HERITAGE & TRAILBLAZERS IN ISRAEL & GREECE
Lifetime Discovery invites you to spend 2 weeks of exploring Jewish heritage in Greece and following the track of the trailblazers, your own roots, during the pioneering days of the State of Israel. In Greece, there is a compelling story about the Greek Jewish population, its triumphs and its tragedies, that speaks to everyone, Jew and non-Jew alike. While focusing on the cities, sites and communities with an extraordinary Jewish heritage, we will visit all the major classic destinations in mainland Greece. Once in Israel, an exploration and discovery of the major sites will be linked to the footprints that your “landsmen” laid down as immigrants when they made “aliya” to Israel. We will prepare a trip based on the pioneers from your country, and, if you have family – and if you choose – Lifetime Discovery staff will do the research before your arrival to track their route as trailblazers. Their journey will be interwoven with yours as highlights of the tour. There is an option to connect between the two countries either air or by sea. The myriad options are up to you.
* Rate is per person per night based on double occupancy, depending on time of travel, chosen hotels, availability and number of passengers.
Lifetime Discovery also offers this Heritage & Trailblazer itinerary individually in each destination, priced from $1,100.
