IMPORTANT INFORMATION

SUNDAY – MONDAY – DAYS 1 & 2: U.S. / ATHENS – We depart the U.S. today for our flight to Athens. Upon arrival in Athens, we will be met by DWM’S local representative and escorted to our hotel in Athens. Remainder of the day free. Overnight Athens. (D, B)

MONDAY – DAY 3: ATHENS OF APOSTLE PAUL TOUR & DINNER AT LYCABETTUS HILL – Athens in 51 AD, Apostle Paul traveled from Berea to Athens by boat. His boat anchored at Faliron that used to be one of the main ancient ports of Ancient Athens. Paul walked from the port to the city of Athens. While waiting for Silas & Timothy to come from Macedonia, Greece, he spent most of his time talking with citizens at the Synagogue and in the Agora. The Athenians took an interest in his teachings and invited him to present it more analytical on the Aeropagus, the hill west of the Acropolis (Mars Hill). Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and gave his famous Aeropagus Sermon, emphasising the need to “a known God” rat her than worship the “unknown” as described in Acts 17:16-34. Follow your guide on a visit to the Acropolis where you will see the Propylaea, the Parthenon, the Erectheum, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Touring through modern Athens You will view the Olympic Stadium, where the modern Olympic games began and where the games returned in 2004. In the afternoon you enjoy a dinner with magnificent views upon the Lycabettus Hill. (B, D)

TUESDAY – DAY 4: ANCIENT CORINTH TOUR & CACHRAE – This morning you visit Corinth (Acts 18: 1-18), a city that inspired one of St. Paul’s most famous letters. You will visit the Archeological Museum, the Marketplace, and Temples. Walk among the ruins and stand on the Bema where Paul stood. Read Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, addressing his message to the Gentiles as he began the task of establishing his church in Corinth. Acts 18:9-11 Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; 10 for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.” 11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. On your way back you will stop at Cachrae to visit the site where Paul sailed to Ephesus. Back to Athens for dinner and overnight. (B, D)

WEDNESDAY – DAY 5: FLIGHT TO ROME, PANORAMIC, WALKING TOUR, PIAZZA NAVONA, TREVI FOUNTAIN Today you are flying to Rome upon arrival meet your driver and continue to a panoramic tour and a walking tour of the Eternal City. Your guide will take you through an orientation tour through the city where you will see Piazza Navona and the famous Trevi Fountain. (B, D)

THRUSDAY – DAY 6: VATICAN MUSEUMS, SISTINE CHAPEL, ST PETER, AFTERNOON CATACOMBS – This morning you visit The Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St Peter’s Basilica. Almost all Christians martyred in the Circus of Gaius/Nero—the site where St. Peter’s Square now stands. The Egyptian obelisk in the center of the square is original to the circus, though it stood in a different spot. Here Peter was crucified, according to tradition, upside down (John 21:18-19). He is most likely buried deep beneath the Basilica in the original burial cave. In the afternoon visit the Catacombs. Most famous for the early Christians buried here, the catacombs offer an essential contribution to early Christian art. Early frescoes and sculptures still exist in the catacombs. Most touching are the smaller burial spots carved out for children who had died. (B, D)

FRIDAY – DAY 7: TRE FONTANE, ROMAN FORUM, MAMERTINE PRISON, PALATINO, COLOSSEO & SPANISH STEPS – This morning you start your day at the most inspiring place, Tre Fontane (Abbey of Three Fountains). Tradition tells us Paul was martyred outside the walls of Rome at a place most people have never heard of one of the Christian sites not on the tourist maps. Don’t confuse Tres Fontane with the famous Trevi Fountain. It’s called Tres Fontane (“Three Fountains”) because, according to legend, after Paul’s head was cut off, it bounced three times, and three fountains sprung up! Next, you see the Church of St Paul outside the walls; many believe Paul is buried here. Afterwards you visit The Colosseum. You continue with a walking tour through Roman Forum and towards the Arch of Titus; the Arch’s inside relief portrays Roman soldiers carrying off treasures from Jerusalem Temple, destroyed by Titus in 70 AD. Jesus predicted this destruction (MATH 24:1-2) and the Palatine Hiil ending with a visit of Mamertine prison. You then walk to the world-famous Spanish steps for some free time to enjoy a local pizza or gelato. (B, D)
