Archaeological Park of Plato’s Academy

This is the first ‘university’ of the Western world where the foundations of Western science and philosophy were laid two-and-a-half millennia ago. The most famous student during that time was Aristotle, who after studying at the Academy for almost twenty years went on to tutor Alexander the Great in 343 BCE, and then started to teach at the Lyceum in 335/334 BCE.
