From the white washed houses and ancient ruins of Greece to the powerful architecture and world renowned landmarks in the bustling city of Rome, this program rewards students with a true understanding of the extent to which modern western society has been influenced by ancient civilizations.

 

Our journey will begin in the Greek capital of Athens to visit sites such as the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora (market) the National Archaeological Museum and the beautiful Sanctuary of Poseidon and Athena in Sounion. Our travels then take us north to the Sanctuary of Delphi, home of the Oracle. Built on a mountain with a breathtaking view of the gulf of Itea, this site was believed to be the centre of the universe.

 

For our final stop in Greece we embark on a ferry to the island of Mykonos where students have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches and blue waters of the Aegean, and the white washed houses, churches, windmills, cafes and shops for which the island is famous. Very different from the mainland of Greece! Our final evening in Greece will be at a restaurant in the Plaka for some tasty traditional foods and Greek dancing.

 

Following Greece we fly to Italy and start our journey in the south. We are stationed in the Sorrento region and explore the major archaeological site of the area - Pompeii  - with Mount Vesuvius in full view, and tour the beaches and cliff top villages on the Amalfi Coast. Then off to Rome, to visit the numerous ruins and sites which are an integral part of classical studies. We explore all the major piazzas (squares) - each one with unique monuments, walk through the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, and tour the Colosseum where over two thousand years of politics, archaeology and art history come to life!

 

As with all our programs, classes will be conducted at historic sites to enhance the learning experience in addition to any classes held at residence.
