The Australian newspaper included an advertisement titled “Greece & Crete: Anzac Day 2013” calling Australians to travel to Greece and in particular the island of Crete in April 2013 honoring the participation and sacrifice of the Australian soldiers (ANZACs) during the World War II. ANZAC Day is a very special day as it marks the 71st Anniversary of the battles that were taking place near Athens as the Australians were gathering to evacuate to Crete, as ANZACs took part in Greek army operations and in particular the Battle of Crete in 1941.
The advertisement campaign is inviting Australians to follow the tour programme, including the traditional Dawn Service at the base of the Cross of Sacrifice.
Costs: 18 days, 17 nights. Based on share twin, or share double will be approximately $4,995 per person, single supplement $750.
