A getaway to Greece's capital combined with a drive up to the exclusive town of Porto Heli - with flights, acropolis tickets, car hire and more

Kalimera! Ever wanted to experience both sides of the Grecian coin in one swoop? Well, now's your chance. On this six or 10-night escape, you can travel back in time and experience the majesty of Ancient Greece with a stay in Athens: climb up to the Acropolis and marvel at the 3,000-year-old ruins, discover ancient treasures frozen behind glass in every museum, and take a tour of the Panathenaic stadium, where the first ever Olympic Games were held.

Then, it's time to drive through the Greek countryside in your hire car up to Porto Heli, a Peloponnese gem on Greece's glittering coast. Opt for either three or seven nights here, and explore the nearby car-free islands or simply kick back by the pool (or on the beach), before feasting the night away at local tavernas. Then, with one more drive through the countryside, you'll head back to Athens for one more night and make the most of Greece's cultural capital.

Amazing Athens & peaceful Porto Heli

Whether you’re visiting Athens for history, culture or sparkling nightlife, you won’t be disappointed. Within its ancient walls, this impressive city holds a smorgasbord of incredible sights and attractions just waiting to be discovered. By day, tick-off every monument on your must-see list, from the fifth-century hilltop Acropolis to the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the colonnaded Parthenon to the Ancient Agora. At night, be sure to make the most of the city’s vibrant bar scene as you rub shoulders with locals over super-strength cocktails in the trendy Koukaki district.

On the other side of the coin, Porto Heli fascinates with lush green scenery, golden sands and a cosmopolitan town vibe. Boats bob up an down in the aquamarine waters, while plenty of archaeological sites are within driving distance. There's an undertone of glamour here, as plenty of Athenians have their holiday homes nearby, so the town comes to life during the summer months. Combine that with organised beaches and plenty of al fresco dining, you'll soon see Porto Heli embodies the charm of many a Greek island with all the benefits of sitting on the mainland.
