On this journey into the cradle of Western civilization, you’ll continually move between worlds—from the myths and history of earliest memory to the modern traditions of today’s Greek lifestyle. Expert resident guides with encyclopedic knowledge of Greek history, legends, and culture will take you to Thermopylae, site of the infamous battle in 480 BC between 300 Spartans and Xerxes’s Persian army.With a private museum interpreter, tour the Delphic Oracle and the vast Temple of Apollo—perhaps Greece’s most impressive ruins. Then walk to the remote mountain village of Agios Prokopios, which straddles the “spine of Greece,” and Milies, where you’ll meet local residents on cobblestoned streets. The coastal town of Tsargarada, situated on two hillsides divided by a ravine, offers traditional taverna meals of zucchini fritters, spanakopita, octopus salad, and grilled prawns. It’s a journey across the ages on trails through farmland, over mountains, and down to the warm waters and secluded beaches of the shimmering Aegean Sea.
