  • Explore Acropolis
  • Visit Athens get an opportunity to explore including Acropolis and Hephaisteion temple

Embrace Greek culture, history and hospitality and visit some of the most picturesque and important regions of the country. Our first stop is Athens, a contemporary city, combining the present and the past in a unique way. From there you will head to Peloponnese, one of the most important regions of Greece, rich in history and culture, tradition, ancient monuments quaint towns and stunning scenery. Peloponnese may be Greece's mythical heart, but a visit here is not all about the ancients, the Peloponnese today is an unspoilt patchwork of dizzying mountains, deep gorges, green valleys and wildflower meadows. The further south you go, the fresher the air, the more splendid the isolation.
