Greece Through the Eyes of Travelers

Conducted in English

Greece has long been considered a great challenge and a place of spiritual intrigue to its many visitors. The land of gods and myths, of a glorious past and a cosmopolitan present, it has lured generations of the finest British and American authors and poets. In this course, you will have the opportunity to explore and better understand the idea of modern Greece as it is reflected in the works of Anglo-American travelers. Living, reading, and writing about the places you are encountering will make your own experiences of those places much more exciting and meaningful. After all, as Henry Miller states, “Greece is like the projection of your consciousness.”
