Day 1: Departure
Mediterranean adventure begins with an overnight flight to Athens.
Day 2: Arrival Athens & Free Time
Arrive in Greece and transfer to our hotel. We will be staying in the
ancient city of Athens tonight. Upon arriving at our hotel, we will have
time to unpack, freshen up and enjoy a sumptuous meal.
Day 3: Athens & Cruise Departure
In the morning we will begin by enjoying a wonderful breakfast, then
taking a full tour of Athens. We will see the Agora where Paul entered
into discussions preaching Jesus and the resurrection to the ancient
Athenians. Mars Hill is nearby where Paul was brought before the counsel
so they could hear ore of the new doctrine, he was preaching. A guided
tour of the national Museum is another highlight to see significant
archeological finds from centuries past. Other sites of interest include
the Olympic Stadium, Adrian's Arch, the Acropolis and Parthenon. This
evening we will board our ship for the Mediterranean cruise. We will
overnight on the ship.
Day 4: Corfu
Day 5: Venice
Day 6: Dudrovnik
Day 7: Katakolon
Day 8: Istanbul
we will arrive in our next port of call, the cosmopolitan city of
Istanbul, Turkey's jewel on the Bosporus. The blend of East and West in
this city has resulted in some of the most magnificent architecture in
the world, including the Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. At the Topkapi
museum the treasures of the Ottoman empire are on view. Bargain for your
own treasures in one of the Grand Bazaar's 5,000 shops. In the evening
rejoin the ship as we depart for our next destination.
Day 9: Mykonos
We wake at the
beautiful windmill island of Mykonos. A tour is available for
those who do not wish to walk along the colorful waterfront shopping
afternoon we will stop at the island of Santorini. This is perhaps the
most breathtaking of all the Greek islands. The town with its
white-washed houses, narrow streets and open-air cafes clings to a steep
cliff accessible by cable-car or mule. In nearby Akrotiri recent
excavations support the theory Santorini might be the fabled lost
continent of Atlantis. In the afternoon we will return to the ship to
enjoy dinner as we cruise towards our next destination. We will
overnight on board. Enjoy the sunset over the picturesque harbor,
then return to the ship for dinner and our final night on board as we
sail back to Athens.
Day 10: Corinth
morning we will arrive on the Greek mainland. We will depart by coach
for the city of Corinth. Shortly before arriving at the city we will
stop at the Corinthian Canal, a construction involving an excavation of
260 ft. in depth and done between 1882-1883. The engineering skill and
intellect of these people are evident in the water systems that still
flow from ancient to modern day. Walk along the stone streets where Paul
once walked as he nurtured this city's mission church. We will return to
our hotel in Athens for the night.
Day 11: Delphi
morning we will travel by coach to Delphi, the ancient sanctuary of
Apollo. Here we can see the Temple of Apollo and Castalia Springs as
well as their marvelous museum, home of the world-famous
"Charioteer," a bronze statue so delicate that you can even
see the individual eyelashes. We will then return to our hotel in Athens
for the night.
Day 12: Homeward
morning we will depart for our return flight to the United States.
Having traveled through this area of Biblical renown, you will most
certainly return refreshed and invigorated in spirit.
