Student Trips to Athens
Athens is not only the capital of Greece, it’s also one of the world’s most historic cities. Once home to the ancient Greeks it has an abundance of archaeological monuments from the golden age of Athens.
Seen from almost everywhere in the city, is the incredible ancient structure that is the Acropolis. This UNESCO world heritage site, is Greece’s most famous attraction and it offers your students an amazing cultural and historical learning experience. It’s an iconic landmark that embodies ancient Greek architecture and its museum has a full exhibition of artefacts to showcase the glory of Ancient Athens.
A visit to the National Archaeological Museum has an array of artefacts and exhibits; encompassing scenes on Greek vases to illuminate daily life or mythology, your students can gain an extraordinary insight into the Mycenaean world.
The picturesque Plaka area of Athens has an alluring quality that’s hard to resist. A maze of narrow, cobbled streets house traditional tavernas and coffee shops, where you can enjoy a beverage or some delicious meze, before exploring the ancient sites and bustling squares.
Just a short drive outside of Athens, there’s a host of other sites to inspire your students; the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion and the Ancient Site of Agora & the Temple of Hephaistos, are stunning examples from the glory years of Ancient Athens.

"Annabelle was very pleasant, friendly and helpful. We had a few changes to deal with along the way such as increasing the group size by ten and this was all dealt with very smoothly. The online My Tour Manager was very easy to use and helpful. It was always easy to contact Anabelle who dealt patiently with all our queries and requests."
