Trip follow Odyssesus & The Odyssey

I am looking for anyone who has traveled following Odysseus' Odyssey journey. It is a bit overwhelming, so I didn't know if anyone knew of an existing trip or cruise that visits many of the major "sites" or if anyone has any suggestions. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

You'd need to know where Troy was

There's also this, which is more recent:
Amazon Amazon

I don't think either of them are the book I remember reading a few year's back, but they're the best Amazon can do.

This is a story about a cruise following in the wake of Odysseus https://slate.com/human-interest/201...s-journey.html. However I'm not sure the company mentioned is still in business. If you search with phrases like "following odysseus cruise" you may find a few leads.

One of the first books I ever remember reading as a young kid was Halliburton's Complete Book of Marvels. I've been interested in travel ever since. Thank you mom and dad.

Brittany Hughes documentary My Greek Odyssey on BBC Select is a fun tourist video of the Greek islands with an Odysseus spin. You wonít find an actual tour because Odysseus travelled a long way, possibly as far as Gibraltar, Africa, and Turkey.

If you are interested in the Illiad, you would enjoy the Peloponnese (Nestorís Palace, Mycenae) and Crete (Eleutherna) and more. If you go down that rabbit hole, you will be blown away by the artifacts that seem to prove the Trojan war actually happened.

Wouldn't that be a wonderful cruise, if it exists? Do let us know if it happens. The wine dark Sea.

Mtt, We had Halliburton's Book of Marvels, too, spent hours poring over it as kids. Surely helped spark my love of travel.
