After a long journey, the School of the Ozarks senior class trip group safely arrived in Athens on a spectacularly beautiful Sunday afternoon. We met our guide, Al Philipp, and made our way to central Athens, where we settled in to our hotel, which is modern and comfortable.

After dinner and some quick announcements, the group went up to the rooftop patio to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Acropolis, which was dramatically illuminated.

Today we will visit Corinth, Mycenae, and Nafplion before returning to Athens for dinner and a walk to the Olympic stadium of 1896.
