Biblical tours
following St. Paul's steps in Greece

With the bible and the letters of Apostles as our guides, follow the foot steps of St.Paul during his second and third missionary journeys in Greece. In his second journey Paul accompanied by Silas landed at Neapolis (Kavala) and walked to the city of Philippi. Here they met Lydia who became the first Christian in Europe but also jailed and freed. Paul's party continued their journey via Amphipolis, Apollonia, Thessalonica, Berea and arrived in Athens. Going further south to Corinth, St. Paul established a powerful church. Paul stayed in Corinth nearly a year before returning to Ephessus.
In his third journey Paul was planning to visit Macedonia and eventually he ended his trip in Corinth, where he stayed for about 18 months. On his way back he stopped in a couple of Aegean sea islands before landing at Miletos.
