This is the blog for the Newington College 2014 Classics Tour. Here each student on the tour will have an opportunity to write about their experiences while abroad.
The tour will travel through Italy, Greece and Crete in June and July 2014. We will visit and learn about dozens of the world’s most famous ancient landmarks. The tour will also cover numerous modern historical sites and immerse students in contemporary Greek and Italian culture. We’ll do our best to sink ourselves into the history, the art, the food, the language, the the football, the landscape and the customs of the Mediterranean.
Three staff members from Newington will accompany the thirty boys on the tour; they are Alex Pyne, Mark Chambers and Alex Fisher.
