The Percy Jackson Experience

Duration: 7 Days / 6 Nights
The Temple of Poseidon, God of the seas and father of Percy
Package rate per person in quadruple room all season From 2663

If you are a fellow Half Blood, we have great news for you! This season you can embark upon your own mythological adventure following the footsteps of Percy Jackson.

Your odyssey begins in Athens, where you will visit the Acropolis, the sight of the final battle in “Blood of Olympus”. You will then make your way through the places of worship of the old Gods, before you reinvent your roots in Cape Sounion, home to the Temple of Poseidon, God of the Seas and Percy’s father.

Once you pay your respects, you will set your basis at Nafplion, the Navel of Earth and from there launch an expedition to all the must-see places the Demigod himself set foot on. Listen to the Great Prophecies that set Percy’s adventures in motion in the Oracle of Delphi. Discover the origins of the tremendous sorceress Media in Ancient Corinth. Walk through Asclepius’ Healing Sanctuary in Epidaurus and witness the true power of the God behind Leo’s resurrection. To cap it all off, the one-day trip to Ancient Olympia will transport you back in time, to the deadly Olympic Games where Percy and his friends faced Nike.

The Twelve may have been feasting on ambrosia, but traditional Greek cuisine is the next best thing. Don’t forget to explore new flavors during your journey. After all, even Demigods need to eat.
