Uncover the ancient sites of Greece and Turkey

A cruise on the Bosphorus is a fantastic way to see the varied skyline of Istanbul from a different perspective.

The Mediterranean Sea has played an important role throughout history, enabling the exchange of culture and trade between the continents. This voyage of discovery includes six sightseeing tours, and visits some of the region’s most fascinating archaeological sites and monuments. Greece has one of the richest historical legacies in the world, as well as an enviable climate, laid-back culture, delicious cuisine and beautiful natural scenery. During your visit you can look forward to exploring the impressive relics of Delos, the ancient ruins of Knossos Palace and the mighty Acropolis of Athens with its famous Parthenon.

While in Turkey, a visit to Canakkale gives you the chance to go in search of the legendary city of Troy, brought to life through stories of love, war and heroism in Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. You’ll also visit Istanbul, the country’s melting pot of civilization, where Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman Empires have left an indelible mark. This remarkable city has a wealth of culture and traditions, as well as a variety of architecture that features a blend of ancient and modern. Perhaps see more of Istanbul’s treasures during a visit to Hagia Sophia or, for a different perspective of the city, take to the water for a cruise on the Bosphorus.
