You've seen photos of the ancient Acropolis in Athens, dating back to the 5th century BC—now’s your chance to see it in person. You've watched the Olympics on TV—now’s your chance to walk among the remains in Olympia, where the Olympics began in 776 BC. You've eaten at Greek restaurants—now's your chance to enjoy an authentic Greek cooking demonstration, where you'll learn how to make the traditional Greek tzatziki appetizer. All of this and more await you on this Classical Greece tour.

History comes alive on your guided visits to many of Greece's ancient sights. In addition to the Acropolis and Olympia, also visit ancient Corinth, dating back to the 8th century BC and the place where St. Paul preached; see the Beehive Tombs and Lion Gate in Mycenae; the amazingly well-preserved, 2,300-year-old open-air theater in Epidaurus; and Thermopylae, where the battle between the Greeks and Persians took place in 480 BC.

In Delphi hear about the Oracle and how people in ancient Greece would travel there to seek his wisdom. Tour the excavations, and visit its Archaeological Museum. In Meteora step back in history when you visit the fantastic landscape with its 24 rock-top monasteries.

In addition to all of these included sights, Globus has arranged some typical experiences for you to get a true sense of Greek life; like a sirtaki dance lesson or a glass of Ouzo. Plus, you'll be accompanied by an expert Tour Director who will bring this country to life by sharing its history, stories, and insider secrets.

From the picturesque fishing villages to ancient historic sights, this Greece tour is a vacation of a lifetime!
