A hop-on, hop-off city tour introduces you to Athens's major attractions, including the Acropolis and its crown jewel, the Parthenon—a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. The rest of your stay is set aside for free time.

  • Must-see attraction: The Acropolis Museum is filled with historically significant artifacts, including sculptures dating back to the 7th century BC. Admission is included with this deal.
  • Optional excursions: Day trip to Delphi or cruise to the islands of Hydra, Poros, and Aegina
  • Spend a night on the town: In the Psiri district, home to lively nightclubs and taverns
  • Catch a sunset: Atop Mount Lycabettus, which overlooks the city; you can hike to the top or ride a funicular

Days 5–8: Istanbul

Cut in half by the Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul straddles the continents of Europe and Asia. You'll have plenty of free time to see both sides of the city during your four days here. The half-day city tour included with this getaway includes a stop at the opulent Topkapi Palace, which was once the headquarters of the Ottoman Empire.

  • Say hello in Turkish: Merhaba
  • Must-see attraction: The Hagia Sophia, a massive Byzantine church turned Ottoman mosque turned Turkish museum
  • Optional excursions: Bosphorus cruise or dinner with Turkish belly dancing and folk show
  • Shop 'til you drop: At the Grand Bazaar, which dates back 500 years and houses more than 3,000 stalls selling carpets, gold jewelry, spices, and much more
