Cruise azure waters and explore the cities and sanctuaries of ancient Greece, beginning in Athens, where you will gaze upon the soaring columns of the Parthenon, discover the treasures of the National Archaeological and Acropolis Museums, and meander through the winding alleys of the Plaka. An overland journey takes you to Corinth, site of the spectacular Temple of Apollo, and to the World Heritage site of Epidaurus. Then, embark the intimate, 25-cabin Harmony V for a seven-night cruise along the stunning, sundrenched coast of the Peloponnese. Delve deeper into archaeology and ancient history with stops at Mycenae, Monemvasia, and Mystra. Explore Mt. Lykaion’s Sanctuary of Zeus, trace the origins of the Olympic Games to ancient Olympia, and meander the hillside of mystical Delphi. Conclude your journey with a transit of the towering Corinth Canal en route to Athens. Along the way, gain insights and perspectives on the archaeology and ancient history of Greece with two accompanying experts, Drs. Mary E. Voyatzis & David G. Romano
