General Description

Day 1:

Our trip will start from Athens. We will drive to the Corinth Canal (separating the Peloponnese from Central Greece) where we will make a brief photo stop. We will continue our journey to Epidaurus and visit the awe-inspiring Ancient Theater of Epidaurus, famous around the globe for its exceptional acoustics! Then, we will go to Nafplion Town and briefly stop for photos before reaching Mycenae.
In Mycenae, our guides will walk you through the Ancient Site of Mycenae, the Treasury of Atreus, and the impressive tholos tomb of Agamemnon! Shortly afterward, we will begin our journey toward Olympia, passing through Tripolis and Megalopolis. Upon reaching the cradle of the Olympic Games, you will enjoy dinner and spend the night.

Day 2:

After breakfast, you will be guided to the Archaeological Site of Ancient Olympia, featuring the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, the Ancient Stadium of Olympia, and the Archaeological Museum! Then, we will travel through the Peloponnesian municipalities of Elis and Achaia, and pass through the city of Patras, one of the international ports of Greece, before crossing the majestic Rion-Antirion Bridge to Central Greece.
Continuing our trip, we will pass right by the stunning towns of Nafpaktos and Itea before reaching the historical Delphi, where you will spend your evening. We will have dinner and an overnight rest.

Day 3:

In the morning, we will have breakfast and then pay an extended visit to the Archaeological Site of Delphi (boasting sights such as the Temple of Apollo and the Ancient Theater) and the Museum of Delphi before departing for the picturesque Kalambaka. Situated just on the slopes of rocky Meteora, it is the perfect spot to enjoy dinner and relax overnight!

Day 4:

Enjoy your breakfast before departing for Meteora. Then, we will be guiding you to two of its beautiful monasteries, built on the top of its unique rock formations, offering exquisite views over the countryside! We will begin our return trip to Athens around the early evening hours, passing through Lamia, Trikala, and Thermopylae, where we will make a brief photo stop at the statue of Leonidas, before reaching the Greek capital.
