What?

The Study Tour to Greece is a 3-week long adventure-packed course with exciting trips to Greece's most important historical sites. Students will gain invaluable firsthand experience of the history, archaeology and culture of this fascinating country. Our classrooms will be the cities of Greece, first Athens where we will tour the impressive monuments of the sacred Acropolis, the Agora marketplace, the beautiful new Acropolis Museum, and the wonders of the National Archaeological Museum. We will then move to the coastal town of Nauplion to stay among the Venetian-era buildings, castles, and beaches and travel to major archaeological sites of the Peloponnese, including Mycenae, Epidaurus, and Olympia. We will consult the famous oracle of Delphi and visit the historical battlegrounds of Marathon and Thermopylae, where 300 Spartans fought against an army of Persians.
