Introducing Ancient Greece


Price TBC

Activity Level:


It is fair to say that Europe, even in the name it is given, has been shaped by Greece – and by extension much of the world. The democracy, philosophy, theatre and art and architecture we take for granted was largely first developed by a disparate group of Greek city states, each with its own sense of identity. This tour offers the highlights of this extraordinary part of the world from the Bronze Age to the glories of the Classical period. Nothing can prepare you for the delights of the Athenian Acropolis with its wonderful museum and the iconic Parthenon. You will also visit Mycenae with its cyclopean architecture so reminiscent of the Bronze Age brought to life by Homer. Finally, you will also be able to delight in the seaside town of Nafplio, with its gorgeous Venetian inspired architecture.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore the Athenian Acropolis, with its staggering monuments and museum
  • Explore Mycenae, centre of the Late Bronze Age, with its imposing Lion’s Gate and tombs
  • View the evocative remains at the Argive Sanctuary of Hera, one of the most important in Greece
