St Benedict’s Classicists from all year-groups enjoyed a fabulous 6-day trip to Greece in October.
Beginning in Athens, they visited the Temple of Poseidon, the Acropolis, the Agora, the theatre of Dionysus and Syntagma Square for the changing of the guard.
From Athens, the group then toured the Marathon Athenian Toumba and Platean Toumba (with visible skeletons under glass, one with a spear imbedded in his spine). They also went to the new award-winning Museum of Thebes and the stunning Hosios Loukas Byzantine monastery.
They progressed to the sites of Delphi (with its famous oracle) and Olympia, with excellent museums at both.
The tour finished at Tolon, with an evening walk to the Bronze Age site of Asine and a visit to the prehistoric fortress of Mycenae or Epidauros, returning to Athens via the magnificent Corinth Canal.
