Corfu, Paleokastritsa & Boat Trip
This tour visits Paleokastritsa, the area of unique natural beauty on the northwestern shores of Corfu. It is known as the “Capri of Greece” for its rocky promontories cloaked in pine and cypress trees extending out into the sea, hiding small sandy bays and coves with crystal clear turquoise waters glimmering under the bright sun. In Paleokastritsa, you will take a 30-minute boat ride to the famous grottos of the area, the sea caves of “Nafsika,” “Saint Nikolas,” and the “Blue Eye.” Here, the natural ground formations combined with the minerals in the ground and the natural sunlight give life to amazing forms, colors and optical illusions. Upon your return to the main beach, you have free time to enjoy a refreshing dive in the turquoise waters, sunbathe on the soft sand or beach walk, before boarding the coach for the drive uphill to the traditional village of Lakones. You will be driving up the very same serpentine-like, narrow road where the famous car chase in the James Bond movie “For your Eyes only” was filmed.  In the village of Lakones, you can admire local village architecture more reminiscent of Italy than of typical Greek villages, before enjoying a “meze” (Greek snack) and tasting wines of the island at the local café at the “Bella Vista,” a location known for the spectacular and breathtaking views it commands over Paleokastritsa.

Please note: The trip to the caves is subject to sea and weather conditions.

Itea, Mythology of Delphi
In antiquity Delphi was one of the world's most important religious centers. The Sanctuary of Apollo attracted a host of pilgrims who came to consult the oracle. Even now an aura of mystery surrounds the ruins of Delphi,a UNESCO World Heritage Site, exposed on a rocky slope. For sheer grandeur of natural beauty combined with ancient ruins, there is probably no other spot on earth that rivals Delphi. Visit the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, where the celebrated oracle Pythia dwelt. Her ambiguous prophecies were known and respected all over the ancient world. Visit the Temple of Apollo, the Sacred Way, the amphitheater, the best preserved stadium of Greece, and the Castalian spring, where in ancient days the pilgrims had to wash before they were allowed to consult the oracle. In the Delphi museum, see such treasures as the Omphalos, which marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. 

Please note: As this tour involves walking around the Archaeological Site and in Delphi, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

Nafplio, Epic Theatre of Epidaurus & Venetian Fortress
You will board your motor coach  for the 40-minute drive along a picturesque and twisting road, towards the site of Epidaurus. The famous Theater of Epidaurus is the best-preserved ancient Greek Theater. Located next to the sanctuary-hospital of Asclepius, the ancient Greek God of Healing, the theater’s function was directly connected with this sanctuary. Famous for its superb acoustics, the theater was built in the 4th century B.C. and had a capacity of about 12,000 spectators. People arrived from all over the Greek world in order to attend the religious events there. Due to the architect’s excellent design, the acoustics are so good, you can be sitting right at the top in the last row and still hear even a coin dropping in the middle of the stage. Your tour will then proceed to Palamidi, an impressive Venetian Fortress, which dominates the city of Nafplio. A part of the Palamidi Fortress was used as a prison after the liberation of Greece from the Turks. Its location offers a wonderful photo opportunity as it overlooks the entire Argolic Valley.

Nafplio, The Kings Tomb & Venetian Fortress
You will board your motor coach for the 30-minute scenic drive through Nafplio and past the ancient sites of Tiryns to the ruins of Mycenae. The first in-depth excavations were carried out by the German archaeologist Schliemann in 1876, who was obsessed with finding the grave of Agamemnon. His diligent work exposed the famous Lions Gate, the entrance to the city, which contains the shaft burial graves of some ancient nobles. A short distance away is the Beehive Tomb, so called due to its unusual shape.  Then a short drive will bring you to Fithia Village where a brief shopping opportunity will take place. On the second part of your journey you will return to Nafplio where the Castle of Palamidi stands. From this vantage point there is a lovely panoramic view. The castle was built by the Turks and the Venetians as a fortress and until recently, was used as a prison. The castle is still in a good state of preservation and offers great views and photo opportunities over the entire Argolis bay.

Athens, Acropolis & New Museum Tour & Transfer to Airport
The ancient remains of Athens constitute one of the brightest jewels of the Mediterranean. The Ancient City and the Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, have been kept fairly intact. You will see perhaps the most famous temple of the Ancient City, the Parthenon. Walking up a winding path towards the Acropolis, you will pass through the Propylaea, which is the entrance to the Acropolis and see the Erechtheum Temple, built between 421-405 B.C. and famous for its exquisite attention to detail. You will also see the Porch of the Caryatids, (or Porch of the Maidens), in the distance. Reinforced by man, the natural fortress of the Acropolis stands 230 feet above the city. You cannot help but be impressed by the wide-sweeping view below. The intent of the new Acropolis Museum is to house every artifact found on the archaeological site.  You will see the unsurpassed quality of the masterpieces of ancient Athens, including the entire sculpted decoration of the Parthenon as it was on the building. You will see many architectural phases and thousands of finds that provide valuable insight into the everyday activities of ancient Greece.

Please note:  There is no shopping stop organized but guests can explore the shops at the Acropolis. The path up to the Acropolis is winding and may be challenging for those with mobility issues.
