Ship:
Venture to the epicenters of ancient Western Civilization during this pairing of guided Delphi and Meteroa tours and an extensive Greek Isles cruise. Explore the high halls of medieval Meteora monasteries perched on clifftops. Delve into tales of Titans, Olympians and early deities as you step between limestone blocks hewn by hand, etched by turmoil and strewn among the angular shadows of the Parthenon’s marble pillars. Raise your voice and test perfect acoustics in classical amphitheaters near the storied Temple of Delphi and the Epidaurus Theatre. Pull up a bar stool at a bustling estiatorio and sample grilled pita bread paired with a creamy spread of tangy taramasalata-- pureed blend of potato, lemon juice and briny local fish roe.
