Trip Summary
2 nights in Athens

Athens captures the heart of its visitors. It's the capital city, vibrant in nature, exciting and exasperating, worldly and chic, a city that attacks the senses. It boasts art, culture, world-class museums, charming neighborhoods, exceptional food, lively people and glorious ancient gems such as the Acropolis and the iconic Parthenon. This city has a lot to offer and we promise you, it won't disappoint.

Explore the Acropolis, Parthenon, Temple of Nike, Hadrian's Gate, National Archaeological Museum, Greek Ancient Art Museum, Byzantine Museum, Temple of Poseidon, The Plaka, Syntagma Square, House of Parliament and so much more!



2 nights in Olympia

Olympia, the town that was home to the first Olympic Games and was in use for over a thousand years. Here, the fittest and strongest ancient Greek competed against one another to demonstrate their physical prowess and to pay tribute to their gods. The first Olympiad was held in 776BC and every four years following that where the ancient Greeks gathered to watch or compete in these athletic competitions.

Visit and explore the Archaeological Site of Olympia, Archaeological Museum, TEmple of Zeus, Temple of Hera, Archimedes` Museum, The Garden Taverna, and so much more.



2 nights in Delphi

Delphi is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the most famous sanctuaries of antiquity. It was home to the oracle that was consulted before any important political decisions at the time. Here you will see the ruins of the temple of Apollo that was worshipped onsite, the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia, the theatre, the stadium and the archaeological museum.

Visit and explore The Sacred Way, Temple of Apollo, Polygonal Wall, Treasury of the Athenians, Theater, Stadion, Castalian Springs, The Tholos, Delphi Archaeological Museum, and so much more.



2 nights in Kalambaka (The Meteora)

Can you believe people saw these enormous sandstone pillars and thought, 'I`m going to live up there!'? That's exactly what happened centuries ago in the Meteora, and today you can visit the monasteries that are still inhabited by 60 monks and nuns. Originally there were 24 monasteries, where today only six remain.

Visit and explore the Great Meteoron Monastery, Monastery of Varlaam, Monastery of Ayia Triada (Holy Trinity), Monastery of Ayios Nikolaos Anapafsas (St. Nicholas), Monastery of Rousanou (St. Barbara), Monastery of Ayios Stefanos (St. Stephen), Hiking the Meteora Monasteries, Kalambaka Town Center, Kastraki Town Center, and so much more.



2 nights in Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki (also known as Salonica) offers the cosmopolitan culture and energy of a big city with the friendly ambience and charm of a smaller town. It`s a wonderful destination to experience the real Greece without the crowds and congestion of Athens. This beautiful city has an impressive multiethnic heritage, influenced by the diverse civilizations that have left their mark, including the Romans, Venetians, and Ottoman Turks. Visitors are awed by the ancient ruins, Byzantine churches, and the world-class archaeology museum, one of the best in Greece.

Visit and discover the Ano Poli (The Upper town or Old Town), Ladadika District, Archaeological Museum, Museum of Byzantine Culture, Roman Rotunda (Saint George's Church), The Markets, The White Tower: Relic of the Byzantine-Era Ramparts, Church of Saint Demetrius, Arch of Galerius, and so much more.

Package Map Picture
Greece

<b>Greece</b> is THE land of ancient sites and architectural treasures: the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, the reconstructed palace at Knossos, the belly button of the cosmos at Delphi, fallen columns galore on the sacred island of Delos, and frescoed Minoan palaces on Crete. But don't expect a visit there to be a sober study of the ancient world, the Greek propensity for partying dates back to Dionysus. Then there are 1400 islands to explore. Greece is much more than what you were taught at school or the predictable summer image of glorious sunsets and sandy beaches.
