Waiting times at passport control may be affected on departure from and arrival into Greece. You should ensure you arrive at the airport in good time.

Overview

4 days/3 nights From only £496pp

Begin by taking in the impressive skyline from the Pnyx placing the ancient architecture in context to the bustling modern capital. The New Acropolis Museum houses many artefacts from the sanctuaries that were founded on the slopes of the Acropolis. Step back into the Agora, where the success of the ancient city is richly illustrated. Ossos Loukas is referred to as one of the most important monuments of the Byzantine world, therefore it is not to be missed! Journey onto Delphi to the infamous Temple of Apollo, and spend the final night in Tolo, a town retaining its traditional charm.
