    Starting from Athens, the first stop is at the Corinth Isthmus, the canal that separates mainland Greece from the Peloponnese region.

    The tour takes us next to the mythical Bronze Age citadel of King Agamemnon in Mycenae, with its massive walls and vaulted tombs.

    After the visit, we propose a visit to one of the renowned wineries of the region of Nemea for a tasting session.

    The day ends at Nafplio, with free time for a walk by the sea, or the multitude of restaurants, bars and shops of the picturesque city that in 1829 was declared the first capital of liberated Greece.
    The Archaeological Museum of Nafplio and the 17th century fortress Palamidi reveal the city's importance through the ages.

    We then proceed to the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, renowned for its natural acoustics.

    The day can be enriched with visits to a traditional distillery, where you can learn about one of the most well known Greek products, ouzo, or with a tour of an olive oil production facility at nearby Lygourio, where you will learn more about Greece's oldest export product.

    In the early afternoon, we depart for Dimitsana, a beautiful traditional mountain village where we spend the night.
    Dimitsana's Open Air Water Power Museum awaits us for a guided tour of how the power of the Loussios River was harnessed through time.

    Situated inside the Loussios Gorge, the 16th century Prodromou Monastery offers a chance for an idyllic walk along the river bank.

    Lunch will be served at a traditional farm before we head to Ancient Olympia where the day sums up.
    We are at Ancient Olympia, at the place that Zeus selected to host the Olympic Games, at the site of the actual stadium where the games were held every four years from the 8th century BC until the 4th AD. A detailed visit of the expansive site and superb archaeological museum are on the program.

    Next stop is charming Nafpaktos and its 15th century Venetian fortress, after crossing over from Peloponnese via the Charilaos Trikoupis bridge, a modern marvel of engineering.

    From there, the route climbs to the southern slopes of Mount Parnassos, heading for the legendary city of Delphi.
    The final day of the tour delves into the rich past of Delphi, the city that owes its legend to the famous Oracle and its influence on most major events of ancient Greek history. We visit the site, the Tholos, the museum with the beautiful charioteer and many other unique exhibits.

    As we start our return to Athens, one last stop at the 10th century AD byzantine monastery of Osios Loukas reveals a unique Christian monument protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
