ATHENS

THE
DESTINATIONs

 

ATHENS

Athens is a city that seamlessly enjoys a modern, cosmopolitan culture while still preserving its heritage as an ancient city of innovation, art, and intellect. The birthplace of the Olympics, some of the relics of the BC era still stand and are available for exploration. Here you can see the ruins of the Parthenon, the Acropolis, and the ancient Agora. 

 

Shop in the lively Monastiraki Square, where vendors hawk everything from hand-carved statues to custom-made dresses, and the smell of roasting meat wafts through the air. Visit the popular Syntagma Square to witness the changing of the guard, or stroll through the quaint streets of Plaka for a true Greek experience.

SANTORINI

 

Santorini is the Greek isle of dreams. With its signature Cycladic architecture formed from ancient volcanic rock, its azure blue waters, and black sand beaches, there is no place else in the world like it. Stunning views of the Aegean Sea make Santorini the perfect backdrop for some truly sensational flying dress photos. The real magic, however, happens at sunset, when the dusk skies put on a show as bright blue and the white Mediterranean sky slowly fades to deep orange, then to a cotton candy haze before finally giving way to nightfall, leaving you feeling humbled by its beauty. Santorini is a must-see.
