One of our most popular short tours.
START / FINISH - Athens
Duration: 3 days/2 nights
This Classical tour is a good introduction to some of the most famous places on the Greek mainland. You'll travel to the Peloponnese via the bridge over the Corinth Canal - if you are fortunate there may be a ship passing through. In the Argolis region you will visit the renowned Epidavrus theatre, host to the Athens Festival every summer; Mycenae, discovered in the 19th with its links to Agamemnon and Homer's Iliad & Odyssey; Nafplion, the elegant town in the shade of the Palamidi Fortress.
Olympia is always a popular visit, especially due to its links with the modern Olympic Games. The site is one of the largest and most picturesque in Greece. Delphi has an equally lovely situation on the side of a mountain and is well known for its oracle.
