Our 3-day Peloponnese and Delphi Cultural Tour will begin in Athens and take you south to the Argolis region. We will travel through the Corinth Canal, an artificial work that connects the Peloponnese to Continental Greece, until we arrive at the Theater of Epidaurus, the largest and best preserved of the Ancient Theaters, built among pine trees on the mountainside.
Classical Greek tragedy and comedy are reborn every year at the Athens & Epidaurus Festival.
A short tour takes us to Mycenae, with the imposing Lion’s Gate, Agamemnon’s Tomb, and Cyclopean structures, before arriving at Ancient Olympia.
The next day, before heading north, we will explore the Ancient Olympia Stadium and the temples of this place where the Olympic Games were born. We will cross the modern Rio-Antirio bridge to get to Delphi, which the ancient Greeks considered “the navel of the world” and where a priestess named Pythia (Pythonisa) transmitted the oracles of Apollo, the god of light and the sun.
We finish our tour in Athens after three days of travelling through time and seeing the most important places in Classical Greece.
