Archaeological tour specialist Peter Sommer Travels has created a brand new itinerary focussing on the rich history and culture of Athens, designed for travellers who crave more than just a pit stop on the way to the Greek Isles.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe new eight-day tour, Exploring Athens: Archaeology, Culture and Food, provides a complete immersion in a city that helped define Western civilisation, led by archaeologists Heinrich Hall and Nota Karamaouna – both seasoned experts on Greek history and passionate residents of Athens.

Catering to no more than 16 people, the tour will take travellers on a 3000-year journey, from the lives of the warring Mycenaeans of the Bronze Age to the glories of ancient Greece and Rome, and onwards via the Byzantine, Frankish and Ottoman Ages to the vibrant modern capital of today.

Together with famed highlights like the Acropolis and Agora, travellers will also discover many well-kept secrets both within the city and beyond, including sensational Greek food and wine at some of the guides’ own favourite local venues.

Exploring Athens: Archaeology, Culture and Food operates from June 1 to 8, 2014 and is priced from £2345* per person twin share (approx A$4330).

*Tour prices include transport, accommodation, most meals, guide services, and all entrance fees and tips on excursions. Excludes airfares.
