Greece: Off-The-Beaten Road

Dec 10, 2022

Everyone knows Greece for its magical islands, golden sandy beaches and never-ending summer, but did you know that Greece has another hidden side of raw beauty that is waiting to be explored? BlissTravel designs exclusive off-the-beaten-road experiences that combine luxury with the real, authentic side of Greece!

DAY 1 & 2 (Athens) 
Begin this wondrous journey from Athens, the historically famous Greek capital where democracy was born and where great philosophers lived in ancient times. 
Spend 2 days in the company of a professional licensed archaeologist, strolling around the streets of the city centre and Plaka, visiting the Agora, the Acropolis hill and modern museum and unfolding all the secrets and legends behind some of the greatest monuments in the entire world! 

DAY 3 & 4 (Saronic Gulf & Olympia) 
Everyone knows the islands of Mykonos & Santorini but few are aware that near Athens one can find some of the most picturesque little isles in the country. Take a full-day trip on a private yacht to the cosmopolitan Hydra & Aigina and treat yourself to a traditional lunch at the local restaurants of Poros. From here on, the journey continues to the beautiful peninsula of Peloponnese. Head to the sacred site of Ancient Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games and marvel at the archaeological remnants that lay there before stopping at the enchanting village of Kardamili. 

DAY 5 & 6 (Mani & Monemvasia) 
These two days will be all about exploring and getting to know the true side of Greece. Discover the Kardamili village and be introduced to the local life and traditions. Travel to the astonishing village of Mani and take a glimpse of the glorious medieval towers of Vatheia. Spend the next day visiting the charming castle of Monemvasia island located in the southeast part of Peloponnese. The island used to be a might fortress during the 10th century and it now embodies several stunning Byzantine churches!

DAY 7 & 8 (Nafplio & Epidaurus)  
Head to Nafplio, a coastal city which is considered a more touristic destination, especially among Greeks. Wander around its colourful streets and don’t forget to check out the Palamidi fortress and the Bourtzi Venetian castle. When staying at Nafplio, visiting Epidaurus & Mycaene is a must-tour activity for every visitor. Both locations are UNESCO World Heritage sites and for good reason since they have been impressively preserved for thousands of years carrying along the glory of Greek Ancient history. 

On the last day, reach Athens and its International airport to depart and return home full of new memories and meaningful encounters. And like this, an awe-inspiring and unique journey to Greece comes to end!
