Join us on this special itinerary highlighting a unique combination of antiquities while spending three nights in the heart of timeless Jerusalem and cruising for seven nights from spiritual Israel to breathtaking Cyprus, Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast and Athens, Greece, aboard the exclusively chartered, small ship M.Y. VARIETY VOYAGER, featuring only 36 all ocean-view cabins. Visit up to six UNESCO World Heritage sites and explore the cultural influence of the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires and the Crusades in these important, ancient trade and religious centers. Walk in the footsteps of Alexander the Great and Cleopatra amid magnificent Greco-Roman archaeological and architectural sites, visit two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, see impressive medieval architecture, board a private wooden boat to cruise the winding Dalyan river delta to the majestic fourth-century Lycian tombs carved high into the rocky cliff face, and admire the terraced Bahá’i Gardens, sacred sites around the Sea of Galilee and Jerusalem, holy city to three major monotheistic faiths. A Petra/Amman pre-program and an Athens post-program option are available.
