Today you will drive through the fertile plain of Boeotia, crossing the towns of Thebes linked to the tragedy of King Oedipus, Levadia and Arachova. Thereafter you will arrive at Delphi, the center of Ancient World. Then the journey continues to the slopes of Mount Parnassus. In a landscape of unparalleled beauty and grandeur, lie the ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo Pythios. Here you will visit the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of Apollo and the Museum with masterpieces of Ancient Greek sculpture including the bronze Charioteer and the famous athlete Aghias.

DAY 4:  ATHENS – POROS – HYDRA – AEGINA – ATHENS
This morning you will be transferred to Piraeus for embarkation on a three island cruise. The first stop will be on Poros, the smallest of the three Saronic islands on this cruise. The island is covered with pine and lemon trees. Here you can enjoy a beautiful walk up to the clock tower and admire the panorama.

Then the cruise continues to Hydra which is considered to be the “smartest” of the Greek islands and is a favourite resort of the International “Jet Set”. The unique architecture of its houses, the pedestrian narrow streets full of boutiques, exclusive jewellery and handicrafts attracts both shoppers and photographers. There are no cars in Hydra, and saddled donkeys are the traditional mode of transport used for both people and goods on the island.

Then sail to Aegina which is the biggest island you will be visiting and the second-largest in the Saronic Gulf. It is home to two important archaeological sites: a large Cathedral dedicated to St. Nektarios and the Temple of Afea. Whilst exploring the island you will find a wonderful fish market, a unique floating fruit market and an economy based chiefly on pistachio nuts. Thereafter the cruise returns to Piraeus and you will be transferred to your hotel.
