Greece

Country Description

Greece is the birthplace of Western civilization, having given rise to reason, philosophy, science and democracy. In Greece, we will be based in Athens and will spend several days exploring the city.

Athens

In Athens, we will visit:
  • The town center which includes the Syntagma (Constitution) square, the Greek Parliament building (old Royal Palace) and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

  • The Plaka, which is the oldest continuously inhabited section of Athens, full of archeological sites, including Monastiraki (little monastery) and the ancient Agora (market), as well as restaurants, bars and tourist shops
  • The Acropolis hill with the Propylaia entranceway to the world famous Parthenon temple dedicated to Athena Parthenos, the Erechtheion and the Caryatids that support it, and, of course, the Acropolis Museum

  • The National Archaeological Museum which houses a great collection of large sculptures, bronzes, figurines as well as gold masks, cups, dishes and jewelry

Note: Itinerary may change without notice. Adaptations are made from semester to semester.
