This 12 day visit of Athens will be a thoughtful exploration of the preservation and conservation issues facing the city. The program involves a series of lectures and tours lead by Athenian architects, historians, conservators and planners who have been dealing with the problem of preserving monuments and cultural heritage in the midst of a growing modern city.

Subjects covered will include: history and evolution of the city; art and culture of the city over time; conservation of the major archaeological monuments; the modern city and the archaeological areas; modern urban development and architecture.
