  • From Athens: Ancient Corinth & Daphni Monastery

    1. From Athens: Ancient Corinth & Daphni Monastery

    After your morning pick-up from your centrally located hotel, the bus will drive to Corinth via Iera Odos (the Sacred Way). It was so-called this because it was the route taken by a procession celebrating the Eleusinian Mysteries. Initiations were held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based in Eleusis. Your first stop will be the Monastery of Daphni, a 11th-century Byzantine monastery listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the Monasteries Hosios Loukas and Nea Moni of Chios. The interior of the church is decorated with superb mosaics, a unique, fine example of the classical idealism of Middle Byzantine art. The crowded scenes of the mosaics narrate scenes from the life of Christ and the Virgin.  Driving along the coastal road, reach Corinth Canal, which merges the Aegean with the Ionian Sea (short stop for photos of the breathtaking view). Shortly therea...

    The trip was well-organized. The guide was knowledgeable and informative. The mini-bus was comfortable and there were wi-fi charging stations for each seat.

    Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. We were not aware that he could not accompany us into the various sites due to licensing regulations and this was bit of a disappointment though he g do I’d explain to us beforehand the key highlights and things we should look for. Overall this was an incredibly rich day of antiquities viewing and I would highly recommend it for ardent lovers of ancient history. It is a very full day with so much to see. Those with only a passing “touristic desire to see the beauty of the ancient world might not find it as interesting or satisfying. On a logistical note our guide was terrifically accommodating and made the trip entirely to our liking once he gushed our interest and knowledge level.
