TOUR OVERVIEW

Israel is abundant in riches - from its cherished religious sites to archaeological treasures to spectacular wonders. A Holy Land to Jews, Christians and Muslims, this is where biblical places like Jerusalem and Bethlehem come alive. Walk along the Via Dolorosa, visit the Jewish Wailing Wall, travel to Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus, view the ruins of the ancient synagogue in Capernaum and wade into the Jordan River at the famous Baptismal site in Galilee. Then be awed by the symbol of Athens - the Parthenon. Be inspired on Patmos, where John the Divine wrote the book of Revelations, become acquainted with the ancient civilization of the Minoans at the Palace of Knossos and sip local wine while watching the sunset over the caldera in Santorin – all this and more as you sail the Aegean Sea.
