Greece will inspire you to re-read the New Testament as you explore the places where Saint Paul walked and taught. Come and see the places where Saint Paul addressed many of his letters, including Philippi, Corinth, Ephesus, and Thessaloniki. You may also visit the beautiful cities and islands of Kavala, Kalambaka, Meteora, and Santorini. You’ll explore the historical sites of Delphi and Athens and maybe even visit Patmos, where Saint John wrote Revelation.

Here Are Four Can’t Miss Sites in Greece

Our meticulously designed itineraries encompass a variety of renowned pilgrimage destinations, allowing you to experience the unique essence of each location:

Philippi with Select International Tours

Philippi

Philippi was the first location in Europe where Saint Paul preached the gospel. When Saint Paul, Silas, Timothy, and Saint Luke arrived, the city was a Roman colony with a small Jewish population. The ruins of the city invite you to step into the biblical narrative and the spread of the Gospel.

Corinth with Select International Tours

Corinth

Corinth was an important strategic location in the region for more than a thousand years before Christ. By 44 BCE, Julius Caesar made Corinth the administrative capital of Rome, which may be why Saint Paul stopped here to preach and continued to communicate with the church in Corinth through his letters. 

Ephesus with Select International Tours

Ephesus

Ephesus was a major center of commerce that was already introduced to Christianity by disciples of Saint John the Baptist and converted by Aquila and Priscilla before Saint Paul arrived to teach, preach, and organize the early church before continuing his missionary journey.
