Delphi is one of the most popular day trips to go to while in Athens, and for good reason! This is said to be where the Greek god Apollo had his oracle where mortals would go and ask the god questions on how to solve their problems in life. Tucked away in the gorgeous mountainside, this day trip is not one to miss!
The Epidaurus and Mycenae tour is excellent if you are interested in the myth of Agamemnon, the king of the Mycenaeans and said to be one of the instigators of the Trojan War. See his tomb and the famous Lion’s Gate before going to the Epidaurus greek theatre and experience the original beginnings of theatre!
After having your morning meal at the hotel, you can choose to do a full day tour to Ancient Olympia and the Corinth Canal as a private tour, and see where the first Olympics were said to be located.
Another great day trip while visiting Athens is heading to Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon. Poseidon, the god of the sea has a beautiful temple that overlooks the water. Spend the day making your way down the cape of Greece and see some of the Greek islands in the distance, and finally explore this incredibly well-kept temple from thousands of years ago.
If you want to visit some of the Greek Islands but don’t want to stray too far from the mainland, the Greek islands of Hydra, Poros, and Aegina as a day trip is an excellent way to explore. Board a ferry that takes you to the islands where you can see what these amazing islands have to offer.
Nafplio is also another excellent option for a day trip. Take a city tour while you are there and learn about how this city and island was the first capital of Greece, the “First Hellenic Republic.” The town is similar in style to the Venetians since the Venetians occupied the island for many years of its past. Learn about the history of this great city which has so much connection to the history of the entire country, and marvels at its wonderful beauty.
Here comes the time when you are all ready to say goodbye to the beautiful sights and places in Greece. After your morning meal, you can take your private transfer to the airport. Hope this Greece itinerary covers all your desired travel destinations in Greece.
