With Randall Stewart, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Classics, Department of Languages and Literature, University of Utah
Set sail an Aegean odyssey exploring the history and mythology of Athens and Greece's iconic islands.
From the shadow of the Acropolis we'll explore world-famous archaeological sites and savor the Mediterranean's rich flavors in the cradle of Western culture. We'll take you on guided visits to the iconic Parthenon and the award-winning Acropolis Museum (which includes an ongoing archaeological excavation in its "basement"). All the while, witnessing the power of Greek mythology on its history, architecture, and culture.
Journey through Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos with all inter-island travel and excursions provided. Our journey will take us sailing to quaint fishing villages, hiking the majestic narrows of the Samaria Gorge, uncovering the mysteries of the Minotaur of Knossos, savoring the vine of Santorini, and soaking in the crystal waters of the Mediterranean.
"Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The mythical knowledge of group leaders was a true cherry on top of an already delicious cake." -2016 Greece Trip Participant
