Classics Trip to Athens

As the foundation of our Western civilisation, a trip to Athens is invaluable to all classics students. Study the architectural style of the monuments of Athens, Delphi and the Peloponnese. Climb the Acropolis for panoramic views over Athens and to see the sheer scale of public buildings, especially the Parthenon. Explore the extensive ruins in Agora for a glimpse of daily life in ancient Greece. Or visit Delphi, site of the Oracle of Apollo, which played such a significant role in the classical Greek world.
