Itinerary

Welcome to Athens! Once you land in the city, a local driver will help facilitate your transfer to the hotel. Check-in and enjoy the rest of the day at your discretion.

After breakfast, join our local escort for a guided sightseeing tour of Athens, this morning. Your first stops will be at the Multipurpose Panathenaic Stadium–built entirely with marble, the Columns of the Olympian Zeus, Hadrian’s Arch, the Parliament Building, and the Tombstone of the Unknown Soldier’s. Proceed to see the famous trilogy of neo-classical buildings including the Athens University, the National Library, and the Academy of Athens. Then, spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

Just after sunrise, you’ll join the bus trip out of Athens. After an estimated hour and half of driving, you’ll reach the Corinth Canal. Stop by the over 6km canal, which was built for economic purposes but has become a destination for tourist boat cruises. Continue your journey, until you reach the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the spectacular open-air theatre renowned for its incredible acoustics. Quick visit by the Nafplion Town and then to the archeological site of Mycenae and the Tomb of Agamemnon – an ancient burial site for Mycenaean kings. End your day with a trip to Olympia, where you’ll find dinner and lodging for the night.

After breakfast, the first stop of the day’s tour will be at the Olympian Archeological site hosting the Temple of the Olympian Zeus, the Ancient Olympia Stadium–home of the Olympic games–and the Archeological Museum. Your ride will take you through the beautiful landscape of Heliad and Achaia until you behold the magnificent Charilaos Trikoupis Bridge – one of the longest cable bridges in the world, connecting Rio and Antirio. The drive to your destination for the night will take you through the photogenic towns of Nafpaktos (Lepanto) and Itea until you arrive in Delphi. Enjoy your dinner and take a long rest from the day’s long trip.

Visit the archaeological site of Delphi and in Museum, housing famous statue representing “The Bronze Charioteer”. Later in the day, you’ll leave for Kalambaka, a tiny town situated at the base of Meteora, where you’ll be spending the night.

Meteora is a rocky formation in Central Greece, home to over two dozen monasteries–sitting at the cliff or in natural caves on the rock –bearing invaluable historical and religious significance. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988, the number of monasteries on the rock is one of the largest in the world. On the return trip to Athens, you’ll pass through Trikala, Lamia, and Thermopylae, beautiful cities with rich heritages. Along the way, make a pit stop at Thermopylae to admire the Bronze sculpture of King Leonidas I, and another one at the Kammena Vourla area. You’ll get to Athens later in the evening.

From your hotel in Athens, an arrangement will be made to move you to the Athens airport for your departure flight. You may take souvenirs with you as you leave but you’ll cherish the memories for life.
