Road Scholar
Program #12630RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

If you are interested in an immersion into Greek culture, language, dancing, art and the Byzantine era, this is definitely the Road Scholar program for you. I have a disability and was able to easily participate in all events.

This is the second program that we've attended at St. Nicholas Ranch in Dunlap, CA, and we are looking forward to being able to attend the third program that is offered there on Alexander.

This is a marvelous introduction to things Greek and Orthodox. The history of Byzantium unfolds in very attractive yet simply ways. The Monestery and the Sisters were welcoming and charming.

It was our 36th Elderhostel/Road Scholar program. We've never been to Greece so this was fun and interesting for us. We really enjoyed the st. Nicholas Ranch and especially going to the Monastary. Food was great and as always the people are terrific.
