10 days
Athens, Delphi region, Meteora region, Thessaloniki

Welcome to Greece—a country of historical heroes, mythological legends, and iconic landscapes.

Your epic saga begins in Athens, a city as beautiful as it is old. Then, escape the city to Delphi, where Alexander the Great asked the oracle of Apollo who would be the fairest conqueror of them all (spoiler: it was him). Explore the undiscovered capital of northern Greece, marvel at the snowcapped peaks of Mt. Olympus, and eat feta everywhere in between. This is Greece. This is history come to life.
