Classical Greece Tour
Some journeys are essential to take at least once in a lifetime, and they deserve to take priority in our future tourism plans.
Greece is one of these must-see destinations, thanks to the profoundly significant history which still forms part of its extraordinary heritage. 2,500 year ago, Greece became the pinnacle of civilization, art and philosophy in the culture of the old continent, and it remains intensely influential to this day.
We could describe Greece as the ‘grandparent of Europe’, and it seems natural to feel a need and desire to one day visit the country and experience it for ourselves, rather than through clichés and travellers’ tales.
If you choose the Classical Greek Tour with In Travel, you can expect a legendary voyage, a delightful encounter with our earliest and most authentic roots in history.
This Classical Greek Tour by In Travel leaves from the city of Athens, visiting the Peloponnese region, the Corinth canal, Olympia, Delphi and the Monasteries of Meteora.
These are the most iconic and renowned destinations of Greece, the mythical places that the world’s most discerning travellers want to see for themselves, and feel for a few days that they are part of this cradle of Western civilisation.
For these reasons, In Travel offers the seductive option of combining all its tours of Classical Greece, in a single route: in turn, we will tour the Corinth canal, tour Olympia, tour the Peloponnese, and visit the shrines of Delphi and the mystical Meteora Monasteries.
