When was the last time you traveled abroad? Perhaps, it was for your best friend’s destination wedding. Perhaps, it was right before the pandemic hit
The Covid-19 pandemic has made it important for individuals to decompress, rest and escape for your mental and physical well-being. What a better way to relax than to book an international vacation on a Classical Greece sightseeing trip!
For some travelers, this will be their first time traveling abroad since the Covid-19 pandemic, which might bring a lot of stress and worry seasoned vacationers are familiar with: Who’s planning this trip? What am I going to do over there? When should I visit? Where will I stay? How will I even get to point B from point A?
Fear not, our travel experts will make your international trip all the more worthwhile. To ease the tension up a bit, let’s go over the basic facts.
Currently, 1 USD is equivalent to 1 EUR. Not great news for the Euro, but a perfect opportunity to travel now!
For those who love structure and planning, here is a tentative schedule prepared for your convenience. On the other hand, for those who have spontaneity in their veins, here is a curated list on what to experience in Greece:
What to Try
Can you even say you visited Greece if you didn’t eat a gyro (yee-row)? They can be found on the menus of restaurants or tavernas or served at your local speciality shop. Gyros typically contain chicken or pork cooked rotisserie-style, and are often served with veggies, potatoes, tzatziki (tuh-zee-kee) sauce, and lemon all in a pita wrap. Some places serve it with fries too!
Second thing you must try is a frappé, which if you did not know (myself included, thank you Antigoni) was accidentally invented by a representative of Nescafé in Greece. Embrace Greece’s all-hours coffee culture and enjoy a cup whenever you can!
For stunning views and drinks, go to City Zen Rooftop Bar or Athens 360 Rooftop Bar, both of which are located in the center of Athens. Enjoy a drink or two of ouzo, all while looking at the Acropolis at night, considered to be one of the best views. This is the perfect time to highlight your trip to Greece on Instagram.
Now this may sound a bit bizarre, but plan for one of your beach days to not have an early end. After a nice day of sunbathing and strolling around the sand, let loose and unwind at beachfront clubs such as Akanthus or Bolivar.
The Classical Greece land tour includes nine nights hotel accommodations, all sightseeing activities, nine breakfasts, one lunch and six dinners, luxury bus transportation, and of course, a bilingual guide provided.
