Best of Mainland Greece In-depth Cultural Tour

Our tour to Mystical Mainland starts from Athens, the capital of Civilization and of charming contradictions. We welcome you under the stars, with a dramatic view of the Acropolis and a delicious Greek dinner with chocolate pairing. Next day, you have a life changing experience with our in-depth private guided tour of Athens.Delving to Delphi we stumble into one of the most gorgeous valleys we have ever seen and touch one of the most stunning places of the world. Blending harmoniously with the superb landscape and charged with sacred meaning, Delphi in the 6th century BC was indeed the religious centre and symbol of unity of the ancient Greek world. At night we enjoy a private wine paring in a traditional bar of Arachova.We furthermore visit Nafpaktos, the seaside citadel, and enjoy a lunch in the shade of the plane trees with a view of the sea surrounded by the Venetian walls of its unique Castle. Off we go to Ioannina, one of the secret gem cities of the country. City life here revolves around the romantic, silver-grey Pamvotis lake which, according to geologists of Cambridge University, was formed between 20,000 and 26,000 years ago.We then visit Zagoria with the soul-stirring mountain vistas and those incredible skies which are patrolled by golden eagles, located high above the Vikos Gorge, the world’s deepest. Here, you will meet a different Greece at this crossroads of civilizations and landscapes in Western Greece, between the Pindos mountain range and the Ionian Sea. We visit one of the most stunning natural monuments in Greece and meet stone-built traditional villages, arched bridges, divine fountains and rare flowers and animals.We then reach Metsovo with its scenic mountain beauty and exquisite local wines of Katogi Averoff. More than 200 paintings and sculptures by the great Greek artists of the 19th and 20th century are exhibited at the Averoff Art Gallery, the town’s gem and the most significant focal point of culture in Epirus. Lytras, Gyzis, Volanakis, Parthenis, Hatzikyriakos-Gikas, Tsarouhis, Moralis and Fassianos are just a few of the big names in the collection housed in a spectacular building with three floors behind the towns’ main square.We finally arrive to Meteora where we will savor the slow down and the spirituality of the epic place. The extraordinary hanging monasteries cling to the sides of the cliffs and ensure only the most devoted followers will join them for prayer.Before we head back to Athens, we visit one of the first certified Greek biodynamic plantations of cereals and vegetables located just next to Larissa and enjoy a delicious local meal.
