7 nights / 8 days on the MS Celestyal Crystal to the Greek Islands, Egypt, Israel, Cyprus and Turkey
Athens, Alexandria, Port Said, Ashdod, Limassol, Rhodes, Kuşadasi
Included in the Itinerary:
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.
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.
A visit to the old city of Rhodes is like stepping back to the time of the Crusades as you stroll the polished cobblestones of the Street of the Knights and explore the medieval Palace of the Grand Masters. Or join an excursion to the acropolis of Lindos, perched high on a hilltop overlooking the sparkling Bay of St Paul.
Port Piraeus is about 15 miles from Athens city center. Approximately 40 minutes drive.
