Classics Trip to Athens October 23



The trip went smoothly and we enjoyed all the archaeological sites, museums and monuments along with the great weather.

We visited the Parthenon and Erechtheion on the Acropolis hill as well as the Acropolis Museum. We had a chance to see the ancient Agora, the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens and the Hadrian’s Arch. We walked in the alleys of Monastiraki and Plaka to go up the hill of Acropolis.


We also visited the oracle of Delphi and the museum in Delphi. The girls learned about God Apollo and the importance of the oracle in ancient times. The weather was warm and the view was breathtaking.


Finally, we visited the most well maintained Ancient Greek theatre in Epidaurus, the palace of Mycenae and the tomb of Atreus. The girls learned about ancient tragedies and comedies and some Heroes from the Iliad like Agamemnon, the King of Mycenae. On our way to Peloponnese, we stopped to see the Isthmus of Corinth.
