Polyhymnia, the Muse of Religion and Politics (many voiced inspiration for those serious topics that are not to be discussed at the dinner table), will guide you through an itinerary designed around the subjects that interest you.
“Intrigued by the topics of religion and politics? Let us help you to build an adventure inspired by Polyhymnia. For example, one that traces the origins of Greek religious thought and mythology, visiting the setting for Plato's Republic or the sites where Herakles' labours took place.”
Follow in the giant footsteps of Herakles in and around his kingdom in the Argolid region of the Peloponnese, taking in the wild territories of the Nemean lion and Lernian Hydra.

Greek Mythology: Olympians versus Titans: Zeus, Poseidon and Prometheus
This is our mythology-based travel experience, inspired by the Muse of religion and politics, Polyhymnia. Religion and Politics were intimately intertwined in Greek mythology as the line between belief and knowledge, fiction or fact, was not as clear as it is today. The stories of mythology have fascinated us for centuries. This experience, based in Greece and beginning at mount Olympus, will take you across the country to the actual setting of many of the most famous myths, or your personally selected favourites.
Travel around Greece and the Mediterranean to explore the fascinating world of the Titans and Olympians: Zeus, Poseidon, Prometheus and all the rest!
If you have more time, discover the spectacular settings of the Greek myths.
