Cultural Travel Program in Greece

Greece, perhaps more than any other Study Abroad in Europe destination, provides the ideal cultural and historical landscape in which to expose oneself to the wonders of both an ancient culture steeped in tradition, and a modern civilization familiar enough to negotiate easily yet different enough to broaden one's mind and enrich one's experience. There are both short-term and longer-term educational tours; as well, many programs offer a cultural component of significant scope to supplement their regular academic offerings.

Like the early travelers to Greece before the invention of a camera, students keep a sketchbook or journal as a record of their experiences, exploring a rich variety of subject matter including beaches and rocky coves, ancient sites and monasteries, rare oak forests and fields of abundant wildflowers, the yacht port of Vourkari, and the active community of the village center.
