Classroom Views

One of the main reasons I selected College Year in Athens was for the opportunity to take courses that extended beyond the classroom and into the city. While my Economics course (Crisis and Recovery in Greece and Europe) and Modern Greek class takes place within the academic buildings, my Ancient Greek Architecture and Contemporary Urbanism classes are planning on holding many sessions at sites throughout Athens.

Today I went on the first walking tour of Athens with my Contemporary Urbanism class. We ended up walking for over three hours as we circled the Acropolis and crossed through many of Athen’s neighborhoods that I had not visited yet. We ended our tour with a sunset view of the Parthenon from the Filopappou Hill.
