Greece & Italy Trip Summer 2024
This trip to Greece and Italy will explore treasures of the ancient world from both a biblical and classical perspective. The trip will begin in Greece touring Thessaloniki, Philippi, Berea, Vergina, Meteora, Delphi, Athens, and Corinth. Students will see the places and structures where Western civilization began, and they will also follow the footsteps of Paul as he traveled through Greece carrying the gospel message.
The group will fly from Greece to Rome and begin with an orientation to Italy and an examination of Paul’s letter to the Romans. They will be in Rome and Florence for four days visiting the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, the ancient Roman Forum, the Temple of Caesar, Senate House, early church sites, the Vatican Museum, St. Peter’s Basilica, Duomo, Michelangelo’s David, and much more before departing from Rome to return to the USA.
Clearly one of the most captivating aspects of the trip for students is to see in person so much of what they have already encountered in their classroom studies. Surely both the Christian and classical elements of our Geneva education enable our students to be most appreciative of what they experience.
