Peloponnese Excursion
In general, the tour was good. The guide provided excellent information on the sites visited. The times of excursion, were insufficient in the archaeological sites and in the museums and I believe that it was due to that time of the excursion was used to take us to shopping tour.

Excursion and Cycle
Javier, I wanted to thank you for the quality of the excursions and circuits, and your attention with us. The truth is that everything very well. As a constructive suggestion, you may have missed at the time of the explanations, some part of it more focused on children.

All right
Reserve a circuit in Peloponnese and Delphi. There was no incident. All correct, but to keep in mind that the hotels are correct but very simple, and in our case the guide could have given more explanations both in the coach and in the fields.

Excursion Itinerary: Olympia & Delphi From Athens

FROM ATHENS TO OLYMPIA - CRADLE OF THE OLYMPIC GAMES
1
FROM ATHENS TO OLYMPIA - CRADLE OF THE OLYMPIC GAMES

Today you will head towards the Corinth Canal, where you will stop briefly to marvel at this famous channel that connects the Aegean with the Ionian Sea and take some photos. Corinth Canal is an impressive engineering feat as ships do not have to sail more than 400 km around the Peloponnese peninsula to reach the Ionian Sea, like they used to do before its construction.

Past hills and mountains, you will reach Epidaurus, where you will be immersed in the culture of the 4th century BC. Its world famous Theater is the best preserved ancient theater in Greece. Its construction was not planned as a separate site but was part of the therapeutic and healing process, achieved through the theatrical performances.  Known for its acoustics, it has a capacity of about 16,000 spectators and is still in use, especially during the summer, where notable performances are staged by native and international artists.

Then, you will briefly stop at the first capital of Greece, Nauplion, and continuing your journey back in time, you will visit the Acropolis of Mycenae, the center of the Mycenaean civilization.  In the enclosure you will see its cyclopean walls, the Lions Gate, various tombs of ancient kings, the Palace, the Cistern and its 99 steps underground, the Tomb of Egisto and the tomb of Clytemnestre, while next to the Acropolis you will see the Tomb, attributed to the King Agamemnon.

In the afternoon you will travel through central Peloponnese and arrive in the city of Olympia in the early evening.  You will check in at your hotel, have dinner and rest.

Greca Tip: You can put the acoustics of the Epidaurus theater to the test and in Mycenae, you can enjoy the incredible view from its Acropolis.                       

FROM OLYMPIA TO THE NAVEL OF THE WORLD - DELPHI

FROM OLYMPIA TO THE NAVEL OF THE WORLD - DELPHI

In the morning you will visit the site of the ancient Olympic stadium, where the first games were held at around 776 BC. The importance of these games was widely accepted, given the extensive participation of the Greek cities, which suspended hostilities throughout the celebrations. The Olympiad was recognized as the only chronological event all over Greece and, basically, represented the period of four years between two consecutive events.

Olympia was also the most important sanctuary of Ancient Greece, a place to worship Zeus, the first among the gods. The gigantic gold and ivory sculpture crafted by Phidias was considered one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

After your visit to the Museum of Olympia, you will continue your journey, across the suspension bridge of Rio - Antirion, a modern engineering wonder, until you reach your destination.

Upon your arrival at Delphi you will have dinner and a well-deserved rest.

Greca Tip: In the evening you can go in search of the traditional character of nearby Arachova and enjoy a drink in a stylish café or a local kafeneio (coffee shop).

FROM THE ORACLE TO ATTICA - THE RETURN

FROM THE ORACLE TO ATTICA - THE RETURN

In the morning and after a wholesome breakfast, you will visit Delphi, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the center or navel of the ancient world and host to the renowned Oracle, the counsellor of kings and pilgrims alike.

You will also visit the museum which houses as a special exhibit the "bronze charioteer", a masterpiece of Greek antiquity.  This statue was discovered in the Temple of Apollo and erected to honor the victory of a Chariot team in the Pythia games.

You will leave the slopes of Mount Parnassus to either return to Athens or continue with a tour of the Thessalian plains, where the town of Kalambaka is located.

Arrival in Athens in the late afternoon and drop off at your hotel or the nearest point.

Greca Tip: As a going away gift you can go shopping in the nearby town of Arachova for traditional woven carpets, dry wines, honey and the local cheese formaela.
