About the trip

Overview and participants

Starting in the picturesque seaside town of Nafplio and ending in the great metropolis of Thessaloniki, the "Greece through the Ages: Cultures, Religions, and Writings for Students and Alumni" travel-study tour takes as its theme the development of cultures, religions, scripts, and writing technologies throughout the ages. Participants visit museums and historical sites along the way, where they have the chance to get up-close views of clay tablets, scrolls, illuminated manuscripts, and more. Greece's stunning landscapes, its long history, and its wonderful late-spring season, along with the company of Harvard students and alumni, set the stage for a unique intergenerational academic experience.
