of Cycladic Art, National Museum of Contemporary Art and Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange an excursion along the beautiful coast to Cape Sounion to watch the sunset at the ancient Temple of Poseidon. There will also be time to enjoy the city’s excellent restaurants and lively neighborhoods.

One day, if desired, enjoy a full-day private excursion to Delphi, the spectacular ruins of an ancient religious complex that the ancient Greeks believed to be the center of the world. Set on the steep slopes of Mount Parnassus, the archaeological zone overlooks a deep gorge and is one of the most impressive ancient sites in Greece.

Next, take the express ferry to the beautiful island of Paros. During private touring, explore the island’s traditional whitewashed villages and most picturesque towns, including Parikia, Lefkes and Naoussa. Visit ancient marble quarries, historic churches, castles and museums. One day, take a private cruise on a catamaran, visit neighboring islands, including Antiparos, and enjoy leisure time to swim and relax on the island’s famously beautiful beaches.

Continue by ferry to Naxos, the largest island of the Cyclades Islands and a former cultural center of the ancient Mediterranean world. From ancient ruins to Byzantine architecture and Venetian mansions, Naxos offers thousands of years of history amidst verdant landscapes and azure waters. With a private guide, learn about the history, archaeology and folklore of the area and visit picturesque villages, ancient temples and local museums. Enjoy exploring tavernas, galleries and boutiques tucked away in winding cobblestone streets and, one day, visit a traditional ceramics workshop and an olive press. Enjoy leisure time on beautiful beaches and, if desired, take a scenic hike or bike ride through green hills, olive groves and quaint towns. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional activities including specialty culinary touring, a private cooking class, scuba diving, horseback riding and private yacht charters.

Conclude with time to relax along the Athens Riviera at the Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens. Alternatively, we can arrange an overnight back in the city.
