Itinerary

Day 1

After collecting you from your hotel, you will head west on a comfortable coach until you reach the Corinth Canal, one of the most impressive man-made canals in the world.

Afterwards, continue the journey southwards to Epidaurus. Here, visit its Ancient Theatre, which is beautifully preserved and has surprising acoustics.

Hop back on the bus and stop briefly at Nafplio, a charming seaport town. Then, continue the tour to Mycenae, one of the oldest centers of Greek civilization and now home to one of the most famous archaeological sites.

In the afternoon, visit Olympia, an ancient Greek town and birthplace of the Olympic Games. You will spend the first night here.

Day 2

The second day of the tour starts with a visit to the archaeological site of Olympia, which accommodates breath-taking landmarks including the altar where the Olympic Torch is lit and the Stadium, where the first Olympic Games took place. Throughout the visit, your guide will reveal interesting information about it.

Leave Olympia behind and set off to Antirio, passing by Patras. Your bus will take the coastal highway to Delphi, once considered the center of the world.

Day 3

After breakfast, explore the archaeological remains of Delphi and discover one of the most important sites in Europe. Next, visit the Archaeological Museum of the city, home to countless items discovered in the excavations.

After spending a fun-filled day at Delphi, you will head to Kalambaka, a scenic village located at the feet of enormous sandstone rock formations which are crowned with the monasteries of Meteora. You will spend the third night here.

Day 4

On the last day, you will be driven to the mysterious mountain tops of Meteora bright and early to visit the stunning eleventh century-built cloisters which hang off its cliffs: Aghios Stefanos, Varlaam and Rusanu.

During the return ride to Athens, you will stop at Thermopylae to admire the Statue of King Leonidas.
