Day 1: Piraeus (Athens), Greece | Embark

Athens remains an iconic destination, where the winding pathways from ancient times have transformed into modern-day roads and streets, leading visitors to the monumental gateway of the Acropolis and other archaeological sites. The city is rich in history and mythology but also embraces modernity. 
 
As you explore the back alleys, you'll come across street art and street musicians serenading you. You'll never feel lost as you are simply taking a journey to an unknown destination. You may discover lesser-known historical sites such as the Church of Agioi, located at the southeast corner of the Holy Apostles Ancient Agora, away from the crowds of tourists.
 
For a unique shopping experience, head to Plaka or Monastiraki flea market and try your hand at haggling with local vendors. You'll find an abundance of handmade wares and trinkets to peruse and purchase. Don't forget to keep an eye out for the more risqué souvenirs if you want a good laugh.
 
Apart from exploring the cradle of Western Civilization, visitors can also explore the port of Piraeus, the largest port in Greece and one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean. Centuries of history have transformed this seaside town from a wartime fortress to a major shipping and transportation center.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
