St. Paul in Greece Tour

Day 1    

ATHENS

Arrival Athens and take connecting flight to Thessalonica, dinner and o/n.        


Day 2    

PHILIPPI - KAVALA - THESSALONIKI

Visit Philippi where St. Paul delivered his first sermon in Europe, sowing the seeds of Christianity. Here St. Paul baptized a "certain woman named Lydia" the first Christian convert in Europe. The Roman forum, completely excavated, is from after St. Paul's time. Among the ruins, located on the rocky ledge above the town's main road is the prison where St. Paul and Silas were thrown. Continue into the modern port city of Kavala, ancient Neapolis, where St. Paul accompanied by Silas, Luke and Timothy, first set foot in Europe. Dinner and overnight in Thessalonica.


Day 3    

THESSALONIKI - METEORA

Thessalonica city tour. St. Paul preached in Thessalonica during the winters of 49-50 AD and wrote two epistles to the ancient Thessalonians. See the ramparts of the city, the triumphal Arch of Galerius staddling the Via Egnatia, once a strategic artery of the Roman Empire. Depart for Meteora Monasteries. Dinner and overnight in Kalambaka.        


Day 4    

METEORA - DELPHI

Visit Meteora Monasteries, among striking scenery, perched on top of huge rocks, which seem to be suspended in mid-air, stand ageless monasteries, where you can see exquisite specimens of Byzantine art. Continue to Delphi, dinner and overnight.


Day 5    

DELPHI - ATHENS

Visit Delphi, the center of the Ancient world - the "omphalos" (navel) of the earth - whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic world. On the slopes of Mount Parnassus, in a landscape of unparalleled beauty and majesty, lie the ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo Pythios. Visit and continue to Athens for dinner and overnight.        


Day 6    

CORINTH - ATHENS

We will visit the Acropolis to see the ruins of the Parthenon, Erectheum and Propylae. We shall also ascend Mars Hill, view the Agora (ancient market place where St. Paul spoke to the ancient Athenians). We will also see the House of Parliament, the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Presidential Palace, Hadrian's Arch and the Panathenaic Stadium.

We continue our tour to Ancient Corinth. Here under the shadow of the towering Acropolis. St. Paul preached and lived for two years. The vigorous and mostly Gentile Church he founded here in 50 AD caused him much grief and prompted him to write at least four letters to them. Visit the ruins of the ancient city where St. Paul worked with Aquila and Priscilla. See the remains of first century shops, the agora where St. Paul's trial by Gallio took place, the Fountain of Peirene, Temple of Apollo and the Bema. Return to Athens for dinner and overnight.
