Travel to Greece
Explore the Birthplace of Democracy
More than 3,000 years ago Plato stepped up to a podium outside the Temple of Zeus in ancient Olympia to address a group gathered to watch the first Olympics. The crumbling podium still exists, as do the ancient ruins of the first Olympic village. Or, for something a bit more modern, visit Athens and stroll around the Parthenon, dedicated to the Goddess Athena as recently as 437 B.C.
A&K shows you ancient Greece at its most alive and accessible. Lovers of history, archeology and mythology are inspired and awed - and so are those seeking a vibrant culture and welcoming people.
Greece is a rich mélange of experiences and an ideal spot for those who delight in joyful music and dance, delicious cuisine and sunshine - nearly 300 days per year. Nature beckons, whether for a picnic on the gorgeous, sun-drenched coast or a walk on cobblestone Byzantine footpaths. Visit beautiful Santorini Island and drink raki at a fish tavern on the sea; this is where Jacques Cousteau looked for the lost city of Atlantis. Immerse yourself in the culture of Corfu, and order saganaki at an Athens taverna and watch waiters cry "Opa!" as the cheese erupts in flames.
Whether you're looking for ancient Greece, modern Greece or an exhilarating blend of both, a luxurious A&K holiday with our superb guides leaves you with the memories of a lifetime. Create your own tailor made journey of a lifetime.
