Naxos Greece

Monday, September 26 — The Glory of the Greek Islands as Seen from a Small Ship Voyage

Bruce Hale will present a slide show depicting his week-long spring trip to 7 of the Aegean Islands of Greece–Syros, Mykonos, Delos, Naxos, Santorini, Amorgos, and Patmos.  A ship bearing only 50 passengers can land at islands which large cruise ships cannot easily reach. The charms of  these islands date back to ancient Greek and Roman history and mythology. The gorgeous vistas and panoramas are timeless.  The program will show the islands’ variations. For example: Delos with its many Roman ruins;  the touristy but ever-popular Santorini;  the idyllic and traditional Amorgos; and the rugged, monastic Patmos, still a pilgrimage site.
