* Visit the heart of ancient democracy in the Athenian Agora.
* Marvel at Byzantine mosaics and icons--and their modern descendants. 
* Walk in the path of St. Paul at Corinth.
* Soak up the sun and enjoy some real Greek food in beautiful Nafplio.

* Learn about the place of modern Greece in the modern world.
