School Trips to Greece

School trips to Greece are ideal for classical studies groups as they offer your students the opportunity to travel back in time to explore the culture and legacy of Ancient Greece.

Your school trip to Greece will be an unforgettable opportunity to bring ancient history to life for your 21st-century students!

Why visit Greece?

The cradle of Western civilisation

Ancient Greece is often called the cradle of Western civilisation because it is the root culture through which most of the modern West has derived its cultural practices.

It was the influence of the Ancient Greek culture on that of Ancient Rome that saw these ideas and practices spread around the Mediterranean and through to most of Europe.

Your classical studies school trip to Greece will offer your students many exciting opportunities to discover the culture of Ancient Greece.

Based in the modern capital, Athens, you’ll be able to visit historic sites and monuments including the Acropolis, Delphi and Mycenae.

And at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, your students will have the chance to explore Ancient Greek art and antiquities.

 

The birthplace of democracy

Wealthy families and tyrants generally dominated politics in the Ancient Greek city-states, until the second half of the 6th century BC, when the Athenians established the world’s first democracy, with all adult, male citizens having equal privileges in the citizens’ assembly.

On a classical studies school trip to Greece, your students will be able to learn more about the Athenian democracy and you’ll have the opportunity to discuss what elements may have influenced our modern democracies and whether the Athenian democracy was a true democracy.

The centre of the world

School trips to Greece can include an excursion to Delphi – considered to be the centre of the world by the Ancient Greeks. The oracle here was consulted on many of the most important decisions made by the Ancient Greeks.

On your classical studies school trip to Greece, your students will love exploring the extensive archaeological site here. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in part because the buildings here were erected by a number of Ancient Greek city-states. This demonstrates the fact that despite being politically separate entities, the city-states were connected by a common Hellenic culture.

On your school trip to Greece, your students will have the opportunity to explore some of the most important sites in the classical world, from the Acropolis to the Delphi and Mycenae. You’ll also get to see some of the most incredible artefacts at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

One of the highlights of your classical studies school trip to Greece will be your visit to the Acropolis, and your students will never forget seeing the iconic Parthenon for themselves. Built in the 5th century BC, this spectacular temple is considered one of the world’s greatest cultural monuments.

And they’ll learn more about the beliefs of the Ancient Greeks with a visit to Delphi on your school trip to Athens. The Ancient Greeks considered this site to be the centre of the world and would consult the oracle (or Pythia) on almost any important decision.
