Tour Overview

Athens is one of the most historic cities in the world, among the oldest cities in Europe with a history of 3000 years. A fascinating town full of highlights and surprises. Visit the Acropolis museum and site and learn about Greek civilization. But remember that Athens is not just about antiquity; Athens will offer you plenty of opportunities to savour the best of the traditional Greek cuisine. Kalambaka is a picturesque town with narrow cobble-stoned streets and traditional houses, some of them built right next to the rocks and have a long tradition in the production of hand-made, wood-carved objects, but also in the making of religious icons that are painted by domestic artists.
