My family has always wanted to visit Ireland to know our heritage better. We chose Focus on Ireland with Insight Vacations for a number of reasons. First, the extra legroom on the luxury motor coach would provide more comfort for my parents. Also, the itinerary hits much of southern Ireland’s biggest highlights within 7 days with many Relaxed Starts. Relaxed Starts are mornings where you don’t have to wake up extra early in the morning.
Greece has been one of my bucket list destinations for a very long time. My trip to Greece on the Greek Island Hopper with Trafalgar tour, started with our arrival in Athens, Greece. There we stayed in the Radisson Blu Park hotel for three nights. I flew in a day early to get used to the time change and explore more of the city. The weather was so hot but nothing kept us from going out. Some tips you should know before traveling to Greece is to bring a hat, sunblock, light clothes, comfortable shoes, and water bottles. Our hotel was a 30-minute walk to the Athens Plaka shopping center, and approximately 20 minutes to the flea market, but you could use a taxi if you’d like.
