Greece’s cultural riches, from the glorious remnants of ancient civilizations to a palate-pleasing bounty of wine, olives and seafood, await you on this eight-night journey to Athens and Gytheio!

Explore the fortified Bronze Age citadel of Mycenae and discover a one-of-a-kind treasure, mountainside Mystras, an important center of Byzantine culture.
During your stay in charming, seaside Gytheio, enjoy coastal life and get to know the Mani, a region known for its independent spirit, stone tower houses and beautiful beaches, plus journey to Monemvasia, a stunning, medieval walled city on an island. A wine tasting and a fun-filled dinner with music and dancing complement this well-rounded, small-group experience!
