Experience Greece from a fresh, exciting perspective, immersing yourself in ancient wonders that the Greeks regard as national treasures. Here is a unique opportunity to retrace Alexander the Great's life and conquests and along the way enjoy the very best that Greece has to offer. Explore archaeological sites and museums, admire stunning mountain scenery, and see how forces that Alexander unleashed shaped the development of the modern country. This program takes you to breathtaking spots that are overlooked by most travelers — from Thessaloniki to Vergina, Pella, Philippi, Dion, and Amphipolis — all in search of Alexander the Great. We conclude in Athens, the city that represents the pinnacle of ancient Greek civilization, where we will devote time for an in-depth tour of the Acropolis, particularly the magnificent Parthenon and the treasures in the National Archaeological and Benaki Museums.
