See the highlights of ancient Greece on this gay group trip. With fellow LGBT+ travellers you will explore the likes of Sparta, Olympia, and Delphi, as well as the Peloponnese Peninsula.
Upon arrival at Athens Airport you will be transferred to a hotel near Plaka, the oldest part of the city. Feel free to explore the local area at your leisure before dining as a group at a restaurant.
Today you’ll meet an archaeologist guide to explore the ancient city of Athens. Beginning with Athens’ great Acropolis, you’ll then visit the National Archaeology Museum. Return to the hotel this afternoon and explore the area at your leisure. Tonight we will meet in the lobby before walking to a local restaurant to sample some Greek nouvelle cuisine.
After leaving Athens in the morning, you’ll cross the ancient man-made Corinth Canal to the Peloponnese region. Firstly, you’ll be stopping at the archaeological site of Corinth, previously one of the most important cities in Greece. Later, you will continue your journey to Nafplio, a seaside town with a medieval citadel. Here, you will spend the next two nights. Once again the afternoon can be spent at your leisure before dining as a group.
Epidaurus, a well-preserved, ancient Greek theatre, is your next destination. Then you will visit Mycenae, where the world of the Iliad was centred. Spend your evening relaxing, dining, or exploring, as there are no group activities scheduled tonight.
After breakfast your journey through Greece will continue onward to Sparta. Once you’ve explored Sparta’s iconic history sufficiently, you will continue to the southernmost part of the Peloponnese. Tonight you and your group will stay in one of the villages of the Mani Peninsula.
Today you can expect a leisurely drive through picturesque Greece, passing Aeropoli, Gerolimenas, Vathi, and Githeyo on the way.
Olympia is your main destination today, being the birthplace of the famous Olympic games there’s plenty to see here.
This morning will be spent travelling from Olympia to Delphi, crossing the Gulf of Corinth in the process. Your destination may be Delphi, but you’ll be staying in Arachova, a charming nearby village. Here you can stroll through the historic streets, dine at one of the many restaurants, or do some souvenir shopping.
Explore the ancient sites of Delphi, which was considered the most important religious centre of its time. Here, your group will follow the Sacred Walk up towards the Temple, passing historic buildings as you go. You will also visit the theatre of Delphi, situated above the Temple of Apollo. Dine independently tonight at one of the many eateries in Arachova.
As you near the end of your cultural tour of Greece, the group will return to Athens for a final day of touring. Here you will enjoy a farewell dinner together.
Today marks the end of your gay Greece group trip. Transfers to Athens Airport will be provided, unless you plan to participate in the optional extension to Mykonos.
