The Experience

Vatican to the Bosphorus. This far-reaching voyage sails to great sites of the ancient Mediterranean in Italy, Greece and Turkey-a real adventure for cultural travelers. From Rome, your first stop is Sorrento, a place to savor limoncello and dramatic Amalfi Coast views or set out for ancient Pompeii. In Siracusa, visit the old town of Ortygia or Noto, a Roman-era city rebuilt after an earthquake in 1693 and valued for its ornate Baroque architecture.

Greek treasures await: the Samaria Gorge and Chania’s ancient Venetian Harbor in Crete, Oia Village on the caldera’s rim in Santorini, and the Monastery of St. John and village of Chora on Patmos. In Turkey don’t miss the magnificent ruins of Pergamon and Ephesus, and explore Istanbul’s great mosques, palaces and fabulous cuisine with an overnight stay.
