Athens

One night / two days day Athens
Depart early morning from the port of Zakynthos with the ferryboat to Killini. On arrival drive along the Peloponnesian coastline via Patra and the first will be a rest stop at Egio. Continue on to Corinth where the coach will cross over the Corinth Canal and stop for a photo-stop. The canal is an amazing piece of engineering, originally thought up by the King of Corinth and by Alexander the Great, but it was Nero who actually turned the first soil with a golden spade. The works were abandoned by Nero due to rioting in Rome and were never finished until the late 18th century by a French Engineering company.Arrive in Athens and check into the hotel. Here you have the opportunity of lazing by the pool or going for a walk in the Plaka. In the evening the guide will have arranged an optional dinner for you with tasty Greek mezes and traditional Greek food.

The following morning, early departure for the sightseeing of Athens with a professional guide. The coach will first take you around the Athens centre, viewing the University of Athens, the Library and the Academy all built in neo classic style. Then on to the Parthenon where you will spend one and half-hours with the guide seeing the wonders of ancient Greece. Time will be given for photographs and browsing alone. After the Parthenon, the coach will then take you to the Olympic stadium which was rebuilt for the revival of the Olympic Games in 1896, from there, on to the Royal Palace to see the changing of the guards. These are the Royal Guards wearing the traditional costume! Then free time on your own to browse through the Plaka and Monasteraki areas to shop and have lunch.
After lunch drive directly back to Killini again via Patra for the ferryboat back to Zakynthos.
