The world has a wealth of history waiting to be explored and the best way to uncover it is first-hand. From unrecorded times to the events of yesterday, you’ll find each country brimming with an exciting and inspiring past. Where better to learn about the ancient Greeks than on a cruise of the Greek islands? How better to interpret religious texts than by visiting holy sites with members of the religions that revere them? When your wanderlust and quest for knowledge are one and the same, these TRIPS by Culture Trip are your living history lessons.
1 . See an unfinished temple and the Acropolis as you island-hop around Greece

Embark on your own odyssey around ancient Greece on this exciting eight-day trip. You and a small band of voyagers will island-hop to the volcanic landscape of Milos and the unfinished ancient temple of Portara on Naxos, plus take an unforgettable trip to the mainland to wander around the Acropolis in Athens. History welcomes you into every port, and if you’re seeking a deep dive, Atlantis Books in Santorini has a well-read history lesson ready to stick in your backpack.

2 . Explore Petra and visit the Roman Theatre of Amman in Jordan

The adventurous and the academic alike will love this nine-day expedition through Jordan. It goes without saying that an afternoon spent wandering ancient Petra will send you into a state of awe, especially after hiking through sandstone mountains to reach the back entrance. Visits to Amman’s Roman Theatre and other archaeological treasures will guide you through the city’s history. For a more intimate view of yesterday, you’ll attend a cooking class with a local family to prepare traditional meals and spend the night with a Bedouin family in Wadi Rum to learn how they’ve prospered in the Jordanian desert for generations.

4 . Get up close to the pyramids, temples and the Nile in Egypt

Egypt may not be the first destination that comes to mind when you plan to party and travel, but just wait until you experience a felucca cruise along the Nile. The best way to travel solo in Egypt is by joining a trip, and this 10-day option takes out all the hassle, leaving you free to socialise. Start by visiting the pyramids of Giza, before travelling south to Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. From here you’ll board your Nile cruise ship for a multi-day voyage upriver to Aswan, where you’ll have a cocktail party as the sun sets over the country.

Next up is a visit to Vis, a former Yugoslav military base where nature has taken hold, before you set sail again for the olive groves and vineyards of Korcula.
