Athens Luxury Yacht Charter

Athens Yacht Charter Guide

Filled with culture, this city brings together the ancient and the ultra-modern. Get a feel for modern-day Athens by wandering through the city’s streets. Grab a koulouri to nibble as you take in the – surprisingly tasteful – graffiti murals. Sip strong Greek coffee in street-side cafes with the scents of jasmine wafting from the flowers that pour from the rooftops, then glance up to see the iconic view of the Acropolis reminding you of the incredible history that you are walking amongst. An Athens yacht charter will show you Greece at its best. Take your pick from the IYC fleet and cruise around beautiful, sun-drenched islands set in impossibly blue seas in the utmost of luxury.


Best Time To Visit: March to May or September to November guarantee sunshine without the temperatures that can be restrictive in mid-summer.

Key Cruising Areas: With over six thousand islands within easy reach, a cruise from Athens leaves you spoilt for choice! Spend your days island hopping and snorkeling around beautiful coves, or find a secluded beach for a peaceful time sunbathing and paddling.

Don’t Miss: A trip to Greece wouldn’t be complete without visiting ruins, and Athens is home to some of the world’s most well-known. The Acropolis is a must-do or if you prefer to avoid the crowds hike up Lykavittos Hill where you can observe the Acropolis rising from the city as you sit with a drink at the hilltop restaurant.

Best Spots for Wining and Dining: While you can’t go wrong with a simple plate of hummus and flatbread from a pavement café, for a stylish twist on traditional fare head to Nolan for fresh, seasonal fusion dishes. Afterward, take a short walk to The Clumsies for award-winning cocktails.

Best Local Dish: A Greek salad may bring memories of slices of pale tomato and a token olive, but done right the combination of colours and flavours is something special. Nowhere does it more right than Melilotos – enjoy their exotic twist on the classic salad with a cold glass of local white wine.

Local Culture: Despite recent hard times the city is buzzing with creativity – Syngrou Avenue is home to the Onassis Cultural Centre which boasts a game-changing collection of contemporary music and theatre. While you’re there, visit the National Museum of Contemporary Art, set in a converted brewery.

Best Beach:  Astir Beach offers pristine clear waters, marble ruins, and a touch of luxury at the high-quality beach club.

IYC recommends: Escape the heat for an afternoon and head to Mount Hymettus. Just a few minutes walk into the forest you will find yourself in another world surrounded by pine trees hiding ancient monuments, deep caves, and a cacophony of birdsong. If you’re feeling adventurous you will be rewarded at the top with breathtaking views of the city. Be sure to pick up some Mount Hymettus thyme honey on your return.
