Our days begin with a relaxed morning briefing from Professor Shutt in the garden terrace of our hotel. During these lectures, Professor Shutt helps illuminate the connections between the monuments we visit, the texts we explore, and their lasting significance. Late mornings and afternoons are spent visiting historic sites (many with private guides) that have survived the past two thousand years plus and continue to inspire.
Plenty of free time is scheduled so participants can pursue their own interests. Over the course of the week you’ll have several afternoons and evenings free. This will give you time to enjoy your own sightseeing and excursions. Modern Athens offers world-class shopping and dining and the Greek countryside we visit offers opportunities for hiking and swimming. Our staff is always on had to recommend dining and entertainment venues to suit individual tastes and preferences.
