In Athens, capital of Greece and one of the world’s oldest cities we begin our Greece teen trip! From our hotel located in the historic Plaka district, we spend two days experiencing the culture of the city by visiting the Parthenon, Acropolis and the Agora Central Market. Led by a local guide, we walk through more modern neighborhoods to Athens’ boardwalk for spectacular views of the Aegean Sea.
We head into the Peloponnesian Mountains for the adventure part of Bold Earth's Greece teen tour. Rafting the Alfios River, we enjoy the whitewater and take the time to visit ancient Greek ruins along the shore. Next, we spend two days hiking through the Loussios River past historic ruins and pristine waterfalls. At the end of our hike, we zip-line across the river and stop at the Olympia archeological site, the birth place of the Olympic Games. Stationed at an idyllic campsite for the duration of these adventures, our time in the Peloponnese is pure paradise!
From the port city of Patras, Greece we take an overnight ferry to Bari, Italy. We spend the next day hiking the “Walk of the Gods,” a spectacular hike along cliffs of Italy's Amalfi Coast. After our magnificent hike, we soak in the culture of Positano, a quaint village famous for its beaches, medieval architecture and steep streets.
