Lands of Myths and Heroes
Delve into Classical Greek mythology through the art, archaeology and natural landscapes of Greece’s Peloponnese region and the island of Crete.
On this epic journey explore lands once believed to be the dwelling places of gods, monsters and spirits, and follow in the footsteps of the legendary Theseus, Ariadne, and the mighty Minotaur.
Visit islands, grottos and caves of sublime natural wonder that were once venerated by the ancient Greeks as sacred places and contrast with the remains of the mighty temples, theatres and cities built in honour of the capricious Gods.
Trace the sacred landscapes that emerged during the time of the Minoans and Mycenaeans and continued for almost two thousand years through Classical Hellenistic and Roman times.
