Itinerary

  • You’ll meet with your UniLife trip leaders at your chosen pick up destination and head to the airport to catch your flight!
  • After arriving, we’ll head straight to the accommodation to get you checked in and settled so you can make the most of your first evening in Athens.
  • The morning is always the best time to see the main sights of Athens – take some time to head to the main points of interest or check out a museum – we recommend visiting the Agora before it shuts.
  • We’ll arrange a private walking tour for you and your group to take you through the journey Greece has been on for the last 3000 years, with a local’s perspective.  
  • In the evening, our trip leaders will be happy to arrange an activity or Bar night for you – just ask!
  • You’ll also have another chance to explore the city yourself and visit any sights or attractions that you really want to see. 
  • We recommend Mount Lycabettus if you want the best views in Athens, and you don’t mind a steep walk!
  • Join us in the evening with a special bar crawl, taking you round the coolest bars and best drinking spots in the city!

On your final day, you’ll check out of the hostel and hop on your flight back home, until next time!
