The Acropolis, the Temple of Apollo and the amazing monasteries of Meteora, are just some of the highlights on Insight Vacations breathtaking Glories of Greece escorted tour.
There are places that need to be seen with an expert guide, and the ancient sights in mainland Greece are most definitely one of them. Imagine climbing the sacred rock, the Acropolis, and gazing down at the city of Athens from the centre of the Parthenon. Visualise walking through the Lion Gate in Mycenae, visiting the royal ‘beehive’ tombs as you listen to tales of Greek Gods such as Poseidon and Zeus. It almost sounds mythical, and that’s just your first day! As the seven day tour progresses you will travel to Epidaurus and visit the best preserved open air theatre in Greece. You will then arrive at Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. Learn how the original games were first held in 776 BC, at the city which is centre of the ancient world, Delphi. Marvel at the Temple of Apollo, one of the seven ancient wonders of the world and round off your trip with a visit to the amazing Monasteries of Meteora. One of Europe’s most dramatic mountain settings, these monasteries are situated on the pinnacles of rock towers and have been the inspiration for countless TV programs including the Game of Thrones.
