Spring Break in Athens

Introduction

Come experience Athens, where ancient history and vibrant modern culture exist side-by-side at the crossroads between the western and eastern Mediterranean.

  • Climb the Acropolis, where the Parthenon still stands.
  • Visit the heart of ancient democracy in the Athenian Agora.
  • Marvel at Byzantine mosaics and icons--and their modern descendants.
  • Walk in the path of St. Paul at Corinth.
  • Soak up the sun and enjoy some real Greek food in beautiful Nafplio.
  • Explore the prehistoric citadel and tombs at Mycenae.
  • Learn about the place of modern Greece in the world.
