ITV’s Greek Odyssey series

Joanna Lumley’s new ITV 4-part series Greek Odyssey may prove to be an absolutely fabulous boost for Greek tourism. The series kicked off on Thursday 13 October (9pm) and Lumley will be taking us on an odyssey through history and across Greece, including spotlighting the variety of the Greek islands, exploring the parts of Greece many sun-and-sand holidays don’t reach. She visits Mount Olympus, home of the Greek Gods, Delphi, the Parthenon (Acropolis) in Athens and other major landmarks, and takes the road less travelled to some of the remotest parts of Greece. The series airs on Thursdays, ITV1, at 9pm UK time.
