About This Program

What better way to learn about the history of civilization than in the birthplaces of two of the world’s most formative empires, Rome and Greece? Here, the history books come to life!

In Rome, explore the Colosseum and Roman Forum, and learn how classical mythology and philosophy shaped Western civilization. Discover beauty at Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, and learn about power and grandeur in Vatican City. While in Italy, consider taking the opportunity to visit Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance.

Visit Athens and discover both classical and modern Greece. Hike through the Acropolis and take in the glory of the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena Nike. We’ll explore the shops in its lively marketplace, Plaka, which is teeming with cafés, restaurants, and night-life. Study this ancient city, where so much history comes to life in local museums and galleries. From here, optional excursions will be offered to Olympia, the site of the first Olympic Games, and Sparta.

Leave the land behind and board private sailboats for sailing and learning in the Argo-Saronic Islands. As you explore this unique archipelago, each island offers a stunning backdrop for your studies.

Head ashore in Kalamata, and relax on the beautiful beaches of the Peloponnese. Before heading home, celebrate Greek culture and food at a farewell banquet.

SPECIAL PROGRAM NOTE: Students break up into small groups to board cabin cruise sailboats in the Greek Islands for two nights and three days before rejoining as a whole group in Kalamata.
