The Acropolis Museum houses all the artefacts that were found on the site, stretching from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. There are over 4,000 classical treasures on display.

Panathenaic Stadium

This stadium in Athens hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Reconstructed from the remains of the ancient Greek stadium, the Panathenaic is one of the oldest stadiums on earth and the only major stadium built entirely of white marble.

Plaka

Pláka Neighbourhood

Delphi theatre

Delphi

Delphi occupies a stunning location on a hillside but the view isn't the only reason to bring your students here. It is home to the Oracle, the Sanctuary of Athena, the Temple of Apollo and the Delphi Theatre.

Mycenae

Mycenae

In the C.2nd BC Mycenae was one of the major centres of Greek civilization with a military stronghold which dominated much of southern Greece. Students can see the Tomb of Agamemnon and the ancient Citadel of Mycenae, with the royal tombs and Lions Gate.

Olympia Greece

Olympia

Olympia was the site of the ancient Olympic Games, which were celebrated every four years by the Greeks. Situated in a valley in Elis, it was not a town, but a sanctuary with buildings associated with games and the worship of the gods. It became the Greek national shrine and contained many treasures of Greek art, such as temples, monuments, theatres, statues, and votive offerings of brass and marble.

Corinth Canal excursion photo

Corinth Canal

The striking Corinth Canal exists to create a path for ships to sail the Aegean Sea and was first conceived as early as 602 BC. It's very narrow at only 25 metres wide and effectively separates the Greek mainland from the Peloponnese.
