Spectacular Greece

Athens, Mycenae, Nafplio, Olympia & Delphi

The Greeks have a word for a feeling that expresses joy, fun, passion, and loving life: kefi. On our guided Greece land tour, we’ll explore the country’s classical cities starting and ending in the heart of the Grecian Empire, Athens. We’ll visit must-sees like the Acropolis, Parthenon, the ancient theater of Epidaurus, and the ruins of Olympia. We’ll also visit the medieval town of Nafpaktos and enjoy some free time in the romantic city of Nafplio, and the ski resort town of Arachova, nestled in the mountains. Before our journey ends, we’ll visit a family-run winery where we’ll survey the vineyard, see the barrel aging cellar, and taste wine made from Greek grape varieties. As we take in ancient archeological sites and picturesque landscapes, our smarTours guide brings the fascinating history and rich culture of Greece to life.
