Micro climates, Islands and not to be missed sights
Continuing on from ‘Greece – The Peloponnese’ this tour takes in the other half of the country and extends your holiday for a further 14 nights.
We mix stays on the coast of the Pillion Peninsular and the charming island of Corfu with time inland. During our stay at Meteroa we have a guided tour around this wonderful area where the Greeks famously built their Monasteries precariously perched atop the local rock formations, a sight not to be missed.
In Ioannina we see Greece’s city of mixed traditions, from its well preserved Turkish quarter and ancient silver production through to its Lake Island and modern restaurants.
Then in Corfu we take an island tour including a visit to its capital Corfu Town and the picturesquely rugged resort of Paleokastritsa.
