Greece: Athens, Delphi, Island of Aegina
Athens, Delphi, Island of Aegina
Spring Break 2024
March 1 – 9, 2024
Greece, the birthplace of democracy and cradle of western civilization, offers extraordinary opportunities for a rich learning experience. Yet, Athens is also a vibrant modern metropolis that remains affordable, safe, and friendly. During this 9-day program, participants will be able to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Ancient Greek Civilization. Part of this program will be based in Aegina, a beautiful island in the Saronic Gulf, 27 km from Athens. Visiting both Athens and Aegina will give participants the wonderful opportunity to get off the beaten path and to discover other locations, which were equally at the core of the development and the enrichment of both the country’s and the entire world’s culture.
This trip is intended for: Students, faculty, staff and community members.
You will experience: Cultural immersion, history and a touch of island life.
