Thinking about travelling to visit all of the wonderful remains of Ancient Greece? Well, then you've come to the right place. In this interview, Kelly has sat down with Dr Rita Roussos, our guide for our upcoming tour in the Autumn. Dr Roussos is a native Athenian who has taught archaeology and art history at the American University of Athens and is a trained archaeologist who has worked on sites like Isthmia, Kato Lossous and Mantinea.

The stories and legends, customs and politics of the ancient Greek world continue to echo through the ages. How did a rowdy group of rival kingdoms dominate the Aegean for so many centuries? On this journey of discovery, we explore classical Athens, a city whose golden age led to astonishing advances in art, philosophy, science, and politics; take a pilgrimage to Delphi where we encounter the cult of Apollo; cross the Gulf of Corinth and travel into the Peloponnesian hills where hero Hercules began his twelve tasks and King Agamemnon set out to rescue Helen and capture Troy.
