see larger map >>

June 13 to 23, 2012

The story of Ulysses is one of the world’s great adventure sagas. As epic as it is, it’s also intensely personal – the tale of a great hero who yearns to travel home to his family. 

Description:

Our summer voyage calls at ancient sites that are the settings for some of the Odyssey’s most memorable moments. Travel aboard the intimate Callisto with legendary storyteller, Professor Marsh McCall, who has a talent for bringing these places vividly to life with his eloquent on-site readings and lectures. Explore the majestic remains of Mycenae and the ruins of Nestor’s Palace at Pylos. At Dodoni view the seat of the oracle, where Ulysses traveled for advice, and visit the birthplace of Asclepius in Epidaurus. Ponder the mysterious ruins of Ephyra, said to be the gateway to Hades.


COST:

from  $8,995
