Greece

Months we visit: August, September, October, April, May

The Greek mainland and its islands are at the centre of Voyages to Antiquity's programme. Our itineraries trace the history of this remarkable country from the earliest Mycenaean settlements and the rise of the Golden Age of Athens to the historical legacy of Venetian and Ottoman Empires. Our itineraries also ensure that you do not miss out on the extraordinary natural beauty that the Aegean has to offer: cruising the islands is one of the great experiences of travel. As the birthplace of so much of Western civilisation, Greece is a truly unique and inspiring place.
