The Experience

Classic Greece & Turkey. Fall is an excellent time to explore sites of antiquity, when days are balmy and crowds have thinned. On the Greek Isle of Patmos, discover the 12th century frescoes and rare religious icons in the Monastery of St. John, and walk the whitewashed village of Chora. In Turkey you’ll have the chance to see both the magnificent ruins of Ephesus and ancient Pergamon, one of Turkey’s oldest settlements. Don’t miss a visit to Meteora for the stunning monasteries that seem suspended in air on rock pinnacles, housing Byzantine art inside. Kavala offers the chance to visit Philippi, site of a great battle memorialized in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and the place St. Paul wrote many of his letters while imprisoned. With an overnight in Istanbul, explore the Grand Bazaar and ancient sites of the Ottoman Empire, and fill up on fabulous cuisine.
