Overview

If Athens is exciting by day, it is even more bewitching at night. This tour centres around the port area of Athens, which truly comes to life at night. It is only when darkness falls that one can enjoy the spectacular views of the shimmering Aegean Sea and see the flurry of activity in the narrow streets of the harbors. The tranquil harbor of Mikrolimano is famous for the traditional ouzo, Greece’s national drink.

Drive to the main Greek port of Piraeus, passing by the most important points of the city. Central Athens is dotted with charming Greek taverns. A delicious dinner in a typical Greek tavern to the accompaniment of some folk dance and music, brings an enjoyable evening to an end.

Nice overall but too little time in pireus, and the taverna experience could be better if there were other people there not just our small group.... Daniel Lange
