Although international travel is not an option for many at the moment, followers of CYA Professor Robert Pitt were able to journey to Athens through the eyes of travelers from antiquity to the nineteenth century during his lecture Travels to Athens from Cyriac to Baedeker on Wednesday 8 July 2020. The lecture, which is part of CYA’s Virtual Lecture Series, highlighted the rich history of travel and tourism in Greece through the study of travel writing from many different periods. The lecture was moderated by CYA Professor Christine Harrison, who offers a course in travel writing.
