Classical Greece Tour with Meteora: Athens to Athens

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 640

This short Greece group tour is ideal for those wanting to see the country’s most impressive ruins and other sights in limited time. It’s a memorable round trip from Athens that’s ideal for any ancient history buff.


This short but satisfying 4-day coach tour staying at 3 and 4 star accommodations, immerses you in the spirit of ancient Greece, taking you to sights such as Olympia, Delphi, and UNESCO listed Meteora.

Leave Athens behind (perhaps after a few days stay – the city has enjoyed a new energy since the 2004 Olympics) and travel along the scenic coastline. This route takes you through ancient port towns, and important historic hubs such as Nauplia, Mycenae, and Epidarus, where you’ll explore one of the ancient world’s most impressive theatres. Your destination is Olympia, birthplace of course to the Olympic Games, but also home to an intriguing archaeological site and museum.

Known in legend as the centre of the world, Delphi is best known for its namesake oracle. Again, you’ll explore the ancient treasures and museum here, including Polyzalos’ Apollo statue. Your last full day takes you to arguably the most impressive sight on the tour, Meteora. Positioned atop their stone pinnacles, these 24 elevated monasteries have inspired travellers, writers, film-makers (Bond fans, note the Monastery of Holy Trinity) and countless others for centuries. Return to Athens for departure, or the next part of your journey.
