Day Trip - Delphi

After the Acropolis, Delphi is the most popular archaeological site in Greece. Located 180 kilometers from Athens, a trip to Delphi is listed in just about every tour itinerary and is by far the most popular day trip out of Athens. Delphi has a special meaning, more than just another ruins ... With Olympia's once majestic temple columns toppled like a tower of checkers by an earthquake, the site is as evocative (with the help of its excellent museum) as anything from ancient times. And you just have to play "On your mark, get set ... go!" on that original starting block from the first Olympic Games in 776 B.C.

Day Trip - The island of Hydra

Just a quick hop from the mainland, gave our trip a fine island paradise finale. Hydra, so close to Athens (with a direct 2.5-hour hydrofoil connections about hourly), is amazingly laidback and real, with just enough tourism to make it fun and lively.
