Title
The Best of Greece

Vacation Overview
On this Best of Greece tour, discover the best of historic and mythical—as well as modern—Greece. As the birthplace of Western civilization, Greece has some of the world 's most fascinating archaeological sites, and now is your chance to explore the Greek mainland and the Peloponnese peninsula on your affordable tour of Greece. Your tour starts and ends in Athens and overnights along the way in Nauplia, Sparta, Olympia, Delphi, and Kalambaka.

Step back in time as you visit some of Greece's ancient sites where the Mycenaean civilization thrived in Greece between 1600 and 1200 BC. Enjoy a guided sightseeing of the Mycenae archaeological site and learn about its history and legends. In Athens, visit the Acropolis, still standing after 2,500 years. Dedicated to the goddess Athena, the Acropolis sits high on a rocky hill and is a symbol of the wealth and power of Athens at its apex. Visit the amazingly well-preserved, 2,300-year-old open-air theater in Epidaurus and marvel at the perfect acoustics. You'll step back in history—but not as far back as Ancient Greece—when you enjoy sightseeing of the medieval Byzantine Citadel of Mystra, a castle founded in 1249. Also visit the fantastic mountain landscape of Meteora with its 24 rock-top monasteries set in almost inaccessible sandstone peaks.

On this affordable Greece tour, you 'll travel to Olympia, legendary home of the Olympic Games, and Delphi, where people visited in ancient Greece to seek the advice of the Oracle. But that 's not all…you 'll experience modern Greece as well. Cross over one of the world's longest cable-stayed bridge, the spectacular Rion-Antirion Bridge, which links the Peloponnese peninsula to the Greek mainland.

From the ancient ruins to contemporary engineering —with beautiful landscapes in between—this tour through Greece is perfectly designed for value-minded travelers. You 'll agree that your affordable Greece tour is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation!
