In the same area, the much-discussed Calatrava construction station, known as Oculus, a distinctive architectural building dominated by the color white, looms in the same area. Impressive and futuristic, both inside and out, it is to date the most expensive station in the world, at a cost of $4 billion.

It is the perfect time for a stop at Brookfield shopping centre, filled with branded stores such as Burberry, Gucci, Luis Vuitton. There, we will have free time to rest, shop, relax with a meal or drink at one of the restaurants or cafes while enjoying the very beautiful views from this place!

Our third tour starts from Battery Park where the Statue of Liberty, a landmark that is synonymous with New York City, begins to emerge. Immediately afterwards, we will have the opportunity to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and take the most spectacular photos! The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States (1883) and connects the New York boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by crossing over the East River. Since its opening it has been a symbol of New York City and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972.

After the cruise we will visit Hudson Yards, the newly built neighborhood of Manhattan, which is straight out of a science fiction movie! Spread over 14 acres it includes dozens of shops, gardens, groves, upscale stores, celebrity chef restaurants and the impressive climbing project The Vessel which resembles a giant beehive. Then depending on the number of participants we will return to our hotel by foot or coach and have time to prepare for our evening out.

After a short stop for photos we head back to our hotel, having had a good first taste of spectacular California.


9th day: Los Angeles - Tour 

Today's tour is full of surprises. Los Angeles is not a city like the ones you are used to seeing. It is a city of many cities, a giant city between great mountains and the Pacific Ocean. On our tour, we'll admire the Music Center and the Disney Concert Hall in downtown. In Hollywood, we will see the Chinese Theatre where movie premieres are presented and where well-known entertainment artists have left their footprints. You will also feel like a star when you walk down the sidewalk where the bronze stars of the "walk of fame" are, and the Dolby Theater (formerly the Kodak Theater) where the famous Academy Awards ceremony is now held every year. Then we will see Beverly Hills, we will pass by the famous Rodeo Drive, with the most expensive shops in the world! Some of them you can only get into if you have an appointment. We will still see the beautiful beaches of the city and gaze at Malibu. One of the most notable places we will visit is the Griffith Observatory, where we will have the opportunity to take the best pictures with a view of Los Angeles and of course the Hollywood sign, a trademark of the city.


10th day: Los Angeles - (optional Universal Studios Hollywood)

We have the whole day at our disposal to spend it with the choice that suits us best. One of them is Universal's movie studios, one of the top attractions in Los Angeles. A place that offers nothing but fun, full of sets from the most famous movies, it thrills adults and children alike, while actors dressed in the best costumes make the experience magical. Trains from the greatest movies of all time, including Transformers, Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Mummy and Fast and Furious, await you. But what you can't miss is the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey roller coaster, which was voted the best in the park in 2017. You'll pass through the castle gates and down the corridors of Hogwarts to Headmaster Dumbledore's office. A special train will take us on a guided tour of the filming locations for TV and film movies and we will see sets and tricks that evoke the wonder of the 7th Art. The tour guide will lead the tour so that you don't miss anything. 

Next to Universal Studios is City Walk, a bustling area ideal for dining and shopping, while you can watch a film in the cinema and enjoy a drink to the sound of live music.


11th day: Los Angeles - San Diego (optional)

Early booking offer: one day trip to San Diego only 65€ from 140€

Free day. We recommend an excursion to San Diego, the southernmost city in California, near the Mexican border. We will follow the beautiful coastal route, starting in Long Beach, where we will see the old Queen Mary I Superyacht, now converted into a wedding reception venue, hotel and of course a museum. We continue past Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, and San Clemente. Along the way we will see how new settlements are being created as the area continues to evolve. We will arrive in San Diego, the Golden City, at the foot of Mount Palomar, which is becoming an alternative Silicon Valley. We arrive at the San Diego Harbor where we will see Seaport Village an area that has been developed with shops, cafes and restaurants. From there, after crossing the big bridge, from where we will see part of the city's Naval Station, we will arrive at Coronado Island, a beautiful residential area, where the famous old wooden Del Coronado Hotel, which we have seen in many movies, is located. The beauty cannot be described in words. In the evening we return to Los Angeles. Again, if none of the above suggestions excite you, wander around Los Angeles doing your last minute shopping, or head to the beach to relax in front of the ocean. Either way, the day is yours!


12th - 13th day : Los Angeles - Athens

Last day of our trip. Transfer and flight to Athens with a stopover. Flooded by so much we have experienced on our trip and with a sweet nostalgia for what we left behind, we wish to quickly repeat this magical trip or one like it.
