RELIVE ANCIENT GREECE
The Wonders of Greece tour could easily be re-named the World Heritage Sites tour because you have the opportunity to see four World Heritage Sites in seven days — Epidavros Theatre, Ancient Mycenae, Ancient Olympia, Delphi home of oracles. En route you come across unheralded sites that may have an informational plaque, but more likely just a site name. There are too many mythic and historic sites in the Peloponnese for Greece to feature them all. No wonder Lonely Planet named the Peloponnese the #1 European destination in 2016.
Celebrate Greek Easter
on Santorini island

Easter is the most joyous occasion of all Greek holidays. The people have been fasting for forty days — some rigorously, others just avoiding meat — and they are ready for the traditional Sunday lamb on a spit. This follow Saturday midnight mass when the pappas lights the candle and everyone says Kristos Anesti and lights the candle of the person next to them. Then ear splitting fire crackers as you emerge from church. You don’t have to be religious to participate. The entire week is a wonderful immersion into Greek culture.
