School Trips to Athens

School Trips to Greece offer a land of mystery where myths about gods, heroic acts, mythical creatures and great philosophers reverberate around historic sites that have stood for four millennia. From Olympia in the west to Mycenae and Delphi, the sheer number of historic sites is astounding.

No school trip to Greece is complete without a visit to Athens where you will find a modern and bustling capital with a pervading sense of its classical past as it lives in the shadow of the Acropolis and the mighty Parthenon. Athens has many Classics & Archaeology sites within easy reach such as the Ancient City of Corinth, Ancient Messene and the Delphi Site as well as History & Religious Studies visits such as the Battle of Marathon Site and the Monastery of Ossios Lucas.

Athens was the first nation to host the 1896 International Olympic Games in modern history. You can visit the stadium which can seat up to 90,000 spectators and has been used since in the 2004 Olympic Games.

In complete contrast, school trips to Tolon, a seaside town, offers the quintessential Greek atmosphere set in lush mountain countryside. With such historical wonders, school trips to Greece really do provide an unforgettable experience.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"Spend a day or two at the Acropolis, and the archaeological museums,  a visit to the Olympic track, having been renovated and used for the first modern Olympics in 1896, run a lap if it’s not too hot!   A short ferry ride and you can visit the island of Aegina and climb the steps to the Temple of Afea.  Take a coach to the magnificent town of Delphi, a mystical place where myth and history collide."
