    ,

This is where it all began – the literature, art and laws that have shaped western civilisation as we know it today. You won’t need to imagine great philosophers debating their truths in the corridors of the Agora, between the columns of the Parthenon or with the Oracle of Delphi. You’ll get to see where this happened first-hand on this 8-day adventure to the heart of ancient empires and the sun-kissed shores of the Greek Isles.
