I have been to Greece many times but only to the islands and my first visit to the mainland did not disappoint. Athens is a beautiful, vibrant city with so much to see and do. I decided to fly in a couple of days before my cruise to see as much of Europe’s oldest capital city as possible.
There are plenty of excellent hotels and accommodation options in Athens and the city is really well connected via metro links. I opted for an apartment that had a rooftop terrace with a fantastic view of the Acropolis which is even better at night when it illuminates the city below.
This summer, Panache Cruises' Admin Manager Lyndsay Cuddy spent a week on board Azamara Quest sailing around the Greek Islands. She was the first of the Panache Cruises team to get away and we were all extremely jealous - although as you may have seen, we all followed suit! Lyndsay has written all about her experience on board Quest on one of its first cruises back at sea.
