At your own pace, explore Classical Greece and Meteora. A rental car tour of the most important sites in Ancient Greece, including the palace of Mycenae, the theater of Epidaurus, Ancient Olympia, the oracle of Delphi, the monasteries of Meteora, and Greece’s capital, Athens.
Eight days of history, nature, and traditional Greek cuisine.
Day 1: Athens – Nafplion
Arrival in Athens and rental car pickup at the Athens airport. The journey to Nafplion begins.
Arrival and accommodation at the chosen hotel.
We recommend making a brief stop along the way at the Corinth Canal.
Day 2: Nafplion – Olympia
Breakfast and free day to explore the Argolis region. We recommend paying a visit to the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus, which is famous for its excellent acoustics, Mycenae, where you will see the Mycenaean Acropolis, the Lion Gate, and the Tomb of Agamemnon.
Departure to Olympia in the afternoon, arrival at the hotel, and accommodation.
Day 3: Olympia – Galaxidi or Itea
Breakfast and free day to explore the birthplace of the Olympic Games, where you can see the Boulefterion, the Palestra, the Gymnasium, the baths, the stadium, and the Olympic Games archaeological museum.
In the afternoon, we will depart for Galaxidi, passing through the world’s largest suspension bridge. A few kilometers from the bridge, we recommend a short stop to visit the old port of Lepanto and the statue of Miguel de Cervantes, which reminds us of the battle of Lepanto, in which the Ottoman Empire fought against the Holy League.
Arrival and accommodation in Galaxidi or Itea.
Unlike other similar itineraries that visit Delphi with a rental car, we recommend spending the night in Galaxidi or Itea, especially if traveling in spring or summer.
Galaxidi is a charming town known for its small fishing port, yacht club, neoclassical architecture, and small restaurants by the sea where you can sample traditional fish and seafood dishes.
Itea is a few kilometers from Delphi; on the afternoon of your arrival, you can relax on the beach and dine at one of the seaside taverns.
Day 4: Delphi – Kalambaka
Breakfast and departure for a visit to the Delphi archaeological site. The Delphi oracle was a sacred place of consultation with the gods.
You will visit the Oracle Temple in Delphi. You will pass by several small buildings known as treasures in the past.
They’ll see the theater, the Castalia fountain, the ancient stadium where the Panhellenic games were held, the Apollo temple, and the Delphi Museum.
Afternoon departure to Kalambaka, arrival at the hotel, and overnight stay.
Day 5: Kalambaka – Athens
Breakfast followed by a visit to the Meteora monasteries. Meteora is one of the most unique places on the planet. Meteora means “rocks in the air,” and it is a set of sandstone cliffs formed 30 million years ago under the sea.
As the sea level dropped, these fascinating formations sculpted throughout history were revealed. These rocks are used to construct monasteries. Six of them are currently open to the public.
Following the visit, return to Athens, where you will pick up your rental car.
Stay the night at your hotel.
