Educational and Philosophical
There’s no more exceptional destination than Greece for tours following an educational theme!
Greece is the birthplace of democracy, Western philosophy, the Olympic Games, Western literature, political science, major scientific and mathematics principles, and Western drama. This is the land of Socrates, of his student Plato and of Plato’s disciple Aristotle…the three most significant Greek philosophers influencing western philosophical traditions. This is the land of Homer and his monumental works the Iliad and the Odyssey, and the classical era that saw the dawn of drama, and authors like Sophocles.
Reflecting this great legacy, there are 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites located in Greece, beckoning students of all ages to experience the sheer wonder of a visit, surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of the mainland and the islands, while soaking up the classic art and architecture.
The magnificent Acropolis with the Agora where Socrates engaged Athenians in philosophical conversation…the ruins of Mycenae where Iliad readers imagine the place from where Agamemnon ruled Bronze Age Greece… Delphi, the celebrated place of prophecy and home of the oracle of Apollo…Delos, the sacred site near Mykonos Island – in Greece, every site sparks educational interest and excitement.
