Cultural Tours in Greece
Culture vultures will find Greece a true paradise with a wide range of opportunities from exploring ancient ruins that date back thousands of years to discovering archaeological sites that hold countless treasures, exploring some of the world’s top museums, visiting medieval monasteries and so much more. A private custom tour of Greece often begins in Athens, one of the most obvious places to start. You’ll be able to marvel at one of the world’s most iconic landmarks, the Parthenon that sits atop Acropolis Hill and the fascinating Acropolis Museum that showcases remarkable finds from the area dating from the 5th-century BC with an expert guide to answer the many questions you’re bound to have. Embark on private visits to archaeological sites like Akrotiri, Santorini’s own Pompeii, preserved in ash from the island’s massive volcanic eruption. Take a private tour of Meteora, 14th-centuries monasteries still inhabited today and open to the public, sitting atop dramatic rocky outcrops as one of the country’s largest pilgrimage sites. You can even arrange for a visit to the ancient city of Knossos with its Minoan ruins in Crete, the oldest in Europe dating all the way back to the Neolithic period. One of the best ways to complement the excursion on a Greek private tour is with a Minoan cooking class, where you’ll be able to taste history.
