best way to get from Athens to London in 5 to 7 days?

Our cruise ends in Athens and we would like to travel from there to London over the space of about a week and want some advice on how to do that and good places to stop over/see on the way!

You can refer to our travel magazine Connexion for sample itineraries.

Your travel will be as follows –

In order to book tickets, please visit our website www.raileurope.com.au.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then Add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!
