Byzantine & Ottoman Heritage Tour Experiences
Its strategic location at the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and the Levant has made Greece desirable to every major power in the region over the past millennia. Before becoming an independent nation state in the 19th century, Greece had been claimed by and been part of various empires, from the Macedonian and Roman to, more recently, the Byzantine and Ottoman.
These powerful empires became part of and were also influenced by the rich cultural tapestry that Greece developed over the centuries. Our Byzantine & Ottoman Heritage range offers cultural tours meant to introduce travelers to this period of Greek history, showcase historical buildings and monuments, and explore the impact of Byzantine and Ottoman influences on contemporary Greek art and culture.
