“HERC inspired me to keep looking for opportunities for meaningful travel experiences, which are not just about visiting a place but becoming part of it.” – Gabrielle Vidella, University of Arizona

“I enjoyed the constant interaction with Greek students. I learned so much about Modern Greek language and culture and what it’s like to live in the country today. This kind of cultural immersion did not happen for me in several other study abroad programs” – Zoé Elise Thomas, University of Washington

We are a 3 minutes’ walk from Syntagma (Constitution) train/metro station, and 5 to 10 minutes from the major archaeological sites of Athens (Acropolis, Agora, Kerameikos). HERC can be reached easily by train/metro from both Athens airport and the port of Piraeus. From Syntagma Square, there are buses and trolleys to all destinations.

The surrounding area of Plaka is a pleasant and safe environment full of cafes, restaurants and local tavernas. Apart from its proximity to the major archaeological sites of Athens, Plaka is an old Athenian neighborhood inhabited by traditional Greek families and visited daily by large numbers of Greeks and foreigners for educational and recreational purposes. Plaka is also adjacent to the old neighborhood of Monastiraki and close to Psiri, which are well known for their markets and art galleries.
