The itinerary includes locations where St. Paul preached, including the Bema of St Paul in Corinth, the Areopagus in Athens,  the Vlatadon Monastery in Thessaloniki, Veria (Berroia), Ephesus, and Kavala, where Paul met Lydia, the first Christian convert in Europe. We will also explore Pergamon and St. John’s Monastery in Patmos, both mentioned in the book of Revelation in the New Testament.
