Gods, Heroes, Monsters and Kings

Visit the Treasures of Ancient Greece

The stories and legends, customs and politics of the ancient Greek world continue to echo through the ages. How did a rowdy group of rival kingdoms dominate the Aegean for so many centuries? On this journey of discovery, we explore classical Athens, a city whose golden age led to astonishing advances in art, philosophy, science, and politics; take a pilgrimage to Delphi where we encounter the cult of Apollo; cross the Gulf of Corinth and travel into the Peloponnesian hills where hero Hercules began his twelve tasks and King Agamemnon set out to rescue Helen and capture Troy.

In-Depth Tour

This in-depth exploration covers all of the ‘greatest hits’ of the Greek world – gods, heroes, monsters, and kings from Achilles’ heel to Herculean struggle.

Expert Led

You will be guided by Dr Rita Roussos, who has taught archaeology and art history at the American University of Athens and has worked on Greek archaeological sites.
