Lamar University public radio KVLU will host a Smithsonian “travel adventure” through Greece this fall.

Sponsored in conjunction with Collette Vacations, the nine-day tour, “Greece: Footsteps through Time” will depart September 20, for Athens. The odyssey will feature day tours to some of this region’s most historic sites including the Acropolis, Delphi, the 3,000 year-old Lions Gate in the ancient city of Mycenae, the Temple of Poseidon and a day cruise around the Saronic Islands, the location of some of Greece’s most important archaeological sites.

“Smithsonian Travel Adventures offers the best in educational travel all over the world,” said Melanie Dishman, station manager for advancement and the tour’s coordinator. “These tours excel in local expert guides and speakers who really make the difference between simply seeing and truly understanding your destinations.”

To provide more details about the trip, KVLU and tour representatives will host an information meeting at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17, at Katharine & Company, 1495 Calder at MLK Jr. Parkway. Anyone interested in taking part in this special tour is encouraged to attend the meeting, Dishman said.

“Anyone who has the slightest interest in discovering Greece should really attend the meeting,” said Dishman.”We’ll be able to answer all your questions and there will be a slide show with highlights from the tour.” One does not have to be a member of KVLU to participate in the trip, she said.
