Athens - Temple of Olympian Zeus

Athens is regarded as the historical capital of Europe. Over the years Athens was occupied by numerous conquerors contributing to the many beautiful monuments gracing this fascinating city. Since 1834 the city is known as the modern Greek state and in the past two centuries it has evolved into an attractive modern metropolis with matchless charisma. 

The historic centre of Athens has been transformed into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone, covering the most important archeological sites, reconstructing, to a large degree, the ancient landscape of the town. Sites not to miss visiting the city during your Athens yacht vacation include the Hadrian’s Arch, which represents a symbolic entrance to the city or the temple of Olympian Zeus. Strolling along the Dionysou Areopaghitou Street you will come across the ancient Theatre of Dionysos featuring most of the works by Sophocles, Euripides, Aeschylus and Aristophanes. Continuing your walk, you will come across the ruins of the Asklepieion and the Stoa of Eumenes, as well as the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. From here you should most definitely climb up to the sacred rock of the Acropolis, where some of the world’s most important masterpieces of architecture and art can be found. The most famous is the Parthenon temple, followed by Propylaea, the temple of the Athene Nike and the Erechtheion. There is also the Acropolis Museum situated only 300m away, representing one of the most important contemporary works of architecture in Athens. Its exhibition contains 4,000 priceless finds from the Acropolis monuments.

Plaka neighbourhood, located on the eastern side of the Acropolis, is the historic centre of the town full of picturesque cafés, bars, tavernas and restaurants as well as small souvenir shops selling traditional Greek products. Enjoy a leisurely walk through the narrow winding streets lined with houses and mansions from the time of the Turkish occupation or the Neoclassical period and get transported back in time! This part of town is also home to the Lysikrates Monument, Hadrian’s library or the Roman Agora with the renowned Tower of the Winds. There are numerous museums including Folk Art, Popular Musical Instruments, Frysira Art Gallery and many others. 

For sport lovers the Panathenaikon (Kallimarmaro) Stadium, home to the first Olympic Games in the modern history (1896), is a must-visit. 

For those looking to do some shopping on their Athens yacht holiday in Greece, the commercial neighbourhood is the place to be. Starting with the Ermou Street, this area features more than 2,500 shops. On the western side of this area is the Athinas Street, reminiscent of Middle Eastern food markets. For luxury goods and fine boutiques, head to the Kolonaki, where you will find numerous world-renowned brands and shops selling high couture. There are also plenty of modern, high-end restaurants, bars and cafés often visited by the crème de la crème. Stroll the lovely streets of this neighbourhood enjoying the beautiful art déco, art nouveau and antebellum architecture. 

In addition to admiring the unique view of this ancient city from aboard your chosen Athens charter yacht, there are plenty of great places in the city itself to enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views. If you are after a relaxing walk, take a stroll along the seaside or for nightlife entertainment choose one of the many nightclubs located around the harbour.
