Paul spent time in Athens and Corinth on his second missionary journey. He also stayed in Corinth on his third missionary journey, and it was here that he wrote the book of Romans.

Day 1
You will arrive at Athens airport, where our representative will meet you and escort you to your private transfer to your hotel. Overnight in Athens.

Day 2 (Half Day Tour of Athens and Acropolis)
After breakfast, we depart on a coach tour of modern Athens. We visit the Academy, the University, the National Library, Syntagma Square, Iliou Melathron (the former home of the renowned archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann), the Presidential Palace, the Panathenaic stadium, and the Greek House of Parliament, a neoclassical structure overlooking the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We continue to the famous Acropolis, where we ascend to the top of this rock via a series of steps. At the top we pass through the Propylaea, the stately entrance to the magnificent structures inside, and we will enjoy a spectacular view of the city as well as the entire basin of Attica.

We then visit the magnificent Parthenon, arguably the best known and most awesome structure on the Acropolis. This huge Doric temple was dedicated to the divine patroness of Athens, Athena.

We make our way to the new Acropolis Museum, less than 1,000 feet southeast of the Parthenon. Here we enjoy a unique and memorable journey through history.

We return to our hotel in the early afternoon. The remainder of the day will be at leisure. Overnight in Athens.

Day 3 (Half Day Tour of Ancient Corinth)
Following breakfast we depart from Athens, taking a drive westwards along the beautiful coast until we reach the Corinth Canal with its breathtaking views. We enjoy a short stop here for a photo opportunity. The Corinth Canal is international sea transport junction. It serves vessels coming from and going to ports in the Mediterranean Sea, Adriatic Sea and Black Sea. The Corinth Canal is 6.3 kilometres long and cuts through the Isthmus of Corinth.

We soon reach the ancient town of Corinth where Paul lived and preached for two years. The site of Ancient Corinth was first inhabited in the Neolithic period (5000-3000 BC).

Then we visit Cenchreae. This was Paul’s departure point for Ephesus.

We return to Athens in time for lunch. The afternoon will be at leisure. Overnight in Athens.

Day 4
We say farewell to Athens and transfer to the airport.
