Greece, abundant in historical sites and monuments, has long been a popular destination for school groups. Athens may be a busy, modern, capital city offering a warm, friendly welcome, but its classical past is never too far away.
In stark contrast to Athens, Tolon is the quintessential Greek fishing village and the perfect base to explore the historical delights of the Peloponnese, as well as to relax and soak up the Greek way of life. We offer you a range of single and multi-centre tours to Greece, allowing you to choose how many classical sites you would like to visit.
The Acropolis is home to a number of classical ruins including, most famously, the Parthenon. You will also find the Erechteon, the Temple of Athena, the Propylea and the Acropolis Museum. Below the Acropolis are a number of other classical ruins including Hadrian’s Arch, the Roman Forum and the Temple of Zeus.
