Then, discover the seaside charm of Nauplio, with its historic fortress and scenic views, ending your journey at Epidaurus' famed ancient theatre.keytours2 (1).jpg

Day 3: Delphi & Arachova

You should spend 1 of your 5 days in Greece discovering the esoteric mysteries of the Delphi oracle. The Delphi One Day Trip lets you delve into this UNESCO-listed archaeological site and follow that up with a visit to Arachova - one of Greece’s most bucolic villages, in the shadows of Parnassos Mountain.  keytours5 (1).jpg

Day 4: Meteora & Trikala

These breathtaking monasteries perched atop towering, ancient rock formations will take your breath away. At just 30 minutes away, Trikala is a noteworthy destination, as it is one of north Greece’s most beautiful cities.

Spotlight on the dreamy Santorini - discover the quintessential charm of this iconic destination on a Caldera & Oia Sunset Boat tour with stops at the volcanic islands of Nea Kameni, Palea Kameni and Thirassia, which includes a delicious Greek lunch and an invigorating swim.

Also, check what to see and do if you are looking at 4 days in Greece, where it might make sense to deep dive into two destinations: Athens and Thessaloniki.
