An itinerary with ports of call in Greece brings the annals of ancient history to life nearly every time you step ashore, with 18 sites of natural and cultural significance among the country’s UNESCO World Heritage listed sites (and another 14 tentatively under consideration, too). “Standing on the crossroads between Asia, Africa, and Europe, Greece’s history is as old and varied as its architecture and art,” says Georgia Tsouvala, President of the Association of Ancient Historians, a group of ancient history professionals in the United States and Canada. More than a living museum, “Greece,” says Tsouvala — who is from the Greek town of Drama — “[is also] a place to enjoy fresh food and the Mediterranean way of living.” Feast your senses on the following UNESCO World Heritage sites as you cruise storied islands and explore the mainland, too–and let Greece’s ancient and contemporary culture get under your skin.
