BLACK SEA  •  JUNE 26th – JULY 10th, 2021


The Black Sea is more than just a body of water; it’s a keeper of secrets. Some say it’s the legendary location of Noah’s Biblical flood; others suggest it’s the site of the lost city of Atlantis. Times Journeys’ Black Sea interests are quite current — together with New York Times journalists and experts we’ll look at local current events and examine the state of U.S. affairs in the region in extensive seminars.

Your adventure begins and ends in Athens and takes you to cosmopolitan cities (an overnight in Istanbul!) and Black Sea resorts. National museums, farmsteads, hiking, ancient wine culture, and rich and diverse cuisines offer opportunities to encounter local traditions and the charm and natural beauty of a road less traveled.

Join Times Journeys and enrich your knowledge of important issues with the definitive source. Explore the Black Seas while having the peace of mind of group travel. Make your reservation today!
