DAY 5: We depart our hotel at 9 AM for the drive to Epidaurus, a prominent Greek city dating from 500 BC.   There we meet our guide and tour the ancient amphitheater of Epidaurus, the Temples of Asklepios and Artemis, the Greek Baths and the museum.  After lunch we are on the road to Olympia.  Along the way you will notice the rugged countryside that is so typical of Greece-away from the modern cities-and magnificent coastline of the Ionian Sea.

Overnight Olympia

DAY 6: This morning we embark upon a truly fascinating tour of Olympia.  This ancient city-state, best known for being the site of the Olympic Games from 900 BC to 500 BC is a sprawling city of ruins including the open air stadium where the games took place.  After our tour and lunch, we begin our drive to Delphi where you can consult with the famous Oracle.  Along our route we will pass through Patras, the seaport that connects Peloponnese to mainland Greece and Europe.  We will check into our hotel and have diner on our own.  You will certainly want to wander the town and take in all the surrounding beauty after dinner.

Overnight Delphi

DAY 7: This morning our guide will lead us to the top of the mountain and visit ancient Delphi.  After the Acropolis, Delph is the most popular archaeological site in Greece.  In ancient times Delphi was considered the center of the known world, the place where heaven and earth met.  Once all our questions have been answered by the Oracle, we will return to Athens. After a short rest, we will enjoy a provided dinner and show.
