Greek history and Culture


Greece is a land of amazing beauty and diversity, with a rich history and culture. One of the wonderful things about summer study abroad in Greece is that one never runs out of exciting places to visit.
The classical life of the Hellenic world dates back even before the times of Socrates and Plato. The great Homeric epics The Odyssey and The Iliad so familiar to us tell the mythic and real stories of Gods and Heroes which lay down the archetypes and patterns that inform all of Western Civilization, Literature, and Art.
