June is ready to warm us up and inspire us for our summer break. With more than 450 tours in 21 countries (more coming soon, hold the line!), a Clio Muse Tour always stands by you, including the summer getaways.
Discover some tremendous swim-after-tour spots (part II is on the way).
1. KAPE, Sounion
Everyone knows the beauty of the sunsets in Cape Sounion (or should know). Far fewer people realize that this is one of Athens’ most impressive archaeological sites, dedicated to a god known for his moody approach to life and home to a vibrant community of soldiers, priests, and slaves that turned ancient Athens into a superpower.
Enjoy the tour and get a plunge in the always mesmerizing and Cyclades-like KAPE beach, 7km far from the archaeological site but still under Poseidon’s gaze.
2. Vaporia, Syros
Located in the heart of the Cyclades, Syros is the administrative capital of the complex the ideal choice for short or longer journeys, for history/nature and culture lovers.
Our “Syros tour: The actress Kyveli “improvises tonight” invites you to an artistic self-guided audio walking tour with the leading actress Kyveli Adrianou, showcasing original & credible stories.
Once the walk is over, get a plunge into the crystal-blue waters of Vaporia (boats, in Greek), one of the most impressive districts of the island that hosts beautiful captain houses, hanging over the rocks.
3. Praia da Morena, Lisbon
A charming maze of winding streets and colorful houses makes up a dream city carved on steep hills that gaze out on a cinematic panorama sprawling by the river Tagus. Its name: Lisbon.
Unveil its timeless atmosphere and local secrets and cool yourself in fantastic Praia da Morena, less than 15km from the city center.
4. Bogatell, Barcelona
Barcelona has forged its reputation as a hub of artistic & political advances. Miro, Gaudi, and several representatives of the Avant-Garde spring to mind; when it comes to summer, though, the Catalan capital is also appraised as one of the top European destinations to catch the sun.
Guide yourself with our tours, and swim in the lesser-known but equally (or more) beautiful, Bogatell beach that combines a lively atmosphere with tranquility and a charming natural setting.
5. Kato Gouves, Crete
The heart of the Minoan civilization was beating in Knossos. The legendary seat of King Minos, the birthplace of the antique myth of the Minotaur and Icarus, awaits to be explored and reveal its secrets in our skip-the-line and audio tour that will introduce you to the Minoan Daily Life.
After your (exciting, believe us) visit, you will surely need to cool off the summer heat and enjoy your swim on the magical island of Crete. The choices are quite a few (we had already shared some of them with you), but our suggestion is in Gouves. Swim, sunbathe, repeat, and on your way back, stop to enjoy the terrific sunset view from Ano Gouves.
Explore the world at your own pace, and swim around the globe with sunscreen on your face!
