Description :

Your lessons in Ancient Greek begin with the word "helios", the chariot-riding God of the Sun, who traveled daily rising in the east  and setting in the west. Your journey commences in Greece's most sought out holiday destination of Santorini, with its world famous caldera sunsets. Few places on earth are as romantic and unique as this ancient island, providing a dreamland for artists and photographers. A short ferry across the Mediterranean will take you to Greece's largest island of Crete. The island offers more diversity and its cuisine is one of the healthiest in the world.  Learn about the ancient Minoan civilization at Knossos which flourished 4500 years ago and is very well preserved. Crete is also home to some of the most beautiful beach resorts in the Mediterranean. You will then be whisked across the blue skies  to the most eastern of the Greek islands, Rhodes.  It is rare to find an island with such a diverse history in the Aegean Sea, with its medieval towns, ancient acropolis, and wondrous history. You conclude your Helios trip arriving in Athens and exploring its history on foot with a walking tour of the city, taking you all the way up to the Acropolis. You will leave your footprints behind, where man's first steps were taken thousands upon thousands of years ago. In modern Greek, helios means 'sun' and having experienced the Greek Helios, you will be sure to agree that there can be no life without it.
