Human Development Tourism Program

Educational tourism services aim to offer people the chance to be introduced to the CAVE Approach© while acquiring a wider experience of the ancient classical and modern Greek culture, and enjoying creative leisure times. These services are provided under the Human Development (HD) Tourism Program we have designed which connects nature, modern culture and the tangible cultural heritage met in museums, archeological places etc. to the Aristotelian virtues and the HD’s values and principles. The HD Tourism program of course contributes to the universal project “World Virtues for World Vitality(WVWV) in which world’s communities might participate with similar approaches relying on their intangible cultural heritage and their corresponding HD Tourism Programs, aiming to the creation of a common universal culture for the promotion of HD.

The HD Tourism program includes three different types of services in order to best address your unique needs and preferences:

Standard Experience: Athens Calling

You can experience the Greek culture and learn about the Aristotelian virtues and how you can live a eudaimonic and happy life, by choosing a very unique way to spend your days in Athens.
In a 4-day program, you will discover the secrets of eudaimonic life. Dining at astonishing Athenian roof terraces, being guided to mystical spots of the historical centre of Athens, exploring the Acropolis Museum and participating in other recreational activities will offer you the opportunity to elaborate on the notion of the eudaimonic life and experience the Greek culture with all your five senses.
For your residence you can choose micro luxury studios or a 4 or 5-star boutique hotel, where comfort and minimal design meet tradition. We guarantee that our suggestions for your accommodation will be something to remember. Prices differ according to the accommodation options you select.
