Start your morning with a sightseeing tour of Athens that visits the Parliament House on Constitution Square; the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier; and the Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. A drive along Panepistimiou Avenue gives you a view of modern Athens when you see the Catholic Cathedral, the Academy of Arts, the university, and the National Library.
Then, step back in time with a stop in the Plaka district, the old town, for your opportunity to explore on your own. After lunch on your own and some free time, depart for Zea Marina and embark M/Y Harmony G for the beginning of your Greek Islands cruise. Tonight, enjoy the Captain’s Welcome Dinner as you sail for Nafplion.
