Take ten days to explore some of the less-visited corners of mainland Greece with this itinerary. This faster-paced trip is ideal for families with school-age children, especially those who have been to Greece before and want to see a different side of the country. You'll still start in Athens, but after a mythology-filled tour through the Botanical Gardens, you'll head out to the historic sites of Meteora and Delphi. See the seaside city of Nafpaktos and natural wonders around the Corinthian Gulf before you head home.
Along the way, you'll pass the tiny islands of Diporta and Alkyonides and gaze at idyllic beaches and small fishing villages. Stop to admire coastal archaeological sites, such as Heraion, a sanctuary dedicated to Goddess Hera. You'll also see the 19th-century Melagkavi Lighthouse and the narrow canal connecting Lake Vouliagmeni.
Your guide will make a stop at a white-sand beach with clear, turquoise water. Here, enjoy some free time to swim, play on the beach, or snorkel. Before heading back, you can snorkel and swim in the miniature cave called the Maltese Azure Window.
