This morning’s sightseeing tour reveals the Temple of Zeus, the Temple of the Wingless Victory & Hadrian’s Arch. A highlight is the visit to the Parthenon, built atop the Acropolis.

Later, meet the artisans & view beautiful works of art at a family-run pottery studio. Then a delightful drive takes you through the mountains of Arkadia to Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic Games. This evening, join a master chef for an entertaining cookery demonstration. Afterwards, these authentic flavours of Greece are yours to taste at dinner.

To Delphi, Centre of the Ancient World

In Olympia this morning, see the Olympic Stadium where the original games were first held in 776BC, plus the athletes’ gymnasium & the city’s ancient temples.

The Sacred Way & Kalambaka

Ascend the Sacred Way of Delphi, past the Parian marble Treasury of the Athenians & Polygonal Wall, its interlocking stones still perfectly intact after thousands of years. Now approach the Temple of Apollo, where for 14 centuries the mysterious Oracle of Delphi breathed her enigmatic ‘words’. Continue north, stopping at Thermopylae to see the memorial to Leonidas & his courageous Spartans. Then on to your hotel in Kalambaka. At your hotel this evening, enjoy a hearty Celebration Dinner in true Greek style, complete with wine & good cheer.
