Greece, the cradle of Western Civilization, boasts a storied history of more than 5000 years.
This study travel program will follow in the footsteps of three famous and influential figures of antiquity, Philip II of Macedon (the father of Alexander the Great), Alexander the Great, and St. Paul. Highlights of the tour will include visits to the Royal Tomb of Philip at Vergina (perhaps the greatest archaeological find of the 20th Century), the important Macedonian cities of Pella and Thessaloniki, and several sites visited by St. Paul, including Athens, Philippi, Lydia, Thessaloniki, and Ephesus (Turkey). We will tour other important ancient sites, including Delphi, Thermopylae (the 300 Spartans!), the monasteries on the cliffs of Meteora, as well as the islands of Thassos, Samos, and Patmos (where St. John the Evangelist wrote the Apocalypse).
As always, we will, on a daily basis, encounter modern Greek society, with plenty of opportunities for sharing good food, excellent fellowship (what the Greeks call “parea”), and plenty of Greek dancing!
