Daily Itinerary

Day 1 Depart the USA

Depart the USA on an overnight flight.

Day 2 Arrive in Rome

Arrive in Rome.  Time permitting, take a panoramic tour of the Eternal City before embarking on the luxurious Celebrity Reflection.
 

Day 3 Messina & Taormina, Sicily, Italy

Explore Messina, a city rich in history, and the connecting point of the “Italian Boot.” In neighboring Taormina, climb to the mountaintop Greek Theater with its spectacular views of the Mediterranean and Mt. Etna. Enjoy a gelato while shopping or simply wander the streets with the occasional breathtaking view over the cliffs to the seaside below.
 

Day 4 Valletta, Malta

Paul was shipwrecked on Malta around 60 AD (Acts 9). After the Knights of St. John successfully defended Malta against a massive Ottoman siege in 1565, they built the fortified town of Valetta, naming it after their leader. Explore the Barrakka Gardens which were built on a bastion of the city and offer a breathtaking view of the Grand Harbor.
 

Day 5 At Sea

Enjoy a day at sea on the Celebrity Reflection.

Day 6 Mykonos, Greece (on own)

Have a delightful day exploring the exceptional beauty and culture of the Greek island of Mykonos with its lovely bays and beaches, distinctive whitewashed structures, and cobblestone streets.

Shore excursions are booked through Celebrity.
 

Day 7 Rhodes, Greece

Paul visited Rhodes briefly on his way to Jerusalem at the end of his third missionary journey. Over 1,200 years later when Jerusalem fell during the Crusades, the Knights of St. John fled to the island of Rhodes, where they ruled for two centuries. Suleiman the Magnificent finally captured the island, but lost 50,000 men in the campaign. The castles and old town built by the knights are still impressive today.
 

Day 8 Santorini, Greece (on own)

Visit Santorini, one of the most beautiful of the Greek islands. Its picturesque whitewashed villages with brilliant blue domes dot the cliffs above the Aegean Sea. The island itself perches on the edges of a volcano whose eruption 3,500 years ago is thought to have led to the collapse of the Minoan civilization. Shore excursions are booked through Royal Caribbean.
 

Day 9 Athens & Corinth, Greece

The architectural splendors of the ancient city of Athens are as magical as ever. View the world-renowned Acropolis, the Propylaea, and the Parthenon. Time permitting, view Mars Hill where Paul debated with the intellectual community of his day. Walk among the ruins of the Agora, the ancient market place and center of Athenian public life. You will view the Olympic Stadium, home of the Olympics. Travel to Corinth (Acts 18), a city that inspired St. Paul’s most familiar letter. You will visit the Archaeological Museum, the Market Place, and Temples. Walk among the ruins and stand on the Bema where Paul stood. Read Paul’s letter to the Corinthians and visualize his address to the Gentiles as he began the task of building Corinth’s church.
 

Day 10 At Sea

Enjoy a day at Sea on the Celebrity Reflection.

Day 11 Naples & Pompeii, Italy

Arrive in Naples, a dazzling city perched on a beautiful rock coast.  Paul landed in the bay of Naples on his way to Rome. You can journey inland to ancient Pompeii, dating almost to the time of Paul, where you can see the spectacular ruins that were covered by ash from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79.
