Teams must fly to Bari, where teams will then take a ferry to Patras, Greece. Upon arrival, teams must drive themselves to Arachova and find a traditional Greek wedding to search for their next clue.

At Arachova Town Square, 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, who they will exchange a container for cheese. Once they have both cheeses, they can give it to the bride for a plate with their next clue.

All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: For the Groom
Teams must wear a sporting costume and compete in a footrace with locals up 252 steps and past the church of St. George to a shepherd, who will hand teams a pair of goats. Teams can hand the goats over to the groom for a plate with their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens to find their next clue.

At Panathenaic Stadium, Liz & Michael would receive their clue for their Speed Bump.

Liz & Michael must prepare a piece of kokoretsi 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 travel on foot to the Zappeion to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to become a member of the guard outside the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and learn how to perform the changing of the guard, under a supervisory guard's watch. If the supervisor is satisfied with their choreography, teams will receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel to the Acropolis of Athens to check in.

For coming in first place, Tara & Joey each won $7,500.
