Summary

The journey across the Via Egnatia continues in this tour, travelling east from Thessaloniki and heading across Thrace to Istanbul, where we cut through millennia of European history. The odyssey takes us past Athenian Amphipolis, Roman Philippi, Phoenician and Greek Thasos, and into Turkey where the imperial grandeur of Adrianople gives way to the splendour of Istanbul and the golden milestone where the road ends.

Tour highlights:

  • Explore the impressive ruins of Philippi, the city where Caesar’s assassins were brought to bay, and where Paul of Tarsus preached
  • Visit Edirne, the first Ottoman Turkish capital, and delight in the mosques embellished by the genius of Mimar Sinan
  • Immerse yourself in Istanbul, capital of two empires, bedecked with Byzantine glory and Ottoman grandeur
