Arrive at Delphi, the center of Ancient World - the "Omphalos" (Navel of Earth) - whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic World. On the slopes of Mount Parnassus, in a landscape of unparalleled beauty and majesty, lie the ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo Pythios.

Breakfast at hotel and drive to Olympia, crossing the magnificent bridge from Antirion to Rion. Olympia is the cradle of the Olympic Games. You can visit the Archeological site with the Sanctuary of Olympian Zeus, the Ancient Stadium and the Archeological Museum. The sanctuary of Olympia, in the Northwest of the Peloponnese, in the Regional Unit of Eleia (Elis), has been established in the valley created by the confluence of the Alpheios and Kladeos rivers in a natural setting of beauty and serenity. The Pan-Hellenic sanctuary has been established in the history of culture, as the most important religious, political and sports center, with a history that dates back to the end of the Neolithic times (4th millennium BC). The famous sanctuary became the center of worship of Zeus, the father of the twelve Olympian gods. For the Altis, the sacred grove and the center of the sanctuary, some of the most remarkable works of art and technique have been created, constituting a milestone in the history of art. Great artists, such as Pheidias, have put their personal stamp of inspiration and creativity, offering unique artistic creations to the world. In this universal place, the Olympic Idea was born, making Olympia a unique universal symbol of peace and competition at the service of virtue. Here, too, prominence was given to the ideals of physical and mental harmony, of noble contest, of how to compete well, of the Sacred Truce; values, which remain unchanged in perpetuity. Accommodation in Olympia area.

Breakfast at hotel and departure to Sparti area. Located on the southeastern side of Peloponnese, Sparti is a small town with famous history. Ancient Sparta was mostly a military city-state. The inhabitants believed that their only purpose in life was to become strong soldiers and protect their homeland even with their lives. A Spartan should be strong in body, healthy in mind and brave in character. They believed that the bravest death was the death in the battlefield. The site of Ancient Sparta is located close to the modern city center, one of the few Greek towns built with an architectural urban space. Accommodation in Sparta area.

Breakfast at hotel and today you will have the possibility to visit Mystras.
Mystras, the ‘wonder of the Morea’, lies in the southeast of the Peloponnese. The town developed down the hillside from the fortress built in 1249 by the prince of Achaia, William II of Villehardouin, at the top of a 620 m high hill overlooking Sparta. The Franks surrendered the castle to the Byzantines in 1262, it was the centre of Byzantine power in southern Greece, first as the base of the military governor and from 1348 as the seat of the Despotate of Morea. Captured by the Turks in 1460, it was occupied thereafter by them and the Venetians. After 1834 the inhabitants of Mystras gradually started to move to the modern town of Sparta leaving only the breath-taking medieval ruins, standing in a beautiful landscape.
