Greece Private, drives through the fertile plain of Beotia, driving through the town of Thebes connected with the tragedy of king Oedipus and the town of Chaeroneia, where in 338 BC the battle between the southern Greek cities and King of Greek Macedonians Phillip took place. Alexander then 18 years old, was making his debut in battle. Short stop at the lion's monument, 24 feet high. Proceed to Levadia, a busy town and an important junction in the road network.

The upper town is graced by white houses with jutting wooden balconies dating from the 18th C. We'll stop for a drink by the beautiful river Karya over the spot where the water springs out. In ancient times, Karya was said to be the location of the Oracle of Trofonios Zeus which included the springs of  Mnemosyne (Remembrance) and the spring of Lethe (oblivion). The oracle was used as a stage before visiting the oracle of Delphi and as such, through the times, it acquired great power and riches.
