4 Days in Greece: Athens & Thessaloniki

Mar 14, 2024

Greece is heaving with historical sights. But if your holidays only consist of 4 days in Greece, we suggest splitting them across two major cities. That way you can immerse into the urban vibes and explore some fascinating places close by.   

Day One: Athens city & Excursion

Get to grips with Athenian fascination and history by taking the Athens city tour with Acropolis (skip the line). It takes 5 hours and will cover all the basics, and then some. If you start early, you will be done in the early afternoon. The rest of the day you can explore the city on your own or take the Sunset tour of Cape Sounion that begins at 17:30 and lasts four hours.

Day Two: A Day Trip from Athens

Venture to a UNESCO-listed archaeological site with the Delphi One Day tour, for traversing myth-laden landscapes and iconic monuments as you delve into one of classical Greece's wonders. Alternatively, you could embark on a journey to discover the hidden gems of the Saronic with our One Day Cruise to Poros, Aegina, and Hydra


Day Three: Thessaloniki city & Urban Vibes

On the third of your 4 days in Greece, Thessaloniki calls you to discover it with this concise 4-hour Thessaloniki Half-Day Private Tour that includes the top sites, anytime that suits you. For the rest of the day, we recommend you stroll the main streets, soak up the vibes and sample the local food scene.  


Day Four: A Day Trip from Thessaloniki

This part of the world has history linked to ancient Greece’s golden era. The Alexander the Great: Pella-Edessa-Naoussa full-day tour, starting at birthplace of Alexander the Great, combines history, waterwalls and a winery visit. Alternatively, the Full Day Meteora Trip takes you to the most impressive geological wonders in Europe, to the marvel of Meteora, a UNESCO-listed "Treasure of the World ''.
