Greece on foot and by sail

ARCHAEOLOGICAL tour specialist Peter Sommer Travels will this year introduce a new itinerary in the Dodecanese islands of Greece, combining walking excursions with a sailing holiday.

Walking and Cruising the Dodecanese is an eight-day tour led by Dr Michael Metcalfe, a specialist in ancient history and the Mediterranean, and allows guests to explore the islands on foot to discover superb scenery and archaeological sites far from the beaten track.

The tour winds its way among the Dodecanese aboard a traditional wooden sailing gulet and allows plenty of time to swim in the azure waters and sample the local food and wine.

Priced from 2775 per person twin share, it departs 22 September and is one of 27 different archaeological tours and gulet cruises offered by Peter Sommer Travels this year in Greece, Turkey, Italy, Croatia, the UK and Ireland.
