Acropolis 

The Parthenon, Temple of Goddess Athena, sits 450 feet above the city as a symbol of the Golden Era. It bears the architectural signature that established the precise measurements for all classical architecture that followed.

The Lions Gate, and the walls of Tiryns are examples of the noteworthy architecture found in Mycenae. Greek architecture and urban planning have been significantly influenced by the Mycenaean civilization. The accomplishments of the Mycenaean civilisation in art, architecture, and technology, which inspired European cultures, are also on display at both locations.

Oracle of Delphi 

Delphi, one of the most extensive archeological sites we will visit, is the place where historically, kings and generals came to ask big questions about the fate of their city and people, their health and the future. The summer breeze carries the scent of oregano and thyme while the mountains and oracle itself pulse with powerful energy.

Nafplio

The first capitol of the country, Nafplio's old town is a gem and hence a world destination and a favorite getaway for all Athenians. The old town and the castle create a dream like atmosphere and are ideal for hours of walking the cobble stone narrow roads filled with shops, boutiques, and amazing restaurants.

A powerful site of healing where Hippocrates established his first "hospital" and "retreat center" tending to the patient's holistically: mind, body, and spirit. The stadium was designed for physical practices, the theatre for arts to help heal the mind, and temple of meditation for the soul.
