How would you like to unleash your inner god or goddess when in Greece? On the 8-day Oh my Goddess!: Greece by Design Choice Touring holiday, it includes complimentary YourChoice excursions in Athens and Volos. This means you can tailor your tour to your own interests to create an odyssey of epic proportions in Greece!
Float through Aegina Island
According to ancient Greek legend, Zeus fell in love with the daughter of the river god (Asopos) and brought her to the stunning island of Aegina – so, it’s only fitting that you also embark on an adventure here to discover Aegina’s natural beauty for yourself. Highlights include exploring the capital of Aegina Town with its Neoclassical buildings, narrow alleyways and picturesque seafront promenade; and the iconic Aphea Temple that forms the ‘holy triangle’ of antiquity alongside the Parthenon and the Temple of Poseidon.
Delve into Cape Sounion
Cape Sounion is steeped in Greek history. Found on the southernmost tip of the Attica Peninsula, it was the last landmark in view for Athenian seafarers and warriors sailing away from home. Cape Sounion is also where King Aegues (the founder of Athens) threw himself into the waters that would come to be named the Aegean Sea. This area is well worth a visit, purely for its history and incredible landscapes.
Pedal through Volos
To experience the port city of Volos in a different way, hop on a guided bike tour. Being right by the coast, you’ll pedal past ancient landmarks and spectacular seascapes along panoramic trails. All this cycling means you will have worked up an appetite, so you’ll be rewarded with a lunch of local specialties at the end.
Taste Greek specialties
Lying between the Aegean Sea and Pagasetic Gulf, the Pelion Mountain range is stunning in its nature and beauty against a backdrop of sea and sand. You will visit a local farm and discover how their hard work and produce are used to create authentic, hearty dishes. An expert chef will show you the ropes so you will learn to cook some traditional local specialties which you can then enjoy afterwards!
