Across the Mediterranean, the story of the rise and fall of great empires is told in the art and artifacts of its great cities and islands. The Colosseum in Rome was the Roman Empire’s largest amphitheater, a symbol of the magnificence of this mighty world power, and ancient Greek ruins can be found across the island of Sicily. The Pyramids of Giza outside Cairo are the only remaining monuments of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and Acre on Haifa Bay was the headquarters of the Knights Hospitallers of St. John during the Crusades. The centuries unfold at each new destination on this remarkable journey through time.
The perfect blend of relaxing days at sea and fascinating ports of call, this 21-day voyage of discovery offers a remarkable look at civilization through the ages and the extraordinary feats of mankind. The Hagia Sophia in Istanbul has a total of 104 columns, including columns brought from Egypt and the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus. One of the most important structures in Islamic architecture, the Dome of the Rock was built on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem in 691 AD, and the Ancient Egyptian City of Thebes in Luxor is a striking look at Egyptian civilization at its peak.
AN EXPLORATION OF MYTHICAL LANDS
From Jason and the Argonauts to Noah’s ark, the Black Sea is the scene of many of ancient history’s great legends. On this fascinating journey through time, each moment is an opportunity to create legends of your own. Thought to be the mythological city of Tomis, Constanta was both home and muse to the Roman poet Ovid. The Caucasian State Nature Reserve in Sochi protects several Nordmann firs that are nearly 280 feet in height and purported to be the tallest trees in Europe. Later exiled, the Greek philosopher Diogenes is believed to have been born in Sinop, where today you can visit the archaeological museum, mosque, castle and fortress that tell the stories of this city’s thousands of years of history.
TREASURES OF THE PAST
The ancient ruins of the Roman Forum were previously the center of public life in Rome for centuries, and the Byzantine and Ottoman empires left an array of spectacular temples, mosques and palaces in Istanbul. Life at the height of the Roman Empire is captured in a single harrowing moment in Pompeii, a city near Sorrento that was preserved in volcanic ash for hundreds of years, and on Sardinia the scattered remains of villages dating from the Bronze Age decorate the island. The 4,800-year-old temple Hagar Qim is a beautifully reserved example of the massive scale of Malta’s ancient limestone temples, and the medieval castle of Skiathos was strategically built on a rocky cliff overlooking the Aegean.
ANCIENT EXPLORATION | From the capital city of the Roman Empire to the capital city of the Ottoman Empire, this voyage is a fascinating glimpse at the origins of civilization and the birth of great powers. The Megalithic Temples of Malta date back to 3000 BC and are the oldest freestanding monuments in the world. West of bustling Aghios Nikolaos lies the archaeological site of Knossos, the ancient capital of the Minoan civilization that arose in the Bronze Age. Completed in 438 BC, the Parthenon is an awe-inspiring architectural feat perched at the highest point of the Acropolis in Athens. Originally erected at the temple complex of Karnak in Egypt in 1425 BC, the soaring Obelisk of Theodosius was moved to Istanbul in the late 4th century AD.
