Greece Yacht Charter Attractions | Athens
With an illustrious history, Athens is a symbol of Western Civilization. Its glorious history stretches back a long time- more than 3,000 years. The city was the birthplace of Socrates, Sophocles, and Pericles. Today, Athens is a modern and lively capital city.
Few destinations in the world are comparable to Athen’s Acropolis. It reminds you of the glory of ancient Athens which was once the city’s center and functioned as a citadel on a hilltop site. The monumental rows and stunning sculptural views of the temple are an awe-inspiring sight. The Acropolis is a must-see sight during your Greece Yacht Charter Vacation.
The Acropolis Museum, which opened in 2009, is now the most-visited tourist attraction in Athens. It was designed by a Swiss architect named Bernard Tschumi. The museum is an ultra-modern combination of glass and steel structure with an airy exhibition space. The top things to see in this museum include the 6th-century-BC Moschophoros (a statue of a young man with a calf on his shoulders), the Caryatids, and the greatly controversial Parthenon Marbles. From the terrace of the museum’s cafe-restaurant, you can enjoy astounding views of the Acropolis.
The Byzantine museum offers fascinating insights into the Byzantine civilization of Greek history. This is in a 19th-century palace initially built for the Duchesse de Plaisance of France. It displays a valuable collection of Byzantine culture, such as religious art. The collection includes paintings, sculptures, textiles, icons, and mosaics.

Greece Yacht Charter Attractions | Santorini
Santorini is the most spectacular of all Greek islands. It is also well known for the cliff-top towns of Oia and Fira, which lie on the west coast and overlook the deep, azure sea-filled caldera. Santorini is mainly a tourist spot, attracting visitors with its fantastic landscape and ancient archaeological sites. However, it is also a romantic destination and attracts honeymooners, loving couples, and celebrities.
The capital of Santorini, Fira, was built with whitewashed cubic houses and terraces, little squares, winding lanes, and blue-domed churches that perch on the cliffs around 300 meters above the caldera. Fira is home to many small hotels, restaurants, apartments, souvenir shops, cafés, and jewelers. Your Greece Yacht Charter must include a visit to Fira!
