All museum supporters are invited to join us on this custom trip with Slater staff, docents and UConn Professor Ilias Tomazos to Greece. This is your chance to visit the sites where many of our sculptures were born!

  • Evening cooking class and wine tasting.
  • One day Saronic Gulf Cruise to the islands of Hydra, Poros and Aegina.
  • Expert advice, and insights to modern Greece.

The trip cost will include all lodging, transportation, entrance fees and two meals a day, and is projected to be under $3500. The itinerary includes time each day for individual exercise, rest or recreation. Please call (860) 425-5563 to indicate your interest.
