  • Indulge in the flavors of a 3-course meal at an authentic Greek taverna, where the wine is local, the cheese is fresh, and the olives were hanging from the tree yesterday
  • Ponder the hidden messages and faded frescoes on display at the famous archeological site of Knossos, which was once home to the proud Minoan civilization
  • Take a turn for the geologic as you visit an island formed from a massive Bronze Age eruption that shook the region to its core and may have caused Atlantis to slip beneath the waves
