Trip to Greece


During the first week of school, Leaving Cert Ancient Greek students embarked on a 10-day study tour with third level students of classics and archeology as part of the IIHSA's (Irish Institute for Hellenic Studies in Athens) annual educational tour. We explored the most important archeological sites and museums on mainland Greece, spanning from the neolithic period up through the byzantine era. Highlights included: the Athenian Acropolis, the Sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi, the Byzantine monastery of Osios Loukas, the Ancient Theatre of Epidauros, and the Sanctuary of Zeus in Olympia- the site of the Ancient Olympic Games.
