Come join us for a visit to beautiful Northern Greece! We will visit the ancient city of Athens with its ancient ruins, beautiful Plaka District, a Greek cooking lesson, and have free time of your own to enjoy this exciting city. We will then travel through the inland areas of Greece with exceptional natural beauty to the ancient city of Thessaloniki to enjoy the beautiful beaches as well as a guided and walking tours of the area. From Thessaloniki, we will visit Pella, ancient capital of King Archelaus of Macedonia and birthplace of Alexander the Great, and Vergina in the foothills of Mt. Pieria, the first capital of ancient Macedonia, and the site of the Royal Tombs. We will then travel to the amazing clifftop monasteries of Meteora in central Greece. Monks and hermits have found refuge in this unique rock formation for more than a thousand years. Six Eastern Orthodox monasteries—some dating back to the 14th century—are still home to a small number of monks and nuns. An overnight in Delphi before visiting the site of the Oracle of Delphi, the ruins, and the temple of Apollo, and we will be back in Athens to end a wonderful trip. Hope you can join us for all the food, fun, beauty, culture, and history this program will provide!
