It's hard to overstate the impact that educational travel can have on students. Whether hiking the Sacred Way to the Oracle of Apollo in Delphi, gazing up at Michelangelo's frescoes on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, or examining the marbles of the Parthenon from a foot away, studying in Greece and Italy brings history to life in a way simply can't be achieved in the classroom. Whether you're interested in a for credit college course or a week long tour for your high school students, Sofia Travel Co. has the experience and the expertise to provide your students with an unforgettable academic experience in Greece, Italy and Turkey.
Centered around our full academic curriculum, our expert faculty have a passion for teaching. Rather than hand your group off to local guides, our experienced faculty build a comprehensive narrative from day one that will bring the 3,000 history of the Greek and Italian people to life.
Prior to the tour, we work hand in hand with you to develop an itinerary to specifically bolster your course's curriculum and educational goals. Whether that includes an excursion to the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua to see Giottto's frescos, an exploration of the Byzantine sites of Thessaloniki, or a visit to the Greek Orthodox monasteries of Meteora, we can make your educational plans come to fruition.
One of the greatest educational experiences you can give your students is the opportunity to be emmersed in another culture. From haggling in the local market to attending a Greek Orthodox service in a 1,000 year old chapel to learning traditional dances that date back to the Ottoman Empire, our tours integrate unique and unforgettable cultural experience that will make your students citizens of the world.
