What to know when sailing in Athens
We recommend sailing in Greece for at least one week so you can truly experience everything the beautiful Mediterranean sea has to offer. From the history and culture of Athens to the gorgeous Ionian sea, Dodecanese, and Cyclades islands, there is so much to do and see that you could sail the sea for a month and never want your vacation to end. Book your weekly rental and immerse yourself in the heart of Greece for a true European boating experience.
Keep in mind that the best time of year to visit Greece is late April through the month of June or mid-to-late September so you can avoid the tourist crowds in July and August. Athens is an incredibly convenient area to sail from due to its proximity to one of Greece’s most popular airports, located right in the capital city. When booking your yacht charter, you can even add transportation to and from the port, making vacation planning even easier. When you fly into Athens, we recommend giving yourself at least a day or two before or after you begin sailing to get to know the city and take advantage of the historic sites and gorgeous views from one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world.
One week Athens boating itinerary
If you’re planning a trip on a yacht charter in Greece for one week or more, it’s important to keep in mind a bucket list of must-do items during your sailing vacation. Here is an example of what you can see and do by land and sea when renting a boat for a week starting in Athens.
Embark on your yacht charter to the beautiful island of Aegina, where you can take a stroll to enjoy gorgeous views and stock up on delicious fare from the town’s marketplaces. Visit Aegina’s temple of Aphaia, one of the most breathtaking sanctuary ruins that dates back to 500 B.C. From Aegina, set course for Poros for clear, tranquil waters and quaint, small-town hospitality. By the next day you’ll sail back through Poros lagoon and reach Epidavros, where you can see some more historic sites like the sanctuary of Asklepios and even ancient burial monuments. Next, visit Korfos for local seafood and swimming, and then sail to Agistri for an authentic taste of Greek life, with cobbled streets, quiet beaches, and a beautiful countryside setting. Head back to Aegina on your last day to visit the town’s other attractions, dine on specialty cuisine, or even revisit some of your favorite sites. Whatever you get up to on your Athens sailing adventure, we’re sure you’ll find what you came for: beauty, relaxation, and fun.
