Delight in the juxtaposition of the ancient and modern in Greece. Ascend the Acropolis and gaze upon the Parthenon, shielded by its perch from the sounds of the city below. Then leave the city behind to experience the slower pace of island life on Poros, one of the idyllic Saronic Islands. Stroll by the sparkling sea, and watch the day unfold. See freshly caught octopus hanging to dry by a waterfront taverna; listen to the banter from the kafenion, the neighborhood coffee shop; and join the fun at a festive Greek night. Poros, opposite the storied Peloponnese, gives you access to the best of Greece. Explore the 2,400-year-old theater in Epidaurus and the fascinating ruins of Mycenae. Visit the island of Hydra, and pretty Nafplio, the country’s first capital. Enjoy first-class accommodations during two nights in Athens and five nights on Poros. The extensive meal plan features wine with dinner.
