When they visited the Acropolis they were joined by Zita, a friend of another Girtonian who was not on the trip.
In 1949 Anne visited Italy and Sicily, again with fellow Girton classicists. On this occasion she travelled with Alison Evans [Girton 1946] and they met up in Rome with Veronica Tillyard [Girton 1941] and Sheila Spire [Girton 1945].
