Greece > Mainland Marvels
From the southern tip of the Peloponnese to the nothern reaches of Thrace and Macedonia, we can take you to any corner of the mainland. At sites such as Olympia, Mycenae, and Delphi, you will leave with cultural riches far greater than any golden treasure. Lesser known sites, from the oracle of Dodoni to the sacred Macedonian site of Dion, at the foot of Mount Olympus, to the heartland of Alexander the Great's empire will leave you equally facinated. Byzantine sites such as Meteora and Mystras, along with Ottoman outposts like loannina, show you that there is more to the history and culture of Greece than just the ancient world. Explore the landscape that shaped the history of this land: from the Pindos mountains to lush Mt. Pelion to teh wild and rugged Pelopennese. Get to know modern Greece through the lovely villages that will capture your heart: from costal towns like Nauplion and Kavala to remote villages tucked into the rugged mountains like Kalavruta and Makrynitsa. What's more, many of our mainland itineraries include picturesque coastal islands like Odysseus' Ithika and cosmopolitan Corfu in the Ionian Sea, artistic Hydra in the Saronic Gulf, scenic Skiathos in the Sporades, and the off-the-beaten-path Samothrace and theraputic Thassos in the northern Aegean. Put all these factors together, and you will find trips so exciting, so enriching, so unique, that there is no better way to see these mainland marvels.
