Program #6480RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
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.

The Iliad And The Odyssey
The epic poetry of Homer continues to draw the modern reader. Explore the myth and history of his works; meet Agamemnon, Odysseus and Helen, whose face launched a thousand ships. Lovers of literature, poetry, and classics will enjoy this adventure.

The Greek Philosophers
Plato? Aristotle? Heraclitus? Just who were these philosophers whose names we keep hearing, but never quite got to know? Meet the thinkers who began the stream of western thought and discover why their quest continues to exert a profound influence.

Experience Greece Without Leaving The USA
Experience the sights, sounds and taste of modern Greece. Learn about Greek traditions, culture, folklore and cuisine. Listen to Greek music and learn basic Greek dances. This is wonderful preparation for a trip to Greece!
