Join us on a magical history tour! Just to spite the pandemic, we’ll take in a handful of the most important archaeological sites on mainland Greece, stop briefly at a nearby island, and we won’t even wear masks! Along the way, we’ll meet a few of the locals and sample (virtually, at least) some of the local cuisine.
