Wander along cobbled Byzantine footpaths, marvel at age-old Greek ruins, hike through arid forests, and feast on fresh fish. Along the coast, enjoy the Grecian sun as you sail between islands on a private boat or relax on one of the many celebrated beaches. Whether you are looking for delectable cuisine accented with the world’s best olive oil, fascinating historical sites, or idyllic island beaches, Greece has it all.

Once a powerful city-state, Athens was home to Plato’s Academy and Aristotle’s Lyceum. It is also often referred to as the birthplace of democracy and Western culture itself. Its heritage of the classical era is still evident in the ancient monuments dotted throughout the city. The most famous being the mighty Parthenon in the center of the Acropolis. The innovative Acropolis museum has been painstakingly designed to not disturb the archaeological excavations below. Other highlights of the area include the ancient Agora of Athens, and the Roman Forums. Outside of the city, enjoy a scenic coastal drive to Cape Sounion, where you can visit the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon. Stop in the nearby sea town of Glyfada, also known as the Hellenic Hamptons. Best reached by private helicopter, Delphi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that also makes for an enchanting day trip.


The Peloponnese peninsula was once the heart of ancient Greek civilization. Visit Nafplio, the capital of the First Hellenic Republic in the 19th century. Explore the beautifully maintained ancient city of Mycenae, a UNESCO World Heritage site and forever linked to Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. The nearby Epidaurus Theater has also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and is world-famous for its excellent condition and flawless acoustics. Perched on a hilltop near the town of Porto Heli, the luxurious Amanzoe property is the ideal base where guests can get a taste of bucolic Greek life. Visit a nearby family farm that supplies honey to the property to learn the rituals of beekeeping which have been passed down for generations. Enjoy private boating trips to visit nearby Spetses and Hydra Islands, both popular with locals but relatively unknown to tourists.

Cyclades Islands

A collection of over 220 volcanic islands in the Aegean Sea, the Cyclades are world renowned for their sheer natural beauty. Blue Parallel can create a custom land-based itinerary with stays at boutique properties and a private boat available for daily marine adventures and island hopping, or a sea-based experience with a chartered private yacht as your base. Whatever your choice, enjoy experiencing traditional island life, private wine tastings, exploring hidden beaches to name a few. Visit two of the most iconic islands: Santorini for its sunsets and dramatic views against the whitewashed towns and Mykonos for its legendary nightlife and sandy beaches. Other islands more off the beaten path, like Sifnos, Paros, Kythnos, and Anafi, are well worth visiting for their own reasons: excellent hiking, striking landscapes, traditional villages, and secluded beaches free of crowds.

Ionian Islands

Much greener than the Cyclades islands, the Ionian Islands are famous for some of the most picturesque beaches in all of Europe. Explore these enchanting islands via private catamaran with a dedicated crew ready to customize your experience. Begin on Corfu, the second largest island where the old town is a fascinating combination of the Venetian and Byzantine cultures. Sail to Paxos and Antipaxos. Paxos is known for its greenery, charming villages, and underwater caves, while Antipaxos is world-famous for its exquisite beaches. Cruise to Lefkada, a green, mountainous island with stunning white cliffs, turquoise waters, splendid beaches, and traditional villages.


Crete is home to the first European civilization, the Minoan. On this beautiful mountainous island, the largest in Greece, the Heraklion Archeological Museum’s magnificent collection will whisk you back to the Bronze Age world of the legendary King Minos. Mount your daring escape from the ancient Palace of Knossos, an architecturally complex marvel famed in mythology as the labyrinth of the Minotaur and known as Europe’s oldest city. Sail on a private boat through the turquoise waters of the Elounda Bay to the uninhabited islet of Spinalonga, where you can walk through this National Heritage Monument’s deserted 16th-century Venetian fortress and town. In Crete’s rural cobblestone villages, time seems to have stopped. Ancient Minoan paths bring hikers through beautiful natural gorges to charming towns where tradition still thrives. Amidst traditional Cretan architecture, admire local artisan weaving and savor olive oil and feta cheese crafted with old world methods.
