 We begin our journey with sightseeing of Athens and driving to visit ancient Corinth, where Paul lived for a year and six months (Acts 18:11-12.)  Corinth is well known to readers of the Bible because of its importance in the missionary activity of the apostle Paul: he visited Corinth at least three times, founded Christian assemblies there, and wrote at least four letters to Christians in Corinth. Later  we will climb the limestone hill overlooking Athens to visit the world famous Acropolis and other ancient buildings. From there we can view the rocky outcrop just below known as Mars Hill, where Paul gave his power speech to the Athenian leaders about the “unkown God” (Acts 17:19,22).

Ephesus was one of the most beautiful cities of the ancient world and its former glory can still be appreciated today from its well- preserved streets, temples, fountains, public baths, terraced houses, and theatres. Paul returned to Ephesus on his 3rd journey, staying and preaching for a period of about two years, where “special miracles” were wrought (Acts 19:120, 20:20). We will sail in the afternoon for a short journey to the Island of Patmos.  In Patmos, Guests can visit the Cave of John the Revelator and Patmos Monastery.
