Greece 2016

In June, Mr. Christopher Ayers, Foreign Language Faculty, accompanied Olivia Venuto, Aingea Venuto, Emily Happeny, Anastasia Mastrocola, and Stephanie Gratiano to Greece for a cultural trip. The group explored all of the country's magnificent wonders, from the ancient to the modern. Below is their travel blog. Enjoy!

 

Mycenae

We’re inside the Treasury of Atreus at Ancient Mycenae, called a tholos, the beehive-shaped tomb supposedly of King Agamemnon. There’s a triangular window above a monolithic lintel that weighs 120 tons and is the largest of its kind in the world! The ceiling is stained with soot from centuries of torches and fires inside the tomb, and its dome was the largest for a millennium until the Pantheon was built in Rome.
