The glory of ancient Greece is waiting for you on Athens and surroundings.

Above the dusty pavements and a chaotic traffic on the narrow Athens streets, rises the Acropolis hill, where was built the Parthenon, the temple dedicated to Athena, a reminiscent monument of immortality in the midle of turmoil pass, that overtook the capital of Greece.  After you see the Parthenon, embark on a bus and go on the road leading to the coast, crossing the Corinth Canal and following the shoreline to the great theater in Epidavros. The barriers of stone are carved into the rock, leading to the stage located far away. Beyond the theater, you can see the olive field, the rocky coast and the sparkling sea. A short trip will lead to Mycenae, where you will find the imposing Lions Gate and Agamemnon’s tomb, then go in the afternoon through the steep hills of Peloponnesus to arrive in Olympia at sunset. The next day, explore the sandy tracks of the stadium and temples of the birthplace of the Olympics, then head to the north and you get back in mainland Greece, because after a while, to arrive at the final destination, Delphi, where a priestess was the oracle of the sun god, Apollo.
