Description

Meet our field expert at Syntagma Square and head down Panepistimiou Street to marvel the stunning architecture of its neoclassical buildings and their connection with King Otto. Along the way we will encounter the Catholic Church of Saint Denis, the Ophthalmic Hospital -a structure with a distinctly Byzantine flavor- and the neoclassical Athenian Trilogy -the University of Athens, the Academy of Athens and the National Library- before ending up to Klathmonos Square and the Museum of the City of Athens.

Dedicated to the city of Athens, the museum is particularly focused on presenting the city’s modern history, from 1834 onwards. Having served as the first temporary residence of Greece’s first royal couple, the museum showcases a wealth of material culture objects from the 19th century and a range of rooms furnished and decorated in authentic 19th century aristocracy style, offering a rare glimpse into a fascinating period of modern Greek history.

After a tour of the museum’s collections, guests can enjoy a taste of aristocratic life in the early years of the modern Greek state. A specially catered meal will be served in one of the museum’s accurately reproduced period dining rooms, and guests will enjoy their meal at an early 20th century dining table set with antique tableware. In the evenings when museum opens its doors exclusively for our guests, dinner versions of this exclusive feature are accompanied by live violin music to further enhance the 19th century atmosphere. As a special treat for younger guests, the museum also offers children (up to 15 years of age) a fantastic opportunity to dress up in period costumes—child-sized reproductions of clothes that once belonged to the Greek royal family!

Overwhelmingly....YES!

We realize our trip was only as enjoyable as the many layers of details set up prior to our departure. We had many many transfers on our recent family trip to Greece and every driver was on time, friendly, professional in dress and demeanor, and proficient in English. Our local guides were knowledgeable and informative....and willing to tailor our excursions to our personal interests and time line. We could not have been happier with our hotel selections. Our Villa in Naxos was a dream come-true in every-way. Beautiful secure, well maintained Villa and surrounding grounds. The location provided privacy and proximity to activities, and restaurants with a staff (that became like family) on site-24/7. A overwhelmingly positive experience!!
