Yacht Charters Mainland Greece

The epicentre of ancient civilisation, rich in culture and cuisine, Greece's mainland is home to awe-inspiring archeological artifacts, dotted throughout its cities, next door to bustling cosmopolitan streets, contemporary culture and first-class dining delicacies.

Anchor at Piraeus, Athens' largest port, alongside the world's superyachts, disembarking from their yacht charter to mainland Greece eager to enjoy its sublime city life and historical wonders. Dine at one of Athens' many rooftop restaurants, the Parthenon on the Acropolis in full view, weave the narrow island-like streets of Anafiotika or head to the coast to live like the Athenian upper class in the oceanside suburb of Vouliagmeni.


Unlike the Greek islands, tempered by the open sea breeze, mainland Greece tends to stay warmer for longer and the only month to be avoided is July, when the summer sun in Athens is sending everyone indoors.

For this reason, most Athenians shut up shop and ferry out to the islands for the entire month of July.

Visitors to Athens during this time will find many doors closed and the city abnormally quiet.We recommend planning your luxury yacht charter to mainland Greece any month between May and September, apart from July.

As May and September are shoulder months in Greece, a booking in these months can make quite a difference to your budget. All the more for shopping, dining and exploring.

Activities & Experiences

No boat charter of mainland Greece is complete without a stop at the Western World's most iconic ancient site, the Acropolis. Whether you want to get up close on a walking tour on the very land it stands, or you'd like to watch it tower over the city from a glamorous vantage point, cocktail in hand, the Acropolis is a mainland Greece must.

The Acropolis Museum
Frequently named as one of the best museums in the world, the Acropolis Museum in Athens is a masterpiece, blending the archeological digs and findings of the ancient people with the stories and views of the Acropolis itself. Built on multiple levels, the Acropolis Museum takes visitors on a journey from the archeological dig sites below, artifacts collected from everyday people, to the ancient mythology, giant stone architecture and sculptures, up to the view of the Parthenon on the Acropolis outside.

National Archaeological Museum
Housing some of the most important artifacts from locations all around Greece, as far back as pre-history to late antiquity, the National Archaeological Museum pieces together a broad picture of life in ancient Greece.

Temple of Hephaestus
Built in 450 BC and dedicated to the ancient god of fire, Hephaestus, the Temple of Hephaestus is the best-preserved ancient temple in Greece.

The Parthenon
The Parthenon is the iconic structure on the Acropolis, built in the mid-5th century BC, dedicated to the goddess Athena, for whom the city is named. If museums and archeological tours are not of interest, you will still get to see the ancient sites. Simply walking the streets of Athens will put you on the path of ancient ruins and architecture.

Adorned with blooming bougainvillea, ancient architecture, and quaint streets, Athens is a beauty to behold, and the city is not short of vantage points from which to take in the view.

Grande Bretagne Rooftop
On the 7th floor of the luxurious Hotel Grande Bretagne is a rooftop pool with a panoramic view of Athens (complete with the Parthenon) and Lycabettus Hill. Sit cocktails on your soft chaise lounge chairs and take in the view.

Couleur Locale
See how the locals spend their lazy summer days in this glamourous bar, hidden in the gallery of Normanou Street in the bustling centre of Monastiraki. On the 3rd floor, the rooftop bar opens to a spectacular view of the Acropolis, serving cocktails and coffee all day and night long.

Beach culture runs deep throughout Greece, and there are plenty of spots on the mainland to live out the summer island lifestyle.

Astir Beach: Soak up the summer sun with Athens' VIP locals at Astir Beach, Vouliagmeni.

Varoulko Seaside: Conveniently located in Pireaus, where you've anchored your private yacht charter on mainland Greece is a fine dining delight, Varoulko Seaside, with picturesque views of the port and exquisite contemporary Greek cuisine.
