Description


Home of the great philosophers, ancient Greece had to make our shortlist of programmes to offer. Culturally it's right up there, like Italy it has many 'living museums' for it's towns & cities, and also a culture and history that has shaped the world as we know it today. A great civilization that is so worthy of further exploration - so why not add ancient Greece to your European itinerary?
