Itinerary

Day 1 : Rome/ITALY

-- - 6:00 PM

The port of Civitavecchia is the gateway to The Eternal City, where all roads lead. Mad traffic careens past monuments of the great civilizations of the past. You will want to see it all: the soaring inspiration of St. Peter's, the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel; the flow of life along the Spanish Steps, the Coliseum, the Via Veneto and Trevi Fountain. Be sure to leave time for la dolce vita in one of the piazzas.

Day 2 : Amalfi Coast/ITALY

7:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Day 3 : At Sea

Day 4 : Argostoli/GREECE

9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Day 5 : At Sea

Day 6 : Crete

8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

...A proud exhibitor of archeological wonders, beautiful beaches, and gorgeous surroundings, visitors to Crete will find themselves encircled by luxury...natural wonders with plenty of industry to accommodate the tourist's desires to shop, eat, relax, and learn all at once...

Day 7 : Santorini/GREECE

8:00 AM - 7:00 PM

With its steep volcanic flanks looming straight up from the sea, and the tiny white village of Thira clinging high atop the cliffs, Santorini is perhaps the most breathtaking and legendary of all the Greek Isles. To the south is Akrotiri, where recent Minoan excavations support the theories that Santorini might be the fabled lost continent of Atlantis.

Day 8 : Rhodes/GREECE

8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Legend has it that Apollo blessed this isle with sunshine and beauty. True to the myths, the "Island of Roses" is rich in magnificent scenery and umbrella-lined beaches. Take an excursion to Lindos, where high on a hill rises an ancient acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena. You will also want to see the medieval Old Town, once home to the Crusading Knights of St. John, and tour the Grand Master's Palace, an Italian restoration famed for its superb mosaic floors.

Day 9 : Kusadasi/TURKEY

8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

This charming, picturesque resort where Antony and Cleopatra used to vacation is best known as the port for the ancients ruins of Ephesus - one of the world's most wondrous archaeological sites. Explorations should include such masterpieces as the Great Amphitheatre, where St. Paul addressed the Ephesians, the Library of Celsus, and the temples of Athena and Apollo - all connected by marble streets rutted by the wheels of countless chariots.

Day 10 : Mykonos/GREECE

8:00 AM - 8:00 PM

The narrow passageways of Mykonos are a twisted maze of whitewashed houses, miniature churches, lazy windmills, and tiny cafes serving up Greek specialties. Sample the freshest squid or lobster just snatched from the blue Aegean Sea, or shop for typical flokati rugs.

Day 11 : Athens/GREECE

6:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Piraeus is the seaport for Athens, the capital of western civilization, which boasts a fantastic mix of classical ruins and vivacious modern life. In a single day, you can climb the hill of the Acropolis to wonder at the Parthenon, join the lively Athenians in Constitution Square, and then find a welcoming taverna for some spirited bizouki music, plenty of ouzo to drink, and with luck, energetic Greek dancing.

Day 12 : Mykonos/GREECE

8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

The narrow passageways of Mykonos are a twisted maze of whitewashed houses, miniature churches, lazy windmills, and tiny cafes serving up Greek specialties. Sample the freshest squid or lobster just snatched from the blue Aegean Sea, or shop for typical flokati rugs.

Day 13 : At Sea

Day 14 : Limassol/CYPRUS

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, is nearby on this island - the third largest in Europe. Explore what is now called the Medieval Museum, a restored castle where Richard the Lionheart married in 1191. Visit a mosque, browse the local artisan shops and take in the natural and architectural delights of Cyprus.

Day 15 : Jerusalem/ISRAEL

6:00 AM - 9:00 PM

Perched on sand dunes, Ashdod is a gateway to the Holy Land. From here, you can journey to Jerusalem and Bethlehem and walk the Via Dolorosa and see the stations of the cross. Among the many other sites of interest are the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and, in Bethlehem, the Church of the Nativity.

Day 16 : Haifa/ISRAEL

7:00 AM - 9:00 PM

A lovely seaport in its own right, Haifa is a departure point for Tel Aviv and Holy Land sightseeing. Jerusalem beckons with the Mount of Olives and the Western Wall. Jericho, Nazareth, Bethlehem, and the crusader city of Acre are also within reach.

Day 17 : At Sea

Day 18 : Crete

7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

...A proud exhibitor of archeological wonders, beautiful beaches, and gorgeous surroundings, visitors to Crete will find themselves encircled by luxury...natural wonders with plenty of industry to accommodate the tourist's desires to shop, eat, relax, and learn all at once...

Day 20 : Naples/ITALY

7:00 AM - 7:00 PM

One of the most spectacular bays in the world lies in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius. Visit the San Carlo Opera House and the cathedral of San Janarious, or tour the ancient ruins in the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
