The Lands of Gods & Heroes: A Family Learning Adventure to the Classical World
Departure July 11 – July 22, 2019
In the 17th century, the notion began to develop in England and other European countries that it was essential in the education of children to be exposed to the places of classical antiquity. It was believed that it was important to search for and explore the roots of Western civilization. The need to travel to the lands that gave rise to the Western tradition is as strong today as it was 300 years ago.
Exploring the most important ancient centers of Greece, the places where the myths were made, heroes lived and the gods were ever present, this program is a learning experience for the entire family – children, parents and grandparents. In addition to the expert guest lecturer who will accompany the trip, qualified counselors will organize special learning activities for children.
