Cyprus & Rhodes

Join us! And discover the fascinating archaeological heritage and history of the Mediterranean Islands of Cyprus and Rhodes, as well as Bodrum on the Aegean Coast of Turkey, and the Greek Isle of Kos.

Cyprus & Rhodes Map

Under the superb leadership of archaeologist Dr. Blanche Menadier, we will explore archaeological sites, museums, and fascinating ancient cities. We are fortunate to have become acquainted with Blanche, through her archaeologist husband Dr. Ken Sheedy, who so many of you have traveled with.

Our investigation of Cyprus will include the most important prehistoric site in the eastern Mediterranean, Choirokoitia, as well as the Idalion and Cyprus museums, for an excellent introduction to the influence of Assyrians, Greeks, Phoenicians, and Romans on Cyprus. We’ll also explore Limassol and Amathus, Kourion, Kato Paphos and other sites, and have an adventure into the Troodos Mountains.

After an introduction to Rhodes, we will ferry across to Bodrum Turkey. Here we will discover the site of Halicarnassus, the ancient Mausoleum which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and see the wonderful discoveries in the Underwater Museum in Bodrum Castle. We’ll then take a boat to explore Kos, birthplace of Hippocrates, the father of medicine.

We will return to Rhodes to visit the cliff top site of Lindos on Rhodes, which was dominated by the spectacular temple of Athena Lindia in ancient times.

We invite you to join us to discover these fascinating sites in the eastern Mediterranean with our charming and talented archaeological leader, Blanche Menadier.
