Miami Set for August Foreign Tour to France and Greece
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s basketball team will take part in a foreign tour in the summer of 2023, as announced by the athletic department Wednesday.
Miami will depart on Aug. 2 for Paris, where it will spend three days before heading to Greece for the remainder of the 11-day, 10-night trip.
“We are so grateful for the opportunity to visit the amazing cities of Paris, Mykonos and Athens as a team this summer,” head coach Katie Meier said. “Participating in foreign tours like this gives our student-athletes the opportunity to explore and learn from different cultures, while creating memories that will last a lifetime.
The Hurricanes begin their tour with a four-day trip to Paris where they will visit the Eiffel Tower, the Arc De Triomphe and take part in a Seine River Cruise among other highlights.
Miami will then hop on a flight to the Greek Island of Mykonos, where the Hurricanes will spend two nights before traveling to Athens for the remainder of the foreign tour. While in Athens, the Hurricanes will have the opportunity to visit the Pantheon, the Acropolis and the Panathenaic Olympic Stadium.
The team will play three games while abroad, one in Paris and two in Athens.
Anthony Travel will lead the program’s foreign tour and fans are welcome to join Miami on the trip. Double occupancy rooms are $14,000 total for the entire trip ($7,000 per person), while single occupancy rooms are $8,500.
