DAY 1: CHRISTIAN TOUR ATHENS – PATMOS ISLANDS:  Pick up from your hotel to start the brilliant 3 Day Christian tour from Athens. Learn the importance of the ancient Agora which was the heart of Athens and the meeting point of Saint Paul with the principal supporters of Christianity in Athens. The next stage will be the "Mars Hill" where Apostle Paul proclaimed the word of the Christian God to the Athenian philosophers socking them when he mentioned the Resurrection. Of course, a tour in Athens should definitely combine a visit to Acropolis and a panoramic tour seeing the Athens Trilogy (University of Athens, Art Academy & the National Library), Panathinaikos Stadium, Parliament, and Presidential Guards. We will then reach the coastal Palaio Faliro, the area where St Paul arrived with the escort of Beroes after his departure from Veroia and Thessaloniki. At the end of the tour, we will drop you off at the port of Piraeus to get the ferry for Patmos Island departing at 19:00 pm and arriving at 03:15 am. Overnight onboard. Transfer at your hotel to rest when you reach Patmos. 

DAY 2: CHRISTIAN TOUR IN PATMOS AT THE GROTTO OF THE APOCALYPSE:  You will be picked up from the hotel to visit the Grotto of the Apocalypse, where the frescoes to the left of the entrance portray the miracles and travels of St. John the Evangelist, as written by Prochorus. The fresco to the right of the entrance portrays St. John's battle with the priest of Apollo at Patmos, Kynops. St. John threw Kynops into the water of the harbor at Skala, and Kynops turned to stone. The rock is still pointed out as a local landmark in the harbor. The next visit is the Monastery of St. John and The Chapel of Virgin Mary: 12th century frescoes were uncovered by a 1956 earthquake that shattered the 17th century coverings. Also, we will visit the village of Grikos, and enjoy the freshness of a drink by the sea, or even swim before our driver drops you off at either Patmos port or your hotel to rest until we transfer you to Patmos port to take the ferry at 23.55 and arrive at Piraeus Port at 08.05 the next day. Overnight onboard.

DAY 3: PIRAEUS PORT – CHRISTIAN TOUR IN ANCIENT CORINTH: Pick up from Piraeus port at 08.00 for the last part of the 3 Day Christian tour. Driving along the mainland coast to Peloponnese, we will have our first stop, at the Canal of Corinth for amazing photos. We continue until we reach Ancient Corinth where we will visit the important Ancient Market and the Bema of Apostle Paul, and we will walk at the same paths that Apostle of Nations walked and preached hundreds of years earlier. We will visit the commercial town of Corinth and The Apostolos Pavlos (Apostle Paul) Metropolitan Church which was established by Apostle Paul around 51-52 AD. Our next stop will be at 'Kechrias Port" where Apostle Paul arrived from Athens to Corinth at around 52 AD. He spent eighteen months, establishing and consolidating the Church of Corinth and then, from Kechrias port, his next journey began. We will drop you off at your hotel after an amazingly informative 3 Day Christian Tour.
