This trip is not just a trip in Greece. It is a trip in the past, to the birthplace of science and the great growth of the arts. In this trip, you will travel 3500 years back in time, as you will visit some of the most important ancient Greek sites, including the Acropolis of Athens and Delphi, and mainly in the area of Peloponnese: ancient Olympia, ancient Epidaurus (with its famous theater), Mycenae, Nafplio, Sparta, the hidden monasteries in Loussios gorge and ancient Tegea. It is a trip that seeks not only to offer information and knowledge, but also to stimulate the imagination by immersing the visitor in the very same environment that are described by ancient legends and histories. But there's more than that. Just like in all of our holidays, you will meet the true Greek way of living and we will try to introduce you the true Greece in a way that only locals can do. You will also have the chance to relax, to spend some time on famous Greek beaches, visit the Corinth Canal (and maybe cross it by boat), and to observe some local winemaking and even try a little wine tasting.You can also create your own program of day-trips and activities suited to your length of stay with us.* Our base will be Tripoli of Arcadia, situated in the heart of the ancient world, in the center of the Peloponnese, from where we will have day-trips to each destination. This small city, having managed all these years to maintain the pure Greek way of living (avoiding mass-tourism), will offer you a taste of the authentic Greece, as the locals experience it. We also have two more overnights, one in the picturesque seaside village Galaxidi, close to Delphi, and one in Athens next to the rock of Acropolis.
*Personalized programs can be created for you with additional charge depending on the number of participants, length and program of the tour.
The big advantage of this holiday is that visitors are able to travel to the most important ancient Greek sites outside Athens, without the need of changing hotels every day. Tripoli is located exactly at the centre of all our destinations, no more than 45 minutes by car from the most of them. Forget about bothering with moving luggage every day and losing time checking-in and checking-out of hotels. In this way visitors have more time at their disposal to relax, try some of the activities, or simply enjoy the many cafes and the bars of the city. Finally, in this trip you will meet not only ancient Greece, but the modern one too. One of our biggest priorities is to introduce to you the Greek way of living and culture.
