Come with us to Greece to experience first-hand the material remains left behind by this ancient culture. We’ll stay in Athens and see the Greco-Roman temples that were so important in everyday life. We’ll stand in the ancient agora where Paul debated with the philosophers of his day, and visit Mars Hill where he was taken to explain this new and strange teaching. We’ll explore the ancient city of Corinth and see why its geographical location contributed so much to the ethos of the city.

An optional extension will offer the opportunity to visit other cities in the footsteps of Paul – Berea, Thessalonica and Philippi. We’ll also visit the tomb of King Philip (father of Alexander the Great) and see the exquisite articles buried with him. On the way we’ll stop at Meteora, where centuries-old monasteries cling to the side of craggy precipices. This is a trip to Greece with a unique focus. Experience first-class teaching from Dr Greg Forbes supplemented by the local knowledge of fully qualified Greek tour guides. The tour has been planned so that participants in the Biblical Archaeology Tour can fly straight from Israel to join this tour in Athens. See the application form for
further details.
