Detailed Description

Western Civilization has grown from the Golden Age of Athens to the turquoise waters of Mykonos. The mysterious and legendary temples of the Acropolis sit atop a hill as if on display in an outdoor museum, while the famous beaches of Mykonos bring with them the flavor of Greece fused with the world. This cultural tour beckons you to indulge on the most ineffable experiences of Greece, on display in their sought after history, and set along the shores of the islands; see the varied forms of Greece from antiquity to modernity.

Greece vacations provide a variety of cultures to explore, but this is no truer anywhere than it is in Athens, where the heart of European history continues to beat proudly. Follow your guide through the steps of ancient Athens to see the opulent remnants of the golden age of philosophy, along with the scars of occupation. The philosophies of the city blend with the centrally situated ancient, the contemporary, and the modern bringing together a cultural time machine layered like a palimpsest.

Arrive in Mykonos where the waters of the island span the spectrum of blues. The majesty of the uninhabited island of Delos, just off the shore of Mykonos, stems from its affluent past and the legend of the island as Apollo and Artemis’s birthplace. The ruins of the city decorate the hillside and linger along the shore displaying its prominence and once vast prosperity. Enjoy Mykonos Town where you can see the beauty of history built into the walls while the modern eccentricities of the city inhabit the interiors. The beaches glisten and invite you to press your feet into the warm sand and cool water. The windmills spin in kind breezes. Mykonos brings you to the edge of the modern world while keeping one foot firmly planted in the history of Western Civilization.
