Have you ever dreamt of seeing the antiquities of ancient Greece? Now is your chance to participate in lectures and tours at the sites themselves! Join this dialogue to hear talks by Greek scholars and stay in beautiful hotels in places throughout Greece including Athens, Rhodes, the Jewish Synagogue, Crete, Santorini, the Peloponnese including Olympia, Delphi, and Nafplion. See for yourself where western civilization began, and also learn about the Greek/European economic/immigration crises, Greek literature, and the famous Greek diet. See places you have only heard of such as the Parthenon, Knossos, Acropolis of Lindos, 13th c. walled city of the Crusader Knights of St. John, and Olympia, Delphi, Mycenae, Epidaurus, Volcano of Santorini and Minoan ruins, and Vergina (site of Philip of Macedon’s grave). Special guests include Nicolas Gage, the President of Greece (probable), Leonidas Tsonis – PhD in Economics, and Haris Vlavianos, a famous Greek poet. Greece is very mountainous and this dialogue includes a few long bus rides – buckle up!
