DETAILS

Focused on the southern tip of the Balkan peninsula, this trip will illustrate how Greek culture has influenced modern-day Western civilization by being the birthplace of democracy, Western philosophy and literature, political science, many major scientific and mathematical principles, theatre, and the Olympic Games. Teens will eat a traditional Greek meal while watching the sun set over the Aegean Sea, walk along the volcanic beaches of Santorini and through the Jewish quarter of Athens, and shop until they drop at the Monastiraki Flea Market. Don’t miss these archaeological landmarks, significant to Greek mythology:

  • The Temple of Olympian Zeus—located in the center of Athens, this second century structure was dedicated to the heads of the Olympian gods
  • Archaeological Site of Olympia—contains the sanctuary to the gods, the highest concentrations of ancient Greek masterpieces, and remnants of all the sports structures erected for the Olympic Games
  • Mount Olympus—the highest mountain in Greece and mythological home of the god
