Athens

Founded in prehistoric times, the Greek capital city Athens has now become a thriving metropolis. Despite the urban setting, the city is full of visible history. The remarkable Acropolis, ancient Agora, and Hadrianís Gate all stand as reminders of Athensí long past. But for those who prefer the present, Athens offers shopping in the Plaka, dining in countless fine restaurants and late-night partying at the discos.

 

Kalambaka

One of the most amazing places in Greece, if not the world is Meteora just outside Kalambaka a small village in Northern Greece. The impressive Byzantine monasteries are perched on top of enormous rock formations and this is quite a unique site. Many multi-day tours from Athens include Meteora in their itineraries and visitors stay at hotels located in Kalambaka.

 

Delphi

After Acropolis, Delphi is the most popular archaeological site in Greece. Located 180 km from Athens, a trip to Delphi is listed in just about every tour itinerary and is by far the most popular day trip out of Athens. Delphi in ancient times was considered the center of the known world, the place where heaven and earth met. This was the place on earth where man was closest to God.
