Yesterday and Today

Treat yourself to a fun-filled exploration of select Greek islands, both their ancient highlights and modern allures. Each class session begins by surveying the distinctive geographical and landscape features of individual islands, which are remarkably distinct from each other. We then view the ancient artistic and literary highlights, followed by the fantastic drives and views, beaches and water sports, delightful dining, waterfront areas, and other cultural amenities each island offers. From the Cyclades to Crete to the northern Dodecanese islands, you’ll discover fascinating details of Greek life past and present. If you are planning a trip or dream about doing so, you’ll enjoy this armchair adventure.
