Day 1

Starting from Athens in the morning, we follow the coastal National Highway and we make a short stop at the Corinth Canal.  We continue to the north eastern side of Peloponnese and arrive to Ancient Epidaurus.  One of the most popular archaeological sites in Greece and famous for its Ancient Theatre (4th century BC), considered as one of the purest masterpieces of Greek architecture.  Epidaurus was the motherland of Asclepius, the god of medicine and healing.  Discover the Asclepius Sanctuary, a site with ruins of temples dedicated to the healing gods.

Next, we make a stop for a seaside lunch at the picturesque town of Nafplio, the first capital of the modern Greek State and characterized by its Medieval atmosphere.

We continue to Mycenae, the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon and the most important and richest palatial center of the Late Bronze Age in Greece.  Visit the tomb of King Agamemnon and the archaeological site of one of the greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilization (15th to the 12th century BC).

Driving through the picturesque mountains and villages of central Peloponnese, we arrive at Olympia where we will spend the night.

Day 2

Following breakfast, you begin your tour of the archaeological site of Olympia, the land where the Olympic Games were born (8th century AD).   See the Temple of Zeus, the Temple of Hera, the original ancient Olympic Stadium, as well as other monuments and temples.  Visit the Archaeological Museum where you will find exhibitions of important excavation findings from the Prehistoric times to the Early Christian Period.   Following, take a lunch break at a traditional tavern in Olympia before we depart towards Delphi.

As we cross the Gulf of Corinth over the Rio-Antirrio Bridge, we arrive in Delphi, the heart of the ancient Greek era, where we will spend the night.

Day 3
Following breakfast, take a tour of Delphi, the famous cultural and religious center of Greece, also known in the ancient years as the “Navel of Earth.”  Visit the Sanctuary of Delphi (4th century BC), where according to mythology, the priestess Pythia was believed to deliver oracles to humans while the priests of Apollo translated her prophecies.  You will also visit the Temple dedicated to Apollo, the Castallian Spring, the Treasury of the Athenians, the Archaeological Museum and the Ancient Stadium that hosted the Pythian Games.

As we head back towards Athens, we conclude our journey with a stop for lunch at the picturesque village of Arachova.
