Athens, Corinth Canal, Epidauros, Nauplio, Mycenae, Sounion, Aegina
Athens – Athens is a fascinating ancient yet modern metropolis where the Parthenon and its ancient marble columns rise from its hilltop base in the center of the city. It is architectural perfection built 2,500 years ago but remains the eternal center to a bustling capital city that has been built around it.
Corinth Canal – Fly above this unique canal where ships seem to barely squeeze through. It is just 21.3 meters wide and tall, rocky earth flanks the canal on each side. The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It is stunning to see it from above.
Mycenae – Once a glorious and powerful city in Ancient Greece, Mycenae is a fantastic archeological site. It was once a military stronghold which according to Homer was “a city rich in gold”.
Nafplio – Overlooking the Argolic Gulf, this picturesque sea facing town was the first capital of Greece from 1821 until 1834. The fortress and castle of Palamidi was built in the 17th century by the Venetians on a 216-meter high hill. The city itself is a beautiful maze of bougainvillea lined paths, neoclassical influences and large picturesque squares.
