    Stop At: Archaeological Museum of Thebes, Threpsiadou 1 Plateia Keramopoulou, Thiva 33200 Greece

    The Archaeological Museum of Thebes is one of the most important museums of Greece since some of its collections are rare or unique. The exhibits originate from excavations all around Boeotia and cover a long chronological period spanning from the Palaeolithic to the Post Byzantine periods. Considered as one of the best museums in Greece as it also respect its environment, at its yard a Byzantine tower can be visited, while under your feet you can admire through glass floor the ruins of the Bronze Age Acropolis.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Thiva, Thiva, Boeotia Region, Central Greece

    Walk around Thebes / Thiva, a town in central Greece that combines modern life with its glorious past. The Mycenaean Palace, or Kadmeion, dates from the 13th century BC and is located almost centrally on the acropolis. The palace was decorated with frescoes and clay tablets in Linear B and amphorae and was destroyed by fire in around 1200 BC.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Karababa Castle, Khalkis 34100 Greece

    An Ottoman castle of the 17th century built on the "continental" coast of the city of Chalkis (it is not on the island of Evia) which together with the destroyed castle of Chalkis made the city impregnable.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Bridge of Khalkis, Khalkis Greece

    The tidal phenomenon of Chalkida, observed in the famous Evripos Channel, is a very rare phenomenon of a change of direction in the flow of the sea currents. This phenomenon has provoked the admiration and interest of humans from ancient times, not only from an astronomical and geophysical perspective but also a philosophical one.
    The mystery and beauty of this phenomenon captivates the visitor, as its combination with the imprint of the channel creates a remarkable panorama.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Khalkis, Khalkis, Euboea Region, Central Greece

    Thanks to its strategic geographic position, the city has remained a crossroad of cultures and ideas over the centuries, an apple of discord for many foreign conquerors. Today the cosmopolitan city of Chalkida, the administrative and commercial centre of the island built on both sides of Evripos straits, is a popular destination among Athenians for short breaks away from the hustle and bustle of the capital city. Thanks to its impressive ultra-modern cable bridge, the access to the city has now become easier and quicker. It provides a variety of restaurants to enjoy your lunch by the sea.
