  2. Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 : Temple of Poseidon, Cape Sounio, Sounio 195 00 Greece

    Located at the southernmost tip of Attica peninsula,this is one of the best places to visit on a half-day excursion from Athens


    Οινοποιία Αλλαγιάννη - Allagiannis Winery, 27χλ. Λ.Παιανίας - Μαρκοπούλου, Μαρκόπουλο 190 03, Greece

    Two wineries to select and one to visit subject to their program. Allagiannis or Papagianakos. The vineyards are located in the Markopoulo region which since the ancient times is known for its ideal vine growing conditions. Due to the area's microclimate,

    formed by hills and wind currents from the sea, winters are mild and summers are arid but cool.​


    Paleo Faliro, Paleo Faliro, Attica

    The late Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis may be world-famous, but no one could have guessed that he would be the source of inspiration for a neighborhood kebab place in a residential suburb of Athens.

    Onassis, who was commonly called Ari or Aristos, was born in 1906 in Smyrna (now Izmir, Turkey), only to later flee with his family to Greece in 1922, during the Greco-Turkish War. Poor but with a grand vision and a great mind, he went on to become one of the richest and most successful businessmen in the world.

    When Vasilis and Panayiotis, who also own other successful eateries in town, opened their kebab restaurant Kyr-Aristos (kyr is short/slang for kyrios, which can be translated as “mister”) in spring 2013, they decided to name it after Onassis, a refugee from Smyrna, where kebab was a traditional food. Their hope was that the successful businessman would be their lucky charm. It seems as if he was.

    Located on the ground floor of an old house in Palio Faliro, a suburb about a 15-minute drive south of downtown Athens, the restaurant was an immediate success. Word quickly spread that this was best kebab joint in town, and people from all over Athens flocked to the southern suburb to taste their legendary grilled meat. Only two months after the opening, Vasilis and Panayiotis expanded to the shop next door to cope with increased demand, particularly for home delivery orders.
