Greece Performances: In the Steps of the Gods

This Greece student trip offers the opportunity to perform in a variety of venues including atop the ancient Acropolis; the Numismatic Museum, housed in the mansion of architect Heinrich Schliemann; and the Archaeological Museum of Olympia, Delphi, and Athens. Students will explore the Greek capital of Athens; the famous Corinth Canal; Epidaurus, with its best-preserved ancient theater; Mycenae, a fortified city from the Bronze Age; Olympia, which gave birth to the Olympic spirit; Delphi, home of the gods; and Meteora, home of the Monastery of Varlaam. No performing arts tour of Greece would be complete without experiencing its food, dance, and arts. Students return to the ancient capital to bring their Greek experience full cycle.
