Daily road trip at Sounion and at the SNFCC

Under the framework of Erasmus+ programme, the Erasmus+ office organized a daily road trip to the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion and at the SNFCC for the incoming students and teachers of the academic year 2016 – 17. We had the chance to enjoy the unique view from the Cape Sounion and stroll around the archaeological site. After our “typical Greek food break”, we visited the SNFCC and we attended the Renzo Piano’s exhibition, who is the architect of the project. Teachers and students from Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Russia, Jordan, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Spain, Lithuania, Italy, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania and Germany had a relaxing time before the end of the programme and their departure from Greece.
