Take a trip to the cradle of Western civilization on this tour of Greece. From ancient sites in Athens to natural wonders in Kalambaka, beaches in Spetses to culture in Thessaloniki, there’s an immense amount to experience in this Mediterranean country. Students will see ancient sights they’ve read about in history class and learn about Greek mythology back where it began – all while getting a taste for a culture distinct from their own. Our trip begins in the capital Athens and ends in the port city of Thessaloniki, with four educational and exciting stops in between.
