Start your perfect journey into the Ancient World..

Andante Travels have been helping curious people travel the world for 35 years. We are one of the world's leading providers of archaeological, cultural and historical holidays.

From the ruins and ancient Pompeii to Ethiopia's almost mystical town of Lalibela where UNESCO-listed rock-hewn churches inspire awe and wonder in any visitor - there are very few corners of the ancient world left undiscovered by Andante travellers.

Choose from our popular tours below or get in touch and our team of experts will be happy to help.

Spring into action and book a place on one of our May or June departures

If you’re dreaming of a spring escape, you’re in luck! We have a range of exciting archaeological adventures on offer, which can take you from the fairytale castles of Bavaria to unique structures on the Isle of Man, or from the mesmerising city of Istanbul to Sardinia’s fascinating Nuragic sites. If you’re looking for something with more of a theme, how about exploring the rock art of Altamira or Dordogne’s fabulous cave engravings? What’s more, these are great months to enjoy some of our longest-running tours, such as Crete & Santorini or Classical Sicily. Get away to better weather, lose yourself in history and embark upon a journey to the ancient world this spring.
