If you’ve always dreamt of going to Camp Half-Blood, here’s your chance! Travel to the Percy Jackson HQ: Mount Olympus, and more. This adventure is an attempt to decode Greek mythology and the deep connection Greek philosophy & science has to modern Western science and thinking. We start our Percy Jackson adventure with the Acropolis before moving on to Meteora and Delphi. The quest continues at Ancient Olympia, followed by a visit to the seafront town of Nafplion. A visit to ancient Cornith, home to another son of Poseidon, Bellerophon whose disastrous accidents in his youth make Percy’s seem tame, is a befitting end to this journey!
