Join this special Family Adventure led by Greece Program Director, Laura Finkelstein, and her son, Benjamin (age 11) (2014 departure only; 2015 will be led by Greek Escort). Greece is a haven for families –climb to hill-top ancient temples and pretend you are Zeus or Athena, hike through beautiful river caverns, kick around a soccer ball with other children in the white-washed island streets, and swim in the warm waters of the Aegean Sea. We will explore amazing ancient sites such as the Parthenon and Delphi. Our first stop, the Peloponnese peninsula, is home to Olympia and many archeological wonders of Greece as well as lovely rivers and stone-paved mountain villages. The lovely Cyclade Islands are famous for their picturesque houses and crystal waters. Here we can snorkel off the beaches, meet shepherds while walking on local paths, and traipse under rows of stone lions at Delos, the mythical birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. We hope you can come along with us to Greece for the opportunity to see historic temples up close, taste the delicious cuisine and enjoy the warmth of the Greek families we will meet.
