Spotlight on Athens & Evia

Group Tour | Spotlight 7 Days & 6 Nights Lead-in price: £1395

Evia is Greece's second largest island after Crete, but remains largely off the tourist map - despite being just a stone's throw from Athens. It is home to uncrowded beaches, major archaeological sites, historic towns and charming wineries. This new centre-based tour reveals the best of this unspoiled island, as well as giving you a day to explore Athens, including the famous Acropolis and adjoining museum. Throughout your journey, enjoy unique experiences, such as learning to make real Greek coffee. The tour also features ample downtime to spend in luxury at your five-star beachfront hotel.
