5 Day Tour of Greece - Spotlight on Greece

If you’ve carried a torch for Greece before or since the 2004 Summer Olympics, then you’ll be even more smitten after these eight days. Herculean experiences in history and mythology await you: The Acropolis and the Parthenon in Athens, and the Temples of Zeus and Hera in Olympia, are among several ancient destinations. Plus, it’s all Greek to you, especially if you include some big, fat fun at our nearby Mykonos Island Resort.
