Upcoming Departures

We are excited to return to international travel in 2022!
Our June tour of Turkey and Greece transported OI travelers to the very intersections where East meets West. In October of 2022, we strike out even further, across the Mediterranean, to explore the impact that the Phoenicians had on the region. There are only a few spots remaining on this once in a lifetime journey. Our return to Egypt in November of 2022 is already sold out!

Before the Greeks and Romans, the Phoenicians and their culture spread throughout the Mediterranean.
Join us on an exceptional nine-night journey from the former imperial seat of Carthage in Tunisia to Sicily, Sardinia, and southern Spain—four destinations where ancient Phoenician civilization thrived and where their achievements remain
spectacularly well preserved.

Tour leader, David Schloen Professor of Near Eastern Archaeology at the OI, will guide you from Carthage to Málaga, for an exclusive update on his recently opened OI dig in the region.

Travel in the very wake of the Phoenicians and discover the lasting impact these ancient peoples had on the culture of the Mediterranean.
