Today you will head towards the Corinth Canal, where you will make a brief stop to take some photos and marvel at this famous channel that connects the Aegean Sea with the Gulf of Corinth. With this impressive engineering feat ships did not have to sail more than 400 km around the Peloponnese peninsula to reach the Ionian Sea.

Past verdant hills you will reach Epidaurus and its Theater renowned for its acoustics and still in use today, especially during the summer. You will also visit the museum, which is located inside the archaeological site, between the Ancient Theatre and the Asklepieion.

Your next stop will be the town of Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece.  Your journey will take you to Mycenae where you will visit the prehistoric Acropolis, the Lions Gate and the tomb of "Agamemnon". 

You will finish a full day’s cultural adventure in the comfort of your hotel in Nafplion.

You will enjoy your dinner and have a restoring good night's sleep.

Greca Tip: You can have a delicious meal in Syntagma Square and sip your drink at the port taking in the amazing view of Bourtzi – always lit up at night.

FROM NAFPLION TO OLYMPIA

After a rich breakfast, you will discover Nafplion in a city guided tour. Prepare yourself for an enchanting trip to an olive oil mill to watch the process of making olive oil and taste fresh olive oil as well as the famously delicious Greek olives.

In the afternoon, you will travel through the scenic Arcadia Mountains towards ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic games.

Greca Tip: Remember to take some of the amazing olive oil with you as well as other olive oil derivatives, such as creams and soaps offering all of nature’s benefits.

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
4
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, could be found. 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: We suggest using your free time to visit the Temple of Athena Pronaia at Delphi.

FROM KALAMBAKA TO ATTICA - ATHENS
5
FROM KALAMBAKA TO ATTICA - ATHENS

Early in the morning you 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, you will pass by Thermopylae, where you can see the statue of the Spartan King Leonidas I, famous for leading the battle against the Persians in 480 BC. Arrival in Athens in the afternoon and drop off at your hotel.

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.
