DAY 1 : UK - Athens.

Fly to Athens where you will be met by our representative and transferred to your hotel for two nights.

DAY 2 : Athens.

Enjoy a day at leisure in Athens today. Alternatively, why not join the optional three-island cruise on the Saronic Gulf to view Aegina, Poros and Hydra? This evening, enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the old Plaka District at leisure and stroll its narrow streets, awash with the sounds of bouzouki music and the lively bustle of local tavernas. Includes Breakfast

DAY 3 : Athens - Corinth Canal - Epidaurus - Nauplia.

Explore the highlights of this ancient capital on an included Athens sightseeing tour before heading to the Corinth Canal to marvel at this incredible feat of engineering. Later, continue to Argolis, a hilly countryside region dotted with pine trees and oleanders, for a visit to the spectacular amphitheatre of Epidaurus. Admire the open-air theatre, a magnificent setting that can still seat 14,000 spectators before journeying along the coast to Nauplia for one night. Includes Breakfast

DAY 4 : Nauplia - Mycenae - Sparta.

This morning, enjoy an included excursion to the ruins of Mycenae, an impressive ancient city once dubbed the 'city rich in gold' by Homer. During excavation, the Golden Mask of Agamemnon was unearthed here as well as other priceless treasures that exactly match Homer's descriptions in the Iliad. This afternoon, drive through the beautiful Peloponnese region to Sparta for one night. Includes Breakfast, Dinner

DAY 5 : Sparta - Mystra - Olympia.

This morning's highlight is a visit to the ruined Byzantine citadel of Mystra, once known as the 'Wonder of Morea'. Nestled on a forested hillside in the lush Peloponnese region, Mystra's crescent shaped city was famed as a centre of culture and art and still contains distinctive churches and monasteries with elaborate frescoes as well as a palace and hilltop fortress. Later, continue to Olympia for one night. Includes Breakfast, Dinner

DAY 6 : Olympia - Delphi.

Visit Olympia to learn more about the history of the Olympic games on an optional sightseeing tour.

Later, journey through picturesque villages to magnificent Delphi, for one night. Includes Breakfast

DAY 7 : Delphi - Kalambaka.

Spend the morning at leisure in Delphi or join the optional sightseeing tour of Delphi archaeological site. Once called 'The Navel of the Earth', Delphi was considered the greatest Oracle of the ancient world and people journeyed from all over the globe to seek advice here. Today it is still one of the grandest sights in Greece, with its theatre and Temple of Apollo still standing in their lovely natural surrounds. This afternoon, drive via Lamia and Trikala to Kalambaka for one night. Includes Breakfast, Dinner

DAY 8 : Kalambaka - Meteora - Athens.

Today's included trip is sure to be a highlight of your trip. Head to the heart of Meteora, where a cluster of monastic buildings sit perched atop natural pillar-like rock formations, hundreds of metres above the valley floor. Their spectacular and seemingly inaccessible position provided an ideal retreat for the hermit monks who lived here and today, the unusual monastery-topped rock spires provide an unforgettable sight. Later drive to Athens for an overnight stay. This evening, why not join our optional dinner at a typical Greek restaurant? Includes Breakfast
