Explore the riches of Greece and Italy, through Athens on to Olympia, then over to Rome, Naples and Milan, a visit consisting of these southern European countries that are breathtakingly surrounded by Mediterranean seas.
Greece is most famous for its archaeological finds and significance in antiquity, but many visitors are astounded to learn this scenic, sun-drenched country also includes about 1,400 islands and more than 7,500 caves, many of which contain subterranean rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. Complementing this varied geographic wonder are the mountain ranges such as the Pindus and the waters of the Mediterranean, the Aegean, and the Saronic Gulf linking Attica (Athens areas and its port Piraeus) to the Peloponnese.
