  • Day 3 ATHENS-CORINTH-NAUPLIA Join the included guided tour of Athens, featuring the highlights of this ancient capital with a visit to the Acropolis.

  • Day 4 NAUPLIA-EPIDAURUS-MYCENAE-SPARTA This morning, stop in Epidaurus, located in the hilly countryside dotted with pine trees and oleanders. In this magnificent setting, visit the ancient open-air theatre, which can still seat 14,000 spectators. Later, enjoy the included guided excursion to the archaeological site and museum of Mycenae, with the imposing ruins of the great city that dominated the eastern Mediterranean world from the 15th to the 12th century B.C. It played a vital role in the development of classical Greek culture and is linked to the Homeric epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey. Travel into the Peloponnese to Sparta, where history hangs between reality and legend.
    Today's Distance: 126 mi/ 202 km (B,D)

  • Day 7 DELPHI-KALAMBAKA Enjoy free time in town or join the optional morning sightseeing tour of the archaeological site in Delphi, where the oracle of Apollo spoke.

On to Kalambaka.

  • Day 8 KALAMBAKA-METEORA-ATHENS Discover Meteora, a cluster of spectacular Christian-Orthodox monasteries perched in an unforgettable manner on a set of rising rock formations.
