The Grand Tour of Greece includes pretty much all the most important sights on the mainland of Greece. Taking them in a great circuit from Athens, heading west to pass over the impressive Corinth Canal and into the Peloponnese where you'll visit Mycenae, picturesque Nafplion and the incredible theatre at Epidavros. After visiting ancient Olympia and crossing the fabulous Rion-Antirion bridge you'll spend time at the magnificent Delphi, home of the oracle, then the equally impressive monasteries at Meteora. Even after all of this fascinating sightseeing there is still more to come, the ancient sites at Vergina, Dion and Edessa, followed by Mount Olympus and finally Thessaloniki.
