Travel Guides Crafted by Experienced Archaeologists & Historians

Archaeology Travel Itineraries

Build on our itineraries to create your own trip of a lifetime

With over a decade experience in organising tours and other travel services with an archaeology focus, Archaeology Travel have created a specific set of multi-day, self-guided tours with a focus on the art, archaeology and history for a select group of destinations. Using our own ‘Itinerary Builder’, these itineraries can be followed as they are, or they can be customised to suit your interests, adding in destinations and places that are on your list of priorities. They are currently free of charge to those who have registered to use the website.

Ice Age Cave Art of France

This itinerary for an 8-day self-guided tour includes some of the best Stone Age decorated caves in France. The tour begins in Marseilles, with the first stop at the replica of the Cosquer Cave, and the final stop is on the edge of Paris at the National Archaeology Museum in Saint Germain-en-Laye, and includes such highlights as Chauvet 2, Niaux, Pech Merle, Cougnac and Lascaux 2. The itinerary is easily customised.

Three Days of Art & History in Paris for First Time Visitors

Paris is one of the world’s most popular destinations. And with good reason. As anyone who knows the city will tell you, there really is so much to see and do. If you are in the process of planning your first trip to the French capital, you have almost certainly already discovered this for yourself. With our years of experience, we have put together a three day package of activities and walks with first time visitors to Paris and lovers of art and history in mind.

Walking Tour of the Ancient Mercantile Fora in Rome

At the political heart of the Roman Republic and then the Roman Empire lay the Roman Forum and the Imperial Fora. Today the ruins of these sites are a major attraction for visitors to Rome. On the banks of the Tiber, between the Aventine and Capitoline Hills, were two other lessor known fora. Despite a more commercial focus the Forum Boarium (the cattle market) and the Forum Holitorium (the vegetable market) are every bit as interesting as their more monumental counterparts. And they are just as rewarding for those who like to explore archaeological sites away from the crowds.
