Overview

A school tour to Greece will bring the myths and legends from the student’s books to his / her life, as Greece is one of the world’s oldest and greatest civilizations. A historic gateway between Asia and Europe, for thousands of years the country has flourished as a global center of art, thought, and culture. Also encompassing some of the most beautiful islands and mountain landscapes that you will ever see, Greece is a premier destination for all high school students who want to experience the rich educative tradition of this influential Mediterranean country.

Many of the country’s oldest structures and important monuments are still standing (Greece boasts 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites), making the layout of the land itself an imposing classroom environment.
