Get Lost in the Sun-Bleached Ancient Ruins of Athens, Greece (Europe) for Five Days & Four Nights at the Athens Gate Hotel for Two, Including a Private Half-Day Sightseeing Tour of Athens (Land Only)

Past and present merge in Athens, the capital of Greece and ancient capital of the world, a metropolis that can be likened to an open-air museum, with iconic monuments, incredible museums, and ancient landmarks everywhere you turn. The magnificent Acropolis stands tall over the city, the Parthenon epitomizes the glory of Greece, the Erechteion - a former temple built on the most sacred part of the Acropolis - today houses the Caryatids, six larger-than-life maiden columns. You'll get a true taste of heartfelt Greek hospitality and modern luxury at The Athens Gate Hotel, ideally located in the historic district.

From the moment you step inside The Athens Gate Hotel until the moment you leave, you will enjoy the friendly and efficient service of the hotel personnel. With their personalized service, imbued with the Greek traditional value of hospitality, your stay will run smoothly, and you'll experience the luxury and the comforting feeling of being home. Make sure to check out the view of the city from the hotel’s roof top as it is known as possibly the best in the whole of Athens. Located in the historic district of Athens, you will have easy access to many of Athens' famous sites. The hotel sits directly opposite the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the Gate which was constructed by the Athenians to welcome the Roman emperor Adrianos (Hadrian). You will also only be 500 meters from the Acropolis and 100 meters from the New Acropolis Museum and the National Museum of Contemporary Art. Constitution Square (Syntagma), and the commercial center of Athens are also only 500 meters away.

Your half-day private sightseeing tour of Athens perfectly combines the city’s highlights: the city center, the Acropolis and the New Acropolis museum. Your VIP licensed guide will meet you at your hotel and start with an introduction about the city and its history. A luxury car will transfer you through Syntagma Square and see Parliament, and guards in front of the monument of the Unknown Soldier. Stop in front of the Panathenaic Stadium then drive up to Lycabettus Hill and enjoy a panoramic view of Athens. Continue downhill to University Street and see the Academy, University and National Library. On the way to the Acropolis see the National Gardens and the surviving columns of the Zeus Temple and Hadrian’s Arch. You will then be dropped off at the foot of the Acropolis.

Alaska's Majestic Frontier

Alaska

Cruise Past Fishing Towns and Majestic Fjords Aboard Royal Caribbean International to Alaska for Seven Nights in a Veranda Stateroom for Two

Drink in the splendor of the seas as you make your way along the Alaskan coast, in and out of passages, past fjords, and miles and miles of wilderness. From the breathtaking sights of Hubbard Glacier to the pioneering spirit of Juneau, the gold-rush spirit of Skagway and the totem poles of Ketchikan, Royal Caribbean's Alaska is as rustic and romantic as one could ever imagine. And with ports such as Seattle and Victoria, British Columbia, Royal Caribbean showcases the quintessential character of the Pacific Northwest.

When you cruise with Royal Caribbean International, you're not just boarding another cruise ship - you're entering a sensational world of bold discoveries, customized adventures, multi-cultural exploration, dazzling entertainment, incredible culinary creations, and uniquely personalized service. There's a reason Royal Caribbean International has been recognized as the Best Cruise Line Overall and the Best Cruise Line in the Caribbean by Travel Weekly readers for 14 years. No matter where you are - the pool, the dining room, the spa or your room - get ready to be wowed!

Quaint fishing villages and cosmopolitan cities combine for a unique glimpse into Alaska's character and culture. View the most dramatic Alaskan glaciers at the end of the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord. The fever of the gold rush took over Skagway years ago, and still embracing its past, today the city has managed to preserve its frontier spirit with saloons and dance-hall venues. Ketchikan is known for a few things as well: being the jumping-off point for seaplane excursions into the Misty Fjords National Monument and its 2.2 million acres of wilderness nirvana, as well as being the ancestral home of the Tlingit tribe. You will make your way past Hubbard Glacier, nicknamed the "Galloping Glacier" because of its fast pace – faster than almost any other glacier on the continent. In 1986, Hubbard Glacier moved an average of just under 5.5 feet per hour. From the pristine forests and the majestic mountains of the United States, to the unspoiled Alaskan wilderness, this is sure to be an unforgettable cruise.

Amsterdam boasts numerous charms, from its beautiful canals flanked by elegant 17th century merchant houses, to its collection of fascinating and world-famous museums, and the hundreds of festivals that mark space on the calendars of locals and visitors alike.

All major sights and attractions are within walking distance. Some of the world's finest art collections reside in Amsterdam, alongside trend-setting design shops.

'Amsterdammers' are more than willing to give you directions, most likely in your mother tongue. And with its myriad of festivals each year, including the Tangomagia festival, HISWA Amsterdam Boat Show, Imagine Fantastic Film Festival, and the Holland Festival (just to name a few!), Amsterdam's reputation as a City of Festivals is justly deserved.

Spend some time dedicated to one of Amsterdam's quintessential highlights – Heineken beer – with a visit to the Heineken Experience. Discover the fascinating world of Heineken and learn about the brewing process as you explore the history and traditions of Holland's iconic beer on this self-guided tour. The original Heineken brewery from 1867 until 1988, the Heineken Experience today is more than a museum – it's an interactive venue where you'll learn the extraordinary story behind this remarkable, world-famous brand. Experience what it's like to be a beer bottle in the 'Brew You Ride' and create a personalized beer bottle with your name on it! End your tour with two beers - proost!

This excursion to a range of locations in Nuenen that inspired the artist will give you insight into Vincent's life, as he was very productive in this village, completing more than 500 paintings and drawings within a period of just two years. One of these was The Potato Eaters, now one of his most famous works. During your time in Nuenen you'll visit the Vincentre Museum, explore some of the 23 'Van Gogh locations' by bike or on foot and soak up the renowned Brabant hospitality at the numerous shops and cafes. Then explore the world's largest collection of his works at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, including such famed works as The Bedroom and several self-portraits. As you study his masterpieces, drawings and letters, you'll discover the love, anxiety, hope and suffering behind his art, and track the creative development and continuous search of an artist who was constantly trying to improve himself.
