Visit the historically rich country of Greece where modern day meets ancient times. Start your journey in Athens where you will experience the neoclassical trio - the University of Athens, Athens Academy, and the National Library. Climb up to the Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to wander around famous structures like the Parthenon, built in the fifth century BC following a victory over the Persians. Take a ferry ride over to the Saronic Island of Poros where you will dive deeper into Greek Art and Ancient Greece, and the influence that both had on the Western World.
Tour the island of Epidaurus where you will visit the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, built in the fourth century BC and still in use today. Stop at Nafplio, the first capital of Greece, home to ancient castles and neoclassical mansions. Continue to the car-free island of Hydra, famous for its stone architecture and its striking harbor. Roam Mycenae, an archaeological site that dates back to the Bronze Age of Ancient Greece, and visit one of Greece’s best wineries. Finish out your trip with a Greek “glendi,” or party, before heading past the Corinth Canal and back to Athens.
