Detailed Port Descriptions

Athens (Piraeus), Greece

Start your journey in Piraeus with an archaeological walk past landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, and of course, the Acropolis. Afterwards, head to the Central Market for a feast of fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese. Finally, check out a local taverna where you can rub elbows with the locals well into the wee hours of the night.

Alexandria, Egypt

Though little remains of the ancient city of Alexandria, as the new one was built on top of it, it remains a gateway to Cairo, the pyramids and the fascinating culture of one of the world's oldest civilizations.

Port Said, Egypt

Port Said makes for the perfect place to watch huge ships wait in line to enter the Suez Canal. Explore the Great Pyramid of Giza, go on a desert Jeep safari, see the treasures of Tutankhamun at the Egyptian Museum, and even take a cruise down the river Nile.

Jerusalem (Ashdod), Israel

This ancient holy city won't fail to move you, regardless of your faith. From the Western Wall, to the Dome of the Rock, to the last remnants of the Temple of the Jews, Jerusalem is a woven tapestry of religion and history. Head to the modern Israel  Museum and see the famous Dead Sea Scrolls for yourself.

Haifa, Israel

Haifa is a modern city and seaport on the slopes of Mount Carmel, and is an excellent base for visiting biblical and archaeological sites. Within easy reach are the Galilee, Nazareth, the River Jordan, as well as Safed, a holy mountaintop city steeped in the mysticism of Kabbalah. Today it is also immersed in the arts, and studios and galleries abound.

Limassol, Cyprus

Limassol’s quaint narrow streets are filled with lively character, tavernas, and shops, where you can find fresh local produce, famous wines, and fine handmade goods. Visit sites like Kolossi Castle, a former Crusader stronghold; the Grand Mosque in the old Turkish quarter; the Archaeological Museum; and Limassol Castle, allegedly where Richard the Lionheart married his queen during the Third Crusade.
