Athens7th Nov 2024
Enjoy an informed and in-depth visit to the ancient capital of Athens, unimpeded by the usual crowds. In the winter, the city belongs to the locals, the queues and crowds for the Parthenon melt away, there is space to gaze at its museum treasures and the dusty paths through the Agora grow greenery once again. We’ll visit classic Athens ruins, with sites including the Parthenon, two world-class museums, and other fascinating archaeological sites. Wrap up warm and join us as we explore the city where democracy, architecture, classical art and literature both germinated and flourished.
