GREECE PILGRIMAGES

Today, Greece still offers pilgrims a feast of architectural, historical and religious experiences. Your group will have the opportunity to follow a portion of the route that St Paul took, and our well-informed guides will be there to provide historic details along the way. St Paul’s second trip, which took him to Greece, is certainly the most significant. The trip began when he was appointed to spread the word about the Council’s decision regarding what is expected from a ‘Gentile’ who becomes a Christian. He then received a vision beckoning him to Macedonia and set sail for Greece. In so doing, Paul instigated the spreading of Christianity into Europe.

    Daily flights are available from the UK to Thessaloniki and daily direct flights from Athens are available. See the FAQ’s page for more information on low-cost airlines. If you opt for the cruise option, due to the set ship embarkation days of the week, we will need to advise you which day to depart from the UK.

    We use a range of hotels of a minimum 3-star standard, and in some cases, 4-star. There is an option to upgrade all hotels to a 4-star standard at a supplement. These pilgrimages are booked on a half-board basis, except the cruise, which is full-board.
