Escape from Kaiserslautern’s winter weather when you enjoy a spring like Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend in Athens!

A really warm January day in Kaiserslautern might get above freezing, but in Athens, the average daily high in January is closer to the 50’s! But a warmer climate is not the only reason to visit Athens, “The Birthplace of Democracy” was home to Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and Pericles and you will find reminders of the classical age everywhere in the lively city center. A tour of Athens will familiarize you with the citys antiquities, and your four star hotel in the city center will put you in position to make the most of your free time in “The Cradle of Western Civilization”. Your weekend will also include a cooking class at the popular Taverna Diavlos which will provide you with the recipes and experience to host your own Greek dinner parties after you return.
