Wonderful experience
All excellent! They picked us up promptly at the hotel, the Magdalena guide a genie, magically moved us to antiquity and in turn made us know the actuality of that beautiful country. Totally recommended. Just one suggestion, in hotels there should be more vegetarian menu options.

Pretty and interesting places
The sites that are visited are for me essential if you like classical culture, spectacular sites in Delphi and Olympia, the mysteries of Epidaurus and Mycenae, the towering monasteries of Meteora, and my favorite mini-stop, the statue of Leonidas at Thermopylae. Great Magdalena

Good trip and good organization
If you can choose to take the option of more stars since some hotels it is worth paying the plus for the rooms and the food. Our guide Nico sees that he has everything very controlled and he knows the history very well but he should make the visits a little more pleasant not so linear.

Excursion Itinerary: Classic Tour - Olympia, Delphi & Meteora

FROM ATHENS TO OLIMPIA - CRADLE OF THE OLYMPIC GAMES
1
FROM ATHENS TO OLIMPIA - 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.  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 any longer.

Past verdant hills, 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.

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.                         

Dinner and accommodation.

FROM OLYMPIA TO THE NAVEL OF THE WORLD - DELPHI
2
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 apparent, given the extensive participation of the Greek cities, which suspended hostilities throughout the celebrations. The Olympiad was recognized as the only accepted chronological event all over Greece and, in essence, constituted 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 made 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 to Delphi traversing the suspension bridge of Rio - Antirion, a modern engineering wonder.

Arrival at Delphi, dinner and rest.

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

FROM THE ORACLE TO METEORA, KALAMBAKA
3
FROM THE ORACLE TO METEORA, KALAMBAKA

In the morning and after a solid breakfast you will visit Delphi, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the center or navel of the ancient world.  It was here where the renowned Oracle of Delphi, a counsellor of kings and pilgrims, took shelter. You cannot miss out on a visit to the museum, which houses the "bronze charioteer", a masterpiece of Greek sculpture.

At the end of your Delphi tour, you will leave the slopes of Mount Parnassus, and head towards the plains of Thessaly, where the city of Kalambaka is located.               

Arrival in Kalambaka, dinner and accommodation.

Greca Tip: The nearby village of Arachova is ideal for shopping local products, such as the traditional woven carpets, honey and the local formaela cheese.

FROM KALAMBAKA TO ATTICA - ATHENS
4
FROM KALAMBAKA TO ATTICA - ATHENS

Early in the morning we will visit Meteora, also recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1988.  In this mysterious landscape, the natural beauty is combined with the compelling presence of the eternal monasteries suspended or "meteora" on top of the huge rocks. Currently there remain only six in use, five for the male and one for the female monastic community.  On the way back to Athens, we will pass by Thermopylae, where we can see the statue of the Spartan King Leonidas I, famous for leading the battle against the Persians in 480 BC. Back to Athens in the afternoon and drop off at your hotel.

Greca Tip: Dresscode in the monasteries: Sleeveless clothing and shorts over the knee for men are prohibited. For ladies skirts and shawls are available at the entrance in case they don’t have such clothing to cover themselves.

Greca Tip: Take a stroll in Kalambaka's old town and look for handmade woodcarved objects and religious icons as well as home-made sausages, honey, fruit sweets and jams, and the regional pudding (“spatoula”) or “halva” for a sweet aftertaste.
