To much of the outside world, Greece is a nation steeped in mythology, ancient history, and beauty. But there’s much that escapes this easy narrative: the creaking ship graveyards, snaking underground tunnels, and abandoned industrial towns. During this immersive, nine-day adventure, we’ll delve into the hidden histories and oft-overlooked spaces scattered throughout the rugged Peloponnese region, casting an ear to local lore, divergent perspectives, and stories you likely never heard in history class. While we’ll spend ample time exploring the region’s spectacular ancient roots—exploring an ancient necropolis, wandering a forgotten Byzantine city, and venturing into a cave home to the Gate to the Underworld—we’ll pay equal attention to its deserted industrial centers, gritty mountain villages, and abandoned train stations, tucking into hearty gyros and savory tripe soup as we go.
