Our Itinerary

We flew into Athens (2 nights), then rented a car and drove to Delphi (1 night), then continued along the west coast (1 night) to the Zagoria region of Greece (2 nights). After Meteora (1 night), we hit the east coast of Greece (1 night), then headed back to drop off the car and catch a ferry to and from Samos (1 week).
