Let’s start this 7 days religious tour from Greek port city on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean Sea, Thessaloniki. Visit Philippi, where the first Christians in Europe were baptized, the “baptisma site” and the “ancient Neapolis” in Kavala, where Saint Paul landed to begin his missionary labors in Europe. Return back to Thessaloniki and enjoy a city tour with White Tower, monuments of Caesar Galerios and the oldest Thessaloniki’s church Rotunda. Continue your tour in district of Jews in Veria; pay a visit to Meteora, a complex of ageless monasteries with priceless historical and religious treasures, standing between Earth and Sky at the top of huge rocks. Following the footsteps of Apostle Paul, we head for Athens. Visit the Ancient Agora, where Apostle Paul preached for the first time the God’s word in front of the Athenians. Of course, you should not miss the opportunity to visit the Acropolis as the last stop before boarding on the plane for return trip.
