Description

Greece has been a strategic crossroads since time immemorial and the legacy of its rich history is visible in the castles and archaeological sites with which adorn every corner of this magnificent country. The typical audience of this programme would include avid admirers and discerning connoisseurs of castles and fortresses, Classical Greek archaeology, history (Classical Greek, Byzantine, Frankish, Venetian and Ottoman) and also of natural beauty, who would relish the experience of seeing the most evocative sites and monuments in combination with the splendid nature of Greece at first hand. The 10-day tour includes visits to the Acrocorinthos acropolis of ancient Corinth, Niokastro, the castle of Pylos, the illustrious Ancient Olympia, Kyparissia castle, the impressive Methoni and Koroni castles, Kalamata and Androussa castles, the wonderful archaeological site of Ancient Messene, the remarkable castle-town of Monemvassia, the citadel of Mystras, Sparta, the picturesque sea-side town of Nafplio, the Palamidi fortress,  the sea-fort of Bourtzi, ancient Tiryns, and the illustrious ancient Mycenae. Accommodation is at specially-selected, European-standard city and country hotels. Transportation is by modern, air-conditioned coach whilst the venues for lunch and dinner have been carefully chosen to reflect the ancient Greek tradition where eating is central to social interaction and happy bonding.
