Travel To Greece

Travel To GreeceThere is no place on earth richer in story, myth, and historical artifacts than the ancient land of Greece. This trip focuses on the significant events that took place here, the people (soldiers and thinkers and artisans) who changed our world, and – along the way – the Apostle Paul and the churches he founded here.

This 10-day trip sets an ambitious itinerary. We see a great deal of Greece as we drive to fabulous and famous destinations. And we get to visit most of the major sites and museums of Greece within a relatively short span of time.

We would love to have you travel to Greece with us. For more information, contact us at questions@woodrooftravels.com.
