Classics

 

 

Sadly, fewer schools than ever are teaching Latin and precious few Greek.  For those of us with an abiding love of the classics and of the civilisations that they describe, little compares with a study visit to the Mediterranean lands where they flourished.

 

Although a longer stay is preferable, as little as three days in the Bay of Naples area, or in Rome or Athens, will give a real insight into the ancestors who gifted us philosophy, science, democracy and literature.
