Join Rebecca Worsham, assistant professor in the department of Classical Languages and Literatures at Smith, on a 10-day family adventure exploring the rich archaeological history of the Greece. Known as the “Cradle of Western Civilization,” Greece is one of the best destinations for exploration-based learning and adventure. Begin in Athens, where an overland journey takes us across the Corinth Canal to the ancient site of Nemea and to the colorful seaport town of Nafplio. Then, set sail for a seven-night cruise around the stunning, sun-drenched coast of the Peloponnese Peninsula aboard the modern, privately chartered 18-cabin, three-masted sailing yacht, Running on Waves. Take a boat ride through the gleaming stalagmites and stalactites in the Diros Caves, and float in the pristine blue waters surrounding the Mani Peninsula.  Enjoy the enticing blend of diverse cultural influences, natural beauty, and archaeological treasures that Ancient Greece offers. Space is limited on this unique family program, so we recommend that you reserve your space soon.
