In the footsteps of the Apostle Paul

Biblical Greece

10 days

We follow the biblical journey of the Apostle Paul to Greece, the country that became the “gateway” for the spread of Christianity in the West. A journey of revelation, an experience of a lifetime. We follow the “Apostle of the Nations”, guided by the “Acts of the Apostles” and the Epistles of Paul, on his tour of Greece from Naples (now Kavala), Philippi, Thessaloniki and Veroia, and finally to Athens and Corinth. This thematic journey revives the memories of the time of the first Christians, and could be considered the starting point of the long Christian history of Greece. It is a biblical tourism proposal addressed to all those who wish to “touch” and get to know the biblical truths.
