A Mehadrin Kosher Family Vacation in Greece
Open: August 8-September 6, 2020
At the 4* Deluxe Kalavrita Canyon Hotel & Spa,
on the Northern Peloponnese Peninsula is southern Greece
Greece is one of those very few places in the Western world that has been blessed with such magnificent historical and cultural beauty. The Peloponnese Peninsula is where ancient Greek culture was born and flourished, later to become the foundation stone of what we today call Western Civilization. It is from here that the Greeks launched the famous Trojan wars. In the Laconia Valley, Sparta’s formidable officers taught the art of warfare. And Olympia gave birth to the Olympic Games – mankind’s largest worldwide sporting event.
Your vacation in Greece you will also provide an opportunity to meet local Greek people, who’ve been known since time immemorial for their cordial hospitality. Visit their villages, discover their crafts and traditions, feel their ancient mythologies come to life as you visit the many historical locations that have become UNESCO World heritage sites.
