This Ancient Greece holiday is a six-day, fully guided small group tour around some of the country’s most spectacular ancient sites on the mainland. Your guide will be a local expert in Greek history and mythology who brings all the ancient stories and heritage to life as you tour the sites. Starting in Athens and its surroundings, we spend two days taking in the city’s greats including the Acropolis and the Parthenon, as well as the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the National Library, and the Parliament building.
We then head west to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Mycenae on the Peloponnese Peninsula where we spend time visiting the 3,500-year-old citadel ruins said to be Agamemnon’s home. After this, we head to the beautiful seaside town of Nafplion, the country’s first capital.
Our next stop is further west at Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympics where we visit some of the smaller sites, taking in the Temple of Zeus and Hera, the Stadium, and the altar of the Olympic flame. Our last stop before heading back to Athens is the great ancient temple at Delphi, on the mountainous cliffs of Mount Parnassus. Which is also surrounded by the stunning landscapes of Parnassus National Park.
Please note that we can also organize this as a private tour if you would prefer to not travel in a group, so please do not hesitate to chat with us about your requirements.
