2 I remember my classics course at Stanford quite vividly. Despite the early hour of the class, I attended every one because of the enthralling subject matter. The first time I read Homer s Odyssey I was enchanted by the epic poem, filled with struggle, triumph and the telling of perhaps the most difficult journey home ever chronicled. On our seagoing journey, you ll visit some of the ancient world s most spectacular sites: the birthplace of the Olympics at Olympia; the vast palace of the Minoans at Knossos on Crete, which recalls tales of the Minotaur; and Santorini, whose dramatic setting captures in time a cataclysmic volcanic eruption that left a deep-blue caldera framed by two cone-shaped islets. No matter how technologically advanced we become, the ancient sites of the great Mediterranean cultures that gave birth to western civilization still fascinate. This is a trip not to be missed. KATAKOLON Brett S. Thompson, 83, Director, Stanford Travel/Study Highlights caption VISIT the excavation site at Akrotiri on Santorini, location of a Minoan settlement that was buried by the eruption of Thera in the second millennium B.C.E. CRUISE the sparkling azure blue waters of the Aegean and Ionian seas aboard the comfortable and deluxe Corinthian. EXPLORE the world of the Mycenaeans, an extraordinary civilization that flourished some 4,000 years ago. TOUR Knossos, whose vast palace complex, the largest Bronze Age site on Crete, was the center of the Minoan civilization for 2,000 years. Cover: SANTORINI Parthenon

Upon arrival in Greece, transfer to Piraeus to embark our ship. Corinthian (10/10: D) F riday, O ctober 11 KATAKOLON / OLYMPIA Visit Olympia, birthplace of the Olympics, site of the ancient Sanctuary of Zeus and home to many well-preserved altars, temples and other ruins. Other highlights include the temples of Hera and Zeus, the Council House and the Treasuries. At the nearby archaeological museum, view exquisite sculptures and other artifacts from the site. Corinthian (B,L,D) S aturday, O ctober 12 KALAMATA / MESSENE Arrive in the delightful town of Kalamata, built between the sea and a hill crowned by a medieval castle, but perhaps most famous for its celebrated olive groves. Time permitting, we visit an olive processing plant. Travel to nearby Messene, the ancient and well-preserved city founded in 369 B.C.E. Explore the impressive remains including the odeon, defense towers and stadium. Remarkably, over six miles of the ancient city wall still exist. Corinthian (B,L,D) S unday, O ctober 13 GYTHEION / MYSTRA Built between its beautiful waterfront and a steep hill, Gytheion is the port of ancient and modern Sparta, and according to legend, the place from where Helen fled with Paris to Troy. Today, the area around Gytheion is known for its excellent olive oil. Drive inland to Mystra, built on a rocky spur overlooking Sparta and the best-surviving Byzantine town in Greece (dating from the 14th to 15th centuries). Once a great center of learning, art and culture, Mystra is dominated by its ramparts, palaces and the graceful domes of its churches, many of which contain frescoes. In Sparta, visit the archaeological museum. Corinthian (B,L,D) olympia M onday, O ctober 14 RETHYMNON / PHAESTOS / KNOSSOS Zeus legendary birthplace, Crete, was home to Europe s first civilization: the Minoan civilization. Arrive in Rethymnon, where ancient minarets, Venetian and Turkish houses, and a medieval fortress intermingle to compose one of Crete s most delightful towns. This morning, drive to the south of the island to explore the Minoan palace of Phaestos, a site that has been occupied since the Neolithic period and that overlooks the fertile plain of Mesara. Also stop at the village of Vori to visit its splendid Museum of Cretan Ethnology. Alternatively, enjoy the morning at leisure to explore Rethymnon. In the afternoon, drive to Knossos, where the brilliance and refinement of the Minoans are revealed in the excavations found here. The largest palace of the period on Crete, Knossos is a labyrinth of corridors, stairways and chambers decorated with frescoes illustrating life as it was 4,000 years ago. Corinthian (B,L,D)

4 Knossos fresco Mycenaean burial chamber Epidaurus amphitheater Tuesday, October 15 SANTORINI Today we sail into the flooded volcanic crater of Santorini, one of the Mediterranean s most spectacular islands. From our ship enjoy a beautiful view of the whitewashed village of Phira, set atop a 1,000-foot-high palisade. Then travel to Akrotiri, which was inhabited by a sophisticated Bronze Age society centuries ago. In the 2nd millennium B.C.E., volcanic eruptions shrouded the island in a blanket of pumice and ash, burying and preserving many of Akrotiri s buildings. Like Pompeii, the houses here still contain pottery and other household furnishings left as they were when they were abandoned, and the narrow streets and broad squares remain much as they were 3,600 years ago. Return to Phira to visit its excellent museum, which houses the most complete collection of artifacts of the Minoan civilization in the world. Corinthian (B,L,D) Wednesday, October 16 NAFPLION / MYCENAE / EPIDAURUS Arrive at Nafplion for an excursion to Mycenae, a center of the world of the Mycenaeans, an extraordinary civilization that flourished in the second millennium B.C.E. Homer described Mycenae, the home of Agamemnon, as rich in gold. A tour of the citadel includes the royal beehive-shaped tombs located outside its walls, and the dramatic Lion Gate, which leads to the acropolis and to Epidaurus, the ancient shrine of Asklepios. The ruins are dominated by a 4th-century theater, one of the finest in Greece. Spend the afternoon at leisure in lovely Nafplion, one of Greece s best-preserved medieval towns. Celebrate the conclusion of our journey with fellow travelers at this evening s farewell reception and dinner. Corinthian (B,L,D) Thursday, October 17 PIRAEUS / DISEMBARK / ATHENS / U.S. Disembark in Piraeus and transfer to the airport in Athens for return flights home. (B) Optional Pre-trip Voyage Istanbul to Athens October 2 to 10, 2013 (8 days) Join classics professor Emily Wilson from the University of Pennsylvania for an exploration of the islands that dot the Aegean between Turkey and Greece. Fly to Istanbul to embark Corinthian for this seven-night cruise that follows ancient maritime routes, joining up with our Travel/Study group in Athens on October 10th to begin our Crete and the Peloponnese voyage. On this special pre-trip cruise, revel in these experiences: On Amorgos, visit a 1,000-year-old monastery that s built against a sheer cliff and overlooks the sea. Examine artifacts dating back 3,000 years on archaeologically rich Limnos. On the island of Sifnos, visit villages built in the classic Cycladic style of architecture cube-shaped, whitewashed houses and flat-roofed shops with their doors, windows and railings painted in brilliant colors. Wander the lush garden island of Chios, carpeted with orchards, almond and olive groves, and vineyards. Visit Nea Moni, a monastery begun in 1042 that includes churches built and decorated by architects and artists from Constantinople and containing some of the finest mosaics in the world. Extension pricing starts at $2,000 per person, based on cabin category. Please call Travel/Study at (650) for more information.

F u e l C o s t s In the uncertain, often volatile oil market of late, it is difficult to predict fuel costs over the long term and, more specifically, at the time of operation of this voyage. Our prices are based upon the prevailing fuel rates at the time of brochure printing. While we will do everything possible to maintain our prices, if the fuel rates increase significantly, it may be necessary to institute a fuel surcharge. What to Expect We consider this to be a moderately strenuous program that is at times physically demanding and busy. Daily programs include up to three miles of walking, often at ancient sites where paths can be rocky and uneven. Stairs at sites may not have handrails, and elevators are limited or unavailable. Participants must be physically fit, active and in good health. We welcome travelers 15 years of age and older on this program. Deposit & Final Payment A $1,000-per-person deposit is required to hold space for this program. An additional $200-perperson deposit is required to hold space for the optional pre-trip voyage. Complete and return the attached reservation form or sign up online. Final payment is due 120 days prior to departure. As a condition of participation, all confirmed participants are required to sign a Release of Liability. Cancellations & Refunds Deposits and any payments are refundable, less a $500-perperson cancellation fee, until 120 days prior to departure. After that date, refunds can be made only if the program is sold out and your place(s) can be resold, in which case a $1,000-per-person cancellation fee will apply. We recommend trip-cancellation insurance; applications will be sent to you. Insurance Stanford Travel/Study provides all travelers who are U.S. or Canadian citizens with minimal medical, accident and evacuation coverage under our group-travel insurance policy. Our group policy is intended to provide minimal levels of protection while you are traveling on this program. We strongly recommend that you subscribe to optional baggage and trip-cancellation insurance.

Georgia Garnsey, 69, Mediterranean College: Journey of Odysseus, 2011 BARBARA CLAYTON, PhD 99, joined the Stanford faculty in 2000 and is an ardent advocate of the value of the humanities in undergraduate education. Her research focuses on Homer and the Odyssey, but she is also interested in researching ancient comedy, gender in the ancient world, the classical tradition and classics in popular culture. Dr. Clayton has taught both undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in the classics department. Also a popular Continuing Studies instructor, she s developed a wide variety of courses that includes introductory surveys of the literature and culture of ancient Greece and Rome. Her eight years of lecturing in the freshman Introduction to the Humanities (IHUM) program, and teaching Stanford s pioneering Structured Liberal Education (SLE) course for four of those years, are reflected in the breadth of lectures she has proposed for our voyage, including such topics as the literature and art of ancient Greece, athletes of Olympia, Apollo and his cults, the Spartans, the poetry of Homer and the myths of Crete.
