Trip Description and Purpose:
Discover a remarkable era in human history, one that saw tremendous advances in architecture, politics and philosophy. In ancient Greece, humans mingled with the divine; see some of the most famous examples: from the Temple of Apollo in Delphi to the Parthenon in Athens to the Temple of Poseidon on Cape Sounion. Meanwhile, well-preserved archaeological sites like Epidaurus, Mycenae, and Eleusis bring the Ancient Greeks’ daily life into focus.
In addition to learning about the history, religion, art, and architecture of ancient Greece, students will be introduced to the vibrant Mediterranean culture of modern Greece. The country has undergone many changes in recent years, but remains an important cultural and political center in Europe. The country’s geographical beauty--as well as the Greek people’s central role in both ancient and modern history--is an added bonus, and makes this trip a once in a lifetime opportunity!
