Penn State Berks along with Arawjo Tours is pleased to announce the Fifth Annual PSU Berks Alumni Tour Abroad to Athens, Greece in March of 2015.
The 2015 Penn State Berks Ancient Greece Tour will begin in Athens, which over the last ten years has become one of the most exciting destinations in all of Europe. Not only is the archaeological zone of the city a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but the Parthenon, one of the greatest buildings ever erected by man, was also a contender for the newly-declared modern Seven Wonders of the World. The brand new Acropolis Museum is an architectural wonder in and of itself and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens is mind-blowing in terms of the invaluable riches on display within it, including the famous Mycenaean room based on the finds of Heinrich Schliemann and the gorgeous frescoes from the island of Santorini, dating to about 1645 B.C. But apart from its rich historical offerings, Athens is a pulsating city with countless outdoor cafes, tavernas, bars, bouzouki venues and ice cream parlors that are perfect for practicing the longtime Greek habit of people-watching. Greeks are among the friendliest people in the world and will without question make your stay in Athens a memorable one. Our tour will include six nights in this epicenter of Western civilization. Day trips will include a three island tour and visits to the ancient sites of Delphi and Mycenae.
TOUR FEATURES: Round trip air from the USA to Athens, Greece; private motor coach transportation between the airport in Athens and the hotel; SIX nights in a centrally-located First Class Hotel with breakfasts; a walking tour around the archaeological zone; a half day city tour, including visits to the Acropolis and Parthenon; a full day guided tour of the ancient religious site of Delphi; optional tours to the islands of Hydra, Poros and Aegina and to Mycenae; and much more. A pre-departure orientation is also included.
TOUR PRICE: To be established in the spring of 2014.
