Day 3: Athens – Epidaurus – Mycenae - Olympia

Today you set off for the Argolis region, from Epidaurus, thought to be the birthplace of Apollo's son, Asclepius the healer, to the town of Nauplion before reaching Mycenae, to explore the Treasury of Atreus and the Royal Tombs - the believed birthplace of the famous Greek commander, Agamemnon.

Day 5: Delphi - Kalambaka

If you can, rise early to watch the sunrise over the Gulf of Corinth. Set off to discover the sacred sanctuary of Delphi, oracle of the god Apollo, and the ruins of the temples and sanctuary. Admire the Castalia Fountain and learn more about the site at the museum. Waving farewell to magical Delphi, proceed to Kalambaka, famous for its hilltop monasteries and gravity-defying cliffs. (Meals: breakfast)
