Santorini, Rethymno and more!
The Summer Odyssey will take our students on an exciting trip to some of the best Greek islands: Crete, Santorini and Naxos. The students will enjoy their dazzling natural beauty, incredible history and culture, and delicious local cuisine. While visiting Crete, home of the ancient Minoan civilization, we will explore the mountainous range of Samaria, Elafonissi natural park, the Venetian fortress of Heraklion, and countless other sites. The students will also learn about Crete’s diverse ecosystems and help local environmental experts to research and preserve them.
Throughout their journey to these spectacular island destinations, our students will find new inspiration to explore the fascinating Universe of Ancient Greek Mythology. There is no better setting to discuss such amazing characters and stories as Hercules and his 12 labors, from capturing the Golden Hind to cleaning the Augean Stables; Prometheus, who created mankind from clay and stole fire from the Gods; Jason and the Argonauts, who embarked on a quest for the Golden Fleece; Perseus and Medusa, a monster who turned people into stone; Daedalus and his son Icarus, who learned to fly by using hand-made wings. These and other fascinating myths will be discussed by the staff and the students.
