Explore the finest treasures of ancient Greece in the vibrant city of Athens, followed by the sun-splashed hills and sapphire waters of the island of Poros in the Aegean Sea. In Athens, visit the ruins of the Acropolis and view thousands of treasures in the spectacular Acropolis Museum, which opened in 2009. Then savor the scenes of Poros, a favorite weekend destination of Athenians that boasts pine-forested hills, sandy coves and whitewashed houses. Daytrips from Poros include Epidaurus, home to one of the best-preserved ancient theaters in Greece, still in use today. Visit the ruins of Mycenae, seat of the most powerful Greek kings from the 16th to 13th centuries B.C., including Agamemnon. Finish the trip by enjoying both the tranquility of Hydra, a car-free island capped by rugged hills, and its cosmopolitan crescent-shaped waterfront.
