"Join me for this brief introductory tour of the Biblical sites in Greece. We will travel to all of the ancient sites that were associated with St. Paul’s journeys in Greece. Additionally, we will visit other important historical sites along the way, such as the famous Delphic Oracle and the monastic community at Meteora. A discounted Familiarization Trip, such as this, is intended to acquaint professors and pastors with the many ways that Biblical tours can enrich students’ and parishoners’ understanding of the scriptures and enhance their spiritual development. I invite you to accompany us on this odyssey to the birthplace of western civilization."

Jan 3 Thu               Athens – Delphi - Larissa
Drive to Delphi – the center of the Ancient world, the “omphalos” (navel) of the earth – whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic world. Located on the slopes of Mt. Parnassos in a landscape of natural beauty and majesty, we will walk the Sacred Way (Sacra Via) to the Treasury of the Athenians, the Theater and the Temple of Apollo where the Pythia performed her prophetic rituals.  Visit the ancient site and the museum.  We will continue to Larissa in North. If time permits, we will visit the small Archaeological Museum of Larissa and the Greco-Roman Theater on the southern slope of the hill. Dinner and overnight at the hotel in Larissa. (B,D)

The day begins with a brief stop at the port of Neapolis (modern Kavala). We will then journey to Philippi.  Along the way we will take a few moments to walk a portion of the famous Roman Road, the Via Egnatia.  After arriving at Philippi we will visit the ruins of the Theater, Agora, and a Prison where tradition says Paul and Silas had been kept. A short drive brings us to the local river (just outside Philippi) where it is thought Lydia was baptized. Next is Amphipolis, and a one hour drive brings us to Thessaloniki for one overnight. (B,D)

Jan 5 Sat                Thessaloniki – Berea – Kalambaka (Meteora)

Jan 7 Mon              Athens Tour
Our day begins at the world renowned Acropolis where we will visit the Propylaea, the Parthenon, and the Erectheum. Leaving the Acropolis we arrive at Mars Hill (site of the Aeropagus) where the apostle Paul stood before the city council, from here we can view the Agora, the market place of Athens. Afternoon visit to the new Acropolis Museum which showcases the statuary art, relief panels, vases and votive offering associated with the Acropolis.  Dinner and overnight in Athens. (B,D)

Jan 8 Tue               Corinth Canal – Corinth – Cenchraeae - Athens
We begin our day with a drive to ancient Corinth. In route we will visit the Corinthian Canal which is a 4 mile (6.5 km) man-made cut across the narrow Isthmus of Corinth.  Arriving at Corinth, it was here that Silas and Timothy rejoined Paul and here the Apostle lived and preached for a year and a half. While in ministry at Corinth, Paul wrote First and Second Thessalonians to the newly established church in Thessalonica. Later, the church at Corinth would receive two letters from Paul (First and Second Corinthians). Paul met Aquila and Priscilla in Corinth who came to Corinth from Rome due to persecution during the reign of Claudius (Acts 18:1-17).  We will see Corinth’s Greek and Roman sites associated with Paul’s ministry: the Agora, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Odeon, the Bema and Gallio's Seat. After visiting the newly restored Corinth Museum, we will drive Cenchraeae for a short visit. Return to Athens for diner and overnight. (B,D)
