Route Markers

The order of departure from Campo San Vio are as follows:

  1. Matt & Redmond (11:15 am)
  2. Becca & Floyd (12:08 pm)
  3. Tara & Joey (12:28 pm)
  4. Brooke & Scott (1:01 pm)
  5. London & Logan (1:02 pm)
  6. Liz & Michael (1:11 pm)

Teams must fly to Bari, then take a ferry to Patras, Greece. Upon arrival, teams must drive themselves to Arachova and find a wedding party at Kaplanis Taverna, where they would find their next clue.

At Kaplanis Taverna, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Brooke & Scott used the first slot of the U-Turn on Liz & Michael. Tara & Joey used the second slot of the U-Turn on Becca & Floyd.

Since Liz & Michael completed the For the Bride Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the For the Groom Detour before continuing.

Since Becca & Floyd completed the For the Bride Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the For the Groom Detour before continuing.

Choice A: For the Bride
Teams must transport two tin containers of sheep's milk on a donkey to two local cheese-makers around town, who would give them a piece of cheese in exchange of their container. Once they have both pieces of cheese, they must return to the wedding party at Kaplanis Taverna and give them to the bride, who would give them a plate, which they must break open to retrieve their next clue.

All teams chose this task.


Choice B: For the Groom
Teams must wear a sporting costume and compete in a footrace with locals up the 252-step Egarsios Steps and past the Church of Saint George to a shepherd, who would give teams a goat and a sheep. They must then carry the animals back to the wedding party at Kaplanis Taverna and give them to the groom, who would give them a plate, which they must break open to retrieve their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, where they would find their next clue.

At Panathenaic Stadium, Liz & Michael would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. Liz & Michael must find a marked food truck and prepare a traditional skewered dish called kokoretsi by wrapping sections of meat with intestines to the chef's standards, before being allowed to continue.

Teams must run a lap around the Panathenaic Stadium to receive their next clue.

Teams must make their way on foot to the Zappeion, where they would find their next clue.

"Who thinks they can step in time?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must become a member of the guard outside the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and learn how to perform the changing of the guard routine done by Presidential Guard. Once they have performed the routine in sync with a guard to the command instructor's satisfaction, they would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to the Acropolis of Athens and search the vicinity for the mat, located at the Areopagus, to check in.
For coming in first place, Tara & Joey each won $7,500.
