Athens Airport to Hotel:
Upon arrival, your driver will be awaiting for you at the airport with a sign with your name on it. You will be transferred to your hotel.
Enjoy your first day at leisure in Athens city center:
Athens’ heyday was around 400 years BC, that’s when most of the classical monuments were built. During the Byzantine and Ottoman eras, the city decayed into just an insignificant little village, only to become the capital of newly-liberated Greece in 1833. Ahead of the 2004 Olympics, almost the entire infrastructure was transformed: the Metro, trams, new ring roads and viaducts have eased the pressure of the heavy traffic.
Athens is still a rather messy and chaotic place—it wouldn’t be Athens otherwise—and despite all the improvements, still retains a great deal of its oriental charm. The whole coastal stretch from Piraeus to the old Hellenikon airport has been improved with new plantings, viaducts and paths for walking. The Plaka district is becoming more and more popular and it is on the way to catching up with Psyrri, Gazi and Rouf as regards restaurants. Discover the beauties of the Anafiotika district, at the feet of the Acropolis, and visit the ancient village still housed in the midst of the city.

Only a diver knows the feeling!
So close to our dive center is the wreck of “ANNA II”, a 62m. long cargo ship that sunk in the South-East part of Mykonos on 20 July of 1995.
Ship remains in excellent condition and it is possible to enter in a small part of it. The site around the wreck is also very interesting, with a reef of a great biodiversity and a lot of big colorful sponges!
