Antiquity to Byzantium Cruise

12 November 2021

8 days from £3,259pp

Trace the legendary footsteps of gods and heroes and discover the wondrous landscape of the Peloponnese peninsula on this cruise voyage
Trace the legendary footsteps of gods and heroes and discover the wondrous landscape of the Peloponnese peninsula, shaped by myth and man in equal measure. This magical region still bears tangible traces of the many great civilisations that have called it home. Our time here will illuminate the period beginning with the Golden Age of Greece, through the Roman conquest to the rise of the mighty Byzantine Empire. In the company of an expert lecturer, wander through the stadium at Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic Games, explore the spectacular ruins of Mycenae and experience the revered site of Delphi, once considered to be the centre of the world, besides much more. A crossing through the Corinth Canal, a comparatively recent, though no less spectacular innovation, is a fitting way to draw this voyage of discovery to a close.
