Greece is a country without rival when it comes to bewitching travellers with ancient monuments, exciting legends, noteworthy legacies and romance. Our tour, though only nine days in duration, packs so much in that it promises to satiate the thirst of any intrepid traveller thirsty to explore Classical Greece, but be warned that it will also leave you hungry to come back for more. Our guides regale us with the histories of 6th century temples and 14th century fortresses, of stories of betrayal and assassination, of ancient rivalries and of paying homage to the gods. We visit Sparta, whose near-barbaric military training served to produce the most formidable army in ancient Greece and we spend some time in Olympia, where rival states laid down their arms and set aside their differences to participate in the ancient Olympic Games. Here we find the Stadium, the Temple of Hera and the Temple of Zeus, which once housed one of the seven wonders of the ancient world -- a gargantuan statue of the god Zeus. Via the Monasteries of Meteora, we travel to Thermopylae, the site of the great historical battle between the Spartan King Leonidas and the massive Persian army and we end this classic tour with exploration of Athens.
