Area students will visit Greece this summer in a 9-day educational “Grecian Odyssey” tour. Students from any school district are eligible to travel. Parents and family members are eligible to travel as well.

Students in grades 6-12 and college students will visit Athens where they will tour the Olympic Stadium, before heading up to Acropolis, home of the Parthenon and Temple of Athena Nike. Next, students will visit Greece’s oldest ruins (circa 1600 B.C.) as they explore Mycenae. Also, Epidaurus’ 15,000 seat Asklepieion. Then, on to Olympia to stand on the ground where legend holds Hercules founded the Ancient Olympic Games nearly 2,800 years ago. Next, the students will to Delphi to climb the ruins of Temple Apollo, just as Socrates did when he consulted the Oracle.
Last, to Cape Sounion to see the Corinth Canal and visit the Temple of Poseidon. An excursion will be on a private island for lunch and swimming.
