ATHENS seven-day/six-night Cultural and Historical Tour

ATHENS seven-day/six-night Cultural and Historical Tour

During this six-day programme and if the travellers are in a group comprising ten people or more, we can also optionally arrange for lunch or dinner during a fabulous daily cruise, where specialist academic speakers present aspects of culture, history, archaeology, geo-politics and related themes with respect to Athens and the wider region.
