Epidaurus, Greece

Day 1: Athens - Corinth Canal - Mycenae - Epidaurus - Nauplia (D)
Leave Athens behind and head west to Corinth Canal - your first stop of the day! Linking the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf, the canal is narrow, and the ancient ships that once passed through have been replaced with bungee jumpers. After exploring, continue on to Mycenae for a walking tour. Learn about the development of Classical Greek culture as you walk through this fascinating archeological site.

After lunch (own expense) in Mycenae, travel to Epidaurus for a tour of its archaeological site, stopping to see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sanctuary of Asklepios (shrine to the Greek god of medicine). Contine to Nauplia - a pretty seaport town - where you'll have the evening to spend at leisure.

Overnight: Amalia (4-star hotel) in Nauplia

Day 2: Nauplia - Olympia - Antirion - Delphi (B, D)
After breakfast, set off with your guide by luxury coach, and visit the Archeological Site of Olympia. Home to the Atlis (Sanctuary of the Gods), the site was a mecca for ancient Greeks who came here to worship Zeus. See incredible ruins like the Stadium of Olympia, where the country’s ancient Olympic Games were held.

In the afternoon, board your coach for a scenic drive to Antirion, passing the towns of Patras. Cross over the Rion-Antirion Bridge - considered a landmark of 21st-century Greece - and then sightsee independently in Antirion and the nearby town of Nafpaktos. Finish your day with a relaxing meal at your hotel in Delphi.

Overnight: Parnassos or Hermes (3-star), or Amalia (4-star) in Delphi

Day 3: Delphi - Kalambakka (B, D)
Rise early and meet your guide to explore Delphi - one of the most important archeological digs in Europe. As you walk around this stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site with your guide, see monuments like the Sanctuary of Athena.

Head inside the Delphi Archeological Museum and encounter numerous artifacts and relics that date back to 15th century BC. Watch out for the Charioteer of Delphi and the intriguing Sphinx of Naxos. After spending most of your day in Delphi, head to Kalambakka by coach, traveling through the eye-catching towns of Amphissa, Lamia and Trikala. Enjoy dinner at your hotel and then relax at leisure.

Overnight: 4-star or 3-star hotel in central Kalambakka

The local tour operator runs a professional operation: friendly, timely and safe. Our driver Dimitri and guide Lila were excellent hosts. Though Lila is uptight, she does a great job. Thank you.
