Historical Charters Greece
The history of Greece can’t be paralleled by any other yacht charter destination. Athens- of course, a great start and the cradle of Western civilization. Nevertheless, until the 1900s, a small city with a stagnating population.
Surprisingly, it was the Bavarian King Otto (western nations insisted Greece takes a monarch, that’s how Otto landed on the Greek throne), who moved the capital from Nafplio to Athens and helped make them what they are today. The Acropolis, Ancient Agora (home of Greek Philosophy) and Roman Forum are the essential part of Greece that helps us make sense of the world we live in.
A historical yacht charter from Athens can still leave for the Cycladic islands (Delos, Mykonos, Santorini), although a more relaxing historical charter would take us to Hydra (the pirate island), Spetses and Aegina.
Historical Charters in the Ionian Sea almost always include the most mythical island in Greece – Ithaca. The home of Odysseus.
We sail in Greece ourselves, discovering little artifacts of history, feeling richer every time we come back.
