Explore the Roots of Western Civilization!

May 14-28, 2008

Join Dr. Ken Sheedy, an expert on ancient Greece, as we explore the heritage of Western Civilization in Greece and the Aegean, including archaeological sites in Athens, Delphi, Delos, Santorini, and Knossos; enchanting Greek villages; and more. Also discover the fabulous new Benaki Museum in Athens, the Numismatic Museum, and take a hydrofoil journey between Mykonos and Santorini. Explore the tales of legendary Atlantis as you peer from the rim into the Crater on Santorini where one of the greatest volcanic explosions in historic times occurred, covering Crete and the Minoan Civilization with several feet of ash. Stay in the ancient harbor city of Chania where the evening harbor scene can be a dazzling blend of lights and festivity. Discover the land where ancient people, ideas, events, and geography helped shape man's thinking and Western Civilization.

$3,895 with 2-for-1 air from JFK (+ tax) for reservations by Feb 14, 2008.
