KINETA

Kineta is a close to Athens seaside resort, surrounded by pine trees and it is a beloved destination of Athenians for their summer vacations or even for daily escapes to the beach. In Kineta there are two main beaches (which are connected by foot) , in which there are several beach bars, restaurants and cafes. In the Old National road from Athens to Corinth which goes through Kineta you can find several grocery stores, bakeries, grill houses and convenient stores. Agioi Theodoroi is the nearby town, about 9 min driving. You can find a nice boardwalk with a lot of choices in restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, banks etc.

ATHENS

Although there are plenty of things to see and do in Athens, with the right planning you can have a pretty good taste of the Greek capital in one day. Athens city center is walkable. Arrive at Acropolis Metro station and head to the hill, where the entrance of the Acropolis is located ( the adult ticket costs 20 euros). If you feel like it, after your visit in Acropolis you can visit the newly built and awarded Acropolis Museum (5 euros entrance). You can then feel free to get lost on Plaka and Anafiotika, the picturesque neighbourhood below the Acropolis hill, built from islanders about 2 centuries ago. There are plenty of restaurants and souvenir shops in this area, mostly touristic. Head to Monastiraki, Athens Flea Market, which is full of bars and traditional taverns.Follow Ermou street, the main commercial street of Athens. If you feel like having an afternoon cocktail, turn left until you find Kolokotroni street, where Athens most hip bars are. Finally head to the Syntagma square where the Greek parliament stands to see the change of guards. Please feel free to ask us for more tips!

 MYCENAE- EPIDAURUS- NAFPLIO

In this wonderful day trip to the Northeastern Peloponese you could have a taste of a 4000 years span of ancient history. Mycenae is about a 50 min drive from Kineta and is the perfect place to start your trip. As it is described in Homer’s Iliad, Mycenae was the seat of king Agamemnon, who declared the Trojan war. With the entrance fee of 6 euros, you can admire the Lion’s gate, the citadel and the museum. Less than a 30 minute drive, locates the picturesque town of Nafplio. Stroll through this beautiful town, arguably one of the most iconic in Greece. There are dozens of taverns, gelaterias and souvenir shops to choose from. After your meal head towards the archeological site of Epidaurus. The entrance fee is 12 euros and it closes at 8 o clock. Visit Asklipieion at Epidaurus, an UNESCO monument, and a major healing place of the ancient world. Last but not least, the ancient theater, the most perfectly designed ancient theatre in the world in terms of acoustiscs and architecture.

HYDRA- POROS- EGINA CRUISE

Another wonderful idea is to go on a one day cruise to the Saronic gulf. Everyday there are cruises to Hydra, Poros and Aegina from Piraeus port. Lunch is served on board and you have plenty of time to enjoy all these historic islands.

 

ANCIENT CORINTH- CORINTH CANAL

Corith is only a 25 min drive from Kineta. Ancient greek and Roman monuments blend naturally together. It is the place where Apostole Paul spread the word of Christianity as is described on Corinthians speech. The temples and the Roman agora of this ancient city are astonishing and the archeological museum totally worth it. On your way back do not miss the Corinth canal, one of the most important engineering projects of the country!
