As the birthplace of the Minoan civilization, Crete takes you to sites such as the minoan Palace of Knossos and the Minoan Pheastos. As well, you can check out intriguing museums such as the Archeological museum of Heraklion.
Delos is another great island for exploring historical sites and it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Although the island was never actually inhabited, it was constituted as a holy Island from Greek mythology, as this was the place the god Apollo was born. Of what remains, you can find a theater, many mosaics and statues on the island.
Just a few hours west of Athens, this historical gem displays the splendor of the Bronze age. Situated between two hills lies the Mycenae and its spectacular 14th century palace, which is built around an enormous central hall. The city also contains the Archaeological Site of Tomb Agamemnon, which is one of the best preserved of the tholos tombs.
The Oracle of Delphi
Another short ride away from Athens, is the UNESCO world heritage site in Delphi. Spend the day exploring the temple of Apollo, which was once home to a legendary oracle. Then head into the Delphi Archaeological Museum to see ancient artifacts that were discovered amongst the ruins.

Excellent! Everything went as planned throughout the whole process. He really listened to what we wanted and nailed it! Everything down to the last detail, including private transportation to and from airport, ferries, hotels and tours were prearranged and went off without a hitch. Even though he had given us a detailed itinerary in advance, it exceeded our expectations when seen in person. The hotels were all great. The drivers where always there on time. The tours were awesome. He even met us in person at our first hotel and checked in with us a couple times to make sure everything was going well. Antonis was great. We can't thank him enough for the stress-free wonderful package he put together for us!Read More Read More Less
