Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating back to the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC, the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Today, with equal measures of grunge and grace, Athens is a heady mix of history and edginess. Cultural and social life plays out amid, around ancient landmarks. The magnificent Acropolis, visible from almost every part of the city, reminds Greeks daily of their cultural heritage and of their capital’s many transformations.
A large part of the town’s historic center has been converted into a 3-kilometer pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites, reconstructing – to a large degree – the ancient landscape.
Course venue in Koukaki, the center of Athens
In the shadow of the Acropolis, the neighborhood of Koukak is the lesser-known sister of Makriyianni (400m distance) which boasts the elegant Acropolis Museum on the sweeping cobbled esplanade of Dionysiou Areopagitou.
It is best known for its staggering popularity as an Airbnb destination ranking in the top five most interesting neighborhoods in the world to stay. It isn’t difficult to understand why! By night, the warmly lit Filopappou monument, the colorful lights of small bars and the chatter of locals unwinding after a day’s work will leave you feeling positively charmed. All of our courses will be held in Trii Art Hub, a historical building on Drakou 9 Street that constitutes a point of reference for Koukaki, opposite of Ν.M.Μ.Α.(National Museum of Modern Art).
Free time activities included:
one guided tour of the city (a three-hour walking tour that will give you an insight of the significance of the historic monuments of Acropolis as well as other significant sights of the historic center of Athens including the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Agora and Plaka).
one full-day excursion in Greece (a visit to the Acropolis Museum)
All our courses in Athens will take place either in the Morning (9:00 13:45) or in the Afternoon (14:00 – 18:45) depending on classroom and trainer availability.
Any other course can be offered in Athens upon request. If you desire more information, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Not an EU teacher? This course is for you too!
Although our courses are designed with the European Union Erasmus + program in mind, they are also open to teachers from all non-E.U. countries. Over the last few years we have welcomed increasing numbers of teachers from the USA and Japan, among others.
