01 Greece

Greece
We were on a Trafalgar bus tour from Feb. 25 to March 7th. Toured Athens ( Parthenon,Acropolis, stadium museums),Temple of Poisiden, cruise to the islands, Agineau, Poros, Haidra. Drove to see Corinth Canal, with a stop at Apollo's temple. Then to Epidarus (healing center and sanctuary of Asclepius) and a well perserved theatre. To Olympia (Temple of Zeus) and Delphi with the temple of Apollo at the top and a very good museum. Next to the monasteries (St. Stephen's) that are high atop mountains. The monks would get up there in baskets on long ropes. They have a very narrow road now. Back to Athens to catch our flight to Rhodes where we do our own touring for 3 days. Then to Crete for another 3 days. (Herakalion museum and Knossos, or labyrinth) An excellent tour, with very good food. But this is also known as the lost luggage tour, as we had to recover our luggage 3 times on this trip.

Read the Travel logue for this trip. It will be a long scroll to get to the 2001 travel journal notes on our 2000 trip to Greece. We are on a Trafalgar Bus Tour, with side trips to Crete and Rhodes on our own. So much to see -- must go back. HERE - Pre 1989 Travel Logue
