Different type of vacations
A great choice of vacations is available in Greece. There are so many different places you can choose from between the mainland and the classical sites of Peloponnese, or the monasteries of the North, or the most famous islands such as Crete and Santorini, or some small less known little islands with one quaint village and an idyllic beach such as Hydra or Poros. Greece is spreading over 3 different seas: the Ionian sea, the Eolian sea, and the Mediterranean sea.
Back to the Ancient times
If you are passionate about mythology, antiquity, archeology, or philosophy, no doubt that Greece is on your “bucket list”. Visiting the cradle of Western Europe will open your mind to realize how much our politics and culture have been influenced by Ancient Greece and its first great thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle and Socrates. Most sciences have their roots in Greece as well as Democracy. A 4 day classical tour of the Peloponnese will allow you to go through centuries of history, revive the stories of the Gods of Mount Parnassus, understand in Olympia the origins of todays’ Olympic Games, experience the most perfect acoustic of Epidaurus where comedies and dramas were played, telling stories which are still in fashion today.
Athens, Islands and Greek Cruises
You trip will usually start and finish in Athens. A minimum of 2 days is necessary to appreciate the cobble streets of Plaka, the various constructions part of the Acropolis and overall the perfection of the Parthenon, a 5th century BC temple.
Our philosophy tours can include English speaking conversations in a “cafe philo style” as well as walks in the Agora experiencing the argumentations of the Socratic method.
The Greek island cruise last usually a one week. The 7 days sea route can be divided in a 3 day plus 4 day cruise, depending on the time you dispose. They cover mostly the Agean sea including Crete and the coast of Turkey. Most ships are usually no more that 400 passengers. They are very comfortable and convivial. They run from April through October but do not operate in the winter season.
