Exploring the art and architecture of antiquity is a deeply rewarding experience. You not only gaze at some of the great artefacts of human creation, but also delve into the beginnings of western civilisation. The great concentrations of classical art lie in Greece, Italy and Turkey. Every Greek temple tells a different story, the finest ancient bronzes possess hypnotic beauty and the Roman paintings buried by Vesuvius are as fresh as if painted yesterday. Classical sites invariably lie in the most dramatic landscapes.
Our tours of the classical world bring it to life and aim to leave the traveller with an enduring sense of place and history.
“If ever there was such a thing as high art, these treasures would surely be it.”
Julian Allason, Departures
