The Corinth Canal

Ancient Amphitheater of Epidauros

  • 2nd day: In the morning, visit the Archaeological Site with the Sanctuary of Olympian Zeus, the Ancient Stadium and the Archaeological Museum.
    Then drive on through the plains of Ilia and Achaia until the magnificent bridge which is crossing the Corinthian Bay from Rion to Antirion.
     
    The Rio–Antirio bridge, officially the Charilaos Trikoupis bridge after the statesman who first envisaged it, is one of the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridges and the longest of the fully suspended type.
    It crosses the Gulf of Corinth near Patra, linking the town of Rio on the Peloponnese peninsula to Antirio on mainland Greece by road.
    Pass by the picturesque towns of Nafpactos and Itea, and arrive in Delphi. There you can enjoy a delicious meal.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

  • 3rd day: In the morning you are visiting the Archaeological Site and the Museum.
    Depart for Kalambaka, a small town stated at the foot of the astonishing complex of Meteora, where you can enjoy your dinner. 
    Meteora is a formation of immense monolithic pillars and hills like huge rounded boulders dominate 
    the local area. 

It is also associated with one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece, second in importance only to Mount Athos. 

The six monasteries are building on natural sandstone rock pillars, at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineios river and Pindus Mountains, in central Greece. The ladies that will visit the Monastery, need a skirt and the gentlemen long trousers.




Meteora


  • 4th day:  Visit Meteora, among striking scenery, perched on top of huge rocks which seems to be suspended in mid-air, stand ageless Monasteries, where you can see exquisite specimens of Byzantine art. You return to Athens, via Trikala, Lamia and Thermopylae, where you have a short stop to see across the road the Monument of Leonidas. You will arrive in Athens, in the evening.
