One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
Parthenon has been added to your itinerary. Popular historic sites such as Acropolis of Athens and Temple of Hephaestus are in your itinerary. Museum-lovers will appreciate Acropolis Museum and Technopolis City of Athens. There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Temple of Olympian Zeus, wander the streets of Monastiraki, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Cycladic Art, and see the interesting displays at Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum.

Ancient Greeks revered Delphi as the center of their universe, building an impressive sanctuary to Apollo in order to mark this sacred spot.
On the 9th (Sat), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tholos, then steep yourself in history at Temple of Apollo, then take an in-depth tour of Delphi Archaeological Museum, and finally contemplate the long history of Delphi. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 10th (Sun): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Byzantine Church of Agia Eleousa (Panagia Mavromantila), take in the awesome beauty at Parnassus, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Hosios Loukas.
