Itinerary

Best of Greece

Day 1 - Athens

Arrive at any time. We recommend arriving a day or two early to fully explore this world-renowned city. There are no activities planned until an evening welcome meeting.

Day 2 - Athens

Take an orientation walk in Athens with the rest of the day free to explore. Opt to visit the Acropolis site, the new Acropolis Museum, the Ancient Agora and the National Archaeological Museum. Prefer to explore on two wheels? Take in everything this historic city has to offer on a bike ride like no other. Pre-book the Athens Morning Bike Tour on the checkout page to include this optional activity on your trip.

Day 3 - Athens/Meteora

Travel to Kalambaka, a good base for visiting the monasteries of Meteora.

Day 4 - Meteora

Spend a full day visiting the stunning mountaintop monasteries of Meteora. Take a bus up to see several monasteries in the area situated at 613m (2011 ft) above sea level, on a precipitous rock pinnacle. The day is yours to choose which monasteries to visit or perhaps take a hike in the scenic local area.

Day 5 - Meteora/Delphi

Visit Ancient Delphi and the Temple of Apollo. Travel through mountain scenery around Mt Parnassos to Delphi. Enjoy a visit to the ancient city of Delphi and the Temple of Apollo, then spend the evening exploring the charming little town or relaxing in a small cafe enjoying the views of the nearby valley.

Day 6 - Delphi/Nafplio

Travel to Nafplio and explore the beautiful cobblestoned streets. Opt to climb the Acronafplia to soak in the views. Described as one of Greece's prettiest towns, the narrow pedestrian streets of old town are begging to be strolled upon. Opt to climb to the Acronafplia and Palamidi Fortresses. The views from the top are phenomenal.

Day 7 - Nafplio/Chania

Spend a free day enjoying the area. Opt to visit Epidavros, as well as the nearby site of Mycenae before an overnight ferry to Crete. There is a wealth of ancient sites within easy reach of Nafplio. Opt for a guided tour of Epidavros, which is highly regarded as one of the most renowned of Greek ancient sites. Opt to visit the famous Mycenae, also close by, with its spectacular treasury and ruins, or for another lesser-known Mycenean site, visit Tiryns, just in the suburbs of Nafplio itself.

Day 8 - Chania

Arrive on Crete and enjoy the day relaxing at one of the many harbour-side cafes. Wander the streets of the old town with its fascinating blend of ancient and modern Turkish and Venetian architecture, reflecting the diverse history of the island.

Day 9 - Chania/Agia Roumeli

Hike the famous and rugged Samaria Gorge. Travel by private transfer and ferry to hike in the Samaria Gorge. Spend the night in Agia Roumeli, a remote fishing village. Connected with neighbouring towns by sea or footpaths, the town has retained its charm. Enjoy time for swimming or relaxing on the beach.

Day 10 - Agia Roumeli/Loutro

Travel by ferry to Loutro. Opt to rent a kayak and explore secluded beaches and coves. The majestic scenery, crystal-clear Mediterranean water, friendly people and peaceful atmosphere all make Loutro an ideal place to relax after all the distance travelled.
