Detailed Description

Summertime is an excellent time to explore Greece due to the great weather. June is also a great time to visit because of the festivals that take place, such as the Athens & Epidaurus Festival, the Miaoulia festival in Hydra, and the Nafplio Festival. Your Greece tour will begin in Athens, where you will attend a live theater performance on your first evening. The following day, you will tour Athens by way of e-bike. After witnessing many of Athens’ historical sights, you will delight in an authentic hammam experience.

You will then venture to Delphi. Here, a side-trip to Thermopylae Battlefield will introduce you to the site where King Leonidas and many brave Spartans sacrificed their lives for Greece. Corinth will be your next destination. Here, you will learn all about St. Paul and see where he preached to the Corinthians. Directly following your return to Athens from Corinth, an afternoon flight will take you to Thessaloniki.

Upon your arrival, your guide will lead you on a tour of Thessaloniki’s historical highlights, such as its Upper Town and the Old Monastery. The next day, you will visit Pella and Vergina in addition to learning about the cities’ connection to Alexander the Great. Dion and Mt. Olympus will be your next destinations. The mountaintop monasteries of Meteora will then conclude your tour.
