Knowledgable local guides take the hassle out of navigating Athens. Head straight for the most incredible ancient sites, such as the Acropolis and the Temple of Olympian Zeus.. Experience a different side of Greece by staying in the medieval village of Dimitsana at our ‘feature stay’, a gorgeous 7th-century township set on top of two hills and a gorge in little visited Central Arcadia. Share a coffee or ‘Greek delight’ with a monk during a visit to nearby Prodromos monastery.. Visit the legendary theatres of the very first Olympic Games – the stadium, gymnasium, wrestling school, priest houses, temples and hippodrome. Discover the many flavours of Greek cuisine. There’s nothing quite like dining on rich and hearty moussaka or grilled lamb and tzatziki in a traditional taverna
Much like a fine baklava, modern day Greece is layered with history so rich and complex that the only way to do it justice is to see it for yourself. Learn how the spectacular hanging monasteries of Meteora protected modern Hellenic culture from invading Turks, then trace a path through tumble-down ruins in Delphi. Visit the site of the world’s first Olympics and stop in at pretty seaside villages in Nafplion. Board your Adventure Cruise and head to Santorini and Mykonos which lure sun-seeking crowds to their idyllic shores for good reason, but the collection of islands that make up the Cyclades are ripe with less-travelled gems. Cruise the Aegean Sea and take in these perennial favourites as well as charming hill villages and secluded beaches. Delve into the country’s rich history exploring ancient archaeological sites like Delos and Akrotiri. Spend a day in Turkey touring the ruins of Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Add a healthy helping of delicious Greek cuisine for an adventure you won’t soon forget.
