The roots of Western civilization will be explored during a special 14-day Bjorklunden seminar to Greece April 21 to May 4, 2012. Sponsored by Lawrence University, the seminar will be led by Dan Taylor, professor emeritus of classics at Lawrence.
The Greece seminar will include four days in Athens with guided tours of the famed Acropolis, home of the awe-inspiring Parthenon, the nearby Agora, where Socrates mentored his young admirers and the recently renovated National Archaeological Museum, regarded as one of the top 10 museums of its kind in the world.
Other seminar highlights include trips to Mycenae, one of the country’s most ancient cities, Epidaurus home of the most well-preserved theatre of the ancient world, Nafplion, Greece’s first capital and Olympia, home of the original Olympic games and the Temple of Zeus.
As part of the seminar, participants also will enjoy a four-day cruise of the Aegean Sea aboard the Louis Cruise’s Majesty, with stops at the islands of Mykonos, Rhodes, Crete and others before returning to Athens.
Seminar reservations are limited to 36. For additional tour details, including accommodations and costs or to book a reservation, visit http://www.lawrence.edu/dept/bjork/ and click on the link on the bottom left corner of the page. Or contact Nada Vostmyer at TravelStore, 800.266.1438.
