Day 1
  First stop, Aegina; a popular first and last port of call for sailing charters starting and ending in Athens. Equip yourself with its fantastic pistachio nuts and make sure you visit the temple of Aphaia, as impressive as the Parthenon.

Day 2
  Built in the shape of an amphitheater on a slope, jet setting Hydra has been home to Leonard Cohen, Sophia Loren, and other celebrities. Interesting private parties, romance, grace, and history is all you'll encounter.

Day 3
  Whitewashed, neoclassical houses, smart cafés, and stylish boutiques leap out as you get closer to Spetses' tiny port of Dapia. Before you set sail to your next destination, go on a romantic trip around the island in horse-drawn carriages and admire the naval captains' grand mansion and the Venetian houses adorning its narrow cobbled streets.

Day 4
  Only minutes away from the idyllic Spetses, the Peloponnese provides an endless panorama of impressive sights for those who sail around its shores. Nafplio, the first capital of the newly born Greek state between 1823 and 1834, will mesmerize you with its colors and aromas. The charming, flowery balconies, the quaint cobblestone alleys, and the majestic neoclassical architecture will guide you through the town's beauty.   Dive into time & history and visit the 'golden' city of Mycenae, the kingdom of Agamemnon, also known as the leader of the expedition that besieged Troy.   *The private travel itineraries listed above act as suggestions only and each one can be customized around your needs and interest: adding or removing a day, bypassing a destination, taking time off to relax, or altering your accommodation and flight options.
