Parallel activities
The programme includes visits to Amphipolis, Philippi & Kavala, Western Macedonia, and Pella, Aigai (Vergina) & Dion.
Details of other cultural and recreational activities (lectures, discussions, folk-dancing classes, museum visits, guided tours, shadow theatre, etc.) are included in the printed programme which students will receive on arrival.

Students Accommodation
Summer School students will stay in twin-bedded rooms at the Xenia Helios Hotel, Peraia, Thessaloniki, which is located at the seaside.
