Land of Alexander the Great

This is a remarkable, historic, full-day excursion combining the glories of Pella with those of Vergina, and it includes lunch overlooking the stunning Aliakmon Valley. We begin with a 45-minute drive by air-conditioned motorcoach to Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great and the second capital of ancient Macedonia. Alexander, Emperor in the 4th Century BC, was undefeated in battle and is widely considered one of history’s most successful military commanders. For 250 years Pella was the cultural center of the Ancient Greek world and as the seat of the royal family, enjoyed its greatest prosperity during the reign of Alexander. Archaeological excavations have uncovered public buildings and luxurious private homes with intricate marble-floor mosaics along with a plethora of delicate clay figurines and vases. We have the opportunity to view these and many other treasures before heading to the city of Veria where we will enjoy a three-course lunch will be served at a local restaurant overlooking the immense Aliakmon Valley.

It is a glorious blend of beauty, history, and culture, framed by vast and stunning sea views and is considered to be Greece’s cultural capital. Our panoramic tour begins along the waterfront boulevard to Aristotelous Square, named for Macedonia’s leading philosopher Aristotle. We will see Thessaloniki’s most famous sight, the White Tower, part of the lower city’s original fortification which has also served as a prison. We hear the fascinating narrative by our guide as we take in many of the city’s highlights including, the Galerius Arch, the Rotunda, and numerous neo-Classical buildings. We visit the 5th century St. Demetrius’ Cathedral as well and stop up to the Upper Town for sweeping views of the city with Mount Olympus and the Thermaic Gulf in the background.
Adult Price: € 67

The Royal Tombs of Vergina

This a fascinating half day, where you'll step back time. Vergina was the first ancient capital of the Greek Kingdom of Macedonia and we have the privilege of visiting the Royal Tombs. The most important tomb is that of Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great. We will be accompanied into the museum by our guide to look at some of King Philip’s most important possessions, including the king’s shield and gold-trimmed breastplate. Legend has it that the golden chest containing the king’s bones was washed with wine and wrapped in purple cloth. We will find out how this was unearthed before being able to discover it for ourselves. Also on display are gold diadems of unparalleled artistry, lavish wall paintings and a golden wreath of oak leaves. This is also the site of an extensive royal palace and one of the most important museums in Greece. The area was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status as “an exceptional testimony to a significant development in European civilization.
Adult Price: € 74

Istanbul

Available on Day 5

Ottoman Empire and Byzantine Legacy Tour

(Approximately 9 hours) There is no place on earth like Istanbul and our nine-hour excursion will immerse you in this vibrant, colorful and fascinating city straddling the Bosphorus, at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Many empires have held sway in the place once called Constantinople including the Greeks, Romans, Venetians and the Ottomans. The historic heart of old Istanbul is the Sultanahmet district where we will find remnants of the Byzantine Hippodrome where horse and chariot racing once drew crowds of 100,000 or more. Nearby is the Kaiser’s German fountain, the bronze Serpent Column of Delphi, the Egyptian Obelisk and the Walled Obelisk of Constantine VII. Recognized across the globe is the Mosque of Sultan Ahmet, perhaps more popularly known as the Blue Mosque because of the stunning hand-painted blue tiles inside. It also has six minarets. Whether you are inside or outside it is well worth taking a few minutes just to gaze and let the amazing beauty sink in. The grave of Sultan Ahmet lies inside the mosque. Across the square sits the imposing Church of the Holy Wisdom of God or Hagia Sophia, once a church, then an Ottoman imperial mosque and now a museum. It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture. After lunch, we will visit the incomparable Topkapi Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If all this still leaves you with a thirst for more discovery you can do no better than explore the sights, sounds and colors of Istanbul’s incredible Grand Bazaar, with 4000 shops and stalls, 58 streets under one roof, 400,000 visitors daily and millions of things for sale. Not least carpets, rugs, jewelry and leather. This excursion will give a taste of Istanbul you are unlikely to forget.
Adult Price: € 124

Kavala

Available on Day 6

Greek Wine & Holy Water: Philippi & Beyond

Our half-day tour takes us from the ruins of Philippi to the site of the first European baptism, to the vineyards of Drama, tracing the evolution of a region and the civilizations which called it home. We begin in Philippi, where King Philip II of Macedon celebrated success in the neighboring gold mines, and where Rome truly became an empire after wiping out the last of the Republicans. From here it’s a short drive to St. Lydia’s Baptistery, where we follow in the footsteps of Paul the Apostle. Then for the rest of our morning, we uncover the secrets that go into the favorite Greek bouquets, including Assyrtiko, Xinomavro and Moschato. Naturally, there will be samples, along with cold cuts, cheese and sommelier stories.
Adult Price: € 78

Nestos River and Colors of Xanthi

As you get to know Xanthi, you’ll quickly understand why locals call it the city of the thousand colors. Having been destroyed, rebuilt and expanded time and again, due to raids, civil war and earthquakes, to say Xanthi is rich in diversity would be an understatement. In the Old Town, no two houses are the same. And as you listen to stories of Thracians and Ottomans, you’ll see their lingering influence in the architecture around you. Then on the outskirts of town, time skips forward to the late industrial age. Tobacco trading helped Xanthi bloom in the late 19th Century, and the tobacco warehouses here tell a vivid story of the path to prosperous times. Other highlights unique to Xanthi include the Foundation of Thracian Art and Tradition, the Castle of Xantheia, and the home of Greek composer Hadjidakis. On our way to Xanthi, we’ll stop to marvel at the Nestos River, the ecological pride of North Eastern Greece. We cross at the boundary between the Kavala and Xanthi prefectures, where tree-lined banks and cliffsides teem with life. Pausing our journey to take it all in, this is the ideal place to share a restorative moment with nature or take a few scenic selfies.
Adult Price: € 67

Prophets, Legends & Heroes of Philippi

Overlooking the bay and coastal plain of Kavala is the hilltop town of Philippi, a significant site for the success of growing empires. It was here that King Philip II of Macedon celebrated success in the neighboring gold mines, renaming the conquered settlement after himself. It was here too that Rome truly became an empire when Julius Caesar’s Republican assassins made their final stand – a staggering defeat – against Mark Antony and Octavian Caesar. As we discover the archaeological city on your guided tour, meander through the ruins of a well-preserved Roman forum, early Christian basilicas, and the Theater. We also get a taste of everyday ancient life in the form of public baths, latrines and gymnasiums. Apostle Paul’s journey brought him to Philippi during his first mission, and your guide is a fountain of knowledge on the subject. They’ll show you where he preached, where he spent time in jail, and after a short coach ride to St. Lydia’s Baptistery, where he is said to have performed the first European conversion. Visitors often say they can still feel the holy aura of the site today, thousands of years later.
Adult Price: € 67

Heraklion

Available on Day 7

Minoan Palace Of Knossos - 1st European Civilization

Volos

Available on Day 8

The Spectacular Rocks and “Hanging” Monasteries of Meteora

(app. 7hrs) The imposing, untamed scenery with the immense rocks casting their shadows upon the setting brings out the unique geology of the place and draws the eyes upwards, towards the sky. Meteora, in Central Greece outside Kalambaka, is spread across an area of 18.6 miles and is characterized by a unique complex of steep, immense rocks which reach 1,312 feet in height! At the feet of these rock giants sleeps the picturesque village Kastraki. Built atop some of these rocks you will find the Monasteries of Meteora, a monastic complex of incomparable aesthetics and spiritual energy, the second most important in Greece after Mt. Athos. There were once 30 historical monasteries, but today only 6 of them still function. They are listed as UNESCO “World Heritage Sites” since 1988. These six monasteries are decorated with exquisite frescoes, and are restored and open to the public. These are: The Monastery of Rousanou, the Monastery of Varlaam, the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, the Convent of St. Stephen, the Monastery of Anapausas and the Monastery of the Transfiguration of Jesus, known as “Great Meteoron”.
Adult Price: € 85

Volos & Mt. Pelion

(4 hours) On this excursion, we will have the opportunity to travel through the ages, both to prehistoric times, but also to the tradition and culture of Volos and Pelion. The sense of mystery engendered by the mountain’s impenetrable forests has given rise to many legends. It was said by the ancients that during the battle between the gods and the giants, the latter tried to challenge Olympus by piling Pelion in Ossa. Mount Pelion was also the remote home of Chiron, the wisest of the centaurs, who played an important role in the Greek fables. Moreover, Pelion was the mountain where the Gods held their weddings and beauty contests. We will drive up to one of the most interesting villages of Pelion, Makrinitsa at an altitude of 2,300 feet. We shall leave the coach in the square at the entrance to the village and take a stroll through the narrow streets among the splendid old houses. Owing to the abundant water resources, they are also scattered; many are built in the traditional style with jutting upper stories, supported on wooden sorbels, and slate roofs, with overhanging saves. The main square (platia) is especially attractive due to its fountain, plane trees and tiny church (13th c.). There will be plenty of time for those wishing to stroll along the cobble paths of the village, visit the museum of culture and tradition, or just have coffee at the square of the village, gazing at Volos and the Gulf. Return to the ship.
Adult Price: € 65

Adult Price: € 48

See the Sanctuary of Apollo, The Stadium, Temple and the Museum of Delphi - home to more than 10,000 artifacts.
