Set off from Athens in the morning and head along the mainland coast to Corinth Canal by coach. Linking the Saronic Gulf with the Gulf of Corinth, the canal is steep-sided and narrow, making it a favorite spot for thrill-seeking bungee jumpers. After stopping to see this impressive canal, your tour continues to the seaside town of Nauplia for a walk, and then continue by coach to Mycenae for a walking tour of its archaeological site. Learn about the Classical Greece era from your guide, hearing tales of the period’s strong influence on the Roman Empire. Here, enjoy free time for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant.
In the afternoon, the archaeological site of Epidaurus. Enjoy a guided tour around its evocative ruins, and see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sanctuary of Asklepios (the shrine to the Greek god of medicine) and the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus.
Enjoy your evening in Nauplia or Olympia (depending on travel date) at leisure after dinner in your hotel.
Overnight: Amalia (4-star hotel) in Nauplia or Olympia
Day 2: Nauplia/Olympia – Antirion – Delphi (B, D)
Enjoy breakfast in your hotel and then meet your guide for a morning tour of Olympia’s archaeological site. In the times of Classical Greece, the site attracted pilgrims who gathered around the Atlis (Sanctuary of the Gods) to worship the Greek god Zeus. See fascinating ruins like the Stadium of Olympia, where Greece’s ancient Olympic Games took place.
After spending your morning in Olympia, and perhaps taking lunch at leisure, hop back on board your coach for the drive to Antirion, passing Patras on the way. Cross over the incredible Rion-Antirion Bridge – considered an architectural icon of 21st-century Greece and pass by town of Nafpaktos. Your day finishes with a relaxing meal in your Delphi hotel.
Overnight: Parnassos or Hermes (3-star), or Amalia (4-star) in Delphi
Day 3: Delphi – Athens (B)
Set off early with your friendly guide to explore Delphi’s archaeological site – one of the most important in Europe. As you walk around this intriguing UNESCO World Heritage site with your guide, see monuments like the Sanctuary of Athena and the Temple of Apollo.
In the late morning visit Delphi Archaeological Museum to see countless numbers of artifacts and relics – many of them dating back to 15th-century BC. As you walk ‘round at leisure, look out for must-see pieces including the Charioteer of Delphi, the Sphinx of Naxos and the marble statue of Antonius (a beloved friend of Emperor Hadrian).
After enjoying lunch at leisure in Delphi, you’ll return to Athens by coach, arriving in the early evening.

My friends have never done a coach tour before and the 5 of us had a great time. It was so convenient having someone else drive, handle the luggage and of course tell us in depth information about the sites that we saw. Miltizi was very engaging. The only thing that was a little inconvenient was that lunch was not included, which we knew and were fine with, but the bus only stopped at one restaurant for lunch and there were no other options to go to. Since, there were no other lunch options, then it should have been included in the price and I could have had it paid off before we left

This was an outstanding tour! Dimitra, our guide, was excellent and Anotonis, our driver, navigated the sharp turns and hills expertly. The itinerary for the trip was excellent. We had plenty of time at each of the main sites visited For example, we had about 4.5 hours at Delphi and saw all the sites and museum as compared to the more limited time the folks on the day tour from Athens had.. The time at each site was divided between a narrated tour of the site and museum with Dimitra and free time on our own to wander. The tour was a manageable and enjoyable 20 people from the US, Canada, Australia, and France. Most of the folks were on the 4-day tour including Meteora which is spectacular but we had seen previously. The bus was comfortable and well air-conditioned and the hotels/buffet breakfasts and dinners were adequate. I would highly recommend this tour or the 4-day tour in order to see some of the key ancient archeological sites in Greece.
