Archaeology & History Tours & Activities in Greece

For anyone with the slightest interest in the past, Greece has an incredible history that spans many thousands of years. But it is the archaeology of the last four millennia, the sites of the Minoans, Romans, Arabs, Latin Crusaders, Venetians, Slavs, Albanians and Turks, that the country is better known. From the breath-taking site of Delphi in the mountains of mainland Greece to the fanciful reconstruction of Knossos on the island of Crete, there are tours and cruises that take in these and many more iconic ancient and historic sites of Greece.
