Your island hop adventure begins in alluring Athens, where thousands of years of history is seamlessly mixed with the fun and comfort of the 21st century. Vibrant and historic, Athens is filled with delectable restaurants, from traditional tavernas to Michelin star dining, bustling markets, welcoming bars and cafes, and picturesque parks, which sit amidst awe-inspiring ancient monuments and breathtaking vistas.
The famed Acropolis, which towers above the city and is crowned by the imposing marble Parthenon, is a must visit, and links the Athens of today with its ancient patron Athena, goddess of war and wisdom. Beautiful at any time of day, we recommend trying to visit during sunset where views across the city and simply breathtaking.
After three nights in bustling Athens, your island hop continues in the beautiful little village of Poros which is perched on Kefalonia’s south east coast. You’ll be welcomed by the Greek flag into Galtos harbour, where the bell tower of a lovely white church will catch your eye on a picturesque hillside of cypress trees and red-roofed houses. This lush, green island is filled with beautiful bays and lovely beaches, and covered in both pine and olive trees, and beautiful lemon groves, with a charming town and a harbour lined with friendly tavernas and bars, offering delicious delicacies.
American writer Henry Miller described Poros as “a joy too deep almost to be remembered”, and after your visit we’re sure you will agree.
