FROM ATHENS TO PAROS ISLAND
HISA has established a smooth and secure arrival and transit arrangement that makes for an exciting and pleasant welcome to Greece and Paros island. Upon arrival in Athens, HISA can arrange for a private taxi-limousine service to meet students at the airport arrival hall. Students should arrange a flight schedule that takes them to Athens one or two days prior to the program's start. HISA teachers will be in Athens to acclimate students and lead them on a tour of the Acropolis for the full semester students. HISA can arrange for reservations at a family run Hostel, located just below the Acropolis in the safe and well-lit Plaka district. Teachers will accompany the students on the ferry to Paros, a trip of about four hours. Throughout the year, the ferry transits to and from Athens and Paros every morning and evening.
