After breakfast, set off with your guide by luxury coach, and visit the archaeological Site of Olympia. Home to the Atlas or Sanctuary of the Gods, the site was a mecca for ancient Greeks who came here to worship Zeus. See incredible ruins like the Stadium of Olympia, where the first ancient Olympic Games were held. In the afternoon, board your coach for a scenic drive to Antirion, passing the town of Patras. Cross over the Rion-Antirion Bridge, considered a landmark of 21st-century Greece. Finish your day with a relaxing meal at your hotel in Delphi.
Rise early and meet your guide to explore Delphi , one of the most important archaeological treasures in Europe.
