Greece is an iconic vacation destination – famous for its archaeological marvels, picture-perfect islands, delicious cuisines, and eighteen remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Sites – but there are so many additional treasures awaiting curious travelers. In the company of a local expert, together we will take a deep dive into ten can't-miss landmarks on the Greek mainland while we contextualize the country's rich historical legacy.

During our conversation, we will explore the highlight destinations on Greece's mainland – there is so much more to experience beyond Athens. We'll stop over in Macedonia, Thessaly, and Epirus on the way south to the Peloponnese, as well as additional destinations such as Delphi, Meteora, Olympia, Mycenae, and Epidaurus. We'll encounter major can't-miss famous landmarks within each of these archaeological sites and cities, but we'll also discuss hidden gems off the beaten path and reveal priceless travel tips travelers need to know before they go.

The second half of our time together will focus on matters such as the best time of year to visit without crowds, how long to stay, cultural faux-pas to avoid, how to efficiently move between islands, and how to sample all the must-try cuisines when we’re there. There will be time available for each guest to ask personalized questions at the presentation's conclusion.

Led by an expert in Greek History – and a local archaeologist and licensed guide – this interactive conversation will allow participants to make the most of their next Greek adventure. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with increased knowledge on how to prepare for their next one-of-a-kind journey to the jewel of the Mediterranea Sea.

Wonderful experience

Absolutely wonder to get an overview of the entire country and not just the top three spots. If I ever have the opportunity to visit, I can tell it won't be easy to choose where to visit.

Fantastic Lecture

This was a fabulous seminar on Greece. It was very organized by region. She not only gave us the top 10 highlights, but also included many "must-see" sights near each top 10. If you take this seminar, have pencil and pad ready as she gave us a lot of great information on what to see, the best way to get there and how much time to spend in each location. I especially appreciated her information on things not to do or say to Greek people as it may be offensive to them (but not to Americans).
