The Legend of Hercules follows the action-packed life of the mythical Greek hero, but it might provide some travel inspiration for theatergoers, too.

Even though the movie wasn't actually filmed in Greece (most of the location shoots actually took place in Bulgaria), The Legend of Hercules does trace his journey to sites across the ancient Greek countryside that are still popular with travelers today.

Destino Tours caters to these Greek Mythology fans by offering a 10 day Hercules' Trail tour around Peloponnese and Greece. It visits many of the places where his Labours took place, where he fought, and where he fell in love.

The tour stops in Athens, Levidi, Lerna, Sparta, Tegea, Alea, and Thebes, where Hercules was born. The trip can also be adjusted to fit each participant's specific interests.
