    See detailed program

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

    The tour then takes us 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.

    A second overnight in the lovely town of Nafplio is well deserved.
    In the morning we depart for Dimitsana, a beautiful traditional mountain village, where we will visit the Open Air Water Power Museum. We will learn how the power of the Loussios River was harnessed through time, both in peace but also during more turbulent times.

    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.

    Overnight in the area.
    We depart in the morning for Vassae, the first Greek inclusion to UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, where the majestic Temple of Apollo Epikourios is attributed to the 5th century BC architect Iktinos of the Parthenon.

    Next stop is the birthplace of the Olympic Games in Ancient Olympia for an overnight stay. Time permitting, we will visit the superb archaeological museum.

    Overnight in the area.
    An early start, in order to visit the archaeological site of Ancient Olympia, including the excavated stadium where the games were held every four years from the 8th century BC until the 4th AD.

    Departure for Central Greece via the Charilaos Trikoupis bridge (also called "Rio-Antirio bridge"), a modern marvel of engineering.
    We stop at charming Nafpaktos and its 15th century Venetian fortress. Nafpaktos was the stage of one of the most important naval battles in Western history, where a fleet of the Holy League, led by the Venetian Republic and the Spanish Empire, inflicted a major defeat on the fleet of the Ottoman Empire.

    From there, the route climbs to the southern slopes of Mount Parnassos, heading for the legendary city of Delphi.
    This 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 archaeological site, the Tholos, the museum with the beautiful charioteer and many other unique exhibits.

    Then our route turns further north, towards the city of Kalambaka.
    Kalabaka is the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Meteora, an impressive field of rock formations whose name literally translates to "hovering". Once remote and almost inaccessible, they offered the perfect location for the development of the second biggest monastic community in Greece. Today only, there are still six Eastern Orthodox Christian monasteries in operation, nested on top of the rocks since Byzantine times.

    After taking in the breathtaking scenery of Meteora, it's time to start our return back to Athens.
