Istanbul, Turkey
Slender minarets and lavish Ottoman palaces form
the skyline of Istanbul, an unforgettable sight as you approach the city on the busy Bosphorus Strait. Tour Topkapi Palace, marvel at the Blue Mosque, admire ornate Hagia So a – and then haggle for spices in the bazaar.
Çanakkale, Turkey
Gateway to the battle elds of Gallipoli and the remnants of ancient Troy, Çanakkale’s attractions span thousands of years of history. Visit the archaeological site of Troy, dating back more than 5,000 years, and the hilltop village of Assos, dating back to 530 BC and crowned by a Doric temple to Athena, the sparkling bay of Edremit far below.
Ashdod, Israel
Ashdod is the jumping off point for some of Israel’s most iconic sites. Visit the Old City of Jerusalem, a deeply spiritual experience, and continue to Bethlehem, birthplace of Christ. Or head for vibrant Tel Aviv, with miles of shimmering beaches, edgy design and cool neighborhoods and in contrast, the winding alleys and Arab markets of Old Jaffa.
Kuşadasi, Turkey
This beach resort town is famous for its beautiful marina and its colorful bazaar but principally because of its proximity to the Hellenistic ruins of Ephesus, the ancient city famed for the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Limassol, Cyprus
The busy beach front town of Limassol is the gateway to the once-thriving city-state of Curium, dating
to the 2nd century BC, an exquisite Greco-Roman amphitheater at its heart. Alternatively, the UNESCO- protected archeological site of Paphos, famous for its Roman mosaics, is an easy day trip, as are the forested Troodos mountains.
Port Said & Alexandria, Egypt
The Great Pyramid of Giza, some 4,000 years old, the majestic Sphinx and the vast metropolis of Cairo are all highlights of your day-long adventure between these two Egyptian ports. The tour also includes Cairo’s Egyptian Museum, housing priceless jewels and artifacts buried with Tutankhamun and other pharaohs, thousands of years ago.
Volos, Greece
Situated between Athens and Thessaloníki, the elegant port of Volos guards the craggy hinterland of Meteora, where early Christians built monasteries atop sheer pinnacles
of sandstone. Visit the UNESCO-listed monasteries and learn about the near-impossible take of constructing these isolated retreats – or spend time in Volos itself, a thriving and cultured city with a beautiful waterfront.
